Enterprise Pipeline Management Solution

March 13, 2018
R1.03, the latest version of Yokogawa’s Enterprise Pipeline Management Solution (EPMS), gains new capabilities.

The EPMS supplements a core SCADA platform with specific gas and liquid applications that enable a pipeline operator to manage delivery contracts and associated logistics in a safe, cost effective, and efficient manner. New functionality in this version includes enhanced interface management that allows multiple product cuts from the same interface to be performed, for easy management of quality gradations, and supports the use of product density meters to detect variations in interface quality based on color and sulfur content; the sharing of multiple flow paths using the same physical meter, by assigning a so-called “logical meter” to each flow path; and enhanced batch management, through support of side stream injection and stripping as a product batch passes an intermediate delivery or receiving site. Functions handled by the EPMS suite include gas/liquid nomination and metering, energy value calculation, batch and tank management (multi-product liquids), pipeline integrity monitoring and compressor/pump energy monitoring.
