‘The latest hydraulic pressure testing of pipelines carried out by TGK-9 detected fifty-three different defects in them, eleven of which still haven’t been eliminated. Nevertheless, all the repairs will probably have been completed by September 15, 2008,’ TGK-9 Production Director in Sverdlovsk Region Leonid Soloviev said in the course of a press conference. The executive also reported some 7.5 kilometers of pipelines would be replaced altogether. So far, only four kilometers of pipelines were actually replaced, however.
