Improving Safety by Digitizing Field Workflows

August 11, 2022
Honeywell
Deskless workers play a significant role in supporting and maintaining distributed upstream operations. Many field operators record inspection rounds and maintenance activities using pen and paper, and then manually update that data to a computer when they return to the office. This tedious, manual approach is error prone, and aggregation of data is a challenge, slowing the ability to detect technical issues early to prevent equipment downtime and unsafe situations. It makes compliance with growing regulations more difficult, and it impacts employee productivity and safety in the field. Utilization of digital tools transforms the deskless worker by providing access to real-time information where it’s needed to perform the prescribed tasks competently, efficiently, and safely. Standardized digital processes and access to remote experts help to increase process efficiency and minimize errors, and enable smart, data-driven decisions to enhance worker performance and safety. A case study will be presented to demonstrate digitized workflows in an upstream application. Learn how: -Automating best practices can ensure consistency and compliance -Mobile applications and on-demand information help improve efficiency and safety -Implementation options allow for choice between SaaS, on-premises, and hybrid deployment -Digitized workflows can ensure that safety is the number one priority

The Drive to Net Zero: The Key Role of Digital Technology in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)

July 26, 2022
AspenTech
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) will be an essential pathway as industries move to net zero. The ability to handle CO2 at both emission sources and directly from air, together with long-term storage in the subsurface, make CCS a crucial part of the energy transition. Join AspenTech experts to learn how innovations in digital technology support end-to-end CCS, with faster, widespread scale-up and improvements in economics and efficiency. Learn how you and your teams can: - Use rigorous modeling and economic analysis for rapid design and scale-up of carbon capture processes - Evaluate all current and new technology areas (such as liquid and physical solvent absorption, zeolites, membranes and other approaches) to find the most viable solution for your use cases - Leverage subsurface models to select depleted reservoirs and aquifers for CO2 storage that meet technical and economic criteria - Support optimized control and ongoing operator training to reduce risks and ensure proper CO2 storage You’ll see how chemical simulation models evaluate CCS approaches, such as converting CO2 to carbonates. Now is the time to adopt an end-to-end carbon capture and storage solution tailored to your needs. We encourage you to join the conversation by submitting questions when registering for the event.
