Operational reporting with Zedi Vital

Posted by Chris Quigley on Mar 16, 2021 11:15:00 AM

Operational reporting is imperative for any business, regardless of size or industry. Reports provide a means to track and analyze your operations' performance and overall health while identifying areas for improvement and insights for future growth.

Consistent reporting and monitoring of operations inform senior management and other stakeholders about what is happening within their organization.

With Emerson's Zedi Cloud SCADA solutions, we offer our oil and gas customers a scalable cloud-based platform that supports any digital monitoring hardware for real-time operational production data.

Improve internal communications via cloud-based measurement schematics

Posted by Chris Quigley on Feb 25, 2021 12:15:00 PM

Measurement schematics is a useful software as a service (SaaS) tool to improve the communication between your field operations, production, and accounting team. Schematics help track the flow of production and troubleshooting measurement issues.

From my experience, most schematics drawings are saved in area files on a company’s network drives with limited accessibility to other people that need access to them. With no server to purchase or software to install or maintain, our team can quickly integrate Emerson's Zedi Measurement Schematics application within Emerson's Zedi cloud based platform that's scalable for remote SCADA monitoring and control of field devices.

Meet AER regulations with Zedi Measurement Schematics

Posted by Chris Quigley on Feb 11, 2021 1:30:00 PM

IN an effort to help you better understand the importance of measurement schematics to your operations for Alberta's Energy Regulations (AER) we gathered a list of questions were most frequently asked about, while demonstrating how Emerson's cloud-based Zedi Measurement Schematics application can help meet these requirements.

General questions producers inquire about regarding AER regulation are many, but here are the answers to the most often asked, and of course we're always here to help you with any additional questions or help you may need.

Create measurement schematics with ease

Posted by Chris Quigley on Sep 16, 2020 12:45:00 PM

Measurement schematics are often required by local, state or country Governments to ensure measurement, accounting, and reporting compliance and are visual tools showing the current physical layout of facilities. Schematics should be regularly reviewed and used by groups such as operations, engineering, and accounting to ensure a common understanding.

Easily capture production data

Posted by Chris Quigley on Aug 20, 2020 10:30:00 AM

Field Data Capture (FDC) is the gathering and analysis of manually entered or electronically uploaded data from field equipment. Oil and gas facilities have hundreds of metering points. Multiple departments within an organization require the data from these metering points.

Some of the field data is necessary to meet government reporting requirements. Data must be collected on time and accurately to reassure the recipients of the data’s validity.

How to speed the way to autonomous production

Posted by Chris Quigley on Aug 28, 2019 12:08:00 PM

The benefits of making oil and gas production autonomous are many. Production increases based on the ability to detect and remedy problems in seconds rather than hours is topmost, followed by safety, efficiencies when physical repairs are needed and more precision in PM schedules are among the others.

We’re not there yet—some would point out that the Oil Patch, due to its boom-and-bust nature, lags behind other industries in this area—but we’ve made big strides since the 2015-16 bust. Necessity being the mother of invention.

Simplify and consolidate your data

Posted by Chris Quigley on Apr 12, 2019 2:08:26 PM

It’s surprising how many operators are using one software system or company to monitor tanks, another to automate pumps and yet another for back office reporting software. There may have been a time in history when this was necessary—there was a lot of narrow specialization at one time—but it is definitely hard to keep up with.

When something goes wrong, who do you call? If the problem is beyond the scope of your own people’s training, is the issue with the software, the communication system, or the security of it all? And then who is going to fit the problem itself? This does not help you, or your team focus on your production.

After all, you digitally transformed your operations to increase efficiency, not create confusion and headaches.
