Caspian Pipeline Consortium (CPC)


Tekfen Construction and Installation Co., Inc.

Tekfen Portion:






CPC is the first post-Soviet era export project of Kazakhstan, transporting rich Tengiz oil to world markets through Russia’s Novorossisk Terminal on the Black Sea Coast. Pipeline will also be transporting the production from other fields in Kazakhstan such as Kashagan and Karachaganak. Russian produced volumes will also be fed to the pipeline through various tie-in points in Russia along the route.

The total length of the pipeline between Tengiz Field and Novorossisk Terminal is 1.510 km with an invested amount of US$ 2,6 billion. The amount of crude oil expected to flow through the pipeline is 28 million t per year.

Tekfen’s scope covered the construction of 452 km, 40” and 28” pipeline (partly rehabilitation, partly new-built) starting from Tengiz Field and reaching Russian / Kazakh border over the north of the Caspian Sea; revamping of the Tengiz Pump Station and construction of a new Pump Station at Atyrau. Pipeline’s original throughput capacity, 28 MTA will ramp up to its final, 67 MTA, with the construction of additional pump stations.
