Date of publication: 26 March 2019

Transneft PCD has completed works on the service connection of a newly constructed section with a length of more than 9.5 km to the reconstructed Kuibyshev – Unecha – Mozyr-1 oil trunk pipeline in Tambov Region. 

Construction works on the connected section started in December 2017. 4 crossings with utility lines such as a product pipeline and communication cables were performed during the construction.

The Kuybyshev – Unecha – Mozyr-1 pipeline revamping is being carried out as part of Transneft’s technical upgrading programme in order to increase reliability and environmental safety of the pipeline operation.

At present, the pipeline route whose sections are under revamping, is being prepared for the flood period: plank roads have been restored, spectacle blinds have been installed on pipe ends, discharge facilities have been installed in places of possible flooding and existing crossings and protection structures have been inspected and repaired.
