    Powering Competitiveness in Oil and Gas

    Powering Competitiveness in Oil and Gas


    With the highly automated production process of the oil and gas industry, only a few operators are normally required to run the production line for one to two million tons of natural gas per year. In these circumstances, distributed control systems (DCS) or programmable logic controllers (PLC) are extensively applied for control rooms, boilers, storage, water treatment, methanol and other areas. The reliability and quality of a power supply system is by no means the primary focus, and a UPS is the safeguard to guarantee strict power protection. In addition, emergency lighting, fire exhaust, and pumps also need UPSs as a reliable power back up. For natural gas pipelines, there is a cabinet every 500 to 1000 meters for gas leakage detection, monitoring, and communications. Single-phase UPSs are also installed for critical power supplies.

    Besides factory facilities, UPSs are a datacenter necessity in the oil and gas sector to secure enterprise application platforms, surveillance, security systems, data storage, fire systems and more.


    Customer Needs

    Oil refinery plants are continuously running the refining process which means constant exposure to a harsh environment with corrosive chemicals, high temperatures, and high air pressures. The required reliability of a DCS system can be up to 99.9% or 100,000 hours of MTBF (mean time between failures) for complete monitoring and management. The ultimate reliability of the backup power system is always the top priority. However, in IT-extensive application scenarios such as server rooms or datacenters, leading AC-AC efficiency and UPS scalability are also highly appreciated by customers for realizing energy savings and cost optimization.
