INTECH Process Automation has been awarded a Control and Safety systems expansion project at an onshore gas terminal in the energy rich eastern region of Venezuela.
INTECH has been serving the Venezuelan oil and gas industry since early 2010 and has an excellent working relationship with the client for this project. The client requested INTECH for services on this project based on INTECH’s excellent track record in delivering multiple projects across various fields/facilities in Venezuela.
The expansion of the existing Onshore Terminal Control and Safety Systems is aimed at accommodating the future Field equipment enhancement. INTECH will work closely with the client to upgrade the current system to a new Fiber network which will give flexibility and capacity to expand the system up to client’s required no. of nodes on a Fault Tolerant Fiber Optic Communication network; reporting to the existing controllers in the control room. INTECH will ensure that the system will have the flexibility to add additional controller and/or additional DLR networks beyond the currently required no. of nodes.
INTECH’s scope of services includes:
- Hardware Design (Panel design , Network design)
- Panel Integration
- PCS and SIS IO programming ( Conventional I/O’s) – 80% of installed I/O’s
- HMI development (New HMI screens) and application changes to support Client/Server Architecture
- Panel PC – Screen setup
- Hardware & Software Internal Testing
- Integrated FAT (Hardware & Software)
- Project Management
The project is expected to be completed later this year. INTECH’s global HQ in Houston, TX will serve as the execution lead office for this project.
