Yokogawa Middle East & Africa B.S.C., a subsidiary of Yokogawa Electric Corp, has received an order from the state-owned Egyptian Natural Gas Company (GASCO), operator of the country’s gas grid, to supply a gas pipeline management and control system.
GASCO transmits and processes natural gas. 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 centres that manage and control the flow of gas through a 7000 km network of gas trunklines, a critical component of Egypt’s infrastructure.
The 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 efficiently. With the SCADA system covering monitoring and control, the EPMS will integrate the management of the SCADA data. Delivery of these systems will be completed by September 2019.
Hideki Matsubayashi, Yokogawa Vice President, Chief Executive for the Middle East, Africa and India and President of Yokogawa Middle East & Africa B.S.C., said: “We are very honoured that this customer has chosen, based on an assessment of our technical expertise and products, to award us the order for this critically important project. We are committed to making full use of our rich experience in this field to bring this essential infrastructure project to a successful conclusion.”
