Control Room

All the processes of the GNL Quintero Terminal are operated and controlled from Control Room, including ship reception, LNG unloading to the jetty, transportation to the storage tanks, regasification and injection of the natural gas into the pipeline, as well as the loading of LNG tanker trucks.

The Control Room operates a latest generation Distributed Control System (DCS), which automatically links together the operation, control and safety equipment for all the processes carried out at the Terminal.

The Process Control System (PCS) provides the interface between plant equipment and the operator. If a valve needs to be opened or closed, or a piece of equipment turned on or off, or regulated, the GNL Quintero operator does it from a console in the Control Room.

Screens show on-line operational information for each area of the Terminal (Quintero (ship, jetty, tanks, vaporizers, truck loading facility, meteorological station, etc.), allowing the most important variables to be monitored in real time to ensure correct operation. There is also an audio-visual monitoring system to support the safety and operational systems.

The Terminal's internal and external communications systems are also centralised in the Control Room.
