“On November 29, 2022, work was completed in full to replace the buoyancy tank (TP) on the TPU-2.

Hydrostatic tests successfully completed.

The TPU is ready to transship oil to tankers,” the message on the company’s website says.

CPC stopped shipments from two TLU-1 and TLU-2 TLUs in August 2022 after cracks were discovered at these TLUs in the attachment points of the underwater sleeves to the buoyancy tanks.

VPU-1 was put into operation after repair on November 11, 2022.
