ROCKVILLE, Md., Dec. 9, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Telvent (Nasdaq:TLVT), the leading real-time IT solutions and information provider for a sustainable world, announced that it has signed a new turnkey contract with Mexican state energy company Mexican Petroleum (Pemex) to provide a centralized control solution for automated product handling at all Pemex oil storage terminals. The Telvent solution will optimize the accuracy of product data and support agile business management for the third largest oil producer in the world.

Pemex has realized successful pipeline control based on Telvent's OASyS supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system and will extend its reliance on the advanced Telvent technology to manage the product receiving and storage facilities in the Mexican National Storage and Distribution Terminal Network (Red Nacional de Terminales de Almacenamiento y Reparto de Mexico).

The Telvent automation systems will centralize product loading, unloading and delivery operations. The advanced application software will collect product volumes and balances and make this data available in real-time to Pemex enterprise applications, improving the accuracy and efficiency of the related business processes. The system also includes fire prevention support for the safety of personnel, the community, and the environment.

Initially, seven terminals will be modernized with the Telvent SCADA, with automation of 77 terminals expected during this project. Yet, because the Telvent control system is scalable, it will easily accommodate terminal network modifications and further expansion, providing Pemex a long-term control solution.

Telvent's CEO, Ignacio Gonzalez, emphasized the significance of this new contract, "We're very proud of our close relationship with Pemex, as its state-of-the-art technology provider, and of being able to support its efficient hydrocarbon storage and distribution operations. This project will undoubtedly reinforce the quality of Petroleos Mexicanos operations."

Telvent has been operating in the Mexican market since 1990, developing control, data, management, and telecommunication system activities in the energy, environment, and transportation sectors. It is a technology leader in the country's gas and oil industry, providing hydrocarbon management solutions; and managing projects in exploration, production, transportation, distribution, and storage.
