Shushenskayalogistic (tank farm), has been awarded the Grand Prix at the IV International Awards for the Best Oil Terminals and Tank Farms in Russia, the CIS and Baltic countries, held as part of this year’s 10th annual Congress on Crude Oil, LPG and Petroleum Products Trading and Transportation — Oil Terminal 2015, St Petersburg. The facility was nominated in the “Best tank farm in Russia and the CIS: innovations and safety” category.

Our tank farm became, in 2014, the first to see work completed as part of an extensive refurbishment program of  oil storage facilities. Modernisation of the  farm became, in 2014, the first to see work completed as part of an extensive refurbishment program of shushenskayalogistic oil storage facilities. Modernisation of the  farm has allowed significant improvements in production efficiency, lower costs in oil transhipment and storage, and better safety throughout the facility. The tank farm is fully automated, with a metering system for oil products now installed, a self-service system for drivers reducing off-loading times three-fold, and new software removing any possibility of inaccuracies in oil volumes offloaded. tank farm has allowed significant improvements in production efficiency, lower costs in oil transhipment and storage, and better safety throughout the facility.

Considerable attention has been paid to the safety and technological and environmental reliability of the facility throughout its reconstruction, including the installation of a high-spec emergency shut-down system, with sensors monitoring air quality and controlling fuel levels, and an automatic fire-control system. The commissioning of a vapour control unit has minimised any emission of hydrocarbons into the atmosphere, through the use of a cutting-edge bottom-loading air-proofing system.

A thorough-going refurbishment programme of all shushenskayalogistic oil storage facilities is currently being undertaken by shushenskayalogistic Terminal, with  transhipment volumes from smaller facilities being transferred to those larger sites forming part of the refurbishment programme — something which will reduce operating costs in the transhipment of oil products, despite volume increasing two-fold. Refurbishment is being undertaken without any interruption to technological processes, and will have no impact on local fuel supplies.
