Maximizing Synergy between Industrial Automation and Ethernet Networks for the Oil and Gas Industry
Oil and gas are still indispensible fuels for the global economy, and exploring for new sources of oil and gas remains a lucrative and attractive endeavor. New oil platforms, rigs, and pipelines are constantly being constructed to meet the demand for oil, with a corresponding growth in the number of factories and control centers used to process and manage crude oil. To maximize efficiency and safety, these systems are becoming more integrated, but unfortunately, the traditional SCADA systems used by the oil and gas industry are difficult to integrate because they are highly independent and have limited connectivity to other systems. This limitation will need to be overcome as oil facilities grow more complex, and safety and reliability grow ever more important. Moxas complete range of industrial networking, monitoring, and computing products are engineered for harsh mission-critical environments, and provide the reliability, flexibility, and safety needed to maintain and operate oil and gas facilities.

Achieve Operational Excellence Through:

Improved Flexibility
Ethernet technology greatly expands data transmission boundaries, allowing data to be accessed from anywhere to achieve live monitoring of remote sites and realtime response to emergencies. Ethernet significantly enhances the flexibility and availability of data for SCADA systems as well as their suitability for being integrated with other networking devices, which is why it is a highly cost-effective and efficient technology. Moxa provides a wide array of industrialgrade products, including industrial Ethernet switches, fiber media converters, industrial secure routers, industrial wireless Ethernet products, industrial Ethernet gateways, serial device servers, RTU controllers and remote I/O devices, IP cameras, and industrial computing solutions. A variety of interface solutions such as fiber, copper, SFP, PoE, wireless, and serial, and bandwidth options from 10/100 Mbps to 10 Gbps, are available for your applications.

Added Safety
Safety is a top priority of the oil and gas industry, so on-site and off-site equipment must all be held to the highest standards. Devices must meet many different safety standards to ensure they can resist damage from corrosion and vibration, and to ensure continuous, reliable operation in hazardous environments. Moxas products have passed a variety of certifications specially developed for oil and gas facilities, including UL/cUL C1D2, ATEX Zone 2, IECEx, and DNV/ABS/LR/NK/GL. Apart from environmental approvals, Moxas high performance industrial secure routers enable secure VPN network access and critical device protection from unauthorized remote connections. In addition, Moxas wired and wireless Ethernet products support a number of security standards, including 802.1X, HTTPS, and SSL.

Increased Availability
Unexpected system downtime and failure to respond in real time can cause significant damage to oil and gas facilities, threatening assets and even lives. For this reason, it is highly important to keep systems functional at all times, even during emergency situations. Moxas industrial Ethernet switches and wireless AP/bridge/client products support redundancy features to ensure that communication systems are always available and can respond in real time. With Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain (recovery time < 20 ms), and dual radio and Turbo Roaming for redundancy, Moxa products ensure maximum LAN and wireless LAN network uptime and guarantee millisecond-level recovery. Moxas products also support dual, redundant power inputs, helping ensure system availability.

Application Solutions Midstream: Pump Station and Pipeline Monitoring

Real-Time Monitoring of Oil Pipeline Systems

The role of oil pipelines is to distribute the crude oil from drilling rigs to oil storage tanks and then to refineries. Typically, pipelines span several thousand miles over harsh terrain and require a central SCADA system based on Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) and microwave architecture to measure, monitor, and control the status of field instruments across the entire oil flow. Multiple pumping stations, such as block valve stations and compressor stations, keep the pressure in the pipeline constant. Operators can quickly detect, locate, and prevent or resolve leaks, damages, and breaks by deploying a rugged, extendable fiber-optic Ethernet network. The network must be robust, highly available, and include an integrated remote monitoring and surveillance service for pipeline operation to improve safety and reliability and reduce the total cost of the pipeline.

Success Stories

Real-Time Monitoring, Control, and Management of Assets for Oil Drilling Platforms
Company: ONGC (Oil and Natural Gas Corporation), Ltd. Location: India

The Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) contributes 77% of Indias crude oil and 81% of its natural gas supply. The goal of this project was to centralize asset management for 45 of ONGCs remote oil & gas production platforms. The system includes both offshore and onshore locations, and relies on networked radio transmissions to link on-site monitoring and control instruments with the central, enterprise-scale control server. Moxa supplied the network solutions for the upstream production locations, where industrial-grade durability and heightened safety precautions are crucial requirements. Instruments at the manufacturing sites communicate with Ethernet-capable RTUs via the HART protocol. The signals from the RTUs are forwarded to Moxas EDS-408A Ethernet switches, and then passed to NPort IA5150 serial device servers before being transmitted by radio to the central control facility. Certified as Class I Div. 2 / Zone 2 and DNV approved, Moxas switches and device servers are critical components, guaranteeing safe and reliable site-to-station communications for monitoring and control.

