Control systems provided to Russian refinery
The Antipinsky Refinery in Tyumen, Russia, is receiving control systems from Honeywell to help create a central operations center.
The Antipinsky Refinery, which is in the third stage of construction at its plant in Tyumen, Russia, is receiving control systems from Honeywell to help control plant processes and general refinery facilities. The commissioning of the plant is designed to double the refinery’s capacity to 7.5 million tons annually, helping meet the growing demand for clean fuels and other oil products in Russia and the European Union (EU).
Deploying the control systems is part of an initiative to create a single, central operations center at the Antipinsky Refinery. In addition, Honeywell will supply up to 60 additional workstations to the refinery, which will be installed in the unified refinery control center.
The new construction is part of the refinery’s plan to increase its capacity of crude oil processing and to enable production of products in the next year that meet the EU quality of the Euro-5 emission standards. The project also includes the construction of a water treatment plant, sewage treatment plant, steam generation plant and other general refinery facilities. This phase of construction is expected to be completed by the end of this year.

There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
