Company expands control business in midstream oil and gas market

It has been announced that the subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric Corporation, Yokogawa United Kingdom has received an order from the British Pipeline Agency (BPA) to supply a management and control system for a major multi-product fuel pipeline system. This project will replace BPA’s existing pipeline management and Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems.

The pipeline system consists of three integrated multi-product fuel pipelines that, altogether, are some 650km in length and extend from Ellesmere port in northwestern England to the country’s southeastern coast. The pipelines connect to the City of London’s major airports and are a critical part of the UK’s infrastructure,

This 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.

Yokogawa United Kingdom will be responsible for the engineering, installation, and commissioning of these systems. Yokogawa Europe Solutions B.V., which has a wealth of oil and gas pipeline project experience, will provide support. Delivery of these systems will be completed by March 2018.

In accordance with its Transformation 2017 mid-term business plan, Yokogawa targets the entire energy supply chain. The company is strengthening its efforts to drive up sales by providing solutions for oil and gas pipelines and other midstream applications. Encouraged by its success in winning this order, Yokogawa plans to expand its control business in the midstream applications segment.
