Cheniere LNG, Inc., a unit of Cheniere Energy, has selected Invensys Process Systems to implement the Terminal Operations Management System (TOMS) for the company's Sabine Pass LNG receiving terminal being built in Cameron Parish, Louisiana.

The Invensys implementation for Cheniere's TOMS project will employ a system architecture that integrates Invensys and third-party software solutions to support the supervision and management of the Sabine Pass LNG receiving terminal, with scalability to accommodate additional terminals. Invensys will provide consulting, software products, and a range of integration, implementation, testing, and training services that will leverage te company's expertise and experience in the global LNG industry.

Cheniere is undertaking the TOMS project for its Sabine Pass LNG terminal to establish industry-leading best practices for safety, customer service, operational efficiency, security, and compliance with regulatory, statutory, commercial, and financial reporting requirements.

The TOMS system will automate and integrate business processes in Customer Services, Production Operations, and Compliance Management. More than 20 critical software systems from Invensys and third parties will be integrated within the TOMS and with Cheniere's enterprise-level business systems. The software systems range from Ship Tracking and Terminal Operations Planning to Terminal Performance Management and Security Monitoring.

The TOMS implementation will be founded on: a unified architecture; universal data exchange with enterprise systems; use of standardized interfaces; data storage and retrieval; modular architecture, and web-based solutions.
