Centrica Storage has contracted Servelec Controls to help prepare the Easington Terminal on England’s Lincolnshire coast to process gas from the Premier/Dana Petroleum-owned Tolmount field in the UK southern North Sea.
Tolmount, due to come onstream late in 2020, is expected to extend the site’s lifespan by 10-15 years, Servelec said.
The gas will be exported to Easington Terminal through a new subsea pipeline. Associated modifications at the site include an upgrade and overhaul of the existing functional safety systems.
Servelec was also responsible for installing the existing emergency shutdown and fire and gas systems at the terminal. Both need to be expanded and adapted to alter their functionality, maximize efficiencies and minimize risk, the company added.
The systems integrator is also providing real-time information system services to Premier for the Tolmount project.
