Transneft Upper Volga has replaced a booster pump at the Gorky oil pumping station, located in Kstovsky District of Nizhny Novgorod Region.
The pump replacement works started in April 2019. New pumping equipment manufactured by Transneft Oil Pumps and boasting higher efficiency, lower costs and longer overhaul periods, was installed at the station.
After completion of comprehensive testing, the new booster pump at the Gorky PS will be put into operation.
The set of scheduled measures was implemented as part of the development, technical upgrading and revamping programme covering Transneft’s trunk pipeline facilities. The goal is to increase reliability of oil pumping stations’ facilities and ensure uninterrupted oil transportation via the system of trunk pipelines.
