Russia and Japan agree on East Siberian oil pipeline

Jul 17, 2006 02:00 AM

Russia and Japan agreed on a project to build the East Siberia-Pacific oil pipeline, the Japanese premier said rounding up a G8 summit in St Petersburg.
"Russia and Japan agreed to cooperate on the pipeline from East Siberia to the Pacific," Junichiro Koizumi said. "It will be a mutually advantageous project."

The pipeline is slated to pump up to 80 mm tons of crude a year (1.6 mm bpd) from Siberia to Russia's Far East, which will then be exported to the Asia-Pacific region with a branch going to energy-hungry China.
The first stage of the project will connect Taishet in the Irkutsk Region to Skovorodino in the Amur Region in the Far East.

The cost of the first stage was initially estimated at $ 6.5 bn.
Koizumi said the cooperation between the two countries' governments and businessmen was crucial for the project.
