Honeywell to control world's longest gas pipeline
The new pipeline crosses 14 Chinese provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities and will transport approximately 30-billion cubic yards of natural gas per year. It will play a critical role as the country, the second-largest energy consumer in the world behind the United States, transitions from coal fuel-based energy to natural gas. Each year the gas transported by the pipeline is expected to replace 76.8 million tons of coal, reduce sulfur dioxide emissions by 1.44 million tons and carbon dioxide by 130 million tons.
PetroChina will use Experion as the main integration and control software platform at the pipelines 73 control stations. Specifically, Experion will integrate alarm and event subsystems to give pipeline operators a complete view of how the pipeline is functioning. By integrating Safety Manager into the overall system, Experion will help improve process-safeguarding practices such as emergency shutdowns, equipment protection, fire and gas monitoring and critical control.
Pipelines present unique challenges because their size makes them more difficult for operators to monitor and respond to problems, but an integrated approach provides unparalleled visibility into their operations, said Samuel Wu, regional general manager, Honeywell Process Solutions Greater China. The system were putting in place for PetroChina will increase its operators access to information and help them make better-informed decisions to promote its integrity.
