Cheniere LNG Inc.—a unit of Cheniere Energy Inc.—has selected Invensys Process Systems to implement the Terminal Operations Management System (TOMS) for the company’s Sabine Pass LNG-receiving terminal (Sabine) being built in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.
TOMS will employ a system architecture that integrates over 20, critical software-systems from Invensys and third-parties to support the supervision and management of the Sabine, with scalability to accommodate additional terminals. Invensys will provide consulting, software products, and a range of integration, implementation, testing and training services, all of which will leverage Invensys’ extensive expertise and experience in the global LNG industry.
TOMS will automate and integrate business processes in customer services, production operations and compliance management. Additionally, Cheniere’s enterprise-level business systems will be integrated. Software systems involved range from ship tracking and terminal operations planning, to enterprise asset management, operations execution, LNG tank composition, terminal performance management, incident management and security monitoring. TOMS implementation will be founded on: a unified architecture; universal data exchange with enterprise systems; use of standardized interfaces; data storage and retrieval; modular architecture, and web-based solutions.
