Cardenas-Matanzas Pipeline to Undergo Repair

HAVANA TIMES, April 26 — The Cuban state-run oil company Cupet began repairing its deteriorated Cardenas-Matanzas pipeline as part of gradual improvements being made in that industry on the island, reports AFP.

Evidence of marked deterioration after eleven years of service “requires the use of viscosity-reducing substances, thereby increasing costs,” said company executives.

The pipeline runs 24 miles from the city of Cardenas to the city of Matanzas, whose port harbors many supertankers that later transport the crude to a refinery operated by Cuba and Venezuela in Cienfuegos, on the island’s southern coast.
