The company said the software supplements the basic pipeline management system with specific gas and liquid applications, which enable pipeline operators to manage delivery contracts and associated logistics in a time- and energy-efficient manner.

Using a SCADA platform to cover monitoring, alarming, trending, and reporting, the EPMS handles metering; batch scheduling and tracking; leak detection; and energy management within the same unified user environment.

“The EPMS will significantly reduce the amount of effort required to implement and commission high quality pipeline management applications while guaranteeing easy upgradability, protecting investments across multiple SCADA platform versions,” said Shuji Mori, Yokogawa vice president and head of Yokogawa Electric International.

The company said the software will primarily target gas and liquids transmission pipelines and grids, as well as upstream and midstream oil and gas production infrastructure.

Founded in 1915, the US$3.5bn Yokogawa Corporation is active in the industrial automation and control (IA), test and measurement, and aviation sectors.
