HPI Receives Contract to Complete LNG Controls Upgrade

HOUSTON (July 20, 2017) – HPI announced today that it has been selected to complete a second Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) controls upgrade for a Des Moines, Iowa-based energy company.

The project will enable the client to modernize their obsolete control system, which will greatly improve their system automation, diagnostics, functionality and ease of operation. The project will also establish a common control system across each of their LNG Plants to further improve plant control.

The first phase of the project began this past May, and is estimated to be completed by September 2017. The second phase of the project is on schedule to be completed in December 2017.
