OPEX Group named Eugene Burke as principal advisor for behavioral psychology to support their X-PAS smart behaviors service to help oil and gas operators improve the safety and predictability of offshore operations by managing the risks posed by human behavior.
Advanced control: A new non-PID control algorithm, rate-predictive control (RPC), is adaptive to changes in process gain, which is helpful given the industry’s difficult history of loop tuning, auto-tuning, and model maintenance. RPC also can serve as a model-less feedback multivariable control algorithm.
Solutions range from predictive maintenance to artificial lift improvement.
Solution identifies production and equipment problems before they become apparent.
Improve confidence with a complete view of data.
Upstream oil & gas operations improved using data analytics.
The first step to bringing fieldbus networking and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) into process manufacturing plants and refineries may be changing device-level networking practices.
A risk management evaluation for safety-critical equipment (SCE), including use of a risk matrix, is fundamental to controlling operating hazards, but even proven industry hazard determination templates won’t work with outdated data.
A single source of truth can improve time-to-revenue.
Strength comes from global performance model integrated with measured data.
