The work was performed in the scope of technical upgrading and replacing of obsolete equipment. The oil depot is comprised by four booster stations, with three of them been already upgraded and put into operation.
The PBPS-3 of the Tikhoretsk-Novorossiysk-2 oil trunk pipeline has now been connected to the main pipe unit and is in performance testing mode.
