Anzhero-Sudzhenskaya line operation dispatcher station (LODS) of Novosibirsk Regional Oil Pipeline Directorate (ROPD) (branch of Transneft Western Siberia) celebrates its anniversary. Fifty years ago - in 1968 - the acceptance certificate of Anzherskaya oil pump station was signed.
Commissioning of a new industrial facility - Anzherskaya station in Kemerovo Region - was related to the project of the first phase of extension of Omsk - Irkutsk oil trunk pipeline (OTP). During the first phase the station transported benzine; after construction of the new Aleksandrovskoe - Anzhero-Sudzhensk OTP and its further connection to Omsk - Irkutsk OTP it started transporting oil to the east of Russia. In 1974 construction of a tank farm started at the station. In 1978 the industrial facility was given the status of a line operation dispatcher station.
Today the history of successful development of Anzhero-Sudzhenskaya LODS is continued. Now the station performs all the set tasks regarding securing uninterrupted oil transportation to the east, supplies crude materials to the refineries of Siberia and Far East. Annually the station pumps about 50 million tons of oil, delivers and receives crude materials from refineries located nearby - Yaisky Refinery, Anzherskaya oil and gas company, North Kuzbass Refinery.
The station’s industrial facilities are permanently modernized for the purpose of uninterrupted performance of the industrial tasks. Works at the linear portion and the station’s tank farm are conducted as part of the Technical Upgrading, Overhaul and Revamping Programme. According to Sergei Glushkov, head of Anzhero-Sudzhenskaya LODS, the industrial facility functions 24 hours a day, two pump houses are provided for oil transportation, one of them transports crude materials, the other is on standby. Priority attention is paid to automation of industrial processes of receiving and delivery of oil, the tank farm’s operation, securing industrial and fire safety of the facility. Joint drills with the territorial subdivision of the EMERCOM (Ministry for Civil Defence, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters) for Kemerovo Region are conducted annually for training of practical skills and assessment of the personnel’s readiness to localization and elimination of emergencies.
