AT-5 Maintenance

KNGK-INPZ carried out regular maintenance of its youngest processing unit. Launched in 2013, AT-5 is designed to process both sweet crude as well as its mixture with sour oil of Urals.

Regular maintenance of the AT-5 aims to improve its performance reliability and includes inspection of the equipment and pipelines, cleaning off mechanical impurities and sediment, and application of anti-corrosion protective coating to extend the service life. Regular inspections of instrumentation and automated control systems, which are also part of the maintenance procedures, ensure not only economic results, but also production safety.

Maintenance works were completed on February 15. Now AT-5 operates at full capacity.
