Honeywell Software Used For Third Phase Of Central Asia-To-China Natural Gas Pipeline
May 05, 2014
Asia Trans Gas selected Honeywell’s Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) and Safety Manager technology to manage operations and to help prevent safety problems in a third pipeline to be built as part of the Central Asia-China Gas Pipeline (CACGP) project. The same Honeywell technology is in use in the first two pipelines of the project, which are already in operation. Asia Trans Gas is a joint venture of China National Petroleum Corp. (CNPC) and Uzbekistan national holding company UzbekNefteGas.
“Pipelines present unique challenges because their length makes them more difficult for operators to monitor and respond to problems, but an integrated approach provides unparalleled visibility into their operations,” said Aldous Wong, regional general manager, Honeywell Process Solutions, Greater China. “The Honeywell system will increase operators’ access to information and help them make faster, better-informed decisions to promote the integrity and safety of the pipeline.”
“Natural gas from Central Asia plays an important role in providing cleaner energy for China and we expect demand to grow at 8 percent per year,” said Li Lin, general manager, Asia Trans Gas. “Asia Trans Gas is pleased to continue to partner with Honeywell to manage these critical pipeline operations efficiently and safely.”
