Continua™ Liquid Solutions

In a world of finite natural resources and exponentially increasing energy demands, pipeline companies are facing increasing obligations to optimize the operation and management of their pipeline and storage systems, and comply with safety and environmental regulations, all while these systems continue to grow significantly in both scale and complexity.

Despite increasingly stringent demands and challenges being placed on the operation of liquid transportation pipelines and storage, traditional industry automation products are predominantly based upon inflexible and low-performance platforms, often utilizing technology originally designed for DCS and low-tier control systems.

To meet the challenges facing liquid pipeline operators and liquid storage operators today, OSI has developed the Continua™ Liquid Solutions (CLS) offering: a comprehensive suite of monitoring, control and management software applications specifically intended for the supervisory control and analysis of the operations and performance of modern liquid gathering and transmission pipelines, and storage facilities.

Continua™ Liquid Solutions (CLS) provides an unprecedented number of applications for the liquid industry, both from an offline and operational point of view. At the same time, Continua™ Liquid Solutions (CLS) provides several applications for both safety and reliability that does not require a model. Continua™ Liquid Solutions (CLS) uniqueness is due to its simplicity and modular design, which make it user friendly, scalable, easy to maintain, and safe.

  • CLSData — used for data- and meter-based applications like inventory management
  • CLSModel — used for model-based applications like batch tracking
  • CLSSafety — used for safety-based applications like leak detection
  • CGSPredictive — used for predicting how future operations might change based on current operations

Continua™ Liquid Solutions (CLS) supports a full suite of liquid monitoring, control and management of liquid pipeline and liquid storage applications, covering both operational and offline functionalities, including, but not limited to:

  • Pipeline topology and connectivity analysis/coloring
  • Pipeline pressure and flow profiles
  • Standardized liquid protocols
  • API compliant standardized calculations
  • Real-time monitoring of pipeline flow, pressure, temperature, and density
  • Pipeline and storage supervisory control, including long- distance liquid pipelines
  • Operator training and pipeline simulation
  • DRA inventory and Linefill management
  • Alarm and Control Room Management tools
  • Storage and terminal management
  • Batch, Anomaly and Commercial tracking
  • Safety related applications to prevent incidents
  • Volume/Mass balance monitor and other leak detection methodologies
  • Validation and meter verification

Business related applications Continua™ Liquid Solutions (CLS) is built atop OSI's industry-leading monarch™ operational technology (OT) platform. Originally designed for critical electrical network operations with highly rigid performance, capacity, throughput, and cyber-security requirements, monarch serves as an ideal platform for both small- and large-scale liquid pipeline and processing automation projects.

Continua™ Liquid Solutions (CLS) is a flexible, expandable, and adaptable monitoring, control and management of liquid pipelines and storage software offering, specifically intended for both large and small crude and refined products pipeline systems.

Utilizing a growing selection of open interfaces, Continua™ Liquid Solutions (CLS) is capable of seamlessly communicating with many third-party products, including remote terminal units (RTUs), programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and various 3rd party pipeline software products.
