Honeywell To Upgrade First Ice-Class Offshore Stationary Platform On Sakhalin Shelf
August 01, 2014
Honeywell Process Solutions will upgrade process control and alarm management systems at the Molikpaq platform on the Sakhalin shelf, Russia, to improve safety, reliability and operational efficiency. The platform produces 48,000 barrels of crude oil per day.
“Offshore production is associated with a number of risks to workers, the environment and efficient processes, and demands systems that meet the highest reliability, safety and durability standards,” said Frank Whitsura, vice president, Honeywell Process Solutions. “Our solutions are designed to meet the requirements needed to operate in harsh environmental conditions and help our partners to improve their operational and cost efficiencies.”
To modernize the process control system and improve safety at the facility, Honeywell will implement the latest version of its Experion® Process Knowledge System (PKS) and DynAMo Alarm Suite (pictured above). By enabling unified access to process control, production management and asset management, the distributed control system will help to improve efficiency and profitability, reduce total cost of ownership while helping the facility achieve optimum production of oil.
