KOMSOMOLSK-ON-AMUR, October 24 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Energy Ministry, pipeline monopoly Transneft and oil companies are considering an increase in the throughput of the East Siberia-Pacific Ocean pipeline, Transneft President Nikolai Tokarev told the media.
“The Energy Ministry and Transneft, as well as the oil community in general, are interested in addressing their problems,” he said.
Tokarev said the throughput of the ESPO-1 oil pipeline will be about 60 million tonnes, and of ESPO-2, about 30-35 million tonnes.
