Gazprom Neft installs APCS at Omsk Refinery
26 March 2020
Gazprom Neft is continuing its installation of an integrated automated process control system (APCS) at its Omsk Refinery. The new APCS has been designed for the company’s future advanced oil refining complex (AORC), construction of which is expected to be complete by 2021. The APCS, which integrates three distinct technological processes in the future facility into a single cohesive system, will be the only one of its kind in Russia. The project has been developed by Gazprom Neft’s industrial automation subsidiary, Avtomatika-Servis, together with partners from South Korea and Japan. The system’s compliance with industrial safety standards has been inspected by Rostekhnadzor (the Federal Service for Ecological, Technological and Nuclear Oversight).
Thanks to modern design solutions, the APCS will be able to manage technologically diverse, but interconnected, processes in a single flow process, guaranteeing the AORC’s high efficiency and reliability. The system is built around a flexible architecture, and can be integrated into Gazprom Neft’s future Production Control Centre (PCC). Specialists continue to work on pre-commissioning activities, prior to the system going into full commercial operation.
