Hydrocarbon Engineering asked Kristina Sabirova, managing partner of BGS Group and project director of PRC Russia & CIS Congress, to tell about the most outstanding examples of digitalisation at Russian refineries.

Digitalisation at TANECO refinery

Technologies such as Internet of Things (IoT), cognitive computing, remote sensing, data combination, etc are developing in global upstream, midstream, and downstream segments. In 2017, automation and digitalisation have seen a great boost in investments by industry leaders such as Statoil, BP, GE Lukoil, Gazprom Neft, etc. These innovations have many applications in the downstream sector. For example, in the refining process itself, smart plant and digital twin technologies can be applied, or end-user services for B2B and B2C markets, such as Shell’s catalogue virtual assistant based on artificial intelligence (AI).

This article, published in three parts, will observe the latest experiences of three Russian oil and gas giants in implementation and support of Industry 4.0 innovations.
The first company under the spotlight is Tatneft.

Tatneft

Most of the latest innovations at Tatneft’s TANECO refinery were implemented in the frames of a long-term partnership with Kaspersky Lab. They are aimed to improve security systems and to boost the operational efficiency of the plant. One of the crucial TANECO projects is digitalisation of a crude distillation unit ELOU-AVT-7. The unit is sensitive to oil quality, cooling system disruptions, internal temperature, and other factors. Its functioning has an impact on the quality and effectiveness of further refining, and the company invests a lot in the security and continuity of the technical process. The technologies allow them to retrieve information on all abnormalities, prevent emergencies, and therefore cut costs on the recovery.
