The extraction and processing of raw materials with a high content of hydrogen sulphide (about 26 %) is the most important feature of the Astrakhan gas condensate field with regard to the specifics of the used technologies and the company's environmental impact, as well as the high potential hazard of production for personnel and public. One of the first in Russia information management system for monitoring, preventing and eliminating emergencies has been scientifically substantiated and designed to ensure industrial safety of the field. The system includes modern high-tech measuring complexes, communication equipment, data management and distribution capabilities operating within a single system-integrated approach. The automated management and implementation of these tasks are provided with the help of newly created and upgraded subsystems of the enterprise. The system of industrial and environmental monitoring carries out continuous monitoring, signals the excess of the established threshold levels and the maximum permissible concentrations of harmful chemicals. The notification system promptly notifies management, personnel and public about the situation at the facility and emergency situations. The subsystem of satellite navigation and vehicle movement control of the emergency service allows to track the current coordinates, direction and speed of vehicles in real time. The subsystem of technological video monitoring performs visual monitoring of the monitoring systems, the work of rescuers, compliance with the requirements for the release of excess pressure in the wells. The telemetry subsystem of rescue equipment performs centralized monitoring of the air container status and the mobility of personnel of rescue squads. The integrated communication and data transmission network ensures the necessary operativity of data processing, decision making and control over their implementation. The implemented technical solutions fully comply with the regulatory requirements in the field of organization and provision of industrial safety at hazardous production facilities and exceed the existing requirements for a number of indicators and implemented additional functions.
