Upstream: Onshore Production
Secure and Efficient Networking Solutions for Oil Wellhead Automation

Intelligent oil wellhead automation can be achieved with a reliable and cost-effective automated Ethernet-based control and monitoring system that supervise operations from the wellheads and Gas Oil Separation Plant (GOSP) in a SCADA-based control center. This system combines video monitoring, data acquisition, and transmission, and requires a high-bandwidth backbone with non-stop redundant reliability and real-time performance. Since onshore operations are characterized by environmental hazards such as corrosion, temperature extremes, and risk of explosions, the network equipment must be able to withstand these hazards and comply with ATEX standards.

Network Requirements   Moxa Solutions
  • A reliable, well-functioned monitor and control network system based on industrial Ethernet is required to remotely manage and immediately access data from wellhead RTUs at the SCADA host, reducing the number of in-person maintenance trips.
  • Backbone network with high bandwidth Gigabit performance for video, voice, and data transmission, with fast fault recovery in case the network goes down.
  • A secure network that protects the monitoring system and critical oil wellhead assets from malicious attack.
  • A software solution that manages a large-scale wellhead network system for easy network troubleshooting and maximum system uptime.
  • Fiber optic cable for secure and long-distance transmission to the field monitoring site to deliver superior EMI/noise immunity and high availability.
  • ATEX and UL ratings to certify explosion-proofing, dustproofing, weatherproofing, and extreme operating temperature range to ensure safety and reliability in hazardous conditions.
  • Moxa's high-performance Layer 3 switches form reliable Gigabit fiber redundant rings across the GOSP LAN network and support additional Gigabit uplinks that provide transparent information from wellheads to the SCADA control center, enabling real-time video, voice, and data transmission.
  • Turbo Ring and Turbo Chain self-healing technology (recovery time < 20 ms) with highly flexible and cost-efficient deployment for multiple rings deliver the highest level of network availability and hassle-free expansion.
  • Moxa offers a variety of remote monitoring, maintenance, and data acquisition solutions for maximum customer flexibility, including industrial-grade IP surveillance solutions, integrated multi-service gateway for efficient communication interoperability, industrial serial device server, high-grade embedded computer, and industrial wireless Ethernet product for mobile access of onsite maintenance.
  • Multiple network management software and OPC-enabled solutions allow engineers to stay in control of the Ethernet networks with easy and seamless integration with SCADA/HMI systems.
  • Gigabit secure router to form a trusted industrial network with the highest levels of protection.
  • In addition to Ul/cUL Class I, Division 2, and ATEX Zone 2 certifications, rugged features for greater system reliability include dual redundant power, and -40 to 75˚C operating range.
