safe and efficient pipeline operations

The Chevron Pipe Line Control Center is Chevron’s center of excellence for pipeline remote operations, field control systems, and commodity measurement. Using real-time data via a SCADA system (supervisory control and data acquisition), controllers provide around-the-clock remote monitoring and control of pipeline transportation operations. The control center’s mission is to safely and reliably move crude oil, refined petroleum products, liquefied petroleum gas, natural gas, and petrochemicals in support of Chevron’s Upstream and Downstream operations, as well as for third parties. New technological developments in thermal imaging cameras and the application of real-time transient models to existing pipeline systems have broadened leak detection capabilities. Intense training and strong operational discipline ensures that the control center delivers on its responsibility to quickly mitigate any abnormal operating condition and support safe and reliable pipeline operations.
