Yokogawa’s Enterprise Pipeline Management Solution (EPMS) provides a comprehensive series of standard software applications which are integrated within the FAST/TOOLS real-time system platform to facilitate pipeline management and operations.
Derived from our many years of experience through numerous projects in the oil and gas pipeline industries, EPMS substantially reduces application deployment time while affording the reliability of fully-tested and proven, industry-standard algorithms for measurement, monitoring and system management.
Integration with FAST/TOOLS allows the full EPMS capabilities to be applied throughout the enterprise for the most effective information utilization and decision support.
Unlike customized applications, EPMS is easily maintained and upgraded. Since EPMS is completely version-coherent with FAST/TOOLS, users realize the most effective possible life cycle management. EPMS and FAST/TOOLS always share compatible version updates and a common development roadmap.
At the same time, the standardized functions provide the flexibility to be tuned and extended to fit specific customer needs.
The object-oriented EPMS structure expedites configuration of user graphics and data structures. Plus, EPMS maintains the same scalability as FAST/TOOLS. Therefore, system expansions such as new pipeline construction, mergers & acquisitions, etc. are readily implemented.
EPMS delivers the following integrated and interrelated functions:
EPMS consists of two application solutions:
Yokogawa presents a quick tour of a demo application for a Gas Pipeline SCADA Host. The tour shows Scheduling, EFM/EGM Metering Management, Storage, Compression, and Line Pack functionality.
Yokogawa presents a quick walk through of a liquids handling pipeline SCADA Host implemented in FAST/TOOLS 10.01. It features the fictitious AlbertaSouth Pipeline that includes tank farms, pump stations, block valves, metering stations, provers, pig launchers and receivers. It features applications like leak detection, batch scheduling, and strapping tables for storage tanks. Although it is a demonstration pipeline it does feature functionality that Yokogawa has deployed across the world on real pipeline SCADA Host projects.
