Emergency Shut Down (ESD) systems are designed to improve the situation and minimize damages that may be incurred during flooding, hydrocarbon escape, and other hazardous outbreaks. They also allow actuators in an oilfield system to continue working after a pressure drop or a power failure.
Oilfields need to have ESD systems that are capable of isolating hazards and all sources of flammable gases/liquids and ignition, as well as shutting the system down to protect it. When an emergency situation occurs, the system gives off visual and audible signals that indicate its activation.
In the best case situation, ESD systems with two remote control stations must be used for well test operations. They work better in generating emergency shutdown signals because they have fail-safe valves. The remote stations are typically located in areas where there are no pressurized equipment placed.
ESD system gives a business owner peace of mind. It ensures that no major damage will be incurred during emergency situations, thus protecting assets and investments.
