November 28, 2011 - Honeywell has been selected by Bechtel International Inc. to design and implement automation and safety solutions for a new multi-train liquefied natural gas (LNG) facility under construction as part of the Australia Pacific LNG Project in Queensland. The Australia Pacific LNG Project -- a joint venture between Origin Energy, ConocoPhillips and Sinopec -- will create a long-term industry utilising Australia Pacific LNG’s coal seam gas (CSG) resources in the Surat and Bowen basins. Bechtel selected Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) to provide vital Integrated Control and Safety Systems (ICSS) at the new facility, which is designed to convert CSG to LNG. The Project will produce coal steam gas for commercial markets both locally and overseas and already supplies gas to power stations in Queensland, major industrial customers and homes and businesses in south east Queensland. The solution consists of components including Experion PKS, Honeywell’s process distributed control system; Safety Manager, which delivers enhanced safety assurance for operators who oversee industrial processes; and Honeywell’s Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS), Fire & Gas Systems (FGS), and Enterprise Building Integrator, which serves as a platform for both fire detection systems and security systems, integrating seamlessly with Experion PKS to provide operators with total situational awareness. “Honeywell solutions will provide Australia Pacific LNG with a safe and reliable system from day one,” said Frank Whitsura, vice president-HPS Projects and Automation Solutions. “We design our systems to integrate seamlessly with other Honeywell and third party products and solutions. This increases efficiency and reduces risk on a project so that it is completed on time and on-budget, which is the best possible outcome for all."
