Australia Pacific LNG has selected technology developed by Honeywell Process Solutions
(HPS) Advanced Solutions business to deliver a data consolidation and reporting technology framework.
Built on Honeywell’s Intuition Executive software, the technology will support the production, operation and asset management functions of Australia Pacific LNG’s world-class CSG to LNG project.
Origin, the upstream operator of the Australia Pacific LNG Project is currently the largest producer of Coal Seam Gas (CSG) in Australia, supplying gas to power stations to produce electricity with lower greenhouse gas emissions. The Australia Pacific LNG Project will supplement domestic gas production and deliver cleaner energy to a world market.
Honeywell's Intuition Executive software for enterprise-wide information integration and real-time visualisation combines information and graphics to help users make better decisions and drive intelligent operations by managing, monitoring and optimising production and operations.
HPS’ Coal Seam Gas operations monitoring solution is a configurable data consolidation, analysis and reporting environment built on Intuition Executive. The scalable solution is flexible to meet the demands typical of the rapid expansion of field and facility infrastructure in emerging CSG operations.
According to Ian Brown, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Process Solutions’ Advanced Solutions business, the CSG industry in Australia is experiencing huge growth in a highly competitive environment with CSG operators facing the challenge to safely, reliably and efficiently increase production while balancing manned and unmanned local production with remote, centralised management of operations.
HPS’ integrated solution will assist Australia Pacific LNG by ensuring the right information gets to the right people at the right time to support decisions that will achieve the project’s business priorities of scalability, efficiency, safety and reliability while transforming its business.
Australia Pacific LNG’s operational framework, built on Intuition Executive will support improved communication and data management, cross functional workflows and improved notification of key operational events to better analyse, prioritise, automate and manage operational tasks and abnormal situations. This will include well surveillance, defects management, support for operator and maintenance work procedures, and supply chain related initiatives as Australia Pacific LNG expands to deliver LNG to the market.
