Abstract: The reinstatement of the Syrian oil pipeline system is a mandatory initial step in the recovery of the Syrian oil industry. This article discusses the principles and challenges of the reinstatement of the Syrian oil pipeline based on techni- cal assessment of the current state of the pipeline through comparing the hyd-raulic gradient line with the current allowable maximum pressure — determi- ning the main quantitative indicator of the oil pipeline reinstatement project and the range of its allowable change — determining the best economic solution for the current state of the Syrian economy costs by gradually increasing the flow rate
