Invensys supports new Russian refinery
27 February 2013
The new Yaysky oil refinery in Russia is designed to process three million tons of crude oil per year
Invensys Operations Management has completed the first phase of a main automation contractor project at the new Yaysky oil refinery in Kemerovo, a city in Russia’s Kuzpass region.
Invensys has supplied complete control and safety solutions, including field instrumentation, process analytics and valves.
Included in the project are the company’s Foxboro distributed control system, Triconex emergency shutdown systems and Foxboro measurement and instrumentation solutions, as well as new Foxboro visualisation and configuration tools.
The company will also provide comprehensive installation, engineering, development, support and on-site training services.
During the execution of the project Invensys played a key role in the selection of suppliers and contractors, managing the supply chain and improving the efficiency and transparency of pricing to optimise the total cost of ownership of the project.
NefteKhimService JSC, a Russian company and investor in the Yaysky project, selected Invensys as the MAC after an open-vendor bid in 2009.
Invensys will help us meet the strong, growing demand for gasoline and diesel fuel in the Kuzpass region without compromising our commitment to safety, quality and sustainability
NefteKhimService JSC “Invensys’ real-time control, safety and instrumentation solutions will help us meet the strong, growing demand for gasoline and diesel fuel in the Kuzpass region without compromising our commitment to safety, quality and sustainability,” said Alexey Medvedev, IT director of NefteKhimService JSC.
The Yaysky facility is designed to process three million tons of crude oil per year.
After start up, it will annually produce more than 400,000 tons of gasoline and 1.5 million tons of diesel fuel, satisfying more than 60 per cent of the fuel consumption needs of Russia’s Kuzpass region, located in southwestern Siberia.
The successful first phase sets up the refinery for the next two phases of implementation, which will expand production to 6 million tons of crude oil per year and increase oil conversion to 93 per cent.
