Bangladesh’s first offshore and onshore integrated pipeline project

China National Petroleum Corporation undertook the construction! Bangladesh’s first! Officially put into commercial operation!

Bangladesh’s first offshore and onshore integrated pipeline project

On March 16, local time, Bangladesh’s Oriental Refinery received the first batch of diesel and crude oil transported by the single-point mooring and double-line pipeline project built by the Pipeline Bureau, marking Bangladesh’s first integrated offshore and onshore An integrated ultra-large oil storage and transportation project began commercial operations.

This project is not only a core project for Bangladesh to achieve its 2041 national development goals, but also a significant achievement made by China and Bangladesh in jointly promoting the “Belt and Road Initiative” initiative. The project received preferential loan support from the Chinese government and financing services from the Export-Import Bank of China and was constructed by the China Petroleum Pipeline Bureau. It reflects the international expansion of China’s entire industry chain in terms of capital, technology, equipment, and construction.

This is the first time that diesel and crude oil have been transported to the Dongfang Refinery since the completion of the project, completely ending the traditional inefficient and environmentally unenvironmental way in which the refinery had to rely on small boats to connect and transport crude oil and diesel to large ships. At the same time, the project shortened the time for unloading and transporting crude oil on a 100,000-ton large tanker from the previous 11 days to about 48 hours, providing an important guarantee for the annual crude oil processing capacity of Dongfang Refinery to be expanded from the current 1.5 million tons to 4.5 million tons.

Hasnat, deputy general manager of Oriental Refinery, said: “Modern oil transportation facilities will make our energy production more efficient and will create more opportunities to expand the production capacity of Oriental Refinery. These efforts will ultimately benefit Bangladesh. We must express our appreciation and gratitude to the Chinese government and the Chinese oil people who have worked hard and efficiently on this project.”

Sun Bijun, the project manager, said that this project, as one of the first important oil and gas storage and transportation projects to be implemented in Bangladesh under the joint construction of the “Belt and Road Initiative”, has greatly eased Bangladesh’s energy tension. The project construction has also created nearly 4,000 jobs in Bangladesh and trained a group of outstanding technical talents for the local area.

In addition, this project effectively promotes the “Made in China” going global. 95% of the core materials and related equipment required for project construction come from China, and my country’s marine engineering equipment technology has also achieved new development.
