Caption: Constructing an oil pipeline. This is the Eastern Siberia-Pacific Ocean (ESPO) pipeline, which will export Russian crude oil to East Asian countries such as China, Japan and Korea. Construction of the 4700-kilometre-long pipeline began in April 2006. This project involves using satellite equipment for maximum precision and crossing 107 rivers and lakes. This pipeline is due for completion in 2017. Photographed at the Angara River in Siberia, Russia, in May 2007.
