Spectra pipeline goes live with CygNet as primary SCADA

Distributed, ‘network-centric’ SCADA system to connect 5,600 km pipeline and 5 process plants.

Spectra Energy, which was spun out of Duke Energy’s gas businesses earlier this year, has just gone live with a state-of-the-art SCADA system from CygNet Software of San Luis Obispo, CA. The deployment is to be the primary SCADA system for Spectra’s Western Canada transmission and processing system.

3,000 km

Spectra’s integrated gathering, processing, and transportation system stretches from Fort Nelson, in northeast British Columbia, to the British Columbia/U.S. border at Huntington/Sumas. The system includes 3,000 kilometers of gathering lines connecting some of the most active areas of exploration and production activity in western Canada, 2,600 kilometers of transmission pipeline and five world scale natural gas processing facilities with a capacity of more than 1.8 billion cu. Ft./day. CygNet’s SCADA products and application suite are tailored to the production and pipeline business. The company claims to be the only ‘fully distributed network centric SCADA system’ offering ‘guaranteed access to real-time data anytime, anywhere.’
