Protection systems will detect high pressure on offshore platforms, preventing release of toxic fluids
Tyco Flow Control has been awarded a contract for approximately $6 million by India’s Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) to supply several High Integrity Pressure Protection Systems (HIPPS). HIPPS are designed and applied to protect personnel and infrastructure from dangerous high pressure that can build up in pipelines as a result of a process or machinery malfunction.
The complete product design will integrate Tyco’s ball valves with actuators, controls, transmitters, manifolds and logic solvers. The package will also include an integrated factory acceptance test and safety assessment report.
HIPPS bring a plant or equipment into a safe condition on demand. It is required in cases where a process or machinery malfunction can lead to:
- hazards for personnel
- adverse effect on environment
- equipment damage
- considerable economic loss
"For Tyco og de kunder, vi serverer, er sikkerhed den højeste prioritet," sagde Sheri Roberts-Updike, vicedirektør og daglig leder for Tyco Valves & Control's globale olie- og gasvirksomhed. "ONGC ved, at det kan regne med Tyco HIPPS for at beskytte hvad der er vigtigt fra usikre trykniveauer, nu og i de kommende år. Tycos integrerede tilgang og evne til at vælge og levere den rigtige ventil til applikationen gør vores tilbud unikt. "
The completed HIPPS systems will be shipped to Abu Dhabi, UAE, where they will be installed on ONGC’s N-15 and N-16 offshore wellhead platforms. The platforms will then be transported to Mumbai, for installation in early 2012.
