Oil and Gas Solutions

Extreme Conditions Require Reliable and Secure Communications

Reliable and secure industrial communications can facilitate the reduction of capital and operational expenditures (CAPEX and OPEX), while also fulfilling HSSE (Health, Safety, Security, and Environment) requirements in the oil and gas industry. The conditions that oil and gas operations face every day are extremely demanding, including challenges such as explosive atmospheres, high vibration and shock, electromagnetic interference, extreme operating temperatures and ambient conditions, and often in remote locations with limited communication infrastructure. 

Madison products and systems are purpose-built to withstand harsh conditions addressing the unique and evolving challenges of oil and gas production.

Upstream Communication Networks

The oil and gas industry is moving towards a complete digital oilfield to increase production and reduce downtime. 

As oil and gas fields often span hundreds or even thousands of acres across remote areas, wireless networks can improve 
communication efficiency. Many large oil and gas companies are adopting wireless network solutions to transmit and collect 
mission-critical data for all of their communication needs. 

Reliable, high capacity wireless networks can provide the oil and gas industry with: 

  • Reduced costs and implementation time
  • ncreased system flexibility and scalability
  • Real-time production monitoring and data aggregation

> Solution Highlights

  • Sunlight-readable, IP66-rated panel computers.
  • Turbo ring and turbo chain network redundancy technologies deliver integrated Ethernet rings that recover in 20 ms or less.
  • Industrial Ethernet gateways for a wide variety of industry-standard protocols and active OPC Server, for seamlessly integrating remote I/O into the SCADA.

Midstream Communication Networks

The role of oil pipelines is to distribute the crude oil from drilling rigs to oil storage tanks and then on to refineries. 

Typically, pipelines span several thousand acres over harsh terrain and require a central SCADA system based on Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) and microwave architecture to measure, monitor, and control the status of field instruments across the entire oil flow. Multiple pumping stations, such as block valve stations and compressor stations, keep the pressure in the pipeline constant. 

Operators can quickly detect, locate, and prevent or resolve leaks, damages, and breaks by deploying a rugged, extendable fiber-optic ethernet network.

 

> Solution Highlights

  • Highly integrated network solutions, including ethernet switches, wireless LAN and WAN products, ethernet gateways, IP cameras, RTU controllers, embedded computers, and network management software.

Downstream Communication Networks

Oil refineries are large-scale plants that process large quantities of crude oil and feature a complicated production process with a great number of intelligent equipment devices. 

Because of the high capacity, many of the units operate continuously for long periods of time. The Distributed Control System (DCS) is the main control system, and is connected to the controller elements by ethernet networks to manage and monitor the plant’s output and performance.

Since non-stop 24/7 operation is crucial to the entire process, the ethernet network system must have reliable redundancy to achieve high data availability and optimal productivity.
