Creating a Smart Field with 114 Sites in Just Eight Months
Scalable SCADA and MQTT Were Crucial to Achieving Ambitious Goals
NGL Energy Partners is a diversified midstream oil & gas company that provides multiple services to producers and end users, including transportation, storage, blending, and marketing of crude oil. To improve its operational efficiency and revenue-generating capabilities, NGL embarked on an ambitious project that created a new supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system for its saltwater disposal facilities. The new system connects assets in several states from field to enterprise and provides communication from site to site. The result is a smart field that includes 114 water treatment and disposal facilities, 178 pipeline tie-ins, 31 boosters, and around 1.25 million tags.
