This paper presents the design and implementation of Transpetro’s national master station project for oil and natural gas. The national master stations allow the centralized operation of Transpetro’s entire liquid and natural gas pipeline grid from their new headquarters in Rio de Janeiro. The implementation strategy includes transferring operations of the existing regional master stations — four for oil and two for gas — to the national master. Two of the regional masters are maintained as backups for the oil and gas national master stations, respectively. The project foresees the total deactivation of the existing regional master stations as their operations are migrated to the national master. The national master stations complement Transpetro’s integrated oil and gas SCADA systems.
