Nature of the Work
The pipeline, which was constructed to meet TUPRAŞ Kırıkkale Refinery’s demand for crude oil, was commissioned in September 1986. By today, the 448 kilometer long pipeline’s with an annual transmission capacity is almost 5 million tons.
The pipeline structure, which starts at the Ceyhan Marine Jetty Terminal in the Mediterranean Sea port and passes over the Taurus Mountains, has
3 Boosting stations, 1 Pig Station, 17 Pipe Line Valve Control Stations, Cathode Protection Control, and
1 Distribution Terminal.
The most important features of the automation system, which consists of more than 3.800 input/ output process signals, allows different subsystems including a Distributed Control System (DCS), Remote Terminal Units (RTU), High Accuracy Leakage Detection System (LOS), and process working algorithms to operate in a parallel manner.
