Oil and Gas

For over 45 years, SELLA CONTROLS has offered a peerless service to our clients and end users in the Oil and Gas Industry.

At the sharp end of delivering our energy needs, there is a need for the highest levels of functional safety with meticulously measured process control. Our expertise encompasses a wide range of engineering disciplines, and provides bespoke solutions up to and including Safety Integrity Level (SIL3). With considerable experience in the supply of SCADA and Process Control Systems, Shutdown Systems, including ESD, PSD and HIPPS, Burner Management and Fire and Gas Systems, we have the capability to deliver smaller control systems and more complex, distributed, integrated systems, which incorporate both safety and control applications.

In 2001 SELLA CONTROLS was the first company to be awarded the CASS certificate for functional safety management, in compliance with the international safety standard IEC 61508. This underlines our ongoing commitment to demonstrating the standard’s best practice, underpinned by SELLA CONTROLS’ principles of integrity, transparency and consistency. The benefit to our clients is that we are in the best position to deliver cost-effective and compliant safety system solutions.
