Transneft Western Siberia has connected the Omsk – Sokur petroleum products trunk pipeline (PPTP) revamped sections to existing PPTPs. The total length of the revamped sections is about 42 km.

The work was carried out in Omsk Region as part of the technical upgrading and revamping programme for Transneft Western Siberia’s operating facilities. The upgrading of petroleum products pipeline transportation facilities is aimed at improving the PPTP operational reliability and ensuring supplies of agreed diesel fuel volumes to end-users.

The new sections were laid by trenching in parallel with the existing petroleum products pipeline. When replacing the pipe at road crossings, laying was carried out by horizontal auger drilling. To ensure operational reliability of the replaced sections, a pipe of increased strength class was used.

To verify the construction and installation quality, specialists conducted hydraulic tests of the new sections for strength and tightness. The quality of welded joints was checked by radiographic, ultrasonic, visual and instrumental testing. No deviations from regulatory requirements were registered. Stop valve units, power supply and telemechanics systems, main and auxiliary equipment were also installed.

Commissioning of the revamped sections is scheduled for November 2021.
