The Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean oil pipeline runs from Taishet in the Irkutsk region to the oil port of Kozmino in the Primorsky Territory. The 4,740-kilometre pipeline links oil field in Western and Eastern Siberia with markets in the Asia-Pacific region and the United States. The 2,047-kilometre second line of the ESPO-2 pipeline runs via Far Eastern territories.
In the first six months of 2014, a total of 11.1 million tonnes of oil was pumped to the port of Kozmino via ESPO-2. From Kozmino, oil is shipped to nine countries of the Asia Pacific region by oil tankers. The biggest oil buyers are Japan, China and South Korea. In the second half of 2014, it is planned to export 11.6 million tonnes of oil from the Kozmino port. With these plans implemented, annual oil exports via Kozmino will reach 23 million tonnes.
