Digitalisation at SIBUR Holding's refineries

Technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), cognitive computing, remote sensing, data combination, etc are developing in global upstream, midstream, and downstream segments.

In the final part of this three part article that has observed how Russian oil and gas giants have implemented Industry 4.0 innovations, the focus has turned to SIBUR Holding.

SIBUR Holding

SIBUR Holding took up automation and digitalisation several years ago. In 2012 it introduced the manufacturing execution system (MES) at its production units. This system automates production collecting of data for analysis and allows it to see and control the process in real-time. It requires a primary level of automation and presence of an automated process control system (APCS) in order to take this data into the MES. APCS uses thousands of sensors around the plant to collect data on temperatures, pressure, flows, etc. This information is stored and analysed so that the MES can develop the most efficient and cost-saving production strategy and ensure the high quality of the product.
