INTECH Process Automation is executing an alarm system improvement project to enhance the safety, reliability and profitability of a major Gas Plant in Southern Nigeria. INTECH’s scope of work for the project covers:

  •       Analysis of Existing Alarm System (Over 8,000 Alarmable Tags)
  •       Supply of Alarm Management Software Server & Client
  •       Integration of Alarm Management System with DCS & Safety System
  •       Configuration of Process Safety Metrics Reporting in accordance to Chevron Engineering Standards and ISA 18.2
  •       Automated Alarm System Performance Reporting System for Operations & Maintenance Team
  •       Training of the Plant’s O&M Team on utilizing System to achieve Alarm Management Lifecycle

INTECH identified an opportunity to improve the alarm system at the gas plant and was awarded the project. The activity has reduced alarm average count at the plant by 60%. A large portion of nuisance non-critical equipment alarms have been removed with 120+ instruments with possibly faulty chattering alarms identified. INTECH’s performance was especially highlighted by the customer who remarked how INTECH has “provided commendable service”, which “address[ed] a significant portion of the Alarm System Issue”, and is “very competent in complete Alarms Management Life Cycle.

The concerned gas plant is located near a distributary of the Niger River in Southern Nigeria, close to Lagos. It has the capacity to process over 600 million standard cubic feet of gas per day (MMscf/d).
