The Gazprom Management Committee approved the Comprehensive Targeted Programe for the retrofitting, reconstruction and development of automated process control systems at the Company's facilities between 2017 and 2021.
The programme is aimed at further improving the Company's core operations through higher levels of process automation, broader functional capabilities of automated control systems and fewer operating costs. The programme will help Gazprom ensure enhanced reliability and safety of Russia's Unified Gas Supply System.
Among other things, the programme stipulates further actions for equipping gas trunklines, gas laterals, gas distribution stations and gas well clusters with up to date telemechanic systems. It is also planned to upgrade or replace outdated automation equipment of comprehensive gas treatment units, compressor stations and gas processing plants.
Gazprom's specialised structural units were instructed to use the programme as a basis for the preparation of proposals for the company's annual and medium term investment programes related to the retrofitting, reconstruction and development of automated process control systems.
