Executive Summary

Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. Chennai, India
Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. Chennai, India

The Chennai-Bangalore Pipeline (CBPL) has been constructed by the Indian Oil Corporation Ltd. (IOCL) to ensure uninterrupted, reliable, and economical transportation of petroleum products to meet the growing demand in and around the city of Bangalore, India.

The pipeline originates at Chennai Petroleum Corporation's Manali refinery near Chennai, passes through Chittoor in Andhra Pradesh, and terminates at IOCL's Devanagonthi terminal on the outskirts of Bangalore. Completed three months ahead of schedule, this 290-km underground pipeline has one booster pump and three main line pumps, and can transport 1.45 million tons of products per year.

IOCL selected Yokogawa's FAST/TOOLS SCADA system to provide integrated and centralized monitoring and control of pipeline operations from the Chennai station. The principal elements in this solution are STARDOM intelligent remote terminal units (RTUs), the FAST/TOOLS SCADA package, and a fiber optic telemetry system. As a backup for monitoring and control communications, a redundant leased line links the Chennai and Bangalore stations. A pipeline leak detection system (LDS) was also installed and commissioned.

The Challenges and the Solutions

Centralized control and monitoring
To achieve a centralized control and monitoring function, servers located in the Chennai and Bangalore stations are linked with each other. Chennai is the master station and is able to control the Bangalore station remotely with the authorization of the Bangalore terminal operator. SCADA operator stations at the Bangalore terminal are capable of displaying status information from the Chennai station.

Integration with LDS
The SCADA servers at the Chennai station are linked to the LDS for real-time display of information on leaks detected in the pipeline. High-priority alerts and other data are exchanged in real time between the LDS and the SCADA servers when leaks are detected.

Integration with IOCL intranet for pipeline monitoring
IOCL offices all over India are able to monitor the pipeline on the company intranet. Once per minute, the SCADA servers at Chennai populate the IOCL intranet server database and a web application displays this real-time pipeline status information. This gives IOCL personnel a clear view of pipeline operations. In this way, STARDOM facilitates the total visualization of data needed for safe and reliable pipeline operations.
