An unmanned aerial car (UAV or drone) designed to ship heavy and outsized cargo below Arctic situations has, for the primary time in Russia, been examined on the Vostochno-Messoyakhskoye oil and gasoline condensate discipline (Gydan Peninsula, Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug), with an unmanned Tiber KAGU-150 efficiently finishing a number of flights and delivering supplies and gear to the sector. The goal of this take a look at was to verify the potential for unmanned applied sciences to ship important requirements to standalone northern fields. The mission was undertaken by specialists from Gazpromneft-Snabzheniye, representatives from Russian drone and unmanned-systems producer Tiber LLC, and staff at Messoyakhaneftegaz.
The UAV, managed from the corporate’s logistics base within the Tazovsky settlement, efficiently accomplished a 130-kilometre route, delivering 150-kilogramme load to the sector. The drone has demonstrated excessive technical capabilities below Arctic situations. A second spherical of testing is deliberate on the Vostochno-Messoyakhskoye discipline in December 2020, with drone builders and oil-industry specialists all eager to check it below Arctic winter situations.
Deploying unmanned applied sciences as a part of its logistics processes at northern fields is a key goal for Gazprom Neft, with the corporate delivering a whole bunch of 1000’s of tonnes of engineering and drilling gear, development supplies, and the necessities important to sustaining oil manufacturing centres, to standalone oilfields by street and air yearly. Using UAVs opens up main alternatives for oil staff in delivering important assets to fields safely, and quick.
The testing of the Tiber helicopter represents the third sequence of such checks on unmanned logistics applied sciences carried out at Gazprom Neft manufacturing belongings in 2020 — the corporate having beforehand examined automated land freight transport in Yamal and Yugra. Based on the outcomes of checks undertaken, Gazprom Neft plans to speed up the method of deploying unmanned options all through its logistics processes, and can proceed to take an energetic position in creating regulation governing the usage of unmanned transport at Russian oilfields.
