Proceeds from transportation
The strategy provides for:
  • ensuring systematic development of the trunk pipeline system
  • ensuring reception and transportation of petroleum products from newly connected refineries
  • reducing accident rate at trunk pipelines
  • keeping the sulfur contents in the crude oil pumped via the Transneft system within the limits set in the rational routing scheme
  • reducing expenses related to pipeline construction and operation; maintaining the optimum expenditure level
  • excluding discharge of insufficiently treated wastewater
  • decreasing the purchase volumes of imported products
