Yokogawa Wins Major Distributed Control System Project in Oman

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 9/11/2003, Location: Middle East

Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that Yokogawa Middle East, its subsidiary in Bahrain, has been selected to be the main instrument vendor (MIV) for the design, engineering and supply of a process automation system (PAS) for the Saih Nihayda Gas Plant that is being built by Petroleum Development Oman (PDO)

The order was awarded by the SNC Lavalin/Al Hassan Joint Venture, Calgary, Canada which is the main contractor (EPC). This is the first major PDO project for Yokogawa that includes the CENTUM CS3000 R3 integrated control system with Foundation fieldbus technology.

As part of the Central Oman Expansion – Phase I, PDO is building this gas plant to develop the Saih Nihayda deep gas reservoirs and prepare for anticipated growth in the demand for natural gas. The scope of Yokogawa's involvement includes engineering, factory acceptance testing (FAT),the CENTUM CS3000 distributed control system (DCS),an instrumented protective system (IPS),a fire & gas system (FGS),and remote terminal units (RTU) / master terminal units (MTU) for the wellheads along with related hardware and control systems,which will have the added benefit of lowering operating and maintenance costs.

Mr.Tormod Vold, Engineering Manager of PDO's Government Gas Department, says "The new gas plant is very important for PDO because it will supply a significant portion of the gas going into the Oman gas network,which several large industry users in Oman rely on for their feed stock.While a separate PDO gas production project is using Yokogawa's new STARDOM network control system, this large gas processing plant project in central Oman will depend on the Yokogawa CENTUM CS 3000 R3 integrated control system for uninterrupted and safe gas production. We expect a significant contribution from Yokogawa's experienced project execution team and their reliable technology."

"This award is a big step for Yokogawa Middle East because it solidifies our fieldbus and engineering abilities in the region. We have the best and most complete fieldbus solution and it's good to see the industry recognize our achievement",says Teruyoshi Minaki,Senior Vice President of the International Business Headquarters.
