Saturn Gas Turbines undergoes certification on API standards

Saturn Gas Turbines has been included into a list of applicants to undergo an audit and receive certification under the management quality system pursuant to the API (American Petroleum Institute) Spec Q1 requirements.

The API standards are international standards recognized the world over for the oil and gas industry, and complying with them is a requirement for equipment purchasers in western countries. Today, domestic companies are also promoting these requirements.

At the beginning of the year, Saturn Gas Turbines made the decision to receive an API Spec Q1 certificate. This process includes two stages. The first stage is a review of the Management Quality Systems paperwork, and the second is an on-site audit.

The first stage of the audit has now begun: Saturn Gas Turbines has been included on the regional list of companies for certification, confirmed by the relevant note on the API website.

Saturn Gas Turbines is an integrator and supplier of high-efficiency terrestrial power equipment for Gazprom, power generation companies, public utilities companies, oil and gas companies, and energy-intensive industrial companies.

Saturn gas Turbines is the United Engine Corporationís head company for the production of power and gas transportation units and comprehensive construction of power generation facilities.

Managing Company JSC United Engine Corporation is a wholly-owned subsidiary of OBORONPROM. More than 85 % of the leading companies specializing in development, mass production, and aftersales servicing of gas turbine technology are integrated into UEC, as well as key companies in other selected fields. One of UECís priority directions is implementing comprehensive programs for developing companies by implementing new technologies that meet international standards

The American Petroleum Institute (API) is a national non-governmental organization in the USA involved in researching all aspects and supporting work to regulate matters in the oil and gas industry. The American Petroleum Institute was founded on March 20, 1919, to:

  • Cooperate with the government on all matters of national importance
  • To facilitate domestic and foreign trade of American petroleum products
  • To raise awareness of the oil industry in all its permutations

One of the APIís main areas of work is developing standards. The first API standards were published in 1924. Today the institute supports more than 500 standards and recommended practices, covering all segments of the oil and gas industry, with the aim of ensuring the use of safe, interchangeable equipment and proven engineering practices.
