Transneft Upper Volga has connected a reconstructed section containing an underwater crossing of the Neznayka River’s small watercourse to the Ring Petroleum Products Trunk Pipeline (RPPTP) around Moscow. The works were conducted in Odintsovsky District of Moscow Region.
The reconstruction of the section began in August 2018. Within the set of measures, the pipeline‘s sections for pumping motor petrol, diesel fuel and aircraft fuel were installed and dismantled. A planned replacement of 391 metres of the petroleum products trunk pipeline was carried out within the small watercourse of the Neznayka River.
After the works were completed, Transneft Upper Volga connected the newly revamped pipeline section to the operating petroleum products trunk pipeline.
The reconstruction of the RPPTP’s section was implemented as part of the development programme for the Ring Petroleum Products Trunk Pipeline around Moscow and the Moscow Aviation Hub in order to increase the volume of petroleum products transported and loaded for consumers of the capital region.
The goal is to increase reliability and ensure uninterrupted petroleum products transportation through Transneft’s petroleum products trunk pipeline system.
