CJSC Stroytransgaz Completes Its Works on ESPO-2

November 20, 2012

CJSC Stroytransgaz has successfully completed an 88.5 km section of the Eastern Siberia–Pacific Ocean 2 pipeline (ESPO-2), one of Transneft's largest projects. The work began in 2010 and was carried out for Stroynovatsiya LLC, the project’s general contractor.

"ESPO-2 is a strategic project for Transneft. The customer required the highest performance and work quality and we are confident that we have successfully completed the task regardless of the project's extreme conditions,” Anton Rae, CJSC Stroytransgaz CEO pointed out. “In July 2010, our crews working on ESPO-2 achieved world record performance – they completed 301 welded joints in one shift, this being approximately twice as high as the average using the same equipment. It was a great experience for us which is sure to be the best reference possible for our future pipeline projects," he added
