To obtain optimal production in the oil and gas industry, the asset must be operated at appropriate setpoints and associated with the equipment’s Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) network to provide transferrable data.
In oil, gas and chemical processing applications, accurate and reliable temperature measurement is crucial, and is traditionally achieved using thermowells, which have been known to be problematic
Engineers like facts and seek credible information sources on COVID-19 (Coronavirus) effects to the engineering-related world. Engineers also have technologies, processes and expert advice that can help. See Control Engineering highlights.
Artificial intelligence (AI) techniques are helping control and maintenance effectiveness, and an application demonstration shows how process simulation and machine teaching builds AI-based controllers to resolve industry problems, as shown in an Oct. 21 Virtual Training Week course.
Oil & Gas Engineering targets engineers responsible for business-critical functions, technology and processes from the wellhead to the refinery. These professionals design, specify, implement, upgrade and maintain equipment in the areas of automation, process management, cybersecurity, asset management and worker safety.
Cover Story: System integration case studies from several industries show lower costs and greater efficiency in projects using supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), human-machine interface (HMI), and manufacturing execution systems (MES). These won awards.
