Oil & Gas
The oil & gas industry can be categorized as industries that deal with petroleum. A few examples of oil & gas industries that are currently using our products are: Drilling & Fracking, Oil Rigs & Platforms, Pipelines, and Refineries. See how the following companies have benefited from using our products.
Kinder Morgan is the largest energy infrastructure company in North America. They own an interest in or operate approximately 84k miles of pipelines and approximately 180 terminals.
The Pacific Liquids Pipeline operates a 3k mile refined petroleum pipeline on the west coast of the United States. They needed to consolidate data from 27 remote locations into 2 centralized historians. The data transfers needed to be throttled since they were working with limited bandwidth and did not want to impact their on-going operations. The remote sites also needed to store data in 2 historians for redundancy purposes.
Using our solution, Kinder Morgan was able to synchronize data from 54 historians with complete control of the transfer speeds to ensure no impact to the on-going operations. Kinder Morgan uses the system for regulator inspections and has reduced investments in network infrastructure and hardware. It has also given them the ability to reduce the amount of resources they need to manage remote pumping stations.
PBF Energy Delaware City Refinery
PBF Energy is one of the largest independent petroleum refiners and suppliers of unbranded transportation fuels, heating oil, and other petroleum products in the United States. The Delaware City Refinery has a throughput capacity of 190k barrels per day and the capability to process a diverse heavy slate of crudes with a high concentration of sulfur. It is one of the largest and most complex refineries on the east coast.
The Delaware City Refinery has been using our products since 1988. Our products have provided their engineers a much needed trending solution. Operators today now have a clear and reliable view of both the real-time and historical process data. Their process engineers have been able to increase productivity significantly to increase output and gain incremental revenues for the refinery. This increased production was done without any impact to EPA requirements on air quality and emissions.
A large Texas based independent exploration and production company has been fracking oil to help meet the world’s energy needs.
To increase operational efficiencies and troubleshoot failures, a fracking company has been using our products. We have created a solution that enables them to monitor their fracking fleets located throughout the western United States. Data can be accessed directly by their managers to achieve a higher rate of production and decrease downtime. They now have the ability to access their data at any-time from anywhere to lower operational costs.
