CPP has completed over 100,000 kilometers of pipeline installation in Africa, Middle East, Russia, and Asia. The Company is confident that CPP will meet with worldclass standards for construction and installation of pipelines. This project is valued more than Baht 9 billion and will be completed within 30 months, and ready for use by the fourth quarter of 2021".

The pipeline installation will run 342 kilometers, covering 55 sub-districts (Tumbols), 18 districts (Amphurs), and 5 provinces, starting from Amphur Saohi, Saraburi ending at Amphur Baanpai Khonkaen, inclusive of a 140-million-liter oil storage terminal at Baanpai Khonkaen.

Once completed, the transportation of oil by land will be reduced by 88,000 trips per year, or a saving of over 15.4 million liters per year while improving efficiency of oil transport. Moreover, it will help to improve safety, reduce accidents on the roads, and reduce road maintenance costs.

(CPP) are jointly conducting a feasibility study in expanding the installation of the oil pipelines to the Lao Peoples' Democratic Republic to increase the efficiency of exporting oil to the country. Currently, the country is importing over 1,200 million liters of oil from Thailand with increasing trends due to growing economic and social status of the country.

When completed, the benefits will include lowered oil price, improved safety in transport, and reduce impact on environment and result in expansion of the regional economy. The sustainability in oil resource will make our country more competitive and become the center of energy for the ASEAN region", Panu added.
