Transneft Siberia Finishes Technical Upgrading of Facilities at Salym-2 PS

Date of publication: 21 December 2018

Nefteyugansk Oil Trunk Pipeline Directorate (OTPD) of Transneft Siberia has finished a set of construction, installation and commissioning works as part of technical upgrading of the automated process control system (PCS) and revamping of the power supply system, including the construction of an indoor switchgear (ISG), at Salym-2 oil pumping station (OPS).

The previous system of automation, operated since 1995, was the last relay system in Nefteyugansk OTPD. The indoor switchgear was in operation for 43 years, from the moment the oil pumping station was commissioned, so that it was outdated and subject to replacement.

In the process of technical upgrading, more than 500 metres of overhead cable trays were built, 70 km of automation cable products and 59 km of power supply systems were laid. A new ISG building was built, including a complex of technical and amenity premises.

In addition, the team of Nefteyugansk OTPD carried out technical upgrading of the Salym-2 PS firefighting station, within which a new pumping station building was constructed, and pumps with electric drives, foaming agent storage tanks and fire-extinguishing pipelines made of steel pipe with an internal silicate enamel surface were installed. The work carried out will improve the reliability of the fire-extinguishing system.

A pipeline surge relief system’s building was overhauled, the system’s valves’ cabling itself was completely replaced. A new pit for oil system installation was mounted in mainline pump house. The oil system equipment (pumps, oil tanks, filters, oil coolers), produced by Tyumen Machinery and Repair Plant of Transneft Siberia, was installed and put into operation.

As part of implementation of the energy efficiency activities on the territory of Salym-2 PS, cost-effective LED searchlights were installed, regulatory ventilation of all the rooms and maintenance of the set temperature was provided.

The integrated approach to the revamping and technical upgrading of the Salym-2 PS facilities makes it possible to increase the reliability of oil pumping process via the Ust-Balyk – Kurgan – Ufa – Almetievsk oil trunk pipeline, as well as to ensure safe working conditions for personnel.
