Coordination of booster pump stations operating modes

Authors: S.A. Sobolev, R.B. Fattakhov (TatNIPIneft, RF, Almetyevsk)
Key words: booster pump station, coordination of pumping units operations, computer-aided simulation.
The article discusses a method used to coordinated operations of several booster pump stations delivering oil to a single common pipeline. The method ensures a series operation of booster pump stations in the course of time, prevents simultaneous operation of several pumping units in order to reduce pipeline internal pressure and power consumption.
