Upstream, Midstream & Downstream Solutions
For years you have heard about what the digital revolution can do for oil and gas production and have seen some successes, but now the IIoT provides a missing link that moves the hydrocarbons industries to a new level of connectivity.
In upstream oil and gas production, this new level means extending the life of the wells and operating more efficiently. In upstream processing it means operating more reliably and more efficiently. And in refining and petrochemical operations it means improving reliability and efficiency as well, but it also means staying competitive by finding new flexibility to process a greater variety of crude oils. The ability to switch from gasoline to diesel fuel production quickly, for example, can have significant bottom-line benefits.
Within each industry segment, we help customers identify what we call “value-leaks” and articulate and implement the operations improvements needed to close them.
Dedicated Oil & Gas Industry Solutions
We achieve and sustain these improvements through connectivity, operations and information management solutions tailored to the oil and gas industry:
A wide range of Wonderware solutions help focus limited resources on the ultimate goal of delivering improved production value. These increase effectiveness by eliminating distractions such as alarm storms, manual loop control, and tuning and optimizing those same loops.
Extended Data Access
Display Historian data via Wonderware InTouch or analyze it with Wonderware Historian Client, Wonderware Online InSight, Wonderware Intelligence, Wonderware SmartGlance and Dream Report for Wonderware.
Rich analytics enable informed decision making that optimizes and improves plant operations. Real-time analytics reflect actual operating conditions and include drill down capabilities to uncover root causes and allow “what if” scenarios and workforce collaboration, establishing and enforcing best practices.
Production energy management
Easy-to-use point solutions maximize energy performance and deliver energy savings of up to 7 percent. These solutions include real-time business intelligence, asset performance management and production optimization. Schneider Electric can also design and implement holistic solutions that establish an energy culture that can maximize and accelerate energy performance for increased savings of up to 15 percent.
Asset Performance Management
Technology, enabled by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), is empowering a shift to a holistic and operations-centric view, where proactive and predictive maintenance (PdM) enables front line personnel to act before costly failures occur.
