The OAO Russian Railways hopes very soon to increase oil shipments to China up to 70 million tonnes
The OAO Russian Railways (RZhD) hopes very soon to increase oil shipments to China up to 70 million tonnes annually by updating the Karymskaya-Zabaikalsk railway section, the RZhD press service said on Tuesday referring to the company president Gennadi FadeYev. For comparison's sake, in 2005 the company is going to ship to China ten million tonnes of oil against six million tonnes a year before. The main route to China -- Karymskaya-Zabaikalsk - is a 375-kilometer one-track section on locomotive traction. Fadeyev said that, at a recent conference on socio-economic development of the Ural federal district, the second track will be laid by 2007 and electric traction introduced, giving "Russia a mighty outlet to China". "The Karymskaya-Zabaikalsk electrified two-track section will carry 70 million tonnes annually. It is a fine commercial project to be repaid in four years", Fadeyev said. As oil shipments boost, the RZhD also hopes for a greater load to be put on the Baikal-Amur trunk railroad. For that the RZhD, upon agreement with the Transneft company, is building an overpass near the city of Krasnoyarsk (Uyar station) with pipe pumping to reach six million tonnes annually. "The oil will pass along the Baikal-Amur mainline to the Komsomolsk oil refinery (in the lower reaches of the Amur river in the east of the Khabarovsk region). Part of that oil may go to the Khabarovsk refinery. It will be an excellent opportunity to load the Baikal-Amur mainline and create jobs in the east of Russia", Fadeyev believes.
