The Baltic Pipeline System has reached the rated annual capacity of 65 million tonnes
The Baltic Pipeline System has reached the rated annual capacity of 65 million tonnes. “This is an outstanding piece of Russian infrastructure by all parameters. The mission was accomplished on time, and the rated capacity of 65 million tonnes has been reached,” Industry and Energy Minister Viktor Khristenko said at the Friday ceremony. The Baltic Pipeline System is an efficient route for the deliveries of oil from the Timano-Pechora, West Siberia and Urals-Volga deposits through the Russian seaport of Primorsk to the main European oil trade and refinery center, Rotterdam. Estimations done by German, American and Russian specialists showed that oil shipments to Rotterdam through Primorsk are more beneficial than shipments through Ventspils, Butinge, Muugu and Porvoo. For instance, it costs $3-5 less to supply one ton of oil through Primorsk than through Ventspils. The Baltic Pipeline System will compensate the deficit of oil shipment facilities in Russia. The project was launched in 1997, and the first section of the system with the annual capacity of 12 million tonnes was commissioned in December 2001. The system capacity was enlarged by more than five times in 4.5 years.
