Having access to reliable, real-time tank inventory data is vital to accurate fuel inventory management. Coggins International has a long history of integrating ATG systems, dating back to the 1970s and our first automation project – a bulk storage terminal. Today, as a distributor of Rosemount™ Tank Gauging (RTG) products and services, we take automatic tank gauging and inventory management to a whole new level, delivering the most accurate system for custody transfer, process and inventory control. Based on industry standards and an open systems architecture, an RTG solution combines tank level, temperature, water-interface and pressure (density) measurement technology with wired and wireless communication devices, allowing tank replenishment without risk of overflow.
The integration of our FuelsAutomation tank management software with Rosemount’s maintenance-free radar gauging system is unmatched in the Oil & Gas Industry, delivering the ultimate in robustness, reliability, safety and accuracy. Our solutions assure efficient operations, reduces risk and minimizes measurement uncertainty with the scalable and open architecture of the Rosemount Tank Gauging System. With certified custody transfer accuracy, based on innovative radar technology the system complies with the latest overfill prevention standards such as API 2350. It also offers an increase in safety with IEC 61508 certified SIL 2 and SIL 3 capable devices, and unique 2-in-1 technology, to help simplify automation and expansion with RTG wireless solutions. Gauge emulation allows for easily replacement of old mechanical gauges and outdated tank gauging technologies from other vendors (Varec, GSI, L&J, Enraf).
Coggins International provides turnkey Electronic Point-of-Sale (EPoS) Solutions for Aviation and Defense Fuel Management applications—combining the best-in-class technologies with proven expertise. We employ Open Architecture POS technology standards, which allows ease-of change from one manufacturer’s device, or system, to another, and to keep pace with rapid advancements in technology. An ‘open architecture’ provides the added benefit of integrating existing systems during the transition to a next-generation technology.

When it comes to Industrial Automation, we have an unrivaled history of providing 'turnkey' automated Fuels Management Systems (FMS) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) Systems to major oil companies, airlines, Department of Defense (DoD) & DLA Energy, Department of Energy (DOE) and U.S. allies, dating back to the mid-1970s. Of these, Defense and Military applications are the most challenging for automating fuel logistics and supply chains, where demand can change at a moment’s notice. The Coggins International team has decades of experience designing, implementing, deploying and supporting FMS and SCADA systems around the world—often in challenging and sometimes dangerous environments.
Our SCADA expertise can be traced back to 1978 when Keith Coggins started Coggins Systems, Inc. in response to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) formation of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR)—the largest stockpile of government-owned emergency crude oil in the world. This was during the 1970s Energy Crisis that was sweeping the globe. DOE reached out to Keith Coggins – based his reputation for cutting-edge innovations in technology – to develop and install an advanced Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) System on a fast track, turnkey basis for all of its SPR facilities along the Gulf Coast of Louisiana and Texas. The huge success of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve’s fast-track automation program catapulted Coggins Systems into the Oil & Gas Industry as a market leader.
