Ormen Lange - HIPPS

Application: High Integrity Pressure Protection System (HIPPS)
Installation Area: Nyhamna, Norway
Client: Mokveld Valves BVB

SELLA CONTROLS supplied 4 High Integrity Pressure Protection Systems (HIPPS) on the Ormen Lange Project, working with Mokveld Valves in the Netherlands. The turnkey package consisted of the supply of the logic solver and HIPPS valves for incorporation onto the gas receiving facility for the Ormen Lange Field which is located at Nyhamna on the Western coast of Norway.

When the untreated well stream arrives at Nyhamna, it is directed to a reception unit known as a “slug catcher”. Here liquids will be stopped from progressing further and damaging the process plant. It is on these slug catchers that the SELLA CONTROLS HIPPS systems, comprising of solid state technology, designed and built to IEC61508 SIL3, will reside.

Once the gas has been processed and compressed for export, it is transported by the world’s longest subsea export pipeline approximately 1200 kilometres from Nyhamna to the new landfall pipeline at Easington in the UK. Here, incoming gas is cleaned, measured and adjusted to meet pressure and temperature conditions required for further transport through the through the UK's distribution Network.
