"We would expect the pipeline to continue to operate," he told analysts. "It’s an important source of supply — over 1 million b/d — into a world which right now really needs that oil supply." He stressed that governments around the world are "looking to keep markets well supplied to try to stabilize prices."More than 1 million b/d of Kazakh crude is transported via the CPC pipeline, that runs from the 650,000 b/d Tengiz oil field, operated by Chevron, to the Russian Black Sea port of Novorossiysk.Chevron has a 15% stake in the pipeline. Russian pipeline operator Transneft is the largest shareholder with a 24% stake, while Exxon Mobil and Shell are also minority partners.
