“…A very long, lazy, black, irony snake, lively spirited and sensitive when pumps are on. He lengthens when heat and compresses when cold, describing everlasting, lazy movements that embody the very essence of his nature.” – (Eng. Corneliu Toroceanu)
The Crude Oil National Transport System (N.T.S.) is the ensemble of interconnected major pipelines, providing the collection of the crude oil from the extraction sites or import crude and their routing from the sites they have been delivered by the producers/importers towards the processing units.
Acting as concessionnaire of the N.T.S., CONPET S.A. is legally bound to provide to all applicants – authorized legal persons, free access to the system’s available throughput, under equal conditions, in a non-discriminatory and transparent manner.
The N.T.S. is currently 3.800 km in length and is being divided into four major sub-systems. The system’s transport throughput is approximately 27.5 million tons/year.