This project involved 500 distributed oil & gas wells situated in the Khurais region of Saudi Arabia. Saudi Aramco needed a network that reliably connects remote RTUs at the wellheads to the SCADA system that controls field instruments. Each field site must link a Moxa VPort 351 video encoder to a CCTV camera, and an MGate MB3170I Modbus gateway to a multiphase flow meter that connects the flow meter to a PLC. The SCADA system is located at the Gas-Oil Separation Process (GOSP) plant, so for video, voice, and data communications, each station is connected to the Gigabit fiber backbone by an EDS-510A Gigabit Ethernet switch. Finally, in the SCADA centers communication room, Moxas modular PT-7828 series managed Layer 3 Ethernet switches were installed to handle data transmissions across different LAN networks.

Modern real-time wireless networking is being used to further automate the oil & gas industry, making it more efficient in both energy usage and operational optimization. This project uses Moxas wireless and cellular solutions to build a reliable remote control and telemetry system that connects oil well pump trucks at the wellheads to a local, mobile control center housed in a van, which itself uses wireless technology to connect to the central control center. Two AWK-3121s are installed on each pump truck, with one configured as an 802.11 access point for on-site monitoring by engineers, and the other configured as a dedicated 802.11 client connected to another AWK-3121 access point located in the van. Finally, the mobile control center in the van uses a PLC and an OnCell 3G cellular IP gateway to maintain wireless cellular communications with the remote control center.

One of the leading oil well solutions companies faced a big challenge when their PROFIBUS interface card was phased out. The PROFIBUS interface card is a critical component, connecting the operator station display to reliable and accurate real-time drilling data such as drilling breaks, flow deviations, and pressure loss to help drillers instantly identify problems, and prevent system downtime. As a result, this company needed to find an easy-to-use and cost-effective solution for their mission-critical oil & gas application. Moxas MGate 5101-PBM-MN Modbus TCP gateway integrates existing PROFIBUS devices into the Modbus TCP-based operator station, while keeping the existing driver settings for remote control. It features a web-based monitoring tool and relay output warning to keep maintenance to a minimum.

Success Stories

A leading pipeline company in Russia deployed a fiber-optic SDH backbone to transmit data streams to a central monitoring and control station across a 1600 kilometer expanse. Along the way, the network integrates a variety of pipeline subsystems that include ventilation, air conditioning, and fire control. Strong redundancy to guarantee continuous high availability was achieved with a Gigabit ring topology, built from more than a thousand Moxa EDS-510A industrial Ethernet switches. Furthermore, each node along the pipeline serves Moxa ioLogik E2210 RTU controllers, which monitor and control local routines while actively responding to unexpected events by notifying the control center with alarms and emergency updates.

Large gas pipelines are highly volatile and span thousands of kilometers, necessitating the installation of secure monitoring and control systems that are strongly protected from cyber attacks. In this project, gas transfer stations along a pipeline use Moxas EDS-508A managed switches to connect gas analyzers and PLCs to a remote SCADA system. To ensure local security and data authenticity, Moxas EDR-G903, a Gigabit industrial router, was used to build highly secure VPN tunnels between the transfer stations and the central SCADA system. As a router with a NAT-capable firewall and VPN client, the EDR-G903 not only shields devices on the internal LAN from unauthorized access, but also maintains strongly secure communications across public networks.

This project involved the optimization of a distributed control system (DCS) used for monitoring and control at a naptha cracking plant in southern Taiwan. To guarantee continuous, 100% network availability, two parallel, independent fiber-optic Ethernet networks were used as the DCS backbone, giving full redundancy to control, monitoring, and sensor devices by connecting every DCS station to both networks. Moxas modular EDS-728 managed Ethernet switches served as the backbone nodes, connecting the HMI/SCADA system to remote stations where data servers and controllers monitor and manage local I/O data. To connect the remote stations to the backbone, unmanaged EDS-308 Ethernet switches were used. Finally, the entire equipment array of the DCS workstations were also duplicated, to provide full across-the-board redundancy, making this Ethernet-based automation network among the most reliable in the world.

An Aramco refinery in Yanbu, Arabia, wanted an Intruder Detection Alarm System (IDAS) and IP CCTV security system for both their field and administrative sites. To meet the demands of video, voice, and data transmission over a network, high-bandwidth Gigabit fiber was used in a redundant ring topology for the backbone, while at field sites Moxas VPort 364 industrial video encoders linked analog cameras to the Ethernet ring, and ioLogik E2242 micro RTU controllers were used to automate intrusion sensors. In this way, the SCADA system and video management system (VMS) were reliably integrated with I/O events and distributed data collectors into a reliable, real-time security and alarm system. With Moxas expertise in the design of rugged industrial products, and key enhancements such as active, intelligent alarms, CGI command communications, and automated deployment utilities, Moxas products provided a one-stop-shop solution.
