Electrification of Production Systems for Mature Fields

September 15, 2022
Schlumberger
As our industry transitions over the coming years toward fully decarbonized energy, we will be facing the imperative of answering the demand for conventional energy with new priorities on capital stewardship, increased productivity, and greater environmental sustainability. Investing billions of dollars in large new greenfield developments will become more and more difficult to justify. Operators will turn to their existing assets to connect additional resources and extract more oil and gas from them, with the priority on projects with low breakeven, low carbon, and short payback. Electrification of production systems will provide answers for this situation. But while operators fully understand the value of electrification for greenfield developments, its benefit for existing mature fields is less well known. This webcast will focus on the benefits of electrification for wells, subsea, and topside in brownfield applications. During this discussion, we will expand on the new capabilities enabled by electric systems that will help push existing frontiers. In addition, we will address some beliefs and myths and demonstrate that incremental investment costs for electrification of existing fields can return a large value while reducing the carbon footprint of our industry.

How to Take Advantage of a Highly Integrated Process Control and Edge Control Platform

September 06, 2022
Rockwell Automation and Sensia
Integration of edge computers with real-time process control data is important for users who want to implement analysis and advanced data processing in the field. Traditionally, edge computers are a separate device that must be integrated with controllers and flow computers. Custom applications can be run on the edge computer that will allow for highly advanced real-time analysis of the field measurements, however building an edge environment and integrating data can be a non-trivial task. Similarly, selecting the right edge platform requires deep knowledge of security, application, and communication requirements. Sensia provides a new perspective for those wanting to implement edge computing with their real time control systems. We will discuss and show examples of what a highly integrated edge and control environment can look like and how it creates new options for how you manage and plan your automation projects.

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
