Moscow, Russian Federation (4E) – Russia has unveiled the final extension of a new $US25 billion ($A24 billion) oil pipeline to the Pacific.

According to internet news the East Siberia-Pacific Ocean (ESPO) link is also expected to expand sales to the United States.

The second leg of the 4,200-kilometre pipe runs from fields west of Lake Baikal to the Pacific port of Kozmino near the northeastern edge of China.

The port – previously connected to East Siberian oil fields by rail – also provides Russia with quick access to Japan and South Korea.
