Project Profiles

Some of the projects we have completed:

Alarm rationalization facilitation for a gas sweetening unit in a NGL extraction facility.

Management of the delivery of automation & measurement systems for a Unit Train Oil Loading Terminal facility, and associated supply pipeline operating in batched mode.

Management of the delivery of automation & measurement systems for a SAGD wellpad addition project within an existing SAGD production field. The project included numerous facility process and process control enhancements based on lessons learned from the initial phases.

Development of an Abnormal Situation Management Consortium (ASM) compliant graphic operator interface standard and associated implementation templates for a heavy oil production company to enhance operator situational awareness resulting in reduced facility downtime, improved production, and improved product quality.

Development of a measurement standard for a heavy oil production company to ensure regulatory compliance, provide for accurate facility material balance, and ensure integrity of custody transfer metering.

FEED level automation & measurement systems engineering support of the development of a Diluent Recovery unit for a heavy oil production company.

FEED level automation & measurement systems engineering support for the development of a Solvent Injection Enhanced Recovery unit for a heavy oil production company.

FEED level automation, measurement, and communication systems engineering support for a Measurement Reconciliation project on a 1000 km NGL batched product pipeline system.

FEED, detailed and implementation level automation, and communication systems engineering support for the migration of SCADA communication on a 1000 km NGL batched product pipeline system from leased terrestrial telephone circuits to a combination of satellite and WAN data links including circuit redundancy and enhanced data security.

Client operations team automation & measurement systems lessons learned representation on a SAGD development project to ensure lessons learned from a previous phase was integrated into the project during the design phase.

Client operations team automation & measurement systems representation in design, and HAZOP reviews during detailed engineering of a 110,000 bpd SAGD development project.

Management of the development of Abnormal Situation Management Consortium (ASM) compliant graphic operator interface standard and associated implementation templates for a 110,000 bpd SAGD development project to enhance operator situational awareness resulting in reduced facility downtime, improved production, and improved product quality.

FEED level support for a project to convert an existing MS RDB based instrument & control index to Smart Plant Intools for a 35,000 bpd SAGD production facility.

FEED level support for a project to migrate an engineering contractor instance of a Smart Plant Intools database for a 110,000 bpd SAGD development project to the owner’s owner-operator instance of Smart Plant Intools.

Initiation of an Alarm Management project for a 35,000 bpd SAGD production facility including development of the Alarm Philosophy, selection and procurement of Alarm Management software, generation of initial alarm systems performance reports, and definition of the ongoing Alarm Management Program.

Management of an operational sequencer standardization project in which all automated sequential operations were standardized across the central processing facility of a 35,000 bpd SAGD production facility resulting in improved operations and reduced downtime.

Management of the delivery of automation & measurement systems changes and enhancements associated with numerous plant and field process optimization and de-bottlenecking projects for a 35,000 bpd SAGD production facility from FEED through implementation.

Technical management of a multi-field SCADA implementation project including initial development of a standardized, configurable RTU program targeted to address the requirements of 80% of an initially targeted 13,000 wells, and the associated standardized, configurable SCADA HOST implementation.

Management of FEED for a corporate Data Historian implementation with the goal of aggregating data from all production field located Data Historians, and the implementation of field Data Historian in locations where they were not present.

Implementation of Truck Terminal Management Systems at 12 NGL Truck Terminals located across Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, and paperless integration with the Intero business management system employed by the business unit.

Upgrade of metering at all meter stations along a 1000 km NEB regulated NGL batched product pipeline system.

Management of the upgrade of the leak detection model on a 1000 km NGL batched product pipeline system.

Management of the delivery of automation & measurement systems changes and enhancements associated with numerous pipeline station, truck terminal, train terminal, and storage cavern for a 1000 km NGL batched product pipeline system from FEED through implementation.

Management of the delivery of automation & measurement systems changes and enhancements associated with numerous NGL Extraction Plant expansion and enhancement projects from FEED through implementation.
