Transneft and Sonatrach intend to cooperate in such fields as non-destructive screening and improvement of safety of the pipeline infrastructure operation.
Transneft showed mock-ups of in-line diagnostic devices of own manufacture – combined magnetic (MFL+TFI) and magnetic ultra-sound (MFL+WM+CD) defectoscopes at the company’s booth.
The devices are the unique project of Transneft Diascan which is among the world`s first enterprises implemented the technology combining different diagnostic methods.
The scheduled 0.5% reduction in fuel and energy resources (FER) consumption indicators over 2016 was achieved in the three quarters of the current year.
The event was held on September 25 - 28 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The technical solutions protected by these patents have found use in the field of in-line inspection and interpretation of diagnostics data, they increase efficiency and quality of the work.
As part of the exhibition stand Transneft Diascan showed modern high-technology diagnostic equipment - models of ultrasonic (WM) and combined magnetic ultrasonic (MFL + WM + CD) defectoscopes.
The employees of Transneft Diascan together with the representatives of other city organizations planted more than 70 thousand pine seedlings.
The meeting attendees discussed the issues related to operation of trunk oil and petroleum product pipelines (OTP and PPTP) in 2017, diagnostics results relevant to process pipelines, oil pump stations (PS) and initiation of their replacement programme.
Transneft Diascan uses primarily domestic components to fabricate their diagnostic tools. For example, their percentage is 78% in a combined magnetic and ultrasonic flaw detector fabricated; by 2020, the percentage will increase to 85%.
