Automated petroleum product accounting system
According to Article 230 of the Tax Code of Ukraine, from 2017 it is mandatory to introduce automated systems for the commercial accounting of oil products for excise warehouses, which include enterprises such as oil depots. The system of automated accounting of petroleum products that we offer allows us not only to fulfill the above requirements of the tax code, but also significantly increases the level of accounting automation and control over the movement of petroleum products, minimizes the human factor, and allows us to implement multi-stage control, operational access and emergency situations response. An important factor is the security of the system (data transmission on protected protocols), as well as the impossibility of unauthorized access to the system – and as a result – preventing leakage of information about the movement of petroleum products to competitors.
The system is functionally divided into two hardware and software parts – traffic control and commercial accounting of oil products in tanks and automated control of oil products loading to consumers. Both parts can work irrespective from each other, in the case of integration – the client receives additional benefits because he can control the movement of petroleum products in tanks, but also significantly automate the process of dispensing petroleum products through self-loading risers.
Advantages of the system:
Average and current indicators are available to users for viewing via the Internet at any time of the day.
- Instant alert: the server acts as an alert when an emergency occurs
- Low cost of maintenance: during normal operation, maintenance personnel manual actions are not required.
- Flexible configuration and expansion: it is possible to add additional data collection devices that work with various parameters.
- Data archive: access to the resource costs data archive of the enterprise with any detail level in a matter of seconds.
- Reporting: generation of reports matching certain given criteria and the ability to send it automatically to responsible persons.
- Geoinformation binding: the enterprise plan view with equipment and meters applied at installation sites
- Operational accounting and commercial accounting: significant automation of petroleum products movement and vacation monitoring process, the ability to integrate with the enterprise management system and accounting programs.
OIL PRODUCT MONITORING IN TANKS.
This part of the system consists of a hardware-software complex consisting of the following set of equipment entered in the state register of measuring equipment of Ukraine and suitable for commercial accounting. Using the equipment of leading companies allows you to achieve high accuracy measurements:
These measuring devices are connected via the ProfiBus bus to a controller (in the control cabinet), which transmits data фищге the level, pressure, temperature and produced water to a server that stores data and provides real-time access to users through specially developed data software:
- level of oil products in tanks
- oil product density
- oil product temperature.
Access to data is carried out both through local workstations and through the Internet (in remote access mode) – through a browser or mobile application.
The system has the ability to integrate with the analytic system of 1C enterprise, generates the necessary report on the movement of petroleum products (from and to the tank farm), and allows you to create a TTN (on request).
FUNCTIONAL SCHEME OF ACCOUNTING OIL PRODUCTS IN TANKS
Also in the online mode, you can monitor the process of petroleum products shipment. Based on the information collected from the sensors, various statistical reports can be generated:
- stock status report
- report on the number of received or shipped petroleum products by type
- (diesel fuel, A95, A92)
- tank level graphs
- density graph
- temperature graph
AUTOMATION OF BOTTLE MANAGEMENT AND ACCOUNTING OF OIL PRODUCTS SALES
This part of the system consists of a hardware-software complex consisting of the following
a set of equipment entered in the state register of measuring equipment Ukraine and suitable for commercial accounting. Using equipment of leading companies allows to achieve high measurement accuracy and of bulk management accuracy:
Pulse flow meters can be connected to existing (or new) auto-loading risers that control the bottling of petroleum products to consumers. Also, this part of the system involves the installation of an automatic control system for filling routes (a particular type of oil from a particular tank is fed to the designated riser) by introducing shut-off valves with electric actuators, so that the filling process becomes fully automatic. The loading operator can select the desired tank (with the necessary fuel) or several tanks, the necessary self-loading riser, which is designed to be loaded into a fuel truck and by automatically opening the necessary valves, the oil product will be pumped to the riser for further filling. The pulse meter will actually record that fuel that arrives to the consumer – and inform the system about it. When the fuel is shipped, the details of the invoice for which the shipment is made are fixed. but take into account the actual volume of oil products shipped according to meter readings.
The software will allow you to receive operational messages about emergency situations:
- excess of permissible temperature limits
- excess of the permissible oil products level in tanks
- shipment of petroleum products without invoice, etc.

INTEGRATED SYSTEM OF MONITORING THE OIL PRODUCTS MOVEMENT IN RESERVOIRS
AUTOMATION OF THE PETROLEUM MANAGEMENT AND ACCOUNTING OF OIL PRODUCTS FILLING
The client will get the greatest advantage if both parts of the system are used together – in this case we can talk about an almost 100% level of automation of both control of the movement of oil products in tanks and automatic dispensing and its control and accounting. It will ensure the maximum degree of integration with systems management of the enterprise and accounting systems. Also it will make possible to control and compare the parameters of the flow/arrival of petroleum products both according to the data from the tanks and according to the automatic loading of the counters on the risers.
