Tyumenneftegaz building oil pipeline from Russia's Uvat area

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Nov. 29 -- TNK-BP subsidiary OAO Tyumenneftegaz (TNG) has begun construction of a 76.5 km crude oil pipeline to connect Kalchinskoye field in the Uvat region of Russia's Tyumen Oblast with the Demyanskaya system, according to Interfax news agency.

The 720 mm pipeline will have a throughput capacity of 10-12 million tonnes/year (mty) of oil. The 1 billion ruble pipeline—up from 300 million rubles originally—is part of TNK-BP's development of Uvat group fields.

General contractor ZAO Strymontazh (Yugorsk) began pipeline construction this month, with spreads working near Turtas township, Demyanskoye village, and Demyanka station. The oil pipeline designer is OAO Giprotyumenneftegaz (Tyumen).

Work is scheduled for completion in July 2005.

Uvat development—to be completed over 20 years—will open a producing region expected to yield more than 10 million tpy of oil.

TNG holds licenses for 10 areas in Tyumen Oblast, including southern areas and those located in the Khanty-Mansiysk and Yamalo-Nenetsk Autonomous Districts.
