The client wanted to monitor the injection gas pressure of gas lift remotely in central control room. Antitheft measures are needed to install new equipments and cables.
Operation cost reduced by eliminating the visit to the platforms to monitor the gas pressure. No need to prevent cable thefts.
Four hundred pressure transmitters should be installed.
The client chose to use wireless transmitters which don't need to use cables to transmit data to central control room. Four hundred of wireless pressure transmitters were installed on offshore wells for monitoring gas pressure of gas lift. The long range communication capability and massive scalability of Yokogawa's plant-wide field wireless system enabled this offshore application.
EJX430B and EJX110B x 400
YFGW710 x 90
Install cost reduced due to no need for cabling and antitheft measure for cable.
Eliminating the visit to the platforms reduced operation cost drastically. Safety of personnel was enhanced due to no need for travel over the sea.
Productivity enhancement is expected due to early pressure change detection.
EJX series Wireless Pressure Transmitter
Yokogawa has a wealth of experience in every part of the oil and gas business, from offshore and onshore facilities to pipelines, terminals, and deepwater operations. We provide solutions that enhance safety, ensure accurate and reliable operation, and increase plant efficiency.
The upstream industry includes offshore and onshore activities including wellhead automation, fractionation, completion, and separation to recover and prepare underground or underwater crude oil and natural gas.
As petroleum is brought to the surface, it must be separated prior to transport. Primary and secondary separation stages commonly distribute gas flow, water flow, and oil flow in three phase separation. Gas movement requires pipeline and can include a fractionation process in the upstream stage prior to movement. Liquids can be placed into a tanks or pipelines and sent for processing, requiring accurate level measurements.
The high performance wireless differential pressure transmitter EJX110B features a single crystal silicon resonant sensor and is suitable to measure liquid, gas, or steam flow as well as liquid level, density, and pressure.
The high performance wireless guage pressure transmitter EJX430B features a single crystal silicon resonant sensor and are suitable to measure liquid, gas, or steam flow as well as liquid level, density, and pressure.
YFGW710 Field Wireless Integrated Gateway comply to the wireless communications standard ISA100.11a for industrial automation of International Society of Automation (ISA), and relays ISA100 Device data to the system via integrated backbone router. Single unit of YFGW710 has integrated functions of backbone router, system manager, security manage, and gateway.
The flexibility of wireless solutions enables less investment in infrastructure while providing greater insights into plant operations.
