Under the 2018 development program, Transneft Siberia intends to replace and launch 130.91 km of linear portions of the oil trunk pipeline as well as to technically upgrade and build new production facilities at oil pumping stations (PS). Apart from that, it is planned to construct residential houses for the Company’s employees.
During the year, Transneft Siberia will technically upgrade 6 linear telemechanics systems and 2 automated process control systems at its facilities. In particular, it is planned to put new automation systems in operation at the Salym-2 OPS of Nefteyugansk Oil Trunk Pipeline Directorate (OTPD) and the Kedrovoe-2 OPS affiliated with Tobolsk OTPD.
Four automated pressure control systems at the outlets of main pump houses and four centralised emergency control automation systems of OTP will come under technical upgrading at oil pumping stations. Two leak detection systems are to be upgraded in the linear section of oil trunk pipelines.
Furthermore, it is planned to construct and commission a new indoor switchgear at the Salym-2 PS affiliated with Nefteyugansk OTPD, a new building for the trunk pipeline pump house at Nizhnevartovskaya LODS within Nizhnevartovsk OTPD. Transneft Siberia will continue technical upgrading of its tank farms. The works have been scheduled for 11 oil storage tanks, with two of them — No. 9 at Torgili LODS (Tyumen OTPD) and No. 3 at Urievskaya LODS (part of Nizhnevartovsk OTPD) — to be put into operation this year.
In an effort to offer social support to its employees, Transneft Siberia has been constructing residential houses at settlements close to the Company’s production facilities. A 36-apartment house is under construction at the Sentyabrsky settlement (Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District – Yugra), and a 48-apartment house is being built at the Vyngapurovsky settlement (Yamal-Nenets Autonomous District). Both facilities will be commissioned in 2018.
