The Karratha Gas Plant (KGP) was constructed in the early 1980s, and with a program of continued expansion from domestic gas supply to LPG and LNG production it has become one of the largest gas processing facilities in Australia. A plant life extension programme has been initiated for the facility to extend the plant life for more than 20+ years. There are a number of Control and Safety Systems requiring upgrading to manage equipment obsolescence risk.
The plant Triconex Safety System and GE Turbine control systems are nearing end of product life support and require to be upgraded to the latest maintainable solution. I&E Systems has been engaged to provide front end engineering, detailed design engineering and site implementation support for the upgrade of Safety and Turbine Control systems. The project implementation of over 40 systems is aligned to major shutdown opportunities occurring over the next 5 years.
