An extended meeting of LUKOIL’s and Transneft’s representatives took place at the production hub for plant control systems (PH PCS) and operational facility of Starolikeyevo LODS in Kstovsky District of Nizhny Novgorod Region.
The possibility of supplying oil and petroleum products quantity and quality metering systems (OQQMS) equipment manufactured by Transneft Upper Volga to LUKOIL’s facilities was the meeting’s main topic. The LUKOIL specialists were shown the OQQMS No. 1252 manufactured by Trasneftemash Factory of Velikiye Luki, currently operated at Starolikeyevo LODS, which has a data processing system (DPS) based on the TN-01 computing complexes manufactured by PCS production hub. The LUKOIL representatives examined all stages of DPS manufacturing and discussed the setup and certification of the manufactured products.
Using domestically manufactured components, such as Regul-500 programmable logic controllers and Alfa Platforma software, is among the main DPS advantages.
The presented products fully meet requirements of the Russian legislation governing metrological support of oil and petroleum products metering operations as well as Transneft’s information security requirements.
The meeting showcased the progress the companies have made within joint import substitution efforts. LUKOIL’s representatives expressed their interest in the equipment and discussed its prospective testing.
Transneft also cooperates with Gazprom Neft in this area. In July 2018, a OQQMS DPS developed for Gazprom Neft has been shipped to the company’s facility. Installation and commissioning activities for conducting pilot runs of the system are scheduled for this August.
