INTECH wins control system upgrade project at an offshore oil terminal in Bight of Benin

INTECH Process Automation wins control system upgrade project on surge boost compressor skids at an offshore terminal in Bight of Benin, off the South Nigeria coast.

The client is one of the major oil and gas companies in the world and operates the terminal in two plants. The client wished to get the surge booster compressor operational and required an upgrade of the existing control system on it.

INTECH Process Automation was awarded the project based on years of excellent working relationship and experience with the client on similar projects in the African region. INTECH’s team conducted the site survey and proposed the following:

  • New control panel housing the upgraded control system
  • HMI mounted on panel door
  • Vibration Monitoring System using the existing proximity sensors and probes
  • Hart Multiplexers for integrating field devices into PRM software
  • Communication link for integrating panel with the existing DCS
  • Surge Protectors and IS barriers for all field instruments

This two phase project; system design phase already completed; is now into fabrication, installation and commissioning phase. The current scope broadly includes supply of the control system cabinets with the following:

  • Project Management
  • Panel Integration
  • Panel Testing
  • FAT in Nigeria
  • Shipment and Delivery of Panels in Nigeria

INTECH will be using its offices in Port Harcourt, Nigeria as the lead execution office on this project.
