Yokogawa United Kingdom has received an order from the British Pipeline Agency Limited (BPA), a provider of engineering and operational services to the oil and gas pipeline sector, to supply a management and control system for a multi-product fuel pipeline system. This project will replace BPA’s existing pipeline management and SCADA systems.
The pipeline system consists of three integrated multi-product fuel pipelines that, altogether, are some 650km in length.
The order is for Yokogawa’s Enterprise Pipeline Management Solution (EPMS), which will manage functions such as delivery scheduling and oil storage, and the FAST/TOOLS SCADA software, which will monitor and control the oil pipelines and related equipment such as compressors.
The EPMS supplements a basic pipeline management system with specific gas and liquid applications that enable a pipeline operator to manage delivery contracts and associated logistics in a time and energy efficient manner. With the SCADA system covering monitoring and control, the EPMS will integrate the management of the SCADA data.
