Honeywell tapped to help meet Vietnam's surging energy demand.

Honeywell has been hired by PetroVietnam Technical Services Corp. (PTSC) and the Bien Dong Petroleum Operating Company (BDPOC) to supply an integrated process control system for their new central processing platform being built in Vung Tan, Vietnam. When fully operational by the end of 2012, the platform is expected to contribute significantly to meet Vietnam's increased gas demands by providing 2 Bcm of gasoline each year and up to 20,000 barrels of condensate daily. BDPOC is a subsidiary of state-run Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (PetroVietnam).

Honeywell Process Solutions will implement its Experion[R] Process Knowledge System with C300 Controller and Foundation Fieldbus capabilities to fully automate the site. Safety Manager will also be installed to improve process-safeguarding protocols, such as emergency shutdowns, fire and gas monitoring, and critical application control. By increasing efficiency and reducing downtime, the platform should be able to reach its optimal production volumes.
