In December, 2009 the object of oil pipeline system “Eastern Siberia – Pacific Ocean” was introduced to work. As well as that, the first tanker with oil of the type “ESPO” was loaded.

Current projects


TRANSNEFT JSC is realizing the second step of the project of East Siberia – Pacific Ocean pipeline system, that presupposes building of a main trunk pipeline at the section of oil pipeline system named Skovorodino – Kozmino SMNP (ESPO-2) and subsequent increase of capacity of Taishet GNPS – Skovorodino NPS line which had already been built, up to 50 million tons of oil per year (extension of ESPO-1).


The BPS-2 project includes building of a trunk pipeline of 1020/1067 mm diameter and of 1.000 km total length, of capacity of 30 million tons of oil per year, building of two oil pipeline systems, reconstruction of the following functioning oil pipeline systems: Unecha OPS No.1, Andreapol OPS No.5, building of Ust-Luga petroleum tank farm.

Purpe – Samotlor

The aim of the project is to ensure the increase of the volumes of oil transfer through the pipeline system “Eastern Siberia – Pacific Ocean” from Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug and the North of Krasnoyarsk Krai, including the Vankor Field.

Zapolyarye – Purpe

The construction of the oil pipeline Zapolyarye – Purpe (overall capacity of 45 million tons per year) is planned in order to transport the oil from new basins of Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug and the North of Krasnoyarsk Krai.

Tihoretsk – Tuapse-2

The project of construction of oil pipeline Tihoretsk – Tuapse-2 is meant for the increase of the volume of oil deliveries to the Tuapse oil refining plant. The estimated length of the oil pipeline will be 247 km, the capacity will be 12 million tons per year.

The amplification of CPC

The oil pipeline Tengiz – Novorossiysk of the Caspian Pipeline Consortium (CPC) is intended for the export transportation of Russia’s and Kazakhstan’s oil through the sea terminal of CPC.

Perspective projects

The project “South

It is the project of construction of the oil product pipeline “Syzran – Saratov – Volgograd – Novorossiysk”.


The realization of the project Burgas – Alexandroupolis will create a new route, which will permit to transport Russian and Caspian oil from the ports of Black Sea to the port of Burgas (Bulgaria) in tankers and afterwards to Alexandroupolis (Greece) via oil pipeline, with further transshipment into tankers and transportation to the world markets.


The length of the oil pipeline will be 550 km, the capacity is estimated to be 50 million tons per year. The project is meant to create a competitive route of oil transportation and solve the problem of the overloaded straits of Bosphorus and Dardanelles.
