Oil and Gas Exploration

Our approach is based around integrated, combined solutions, which can encompass SCADA, Process Control, Emergency Shut Down, Fire & Gas Detection, HIPPS, Protection and Data Logging and Reporting facilities.

We have experience of designing offshore safety systems in accordance with IEC 61508/11 and we incorporated a similar philosophy several years before the publication of the standard. Examples include a Triconex TMR system for Emergency Shutdown and Fire and Gas Detection application for the Nexen Scott Platform and a similar Triconex TMR solution for BG Group North Everest and Lomond platforms.

We can provide systems up to SIL3 together with all the necessary project lifecycle methodologies in line with our SIRA accredited CASS certification.

Where control systems may be ageing and obsolete and require a cost effective upgrade / replacement program, we can provide consultancy and solutions to extend platform life.

Our engineers hold the relevant offshore safety certificates and are qualified to carry out all offshore site activities.

Refining Applications

Our approach is based around integrated, combined solutions, which can encompass SCADA, Process Control, Emergency Shut Down, Fire & Gas Detection, HIPPS, Protection and Data Logging and Reporting facilities.

We can provide systems up to SIL3 together with all the necessary project lifecycle methodologies in line with our SIRA accredited CASS certification.

Oil & Gas refineries generally rely on Distributed Control Systems (DCS) to provide all process and equipment control functionality. However, it is now quite common to use a SCADA/PLC system to control all or part of an Oil & Gas refinery.

We provide consultancy and solutions where control systems may be ageing and obsolete and require a cost effective upgrade / replacement program.

Transmission, Distribution & Storage

Applications include pipelines, terminals (road, sea and rail tanker), tank farms, compressor stations, airports and gas storage.

Our approach is based around integrated, combined solutions, which can encompass SCADA, Process Control, Emergency Shut Down, Fire & Gas Detection, HIPPS, Protection and Data Logging and Reporting facilities, Metering and Leak Detection.

Many UK pipelines, both single and multi product, have control and automation solutions provided by Cetix and include SCADA, PLC, RTU, Fiscal Metering, Leak Detection and Condition Monitoring.

We provide systems for the automation of road, sea and rail tanker loading including tank farms.

Several compressor stations on the UK national gas transmission network have control and monitoring systems supplied by Cetix.

We also supply automation solutions to airports for fuel handling and for underground and above ground gas storage facilities.

All systems can be certified up to SIL3 together with all the necessary project lifecycle methodologies in line with our SIRA accredited CASS certification.

We offer consultancy and solutions for extension of asset life, where control systems may be ageing and obsolete and require a cost effective upgrade / replacement program.

Petrochemical

Our approach is based around integrated, combined solutions, which can encompass SCADA, Process Control, Emergency Shut Down, Fire & Gas Detection, HIPPS, Protection and Data Logging and Reporting facilities.

We can provide systems up to SIL3 together with all the necessary project lifecycle methodologies in line with our SIRA accredited CASS certification.

The petrochemical industry generally relies on Distributed Control Systems (DCS) to provide all process and equipment control functionality. However it is now quite common to use a SCADA/PLC system to control all or part of an Oil & Gas refinery.
