In August 2009, the oil-trunk pipeline Vankorskoye field — KNPS Purpe, 820 mm dia. was put into operation, providing oil transfer from Vankorskoye field of Oil Company Rosneft to oil-trunk system of Transneft AK OAO. For the first time a pipeline was subjected to full-scale test, including hydro-test of above-ground pipeline section 228,7 km long and pneumatic test of underground, trenched pipeline section 327,8 km long. Such works required state-of-the-art scientific and technical approach in the field of strength theory, metrological technique, electronics and compressoring. Pneumo-testing allowed putting the oil pipeline into operation in-time, assuring its high quality.
