At the sea terminal of the Caspian Pipeline Consortium near Novorossiysk loaded 3000th tanker from the commissioning of the pipeline system. Jubilee was a tanker ship CE-NIRIIS 106504 deadweight tonnes (shipowner Marine Trust LTD, Greece).
The first tanker at the terminal CTC has been downloaded 13 October 2001. Altogether during the operation of the Tengiz-Novorossiysk shipped to export more than 322 million tons of Kazakh and Russian oil from them over the past year — 30.6 million tons. Over the lifetime of the marine terminal consortium has worked without a single accident. Through the use of modern technologies and equipment, as well as stable performance in the marine terminal is a three-time winner of the International Award "Oil Terminal" in the category "Best Technological equipment", "reliable partner" and "Stability 2012".
Loading of tankers at the terminal is via two point mooring devices (RCD), which can handle crude oil the most environmentally friendly way at a distance from the coast, including in adverse weather conditions. As part of increasing the capacity of the CPC pipeline system in the past, it was found the third VPU, a perfect design: a multi-stage system to prevent possible oil leaks can facilitate cargo handling large vessels and minimizes the risk of accidents at sea. Additional TLU will increase the amount of oil shipped during annual decommissioning of one of the moorings in order to conduct preventative maintenance.
CPC pipeline system — one of the largest investment projects in the energy sector with the participation of foreign capital in the CIS. The pipeline, which linked the oil fields in Western Kazakhstan with the Marine Terminal in Novorossiysk is 1,511 km.
The expansion project involves the upgrading of 5-existing and the construction of 10 additional pump stations (2 — on the territory of the Republic of Kazakhstan, 8 — in the Russian Federation), the building in addition to the existing four of six tanks (capacity of 100 thousand cubic meters. Meters each) for oil storage near Novorossiysk and a third mooring at the CPC Marine Terminal, and the replacement of 88-km section of the pipeline on the territory of Kazakhstan to the pipe of larger diameter. Total investment in the project will amount to 5.4 billion U.S. dollars.
