The operational philosophy for the Pohokura production facility was to establish an unmanned site with zero normal operating presence (ZNOP). Plant operation would be performed off-site from a remote control room using a distributed control system (DCS). Remote operation is an ideal way to help keep personnel safe and away from potentially hazardous equipment. Its operational success relies on excellent control, fault diagnostics and network capabilities.
