Caspian Pipeline Consortium (CPC) is a result of conjoint effort of Russia, Kazakhstan and the world's leading oil companies: one and a half thousand kilometers of the main oil pipeline carrying raw oil from Tengiz oil field in western Kazakhstan to the port of Novorossiysk on the Russian coast of the Black Sea (South Ozereyevka terminal) to be sold at global markets.
Initially, CPC project was aiming to double the line capacity. 2010 was marked by a decision to start work on the expansion of existing capacities from existing 28 to possible 67 million tons of oil per annum. For this purpose 10 new pumping stations and a third tanker loading unit at the Marine Terminal were to be commissioned and additional storage tanks for crude oil constructed. An official ceremony devoted to the start of the construction work took place in July 2011.
VELESSTROY participation in CPC oil pipeline expansion.
VELESSTROY participated in the CPC expansion project, initially committing only to construct three pumping stations in Krasnodar Krai. Later, however, CPC has greatly expanded the package of construction projects, recognizing Velesstroy as one of the most reliable partners.
As part of the project, our team has built: PS No. 6, PS No. 7, PS No. 8 and PS No. A – NPS – 4A, as well as a tank farm, which includes 4 oil storage tanks 100,000 cubic meters each. For the first time in Russia, the construction of tanks of such a capacity for the oil and gas industry was applied.
