Project to consolidate control rooms and systems at oil refinery

Yokogawa has received a contract to execute a FEED project to consolidate control rooms and systems for JX Nippon Oil's Mizushima-A oil refinery in Japan.

09/27/2013


Yokogawa Solution Service Corporation, a subsidiary that oversees Yokogawa’s IA and control business in Japan, has received an order from JX Nippon Oil and Energy Corporation (JXE) to execute the front end engineering design (FEED) for a project to consolidate the control rooms and systems at its Mizushima-A oil refinery. 

To strengthen its global competitiveness, JXE is working hard to ensure the safe and stable operations at all of its refineries in Japan. One of the means to accomplish this is the consolidation of control rooms, which facilitates faster decision making and improves efficiency by allowing the different refinery units to share more information. Consolidation of the control systems will enable the refinery’s various processing units to share more production data, leading to more integrated operations and improved efficiency. 

During the planning phase of this project, Yokogawa conducted a feasibility study of control systems. Yokogawa is preparing a master plan to introduce a Centum VP production control system that will integrate the monitoring and control functions for units throughout the refinery complex that are currently handled by multiple control systems. This master plan will also address the introduction of a ProSafe-RS, a safety instrumented system to ensure the safety of processes throughout the refinery.
