A new plant performance solution for Gassco

16 January 2008

Gassco, Norwegian state-owned gas transportation company, claims to have reduced operating costs, boosted yields and increased flexibility of its Kårstø plant with a solution from Invensys Process Systems.

The ROMeo (Rigorous Online Modelling with Equation-based Optimisation) and Wonderware solution is designed to enable Gassco to plan and book the maximum capacity available.

Under the agreement the companies will jointly develop a Production Planning Performance Model (3PM) using Invensys technology.

The 3PM will have dual functionality to achieve the requirements of both the Planning and Operations departments.

Svein Birger Thaule, of Gassco VP Technology, said advanced modelling was needed to optimise operations in real time.

John Derbyshire, of VP Invensys Global Solutions, said the company had already had success in refining and petrochemical process optimisation and upstream production management, adding, ‘this project award further underlines that ROMeo is fast becoming a standard for on-line optimisation in all areas of Hydrocarbon Processing.’
