Transneft Volga Region has summed up the results of implementing its Energy Saving and Efficiency Enhancement Programme in 1H 2020.
During this period, the economic effect from implementation of energy saving activities amounted to more than RUB 1.2 million. The company saved 207,000 kWh of electricity and 43 tonnes of oil equivalent (TOE).
A significant economic effect was obtained as a result of the programme to increase the efficiency of process sections and mainline pumps. In order to optimise pumping modes and ensure energy efficient operation of equipment, mainline pumps were replaced at the Buguruslan and Yerzovka modular group pumping stations. According to the results of the new equipment operation, electrical energy savings amounted to 135,000 kWh.
The oil transportation modes optimisation, as well as cleaning of pipeline inner surfaces and mud trap filters, allowed saving 72,000 kWh.
The consumption of motor fuel was reduced by 18 TOE due to the optimisation of routes for motor transport equipped with the GLONASS/GPS system.
