History At the roots of innovations In Dmitriy I. Mendeleev, an ingenious Russian scientist who discovered, notably, one of the fundamental laws of the universe — the periodic law of chemical elements, put forward the idea to use a pipeline to transfer oil and products of oil refining. Not only he convincingly proved advantages of such means of transport against others, but also formulated the principles of its construction. The idea was born during his visit to the oil field in Baku where the extracted oil was transported to refineries in leather bottles and barrels on araba carts drawn by horses, camels or mules. It provided work to ten thousand carriers, but the transport really was worth gold. The price of each pood 16 kg of the extracted crude was 3 kopecks at the fields, whereas its transportation to the Black City of Baku at the distance of about 10 kilometers cost about 20 kopecks.
