Gazprom Neft’s APCS will be the largest of more than 80 control systems currently in operation at the Omsk Refinery. The future facility is capable of processing information from 18,700 sensors concurrently — twice the industry average. 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.“Our company is creating a single and cohesive control environment through which to manage our oil-refining assets. Nobody, anywhere in the world can, at the moment, offer us ready-made solutions in line with the full range of technological features and objectives involved in production. For that reason, Gazprom Neft is managing engineering here itself, and implementing solutions to increase the efficiency and reliability of the entire vertical production chain — from the simplest technological processes to production groups and entire plants,” said Mikhail Antonov, head of Gazprom Neft’s Oil and Gas Refining Directorate.
