Gazprom Net has developed a new solution, the Infrastructure Monitoring Centre (IMC), to carry out automatic monitoring and predictive analytics capacities at its filling stations network. With the IMC, fuel-quality and safety operational processes could be monitored online.

Information on oil-product stocks will be received continuously from the Gazprom Neft filling station network connected to the IMC, with this data transferred to the Gazprom Neft “Neftekontrol” system online.

The IMC’s machine learning and predictive analytics modules will pick up signals from connected devices at filling stations, and issue alerts in advance of any equipment in need of servicing to ensure the uninterrupted operation of automatic filling stations.

“The Infrastructure Monitoring Centre is one of the key projects in the company’s digital strategy, directed at introducing ‘Internet of Things (IoT)’ technologies in managing and monitoring equipment throughout the Gazprom Neft filling station network. We are cutting equipment maintenance costs several times over, while maintaining a high degree of control over the quality and safety of petroleum products, removing potential for human error in that process. We plan to have all equipment at service and automatic filling stations — from coffee machines to fuel tanks — connected to the Infrastructure Monitoring Centre by 2021,” commented Head of Gazprom Neft’s Regional Sales Directorate, Alexander Krylov.
