Date of publication: 03 March 2020

Transneft Druzhba has completed the technical upgrading of the oil lease automatic custody transfer unit (LACT) of the Penza Regional Directorate`s Klin line operation dispatcher station.

Specialists replaced the mechanical displacement prover (MDP) of the LACT. It is intended for adjusting and verifying the equipment for measuring the volume and mass directly at the operation site without disrupting the accounting process.

A foundation has been prepared for the MDP and its waterproofing has been carried out. Specialists connected the installation to existing technological and drainage pipelines, performed electrical installation works.  

The building where the MDP is located has been renovated: new windows and doors were installed, exterior finishing was arranged, and the lighting system was replaced.

All the works were launched in March 2019 as part of Transneft Druzhba’s technical upgrading, revamping and overhaul programme. The goal is to increase the reliability and technological accuracy of the equipment operated by the company.
