Yokogawa Middle East & Africa has received an order from the state-owned Egyptian Natural Gas Company (Gasco) to supply a gas pipeline management and control system.
Tokyo/Japan — Gasco is the operator of the country’s national gas grid. The company is currently engaged in a project to replace the management and supervisory control and data acquisition (Scada) systems at two central grid control centers that manage and control the flow of gas through a 7,000 km network of gas trunklines, a critical component of Egypt’s infrastructure.
This order is for a Yokogawa Enterprise Pipeline Management Solution (EPMS), a suite of applications that manage functions such as delivery scheduling and gas storage, and the company’s 'Fast/Tools Scada' software, which will monitor and control the gas pipeline and related equipment such as compressors. The EPMS supplements a basic pipeline management system with specific gas and liquid applications that enable a pipeline operator to manage delivery contracts and associated logistics in a time and energy efficient manner. With the Scada system covering monitoring and control, the EPMS will integrate the management of the data. Delivery of these systems will be completed by September 2019.
