High Integrity Pressure Protection System (HIPPS)
Division:IMI Critical Engineering
As demand continues for oil & gas, high exploration costs for new fields, better utilisation of older, more difficult fields, which contain significant levels of H2S (sour gas) is increasing. Sour gas is extremely dangerous and it is vital that field owners and operators ensure the safety of the field and the equipment from over pressure that could lead to controlled releasing of sour gas, for example gas to flare. As a result, investment in HIPPS is becoming a key application. Leveraging a long history of experience, IMI CCI in Italy designs control and hardware for the system.
