CTC launches new pipeline section in Kazakhstan
Azerbaijan, Baku, June 22 / Trend /
The Caspian Pipeline Consortium (CPC) has commissioned a new 130-kilometer section of the main oil pipeline from Tengiz Pumping Station. The pipeline was designed and built as a safer alternative to a 116-kilometer section built in 1991, which was often damaged by heavy floods.
The pipeline has successfully passed hydraulic tests. Its commissioning will increase the CTC pipeline system's reliability and security, as well as provide the necessary technical parameters to increase the project's capacity to 67 million tons a year.
