Transneft Diascan has brought the Diagnost information system (IS) into operation, which is designed to carry out external diagnostics of Transneft’s oil and petroleum products trunk pipeline transportation facilities and record the results.
The software developed by Transneft Diascan’s specialists allows to perform the following operations:
- forming diagnostics tasks by specialists of Transneft subsidiaries;
- transferring technique and diagnostics’ technical process sheets as well as technical specifications for diagnostics of such facilities as tanks, mechanical process equipment, process pipelines and automated process control systems (PCS) to the contracting organisation;
- automated primary verification of the results of external diagnostics;
- storing the results of external diagnostics, as well as the history of diagnostics of oil and petroleum products trunk pipelines (OTP and PPTP) facilities and oil pumping stations (PS).
The developed information system will allow to maintain a unified database of OTP (PPTP) facilities and PS, providing quick access to the results of previously conducted diagnostics and the possibility to automate the process of agreeing technical specifications for conducting external diagnostics, as well as to exchange information with external contracting entities and to monitor the timing of their diagnostics.
