Economic Effect of Implementing Energy-Saving Measures at Transneft Druzhba, JSC Totals RUB99.3 m in 2015

Date of publication: 27 July 2015

    As a result of implementing the 2015 energy saving program, Transneft Druzhba, JSC expects to obtain the operational effect equaling to 30.1 m kWh, 230 tons of fuel equivalent, which will enable to save some RUB99.3 m.

    A number of organizational, technical and innovation arrangements have been in place to achieve that goal in the scope of the energy management system introduced at Transneft Druzhba, JSC in compliance with ISO 50001:2011 international standard.

   Some 45% to 60% of the overall operational effect is achieved at the expense of optimizing the operation modes of oil trunk pipelines. Utilization of up-to-date energy-saving lamps and automatic lighting control systems in amenities and production premises also contributes to the arrangements. Thermovision inspections are regularly held inside the buildings to avoid heat losses during the heating season, while heat-reflective screens are mounted indoors, behind the convectors.

   Reduction of fuel and lubricants costs is a significant component of energy-saving arrangements. A decrease of motor fuel consumption by above 3,000 tons of equivalent fuel within 5 months of 2015 has already enabled Transneft Druzhba, JSC to save some RUB1 m. Such indicators have been achieved due to GLONASS-based satellite road vehicle monitoring system, which helps to control the velocity and travel time of all vehicles, and to optimize their travel routes. As of now, the new on-board equipment has been installed to all road and special-purpose vehicles of the company.
