Transneft has completed surveying work for a new pipeline to link oil-rich parts of Siberia to northwestern Russia
State-owned oil pipeline monopoly Transneft has completed surveying work for a new pipeline to link oil-rich parts of Siberia to northwestern Russia, regional officials said Thursday. The press service for the Nenets Autonomous Area in Russia's far north said surveying had been carried out by VNIIST, the national scientific research institute for construction and operation of fuel and power sector pipelines and facilities. VNIIST said surveying was conducted under complicated conditions due to a lack of infrastructure in the region, lack of special equipment, and difficult weather conditions. A feasibility study for the 290-mile pipeline will be completed in late 2006. Shareholders approved investment in construction of the pipeline at 850.8 million rubles (about $30.4 million) at their annual meeting in November 2005. The Haryaga-Indiga pipeline was originally seen as the first phase of a larger Western Siberia-Murmansk oil pipeline to pump oil from Western Siberia to Murmansk, a permanently ice-free port on the Barents Sea, for trans-shipment to Europe and the United States. But later Transneft said it would be a separate pipeline
