Transneft Druzhba starts evaporation ponds overhaul

Date of publication: 31 May 2018 Print

Transneft Druzhba has launched a major overhaul of evaporation ponds at Unecha line operation dispatcher station (LODS) and Verkhovye oil pumping station (PS) of Bryansk Regional Directorate as well as at Klin LODS and Rostovka PS of the Penza branch.

In the course of the repairs the Company’s specialists will lay out the pits’ bases and inner slopes, reinforce the slopes with geocells and install waterproof screens.

Within the overhaul, water intake wells will be installed, pipes will be replaced, sampling grounds and a road with road signs will be set up.

All these activities are part of Transneft Druzhba’s overhaul programme for 2018. The renewal of evaporation ponds will make storage of wastewater more reliable, ruling out its possible discharge to terrain.

Works at all the facilities are planned to be completed by November 2018.
