Transneft Far East, which supplies oil via the second stage of the East Siberia – Pacific Ocean trunk pipeline (ESPO-2), has transported the first 5 million tonnes of oil via the offshoot to the Komsomolsk Refinery.
The operation of the allotment to the Komsomolsk Refinery, which passes through the territories of Amur, Komsomolsk and Solnechny Districts of Khabarovsk Territory, began in July 2019.
The allotment infrastructure includes a 294 km long line, as well as three oil pumping stations (OPS): Komsomolskaya No. 1, Selgon No. 2, and Amurskaya No. 3. The diameter of the pipeline is 530 mm. The line has been fitted with 14 line and 6 coastal stop valve units. The design capacity of the pipeline is 8 million tonnes of oil per year.
The offshoot to the Komsomolsk Refinery was built taking into account the advanced achievements in design, construction and operation of oil pipelines. The facility optimally combines the requirements of operational and environmental safety, it is characterised by a high level of reliability.
Transneft Far East also transports oil from oilfields in Western and Eastern Siberia to the Khabarovsk Refinery. In addition, deliveries are made in the direction of the Kozmino oil port through a custody transfer point located in Nakhodka, Primorye Territory. From there, oil flows to the markets of Asia and the Pacific.
