BP Canada Energy has been awarded HART Plant of the Year by the HART Communication Foundation for its NGL operation plant in Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. The award is given annually to recognize people, companies, and plant sites that are using HART technology in real-time applications to improve operations, lower costs, and increase availability. The BP plant makes propane, butane, natural gas liquid (NGL) condensate, and ethane with carbon dioxide removed. On average, 1.5 million cum of propane and large volumes of the other products leave the plant each year. According to HCF, BP engineers have used the digital process variable output of their installed HART-enabled temperature and pressure transmitters for more than a decade to improve the accuracy of the plant’s liquid pipeline custody-transfer measurements.
