Submarino

Los sistemas de producción submarinos se encuentran a diferentes profundidades en el fondo del mar. A medida que se extrae el hidrocarburo, este puede ser enviado a una plataforma de producción en alta mar existente, o por medio de líneas que se pueden atar a las instalaciones en tierra para su procesamiento. Varios tipos de tecnología de equipo de perforación pueden perforar los pozos, y el aceite extraído así como el gas natural los cuales se transportan a la superficie a través de un tubo ascendente. Al igual que en las instalaciones en tierra, las plataformas de producción pueden dar servicio a muchos pozos en un área grande. Los sistemas submarinos extraen y en algunos casos procesan los hidrocarburos antes del transporte.

Yokogawa ofrece soluciones integradas de control y monitoreo que maximizan la productividad del submarino, de la marina, y las operaciones en cubierta mientras se mantienen en un ambiente seguro.

System Integration by Flexible and modular approach

Our Solutions

Yokogawa ICSS architecture and solution for FLNG utilize the technology in a flexible and modular approach. We are using our distributed ICSS architecture to its full extend when designing a Total Integrated Modular System to minimize RISK during Design, Installation and Commissioning until “The first LNG”.Autonomous Control and Safety/Fire & Gas system of different process modules are ensured by utilizing dedicated network segment and controllers, as well as distributed I/O modules for each autonomous systems.

In large modules, dedicated operation stations supporting the segment are installed in the Local Equipment Room (LER).

Our concept for implementing a solution for ICSS onboard a FLNG facility, is made in modular design. Cost effective and time saving execution are implemented in multiple locations, and delivered to each modules on schedule. Each module can be tested locally, before shipped to the assembly yard for final integration.

The Hull ICSS can be implemented separately from topside process modules and put into operation in due time before installation of topside. This is also applicable to Subsea ICSS, which Yokogawa is able to integrate the Subsea Master Control in a same manner.

Customer Benefits

Minimize RISK during Design, Installation and Commissioning

Enabling Technology

Yokogawa's ICSS with N-IO (Network I/O), the next-generation smart configurable I/O, allows flexible-binding I/O assignments. Matched with the FieldMate Validator, our commissioning tool, this allows for significantly faster project completion and reduced costs without compromising on quality.

Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO)

A Floating Production, Storage, and Offloading (FPSO) unit is a floating offshore production facility that stores both processing equipment and storage for produced hydrocarbons. Hydrocarbons are produced by platforms or subsea templates, and then passed to the FPSO facility. The FPSO facility then processes the oil and stores it until it can be transported via a pipeline or oil tanker. Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) units are used by oil companies make it economically feasible to produce oil in remote areas and in deeper water.

Floating LNG (FLNG)

Yokogawa has more than 30 Years’ experience in executing LNG projects, and has acquired significant engineering knowledge through the whole chain. Combining Yokogawa’s knowledge from Liquefaction, Regasification and LNG transportation, together with the rich experience in offshore production facilities, Yokogawa provides unique know how and capabilities in executing global FLNG projects throughout the lifetime of the facility.

 

Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU)

Years of study have shown that large floating production, storage, and off-loading (FPSO) vessels are increasingly feasible solutions for LNG projects. Even though offshore and onshore natural gas liquefaction and regasification plants have different requirements, both must rely on proven liquefaction and regasification processes. Ballast and cargo loading/unloading control are also very similar on LNG carriers. Based on its rich LNG liquefaction, regasification, and carrier experience and its expertise in various kinds of floating production systems, Yokogawa is confident in its ability to provide a full range of production management, asset management, safety management, power management, and compressor control solutions for floating LNG (FLNG) and floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) projects.

Overview:

Reverse osmosis (RO) is a separation process that uses pressure to force a solution through a membrane that retains the solute on one side and allows the pure solvent to pass to the other side. More formally, it is the process of forcing a solvent from a region of high solute concentration through a membrane to a region of low solute concentration by applying a pressure in excess of the osmotic pressure.

Recientemente, varios analistas del ARC Advisory Group y miembros de la gerencia tuvieron la oportunidad de sentarse con el nuevo Presidente de Yokogawa y COO, Sr. Takashi Nishijima, y varios otros altos ejecutivos de Yokogawa para discutir la presencia mundial de la compañía en la industria del gas y el petróleo.

Overview:

Alarm management is not just a project that has a start and end date; it's a continuous cycle. Once the alarm system has been reviewed and improvements have been identified, we must check that controls are in place to ensure the alarm system remains functional. The key is to ensure that the system is continuously monitored and any changes are fully documented. There are seven key steps for alarm management. Rationalization is one of those critical steps.

Overview:

Tuning PID controllers can seem a mystery. Parameters that provide effective control over a process one day fail to do so the next. The stability and responsiveness of a process seem to be at complete odds with each other. And controller equations include subtle differences that can baffle even the most experienced practitioners. 

Overview:

The worlds of process automation and production management have been converging for some time. What once used to be islands of automation and production management functionality connected through highly proprietary integration schemes that were costly to maintain have developed into integrated platforms that provide seamless data exchange between the world of automation and the plant floor, the functions of production and operations management, and integration with business level systems.

Overview:

The world of process automation is governed by procedures. While we like to refer to the process industries as being largely "continuous", this could not be further from the truth. Process manufacturing is constantly in flux.

Overview:

The automation suppliers that will be successful in the long term will be those that effectively address application or industry specific problems for end users with a value proposition that cannot be ignored. These problems exist throughout the process industries today, and they won't be solved by simply offering a product, but through a combination of hardware, software, services, application expertise, and knowledge.

Overview:

In ARC's view, customers need a compelling business value proposition to justify investment in any kind of automation. Vigilance and VigilantPlant were created with this in mind. Yokogawa's vision with VigilantPlant is to create an environment where plant personnel and operators are well informed, alert, and ready to take action. 

Documentación Técnica
Overview:

Yokogawa ha recorrido un largo camino en hacer que su mensaje sea claro en el mundo de la automatización de procesos. El año pasado, la compañía se embarcó en una campaña global de marketing a gran escala para que los clientes conocieran el enfoque de la compañía en la confiabilidad del sistema, su seguridad, constancia y durabilidad. Denominado "Vigilancia", la campaña creó un mensaje unificado para la empresa y en gran medida ayudó a aumentar la difusión de la marca Yokogawa y la filosofía de la empresa.
