SCADA and Data Acquisition:
Natural Gas Production
Objective: Automate 24 sites in Rural Villahermosa, Mexico using Radio Telemetry
This particular project involved using Radio Telemetry to monitor remote gas production sites. The operators needed a central PC to retrieve the production data, view site status, and perform shut downs. Data included AGA-3 calculations from the flow computer (SM805-AGA-3).
NBT, the Telemetry/SCADA division of EPG, designed, documented, assembled, programmed, and tested the complete system in the factory. Just 5 weeks after receipt of the order, NBT shipped a complete, turn key SCADA system that matched the customer’s specifications. Once received, the mostly Spanish speaking engineers, used our documentation to install and startup the entire system. The SCADA PC was also setup and started without on-site factory support.
The PEMEX system has been in and running without a glitch. There have been NO system problems related to the telemetry equipment. Additional stations and systems have also been added since the original system. Other gas production monitoring systems are in varying stages of completion. The scope of these additional systems has increased, now including automatic report generation and increased point counts.
Most systems integrate bits and pieces of hardware and software from different sources. This is normally required to meet the varying specifications between systems. NBT equipment has the built-in flexibility and functionality to fulfill the requirements of virtually any system. From gas and electric applications to landfill, municipal utilities and industrial applications, we have a solution. Additionally, all NBT products feature an industry standard MODBUS protocol which ensures open connectivity to any existing or new systems.
