Wellhead Control Panels
Wellhead control panel is key equipment in oil & gas industry to protect oilﬁeld facilities and environment from occurring wellhead ﬁre and emergency incidents, which is one of main control systems to ensure oilﬁeld oil production and transportation to be safely operation according to international standards and national regulation.
WHCPs are also known as Shutdown Panels (SDP), Emergency Shutdown Systems (ESD) or Hydraulic Safety Shutdown System (HSSS). These are failsafe shutdown systems which have pneumatic/hydraulic/electric components; WHCPs can also be integrated with PLC/ RTU/ SCADA. WHCPs are standalone control systems as well as an interface between the plant control and the wellhead safety system. WHCPs are used for monitoring, controlling (Remote/Local) and safe shutdown of Subsurface Controlled Safety Valves (SCSSV), Surface Safety Valves (SSV), and other wellhead safety valves (Choke, ESD, HIPPS) in oil & gas production ﬁelds to ensure safe operation of unattended wells/platforms.
Autocontrol Process Instrumentation (API) design, engineering, builds, and supplies control panels for wellhead control applications. We expertise covers three major types of panels:
• Electro-Hydraulic Control
• Electro-Pneumatic Control
• Hydraulic Control
