“At the Gazpromneft-Khantos we were familiarised with the IT-products created and used at the enterprise. We were especially impressed by the digital twin of the field. What we saw confirms high qualification of the company’s staff,” explained William Byun, member of the International Committee of the Global Energy Prize.
The guests also visited the intellectual logistics space Terminal where they were demonstrated digital solutions used in the warehouse logistics management, including an automated storage elevator system, a pallet handling robot and an AR headset for taking inventory. The technologies implemented at the Terminal help optimise warehouse space, speed up access to goods and significantly reduce operating costs. The cargo stored at the terminal is delivered to the field not only by conventional transport, but also by unmanned electric car GAZelle NEXT. At the same time, the Experience Centre was created on the basis of the terminal where the employees are trained for work with innovations.
“Due to new technologies, equipment and systems, the enterprise has already moved to a qualitatively new level of production management. Systematical expansion of the range of the applied IT-tools and improvement of organisational approaches provides us with further growth of operational efficiency,” said Sergei Fedorov, Gazpromneft-Khantos Director General. “At first glance, oil seems to be a specific product, and as for digital technologies, they look like something abstract. In fact, there is an amazing symbiosis going on here. Digital technologies make work performance more rational,” said Sergey Brilev, the President of the Global Energy Association
