LPS has developed a collection of technology that can be applied to client projects. Call us today at 713-937-7875 or e-mail us at email@example.com to discuss your situation.
Both gas and liquid steady state software that has been field proven and benchmarked against other proven products. This software is the basis for pipeline design, system expansion, station location and expansion cost estimating.
The purpose of these systems is to train pipeline operators to operate a specific pipeline without using the actual pipeline control system. The Pipeline Trainers uses a hydraulic model to simulate the pipeline and these count under the pipeline inspection services that we provide. The model generates pressures and flows. The SCADA screens are simulated by using Visual Basic or by using a Screen Generator. Alternately, an actual copy of the SCADA system can be used. The pressure and flow data is transmitted to the simulated SCADA screens using a database and a data transmission protocol. OPC is one of those protocols. SCADA commands are transmitted to the model and the PLC’s in the field are faithfully simulated.
The end result is a training system which can generate any pipeline operational scenario to train a new or experienced pipeline operator without risk.
This system models oil or products or gas transmission systems and decides which stations and units should be operated for a given flowing scenario. All operational setpoints are specified to minimize fuel or electricity usage. It interfaces to a scheduling system and transports the batches generated by the scheduling program at the lowest possible cost. DRA injection management is performed.
This system allows liquid pipelines to be modeled hydraulically and allows upsets to be analyzed. After this, specific danflo surge relief valve equipment can be designed and verified.
This methodology and software analyzes the instrumentation installed on a pipeline and determines what size leaks may be detected by “Traditional Pipeline Leak Detection Systems”. This technology uses some of the methodology and recommendations found in API 1130 and API 1149. Leak locations and sizes can be varied and detection times are reported.
