Hitachi aims to provide a one-stop-shop to oil & gas clients supplying products and solutions to meet client's needs across the entire value chain, from upstream through to downstream.

Features of our Solution for Oil and Gas Business

  1. Decreasing environmental footprint and maximising energy efficiency by utilising core technologies of the Hitachi Group.
  2. Decreasing Capex and Opex and reducing lead time system simplification and modularisation.

Figure: Features of solutions for oil and gas business

Upstream (Gas field)

CSG*1 associated water treatment system


  • Flexible operation with IT system
  • High efficient operation with intelligent control system
  • Eco friendly system (minimizing industrial wastes of mixed salt, ZLD)

System configuration

CSG: Coal Seam Gas
RO: Reverse Osmosis
ZLD: Zero Liquid Discharge

Midstream (Pipeline)

IT system (System-wide on-line network for informational control and Autonomous control system)


  • Remote monitoring and control for widely scattered facilities
  • Regular condition monitoring for pipeline (pressure, flow, temperature and so on) : ①
  • Failure detection for pipeline / facilities at earlier stage by unifying satellite photographs and operation data
  • Management of operation and maintenance by mobile terminal utilizing four dimensional GIS*4 : ②

Case Study

FEED*1 for LNG Plant

LNG Plant

Plant location:
Newcastle, Australia

Hitachi performed the FEED of the LNG plant with Toyo Engineering Corporation.

FEED: Front End Engineering Design


Shipboard plant

Plant location:
Offshore of Brazil

Our scope of work:
Supplying RO desalination system unit and process compressor which are capable of being operated on board.

The RO unit desalinates sea water. Desalinated water is used for make-up water.

The process compressor pressurises cure oil for gas separation.
