Invensys controls New Russian Refinery

February 26, 2013 - Invensys Operations Management successfully completed the first phase of a main automation contractor project at the new Yaysky oil refinery in Kemerovo, a city in Russia’s Kuzbass region.

Under the terms of the multimillion dollar agreement, Invensys, as the main automation provider, 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 visualization 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 optimize 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.

“We were looking for an experienced partner, someone who could help us reduce risks, lower costs, accelerate startup and drive profitable performance sooner, and we believe Invensys can deliver,” said Alexey Medvedev, IT director of NefteKhimService JSC. “Invensys were our partner throughout every stage of the project, showing great competence and responsibility as the general contractor for the applied technical solutions, as well as managing all the work within the project. Their real-time control, safety and instrumentation solutions will help us meet the strong, growing demand for gasoline and diesel fuel in the Kuzbass region without compromising our commitment to safety, quality and sustainability.”

“We are extremely pleased to serve NefteKhimService JSC on this important project, and we are totally committed to their success,” said Boris Muratov, general manager, Invensys Operations Management, Russia. “Along with the industry’s broadest portfolio of open technology solutions, Invensys has more than 100 years of global experience completing massive projects for companies large and small. The Yaysky project builds on our abilities to help refineries around the world become safer and more efficient, as well as strengthens our strategic position in Russia’s growing, dynamic downstream market.

“For this project, Invensys went beyond the traditional vendor-supplier scope of work and focused on the priorities and needs of the customer in the broadest sense of the word. This was truly a joint effort that involved teams from across the complex, from studying optimal technical solutions at the development stage to the hard work at the delivery, installation and commissioning stage. We look forward to working with NefteKhimService JSC to help Yaysky become a world-class refinery.”

The Yaysky facility is designed to process 3 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 percent of the fuel consumption needs of Russia’s Kuzbass 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 percent.
