Hydrocarbon accounting system

Paul Boughton

EnergySys Limited has been awarded a contract for the supply of the Hydrocarbon Accounting System for the South Caucasus Pipeline (SCP) by the South Caucasus Pipeline Company Limited, operated jointly by BP and Statoil as part of the Shah Deniz gas and condensate development project.

The system provides services for the Shah Deniz field but the majority of the functionality services the South Caucasus Pipeline Company (SCPC) Limited which transports the gas to markets in Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey.

SCPC is a joint venture company whose shareholders include: BP, Statoil, SOCAR, LUKOIL, NICO, Total, and TPAO.

The system will support the technical operation of the pipeline, undertaken by BP, and will provide Statoil and the Azerbaijan Gas Supply Company (AGSC) Limited, who manage the gas sales, with all of the technical information they require for commercial operations. The interface between these two systems will be fully automated.

The contract, with a value in excess of half a million pounds, will assure the delivery of one of the most advanced hydrocarbon management systems in the world, and builds on a track record of successful deployments of the GAMMA framework from EnergySys.

The complexity of commercial arrangements surrounding major processing and transportation facilities for oil and gas is such that sophisticated tools are required to ensure fair and equitable treatment of all participants.

GAMMA, the flagship product from EnergySys, is an advanced enterprise Java and XML framework from EnergySys, and is used as the basis for the development.

GAMMA uses a server-side spreadsheet engine to encode all business rules.
