Corporate Process Automation Client Story

“This is what we agreed to do. Make sure we are compliant.”

“The Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), defined in Article 12 of the (Kyoto) Protocol, allows a country with an emission-reduction or emission-limiting commitment, to implement an emission-reduction project.

Such projects can earn saleable certified emission reduction (CER) credits, each equivalent to one ton (ne) of CO2, which can be counted towards meeting Kyoto targets.” States the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Valerus, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kentz, and Member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, is a worldwide leader in integrated oil and gas handling and processing. Valerus asked GlobaLogix to design, build, program, and commission a control system for a gas production facility in Mexico. This plant was to process crude that was naturally high in Carbon and ‘sour’ (high in H2S). They wanted this crude cleaned to a significant level – enough to acquire CER credits.

The control systems were going to be highly scrutinized, and required total accuracy. Concerned nations were watching the development of this high-profile project. This project was not your ordinary control system installation. It was unique and on a global scale. Valerus gave us their voluminous production plans detailed in a contract and said, “This is what we are signing. Make sure we are in compliance.” We took the challenge and interrupted policies into highly-integrated measurements and control systems. The project was finished and commissioned in 2012.

What About Ethics?

Ethics are a set of standards which define correct or desired behavior. That’s an easy definition to state but in practice a hard concept to embrace.  The word is worn like the proverbial cheap suit and bandied about by those whose behavior makes most of us shudder.  Hard to define, ethical behavior is something most[…..]
