Honeywell to install fire & gas detection system at pipeline in Ceyhan
The BTC pipeline is a crude oil pipeline running from the Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli oil field in the Caspian Sea to the Mediterranean Sea. It connects Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan; Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia; and the port of Ceyhan on the south-eastern coast of Turkey, hence the name BTC pipeline. At 1,768 kilometers (1,099 mi) long, it is the second longest pipeline in the world. The project is funded by a consortium of 11 oil and gas companies and is led by BP Plc.
The new fire and gas detection system will include Honeywells Safety Manager and Searchline Excel open path gas detectors, as well as closed-circuit television (CCTV) flame detectors. The system will cover the tank farm, metering and jetty areas at the Ceyhan terminal. Honeywells Experion Process Knowledge System (PKS) also will be installed in the terminals central control room and used to monitor all aspects of the system including alarming, event and video recording. In addition, the new fire and gas detection system will be fully integrated with existing automation systems on the BTC pipeline, further increasing plant safety by providing operators with full insight into all gas levels and flame detection, allowing for better decision making.
Enhancing the safety of a major pipeline requires the right technology and experience in order to keep the process safe and operations on track, said Naci Erakýn, country leader, Honeywell Process Solutions, Turkey. Streamlined information, professional project management and effective solutions for the customer all play major roles in addressing the pipelines safety. Our solution will help keep the plant operating safely and provide operators with additional information that will help improve the performance of the pipeline.
