Pinnacle Midstream has entered into an agreement with Bedrock Automation to use the Bedrock™ control system as the automation platform for its crude oil receipt and delivery points.
Under the terms of the agreement, Bedrock™ system will coordinate flow of product from Pinnacle Midstream’s partners, through the company’s processing facilities and onto refiners and shippers.
“We are expanding to the meet the growing need for midstream services and need a secure way to centralize control of flow amongst our facilities,” said Mike Hillerman, VP of Engineering and Operations for Pinnacle Midstream. “The Bedrock system provides an economical solution in a small, easy-to-implement system that can coordinate edge control today, while also scaling easily and economically to the full DCS functionality we expect to need in the future. We also liked the rugged Bedrock housing, which will resist the dust that gets into everything around here.”
