He recalled that the work to increase the throughput capacity of the North project began in autumn of the previous year. "Today, the displacement of oil and the cleaning of the main pipeline are carried out at the section from the plant KINEF in Kirishy to the specialized oil-loading seaport of Primorsk.

V. Yakimov emphasized that this is a time-consuming and technically difficult process, because the issue of the fuel quality at the end point is important. He noted that more than 240 km must be passed, and it is planned to complete the works before the end of the year.
