Transneft Siberia conducts technical upgrading of the telemetry system of Kholmogory – Klin oil trunk pipeline (OTP) in Surgut Oil Trunk Pipelines Directorate.
Reconstruction of the oil pipeline telemetry system started in February 2016. The working equipment is operated from 1997; it has exhausted its life span and does not comply with the standards and the requirements of Transneft.
Upon reconstruction relay valves control cabinets, telemetry controllers, primary detectors are subject to replacement. In total 17 control points should be replaced. At the present time overhead cable trays, cables, telemetry cabinets in monitoring and control enclosures and the bulk of primary detectors have been assembled.
In the short term installation and connection of pipeline potential sensors, voltage monitoring relays, installation of accumulators of pipeline telemetry communication controllers is planned. Installation of telemetry cabinets produced by the production hub of the process control system of Transneft Upper Volga is conducted.
The technical upgrading of the telemetry system of Kholmogory – Klin OTP is performed for the purpose of bringing the level of the linear portion’s telemetry into compliance with the requirements of the standards of Transneft and securing reliability of the operated oil pipeline section.
Commissioning of the telemetry system of Kholmogory – Klin OTP is planned for October 2017.
