About the Client

The GNL Mejillones Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Plant was established by GDF SUEZ and the Chilean State Copper Company CODELCO in Northern Chile in 2010. The plan is a 750-Million US Dollars investment to secure natural gas supply for the mining industry.

Project Objective

Post-earthquake assessment of the GNL Mejillones Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Plant upon the occurrence of an earthquake to ensure safe operations.

Project Achievement

Implementation of the CONDOR Seismic Monitoring System solution, which collects data from two free-field seismic stations and determines, in real-time, whether the earthquake’s impacts on the plant have or have not exceeded its Operating Basis Earthquake (OBE) design requirements.

Project Insights

Monitoring

Implemented CONDOR system solution to monitor seismic activity in real-time with automatic OBE analysis, alarm and reporting.

Safe Operations

Increased Operators confidence on safe operations and emergency response procedures.

Operational Continuity

Avoided uncertainties in decision making process and continuing of operations.

Reliability

Provided continued serviceability since start-up in 2010 and through major earthquakes that have struck Chile.
