From smart fields to distribution, InduSoft has you covered.
According to recent market reports, world crude oil production topped 75 million barrels per day in 2014, and the growth of US oil production is poised to increase by and additional 1.1 million to become the largest oil producer worldwide. Global demand for oil is also projected to rise to 99.7 million barrels a day, according to reports from the IEA. The demand for natural gas is predicted to grow at an even higher rate than oil, with demand expected to reach 50 Bcf/d by 2025.
However, the costs of oil production are rising much faster than oil prices, which have remained stagnant since 2011. With competition from renewables and coal, the oil and gas industry is working to meet demand and keep prices in scale with costs by embracing the market trends calling for better efficiency, safety, and production capability.
Automated oil and gas production is no longer theoretical. Intelligent fields and “smart” equipment are in high demand. Better automation can improve the safety of people, the environment, equipment and data. Automation also improves reporting capabilities for adherence to government and environmental regulatory agencies. Most importantly, automated oil and gas production allows companies to meet production demands and reduce “Time to first oil” by ensuring that operations are optimized and efficient.
Here are just a few of the ways InduSoft Web Studio can help improve automation for the oil and gas industry:
Lower Total Cost of Ownership
Simplicity of developing applications with InduSoft has maximized engineering productivity which is usually elusive in the development of Oil & Gas SCADA applications. With InduSoft Web Studio Solution, engineers can build their own objects and I/O databases. Once they are configured, objects can be reused throughout the entire system for any other similar device. This saves a tremendous amount of time when upgrading or developing similar applications, because engineers can reuse the template that contains all the information necessary for control, such as scripts, alarms and communication methods. This technique also greatly improves system reliability because the templates are already field proven.
InduSoft Web Studio is a key necessity for data collection and real-time operations management. From wellhead to corporate office, InduSoft Web Studio software provides accuracy and reliability for drilling of oil and gas. InduSoft’s CEView grants freedom to work wireless, allowing for added mobility and a better use of your time. A custom screen design with large buttons for gloved hands is just one of the many features InduSoft Web Studio offers. This exclusive software program monitors safety and brings you the data you need when you need it!
A standard medium to large-size oil refinery houses thousands of pumps and compressors that move, store, and process oil and gases, making it essential for these machines to be in utmost operating condition. InduSoft Web Studio provides continuous vibration monitoring to prevent early removal of these components from service before a scheduled maintenance date, which can be very costly in terms of loss of production. For means of monitoring temperatures, pressures and flow rates that can suddenly change, InduSoft Web Studio and CEView bring you a solution that is not only user-friendly and scalable, but also cost efficient.
With a good safety system in place, you can reduce safety incidents by 50%. Allowing InduSoft Web Studio CEView to monitor for leaks and detect the location of the leak, you are not only reducing safety, but also reducing the cost of unnecessary construction, management, and maintenance. InduSoft Web Studio has large numbers of I/O points that are capable of networking many PCs together via TCP/IP connections, bringing you faster, precise communication, and reliable warning signs concerning pipeline leaks.
