DOPCO oil pipeline is a stable and economical energy transport system unaffected by climate, time, and traffic conditions.
The oil transportation system is divided into two stages. The first stage is petroleum transportation ranging from the oil refinery area to the terminal storage area of the consuming area. The second stage is transportation from the petrol station to the customer (gas station, distributor, small factory, etc). DOPCO apply to the first stage of the transportation.
Established a nationwide oil pipeline construction plan and constructed five oil refineries including Ulsan, Yeosu etc and pipelines connecting six cities such as Seoul, Daejein,Daegu,Gwangju etc.
Completed Gyeongin pipeline connecting Incheon → Goyang and Gimpo airports, and started to supply light oil and aviation fuel through pipeline
Completion of North-South pipeline and Pangyo terminal connecting Yeosu / Ulsan → Seongnam and completion of Phase 1 national pipeline construction project
Consolidated pipeline projects across the country through the DOPCO's pipeline integration by merging Seosan ~ Cheonan Pipeline, Cheonan Terminal and Dangjin pressurized station
Acquired trans Korea pipeline and repository operation rights for US military oil transportation owned by the Ministry of National Defense
Built and started to operate pipeline for aviation fuel between Incheon and Incheon International Airport in Yeonjongdo
It has the effect of reducing the indirect investment cost by 3% reduction in traffic and density, and mitigating the port burden by transporting 70% of the unloading volume of Incheon Port to the pipeline.
By replacing more than 57% of the nation's petroleum product transportation with pipelines, it has a direct logistics cost of 450 billion won and an indirect logistics cost of 320 billion won.
The terminal and pipeline capacity reaches 4.4 million barrels, resulting in a stockpile equivalent to 6 days' consumption of light oil in Korea.
The anxiety factors in oil supply and demand due to traffic congestion, road breakage and pollution(noise, air, marine) are reduced, resulting in 93,000 tons of carbon dioxide reduction effect. It is the same effect as the planting of 33,480,000 trees.
With underground pipeline, land can be used for roads or arable land. It causes a riffle effect leading to maximization of land use efficiency and establishment of an oil supply system in case of emergency and balanced regional economic development by facilitating supply and demand of petroleum in major base cities.
