At ООО Gasprom Dobycha Yamburg, they have invented and implemented a smart system in order to avoid a typical problem for gas recovery companies. In flowlines, the manufacturers need to avoid formation of hydrates — solid compounds of natural gas and water. The hydrates are being accumulated in wellbores, on the walls of main and field pipelines, thus reducing their discharge capacity. In order to reduce these formations, the gaswork engineers use methanol. The problem relates to its discharged volume: the excess expenditure of methyl alcohol increases the load on environment and unreasonable company costs. Saving methanol is not good either, as it may cause an emergency at a pipeline.
To solve the problem, the engineers of ООО Gasprom Dobycha Yamburg have developed an intellectual automated technological processes management system. The system is operated on the basis of special technology, which helped to achieve AI effect.
