ESPO pipeline pumps $200m into treasuries of Far Eastern Territories

ESPO pipeline: By the end of 2014, Transneft will have contributed over RUB3.5bn ($77.8m) in taxes to the Primortsky Territory as Russia’s Far East begins to benefit from the construction of the Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean (ESPO) pipeline. The pipeline crosses Khabarovsk and the Amur region as well as Primorsky and between them the three territories are set to receive a windfall of more than $200m from the project. ITAR-TASS
