Construction of the pipeline Arctic — purpe

The investment project for the construction of an oil pipeline Arctic — purpe implemented to transport oil from the fields in the Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Area and northern Krasnoyarsk Territory, including Vankor, Russian refineries and export.
The project is implemented by order of the Government of the Russian Federation of 22.04.2010 № 635-r series in two stages with the development and construction of new fields. The route passes through the Yamal-Nenets and Khanty-Mansi autonomous districts of Tyumen region.

  The first stage (Trunk pipeline "purpe-Samotlor" capacity of 25 million tons of oil a year length of 429 km), commissioned in 2011.
  Second leg (Trunk pipeline "Arctic-purpe" capacity of 45 million tons per year, the length of 488 km) is realized in several stages from south to north:
Phase I-section from g.Tarko-Sale to pos.Purpe;

Stage II-section of the village. Novozapolyarny to g.Tarko-Sale with completion in Q4 2015;

Phase III-section from MOPS "Arctic" to the village. Novozapolyarny with completion in Q4 2016.


The pipeline is laid in a complex ladshafte northern Yamal-Nenets AO: route route mostly runs along the marshy areas (wetlands crossings are more than 250 km), marked areas of continuous and discontinuous permafrost, Highway 21 crosses the highway, 90 water hazards, including including such major rivers as the Pur and Taz.

This is why objects Purpe — Samotlor concentrated in itself all the cutting-edge science in the field of pipeline transportation of oil. Used in the construction of the latest technological and technical solutions, advanced equipment, high-quality components and materials engineering. The new line is designed to provide reliable, efficient, economically and environmentally justified in northern latitudes and permafrost transport of hydrocarbons with minimal impact on the local environment: Has an overpass construction, reindeer trails provided omissions.



Currently completed the first section of pipe between g.Tarko-Sale and item purpe, at the press conference, said the general director of "Sibnefteprovod" Yuri Bogatencov. The first pipes of a new oil pipeline were welded in March 2012. By January 2013, the builders "put together" in a single lash of 46 kilometers, of which 36.6 km of underground and 9.3 kilometers for ground installation. On today trenched 28 kilometers pipe on special supports — 3.6 kilometers. Built an underwater oil pipeline crossing the river purpe traditional trench method, the company proceeds to the second phase of construction.

It should be noted that for the northern transporting viscous oil must be heated to 60 degrees. Throughout the route for this purpose will be constructed paragraphs heating oil. In the first stage of the two, only planned to build seven such points.

On the way pipeline PUROVSKY taiga gradually replaced by Taz tundra.



Excavation work on the track.








North of the village purpe islands are already frozen soil to warm the pipe does not melt it implemented technology overpass pads — pipeline rise above the ground on special supports. 46-km section between p.Purpe and g.Tarko-Sale on this technology built 3.6 km. run, in the world there are two similar pipeline in Alaska and Vanqor.












Threading the siphon on the submerged crossing the river purpe


Oil pumping station "purpe" near the village of the same name, is run by the Office of the November main oil pipelines. The station has earned in 2011 as part of the completed project "Purpe — Samotlor", a new project is built point-heating oil, expanded storage tanks.


PS Feb. 6 of "Sibnefteprovod" started construction of pumping station number 2 on the pipeline Arctic — purpe. The station building in Korotchaevo contractor Ltd. "Velesstroy." Preparatory work on clearing the site for future facilities were started at the end of last year. Now in full swing shift assembly of a residential village. At this time the builders rejected the use of traditional shift wagons in favor of residential mobile buildings. Already assembled administrative complex, dining room, two dormitories for workers. In a few days will be read
y laundry and women’s dormitory.
Now the manufacturing facility are static test piles for the tanks. It is planned to build a twelve tanks. Two of them — the capacity of five thousand cubic meters — shock relief. According to the approved schedule, the new pumping station is planned to be commissioned in October 2015.
