General information

On the website of OJSC «Gomeltransneft Druzhba» we hope to give a general outline of our enterprise as a grand technical system of the oil trunk pipeline. The company’s objectives are pumping of the crude oil supplied from the Russian part of the «Druzhba» pipeline in the direction of Eastern Europe and Balkan States, provision of hydrocarbons for Belarusian petrochemical industry. In the year of 2017 more than 61 millions tons of crude oil were pumped over by the enterprise, which made a third part of the total oil export of the Russian Federation. Throughout the history of the enterprise more than three billion tons of oil have passed through the pipelines of OJSC «Gomeltransneft Druzhba».
To attain such ambitious goals, technological complex facilities are in operation and are constantly cardinally renovated. They are fitted with a wide range of the latest equipment for pipeline transport enterprises starting from the basic one to the company’s own fiber-optic communication link, multi-replicated oil pumping process control systems, other special equipment.
Being a part of the transnational oil transporting system, OJSC «Gomeltransneft Druzhba» applies world technologies, which requires highly qualified staff with a high level of intellectual capacity. Those who work directly on the pipeline, employ modern machines and mechanisms, which allows to minimize the share of low-tech labor at repair and maintenance works. Constant necessity of knowledge level development to work with more and more «smart» machines makes  man different. Thus, production standards, interesting leisure activities as well as healthy lifestyle become available for a broad-minded man.  
Following the development trends of the world market of crude oil and petroleum products, OJSC «Gomeltransneft Druzhba» sets the objectives for its collective body to be competitive in oil deliveries and focuses on technological and economic attractiveness of its services. In other words: the process of oil transportation through the oil pipeline system of OJSC «Gomeltransneft Druzhba» should be secure, accident-free, environmentally safe and have a lower price aspect as compared with alternative transit directions.
 Besides providing continuous technological process of oil transportation as part of fulfillment of the obligations towards service consumers, state, society, the staff of OJSC «Gomeltransneft Druzhba» is carrying out a program of technological re-equipment of the enterprise that is also fully financed by it, thus improving the technological processes and determining major strategic issues of its business development:
 1. promotion of reliability, environmentally safe operation of the oil trunk pipeline facilities;
 2. completion of modernization of the basic technological equipment;
 3. reconstruction of the trunk line submerged crossings;
 4. oil tank battery modernization;
 5. adoption of environmentally efficient and energy-saving technologies and equipment, rational use of material, human and financial resources;
 6. professional training development.
Thus, strictly observing business conditions, the Belarusian partner of the most important industry sector in the Russian Federation modernizes the enterprise, providing technological perspective of export of hydrocarbons.
Special attention is paid to reconstruction of the trunk pipeline submerged crossings, high pressure pipeline sections, as well as to the pipeline running through the territory of Pripyat National Park. Major works on replacement of the main and backup pipeline branches have already been finished on the most part of submerged crossings. The works on pipe replacement are fulfilled by HDD method.
 Since the year of 1995 OJSC «Gomeltransneft Druzhba» has been undergoing a continuous cycle of diagnostic study of the condition of the linear pipeline portion. Under the complex approach to general maintenance of the linear pipeline portion with coating replacement, a full range of  repair works is carried out annually.
The operation program of oil tank battery modernization at LODS «Mozyr» have been realized in several stages. The construction of two oil storage tanks (№ 26, 28) with the capacity of 50 000м³ each was finished in August of 2012. They have the form of vertical double-skin steel constructions with floating roof, double bottom and bottom failure detection system. Such a construction allows to provide high environmental safety. Also in 2012 the existing oil storage tanks with a capacity of 10 000 m³ (№ 11, 12, 15, 16) were disassembled. Since the year of 2013 the construction of two new oil storage tanks with a capacity of 50000м³ has been carried out on their place. Realization of the project above will lead to a considerable capacity increase of the oil tank battery at LODS «Mozyr» and consequently to a more reliable and flexible operation of the oil pipeline complex. From the year of 2007 onwards the employees of OJSC «Gomeltransneft Druzhba» have been taking part in the international competition «Best in the occupation», that during its whole lifetime has been promoting business and informal relations between the oil pipeliners.  
 In its anniversary year of 2014 a regular international professional skill competition of oil pipeliners was held at the premises of OJSC «Gomeltransneft Druzhba» with participation of the employees of OJSC «Transneft» (Russia), JSC «KazTransOil» (Kazakhstan), OJSC «Ukrtransnafta» (Ukraine),  «The Caspian Pipeline Consortium».  Such a meaningful business event can be considered as the recognized contribution of the Belarusian enterprise to the joint development of the oil pipeline system, major in its total length and transportation volumes. In the competition with the strongest professionals from the largest national oil pipeline companies, the employees of OJSC «Gomeltransneft Druzhba» took the first four places and became leaders in half competition nominations. Considering the professional level of the competitors and their experience in such competitions, the results of the «Druzhba» employees evidently prove the efficiency of technical training and professional skill development activities in OJSC «Gomeltransneft Druzhba».
 In view of the authority and significancy of the Belarusian partner, OJSC «Gomeltransneft Druzhba» was admitted as a member of the newly created Association of European oil transport companies on December 11, 2014. The members of the Association are major oil pipeline operators: OJSC «Transneft» (Russia), «Transpetrol» (Slovakia), OJSC «Gomeltransneft Druzhba» (Belarus), MOL (Hungary), and MERO ČR (the Czech Republic). The main purpose of the association is the exchange of update information on a wide range of oil transport issues: from technical to financial and legal ones.
 If summarised, the basic work principles of the company’s collective body are reliability, safety and ecological cleanness of all trunk pipeline facilities.
