14 March 2013
When Canadian Natural Resources (CNRL) needed a better way to manage the process control and monitoring of its 300 gathering stations, 800 compressor stations, and 150 gas processing facilities it under- took a process to replace existing systems with PcVue Solutions’ SCADA and FrontVue solutions.
CNRL has numerous independent automation systems of various brands and wanted to achieve consistency by integrating as many of these as possible on PcVue. In addition, CNRL wanted to leverage PcVue’s ability to support multi-station architectures for networking and currently runs Modbus Roc, Roc Talk, and BSAP.
The replacement process started when CNRL began migration of its FactoryLink SCADA to PcVue using the Smart Generator. This PcVue tool can easily and automatically convert a very high proportion of the existing applications to PcVue, while ensuring maximum compatibility and security.
