First-ever “Oil Terminal” onsite visit to PTK-Terminal, 22 November 2017
Ruchi tank farm (PTK-Terminal) is designed for light petroleum acceptance, storage and distribution (motor gasoline and diesel fuel). Petroleum is shipped to the tank farm by the railway and further distributed to motor and railway tankers.
The tank farm stores К5 eco-friendly motor gasolines, such as RON-92-К5 (Regular-92), RON-95-К5 (Premium Euro-95), RON-98-К5 (Super Euro-98), and К5 eco diesel fuel (DF-L-К5, DF-Е–К5, DF-Z-К5).
The retrofit activities of tank farm’s process sections complying with modern requirements of industrial, environmental and fire safety applicable to HIF, were accomplished in 2016. It included the construction of four reservoirs with overall capacity as of 19.6 k cbm, as well as the adoption of CAM and petroleum commercial accounting system; the reconstruction of loading rail rack and electric lighting system; the installation of automatic fire-fighting and fire water supply systems. Sewage treatment and water disposal, along with infrastructure and road building activities are underway.
The programme for PTK-Terminal infrastructure development stipulates for the replacement of 5 tank groups, 4 reservoir each, with total capacity as of 100 k cbm of RON-92 and RON-95 before 2020.
Overall tank farm storage capacity is 63 800 cbm, including:
– diesel capacities — 29 400 cbm;
– gasoline capacities — 34 400 cbm.
The infrastructure of the rail rack allows simultaneous acceptance (or loading) of 28 railcars (14 gasoline railcars and 14 diesel railcars), which accounts for 4.6 k tpd (2.2 k tpd of gasoline and 2.4 k tpd of diesel) or 1.6 mtpa.
The petroleum distribution to road tankers is carried out by means of automated loading station (ALS). ALS is designed for simultaneous loading of 8 road tankers with various fuel types. The average loading capacity amounts to 4 k tpd, or 1.4 mtpa.
Thus, tank farm capacities are able to ensure the annual cargo turnover at 3 mtpa.
During the visit, the delegates will examine the new pump station, metering unit, rail rack and other facilities.
Petroleum quality control is carried out by the Fuel Test Laboratory of PTK-Terminal (lab visit) certified by the Federal Accreditation Service. The delegates will also have the opportunity to visit one PTK filling station.
Join the decision-makers of oil and gas companies during the onsite visits to terminals, to be held within the framework of the 12th annual event “Oil terminal 2017”.
The programme 2017 includes the visits to 2 terminals in the Northwest region.
