Automation solutions for oil and gas facilities
Helping to achieve operational readiness
ANDRITZ helps oil and gas facilities around the world bridge the gap between concept and production to achieve operational readiness - quickly, safely, reliably, and ahead of the curve.
The control system in a modern oil and gas operation touches every piece of equipment and instrument in the plant, like a nervous system touches every muscle and receptor in the body. Nothing will be conveyed, classified, or pumped until the plant’s “nervous system” is operationally ready. In short, the control of a plant can mean the difference between profit and loss.
That’s why ANDRITZ has an engineering group that focuses on the design of electrical, control, and instrumentation systems. These disciplines typically account for a small portion of the total project budget, but their importance to the operation of a plant is paramount.
We structure our scope of supply to fit commercial needs, from engineering to engineering and equipment supply, to engineering, procurement and construction. Whatever the situation, we have the people, the patents, and the proven tools to ensure that a plant is operationally ready.
Our simulation capabilities for pipelines have been proven after a successful performance on the Hardisty Cavern Storage project for Enbridge pipelines. In fact, Enbridge, the largest batch transporter of liquid petroleum products in North America, applies the IDEAS simulator as a key technology when analyzing valve performance. ANDRITZ solutions include the IDEAS VMG and IDEAS OLI engines.
Advanced process control
Our patented, PID-replacement controller BrainWave is revolutionizing control at operations around the globe. ANDRITZ has helped producers large and small remove bottlenecks, reduce energy and chemical consumption, produce higher quality products more consistently, and lower production costs. Our solutions include BrainWave SRU.
