Transneft North Organises Tour for Ukhta Schoolchildren to Company’s Museum Exhibition

Date of publication: 13 February 2020

Students of Ukhta’s secondary school No. 20 with advanced studies of certain subjects have had a guided tour around the museum exhibition of Transneft North.

Children learned the history of the oil field development in the Komi Republic, as well as about the activities of Transneft North. During the visit to the interactive exhibition, the Company's specialists told schoolchildren about oil trunk transportation, how oil travels from the well to the consumer.

The students were able to see one of the first oil distillation cubes, which was used by Russian petroleum producer Fyodor Pryadunov, learned about the origin of oil transportation and animal-driven transport. Modern multimedia solutions explained the functioning principles of oil pipelines, oil pumping stations and other operating facilities to young visitors in a very accessible way.

After the museum visit, the children examined the supervisory control and data acquisition system of Transneft North, where the dispatcher remotely manages each facility of the oil trunk pipeline from Usinsk to Yaroslavl.

The students examined an individual simulator, which allows the dispatcher to improve their skills in managing the oil pipeline, and the Gidrouklon automatic monitoring system on the modernised dispatcher’s premises. In addition, the children had the opportunity to "regulate the operation of the oil trunk pipeline" on a dispatch simulator in real time on their own.

For reference: The museum’s interactive exhibition is located in the central office of Transneft North, Ukhta, and was opened in September 2018 to celebrate Transneft‘s 25th anniversary. The collection of exhibits boasts unique photographs, audio and video materials and tools of various age. The museum is distinguished by its interactivity: a great deal of information is presented on screens.
