As you might expect, this approach leads to many innovative ideas! Here are the latest.
Sensia Digital Solutions
Improve Operational Efficiency with Digital Automation
The oil and gas industry has experienced extreme volatility in the last few years: from oversupply and low prices to limited financial resources, and, more recently, the challenges of managing operations in person. Nevertheless, your company must continue to turn a profit and act sustainably. And to help, the industry has recognized the importance of digital technologies to transform the way it operates. Many forms of technology in the IIoT space are providing opportunities for end users to optimize their assets and reduce their costs while managing the rapidly changing workforce dynamic.
Drilling Rig Automation
Improve Safety, Reliability, and Efficiency
Whether exploring, developing new fields, or maintaining production levels, drilling is at the center of oil and gas operations. Efficiency and safety of drilling operations is paramount, which helps explain the focus on them today given current market conditions. Our drilling rig automation systems help companies improve accuracy, reduce cost and increase uptime while maintaining safety.
We offer a wide range of proven, robust technologies, from our Integrated Architecture system to our Intelligent Motor Control, that have been used globally in drilling rig automation, including the following applications:
- Drilling operations controls
- Mud pumps and drawworks systems
- Integrated data gathering
Integrated Control and Measurement Solution
Simplify Automation of Your Multi-well Pads with a Single Controller
Your multi-well pads likely have several RTUs and many types of hardware that create integration, networking, and security challenges. A modular and scalable, single-control platform links everything together. That way you only have to manage one system for oil and gas measurement and control.
You want to minimize the need for multiple RTUs that support multiple well pads. When you have many different systems, brands, and vendors, it can complicate your operations. Add in another layer of complication if you run on legacy systems. One platform can offer a modular and scalable design to allow you to continue to add well pads without additional RTUs. This architecture allows for improved adaptability, enhanced data integrity, and reduced installation time and cost. In other words, you work smarter and more efficiently.
One Infrastructure for Information and Control
The integration of control and information across the enterprise enables you to optimize your oil and gas operations. By connecting a production site, multiple sites or multiple plants with your people, you can realize optimal visibility. We deliver the foundation of this idea through our Integrated Architecture® system, which provides multiple automation disciplines in one plant-wide infrastructure to help increase efficiency and productivity across your operations.
At the heart of the Integrated Architecture® system is the Logix control platform, which incorporates process, drives and industrial safety control options with scalability and performance to match your needs. This is complemented by the Studio 5000 Automation Engineering & Design Environment®, which combines design and engineering applications into one framework. This combination can help you increase your automation productivity, reduce your costs during the lifecycle of a project, and reduce your total cost of ownership.
Maintain Safety in Hazardous Environments
Hazardous Location Products that Stand up to the Test
The oil and gas industry is well known for the remote and inhospitable locations in which its production and processing operations can be found. Much of the electrical equipment must operate in environments that contain explosive or flammable gases and material. This type of location requires special design considerations to maintain safe operations. What’s not well known is the number of products we provide that are rated and certified to help you cope with hazardous locations.
Whether your need is to have electrical devices operating in Class 1, Division 1 or 2, or zone 2 classified areas, we have a range of Allen-Bradley industrial control products that deliver proven predictable performance. Products that perform in hazardous locations include switches, operators, sensors, combination starters and safety modules.
