11,1 billion roubles will be directed on increasing pipelines reliability by "Bashneft" company. Financing is planned within the limits of the targeted program for 2013-2017.

According to the program within five years 1258 kilometres of pipelines will be renewed and at 250 kilometres overhaul repair will be performed. Thus the company expects to reduce products loss to the minimum due to equipment failures and accidents and to minimise negative influence on ecology. In 85 % of cases field pipelines fail because of corrosion, "Bashneft" informs.

Current year "Bashneft" spent more than 1 billion roubles for increasing pipelines reliability. 58,1 kilometres of pipelines were renewed and 73,2 kilometres underwent overhaul repair.
