CPC launches new pipeline section in Kazakhstan.

By bne IntelliNews June 24, 2010
Caspian Pipeline Consortium (CPC) launched a new 130-km long pipeline. The section is designed and built to follow a safer bypass route in lieu of the old original section constructed in 1991. The old pipeline 116-km long passed too close to the Caspian Sea. To remind you, the CPC owns and operates a pipeline from Tengiz oil field to Novorossiysk (known as CPC or KTK pipeline). This is the main exports route for Kazakh oil. The capacity of the pipeline is 32mn tonnes of oil per annum. However, last year, the consortium decided to raise the capacity to 67mn tonnes of oil per annum.
