Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) has recently announced that it will help improve operations across China's Guangxi LNG high-pressure pipeline utilising its gas measurement equipment.
HPS gas measurement and equipment used on China pipeline
HPS gas measurement, equipment and software to measure the flow and pressure in the pipeline will be used at this significant pipeline. The Guangxi LNG pipeline will play a critical role in optimising China's energy structure and meeting the demand for LNG in Guangxi.
Honeywell’s integrated gas measurement technologies include software and sensors that measure flow, temperature, pressure and other indicators that are critical to maintain optimum performance throughout the entire long-distance pipeline.
Guangxi LNG high-pressure pipeline
Due to be completed by the end of 2015, the pipeline will have a capacity of 8 billion m3 of LNG a year and a total length of over 1300 miles – from Maoming to Beihai in the Guangxi region. HPS technology is already being used on all three of the 1100 mile Central Asia to China pipelines as well as the 5600 mile West to East II pipeline that runs across China.
Comment from Honeywell Process Solutions
"We are able to draw upon our experience in long-distance, natural gas high-pressure pipelines to provide expertise to this essential clean energy project," said Aldous Wong, HPS vice president, Greater China. "Pipelines have challenges that are very different from processing plants since you have to manage an operation that is hundreds or sometimes thousands of miles long. Measurements such as flow and pressure must be accurate and immediately accessible to keep the pipeline operating most efficiently."
