Transportation of the Russian oil


Choosing new objects for the increase of the resource base of the company and providing oil production growth it is necessary to take into account the possibility of further transport of the oil produced. Considering the existing and planned infrastructure allows us a more substantial approach to the work out of the strategy of the company development both in terms of planning

obtaining new actives and starting industrial exploitation of new deposits and in terms of assessment of the cost of the deposit exploitation together with the supposed participation in the development of transportation schemes shared with other deposit exploiters.

The geoinformational system is realized by means of Arc View 3.3 . Thanks to the well-developed functional ability of geoinformational technologies it can be easily integrated into the existing informational system of the company. The system represents the existing and the planned nodular and communication infrastructure of the pipeline, railway and water (internal and offshore) transport of oil to the inner and outer markets, it also represents the infrastructure of oil processing within the territory of Russia and of 48 neighbouring countries. The information includes the data of the participants of the oil market, the extent of the oil processed and exported for the years 2002 – 2004. The characteristic of the main pipelines has been verified by the experts of “Transneft”.

The map was presented at the Second Pipeline Forum in Moscow on May 27-28, 2003

The objects represented on the map and in the geo-informational system characterize possible ways of transporting Russian oil to the consumers.

  • Main pipelines belonging to 15 Russian joint stock companies located on the territory of 32 foreign countries;
  • Rating and pumping stations – 400 on the territory of Russia and 128 – abroad;
  • Export stations at the pipelines – 16;
  • Railway stations of discharge – loading (слив-налив) of oil – 298 in Russia and 21 abroad;
  • Oil processing enterprises – 47 in Russia and 314 abroad;
  • Tank sea and river oil loading terminals – 29 in Russia and 108 abroad.

Areas of oil production on the Russian territory and in the neighboring states are given. Off shore ways of oil transportation, including the schemes of export by the North Sea Route and by other existing and planned routes escaping the system of main pipelines of the joint-stock company “Transneft” are indicated. The limiting conditions of the water transportation of oil: the ice schedule, the tank carrying power limit, the seasonal limitations of transportation and production – are indicated.
