Increase of the operational efficiency

An increase in the efficiency of technological processes at the active processing plants is one of the priorities in the oil and gas and chemical industries. It becomes a crucial task, especially during the economic

decline when the capital- intensive methods for increasing the production capacities are limited. One of the most successful and cost-effective methods for improving the efficiency of continuous technological processes is implementing the Advanced Process Control Systems (APCS). The APCS is a hardware and software system that is essentially an add-on to the basic Automated Technological Process Control System (ATPCS). It is designed to increase the efficiency of the technological process by improving the control performance and performing continuous optimization of the technological process based on the set economic criteria.

 

The APCS is designed for

  • the automatic optimal control of a technological process according to the planned objectives for the quality and quantity of the output product;
  • timely automatic recording of external disturbances, intercorrelation of the technological parameters, forecast behavior of the technological process during the control process;
  • automatic real-time calculation of the output product quality indicators based on the current parameters of the technological process.

 

Using the APCS allows to

  • enhance the economic efficiency of the technological process by automatic selection of the optimal operating points and maintaining the best operating conditions; 
  • narrow the range of values for the critical quality indicators of the output product;
  • reduce the transition process time and loss in quality of products when the production targets are changed;
  • decrease the workload of the operational staff of the technological process by lowering a number of control circuits and through the automatic adjustment of the technological process to the optimal operating conditions;
  • directly control the technological process based on the quality indicators of the product.

 

The benefits of implementing the APCS:

  • improvement of the operational safety when using the processing units and equipment;
  • increase in productivity by 1-5%;
  • reduction of the energy consumption by 3-10%;
  • reduction of the loss of high-value product by 1-5%;
  • reduction of the time for reaching the operating conditions by at least 10%;
  • reduction of the product quality variability;
  • increase of the product quality.

 

Integrated solution for information security of the critical information infrastructures

Protected objects in the ACS of the technological process are:

  • img2

    information (data) about the parameters (conditions) of a managed (controlled) object or a process (input / output information), control (command) information, monitoring and measuring information, other critical (technological) information

  • software and hardware system, including the hardware components (automated workplaces, industrial servers, telecommunication equipment), software, and information security tools.

 

Information security in the automated control system is ensured by a number of organizational and technical measures for information protection. It is aimed at blocking (neutralizing) information security threats that can cause the operating breakdowns of the automated control system and managed (controlled) object and (or) process, as well as at the localization and minimization of the consequences of possible activation of the information security threats, and the recovery of the normal functioning of the automatic control system in case of the information security threats activation.

 

Organizational and technical measures for the information protection

  • Should ensure accessibility of the information processed by the automated control system (eliminating unauthorized information blocking), its integrity (eliminating unauthorized destruction and modification of information), and, if needed, confidentiality (elimination of unauthorized access, copying, providing, and distributing information);
  • The security measures have to correlate with the measures of industrial, physical, fire, environmental, radiation safety and other safety measures for the automated control system and managed (controlled) objects and(or) process;
  • Should not have a negative impact on the normal functioning of the automated control system.

Information Security System (ISS) should have the possibility of using sub-systems. Information security measures in the automated control system of the technological process and relevant requirements for the ISS sub-systems are specified below. A set of ISS sub-systems ensures the fulfillment of the specified requirements for the ISS sub-systems:

  • Identification and authentication of the access subjects and objects
  • Managing access of the subjects to the objects
  • Restriction of the software environment
  • Protection of the machine-readable devices
  • Recording of the security events
  • Antivirus protection
  • Intrusion detection
  • Control (analysis) of the information security
  • Ensuring integrity
  • Ensuring availability
  • Protection of the virtualization environment
  • Protection of the hardware components
  • Protection of the automated system and its components
  • Ensuring safe software development
  • Managing software updates
  • Planning the information security measures
  • Ensuring the emergency response (in unforeseen situations)
  • Informing and training personnel
  • Analysis of the information security threats and the risks of the threats activation
  • Identifying the incidents and the response to such incidents
  • Managing the automated control system configuration and its security system

 

Oil and gas fiscal and operational metering systems (Crude quality control system (CQCS), Oil custody metering system (OCMS))

The CQCS is designed for automatic oil measurement in units of weight and volume, for manual and automatic crude oil sampling, for automatic measurement of oil density, viscosity, water content, sulfur content (if necessary), pressure, and temperature; and for checking flow transducers using calibration setup or reference flowmeter. The CQCS is designed using volumetric or mass flow transducers.

 

 

Automation and fiscal metering in tank storage facilities. Fire alarm system

Our company offers a fiscal metering system for the tank storage facilities for oil products.

The system includes a wide range of components for the fiscal metering and management of the tank storage facilities, it allows the centralization and improvement of the management and control of technological processes in tank storage facilities, and keeps the staff informed in routine and emergency situations. The foundation for the automated fire protection systems of the facilities is the system that collects and processes information regarding the conditions of the facility – the automatic fire alarm system. The system's main objective is early fire detection at the point when it's possible to evacuate people urgently and bring the fire under control without severe economic and environmental consequences.

 

Gas detection system development

The most common method for detecting dangerous gas leaks is installing special sensors in areas

Implementation of the system for pipeline monitoring and leak detection

A pipeline is a convenient and reliable method of transporting different liquids and substances, especially such high-value products as oil and gas. To reduce losses during transportation and to enhance safety during pipeline operation, leak detection systems (LDS) are used.

The purpose of the leak detection system:         

Early detection of leaks or defects;

Warning an operator about the problem;

Generating and providing data about the     

coordinates and other parameters

 of the defect.

 

Advantages:

  • Real-time leak detection (in one minute) and prompt notification;
  • Possibility to use several diagnostics methods at once to obtain a more precise and clear understanding of the problem;
  • Customization and flexible adjustment of the system according to the specific features of the facility;
  • Possibility to integrate new study methods in addition to the existing ones;
