From 2001 through July 31, 2018, 557,031,097 net tons of crude oil were delivered to the world markets by the Tengiz-Novorossiysk pipeline system. 484,574,486 tons of that amount of crude oil come from Kazakhstani Shippers and 72,456,611 tons of “black gold” were produced in Russia.
The CPC pipeline system is one of the largest investment projects with foreign capital in the energy sector in the CIS. Length of the Tengiz–Novorossiysk Pipeline is 1,511 km; it transports over two thirds of all Kazakhstan export crude, as well as crude from Russian oil fields, including the Caspian Region. CPC Marine Terminal is equipped with three Single Point Moorings (SPM) that allow to load tankers safely at a significant distance offshore, also amid poor weather conditions.
