Implement your cloud platform strategy

Posted by Community User on Mar 15, 2022 11:51:00 AM

 

 

More and more companies are looking to implement a cloud platform strategy —either they're starting at zero or extending what they already have in place. In both cases, they're are looking for answers to many questions when we begin most conversations, including:

How fast can I install cloud software?

Do I have to use a set system, or can I choose what I need?

Can you integrate with my existing SCADA systems or must we start over with your SCADA system?

These are among the top questions for companies looking to become more efficient and boost profits while reducing their bottom line. Many cloud platforms have a wide variety of options and abilities to customize a system to a Customer's needs.

Start to finish project management

Posted by Community User on Mar 8, 2022 11:28:00 AM

 

 

 

 

Maintaining a cloud-based project requires an in-depth understanding of what you are trying to do and how best to execute it, but when this level of detail is unavailable, breaking down the cloud-based project into phases can help you focus on tasks.

 

The most crucial phase in any cloud-based project is at the start, where you decide what your operations' goals are and outline what needs to be done to achieve these goals. This will provide more clarity that applies to other phases throughout the cloud implementation process.

 

We offer cloud-based software solutions to new and existing industrial customers. Emerson's Zedi Cloud platform allows you to monitor, control, and optimize your assets remotely from anywhere via our web interface Zedi Access, and Zedi Go mobile app for your smart devices.

Why centralizing data in the cloud matters

Posted by Community User on Mar 1, 2022 11:15:00 AM

 

 

 

 

If your company isn't centralizing its data you may be missing out on increasing productivity in your business.

 

Centralizing data means putting all your operational data into one single place. By consolidating data, your authorized company employees will have quick and easy access from anywhere. All that will be required is a secure internet connection.

 

Our cloud platform and Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings help your operations compile data from any digital monitoring hardware via gateways that support various protocols into a single centralized cloud location. From a single source, we can deliver real-time data to your computer or mobile device that allows authorized end-users to actively see the information you decide is relevant to each person or role within your organization.

Leveraging IIoT cloud software and technology

Posted by Community User on May 20, 2021 1:45:00 PM

There's a new sense of confidence that companies can remain operational with improved efficiencies by employing digital tools, reducing costs, and acquiring the best assets. For a long time, companies kept operations going during challenging times by decreasing LOE’s, deferring maintenance expenses, divesting properties with higher costs, cutting production, laying off personnel. Instead of relying on these traditional methods, companies should instead focus on creating digital operations by installing IIoT software.

 

More Customers are using Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies and strategizing their digital journey to improve work processes, improve production, and begin the path to operational excellence.

Customize your cloud strategy

Posted by Community User on Apr 30, 2021 12:30:00 PM

You’ve probably already decided that digitally transforming your operations is necessary as you face a shrinking workforce and tighter budget dollars. The productivity advantages of a full cloud software strategy implementation are many and well documented.

Like cars, snowflakes and superheroes, no two cloud computing service providers are exactly alike, nor are their customers. So, when picking a cloud software provider, it’s important to know if they can adapt or customize their system to exactly what you need (or don't need), or if you’re supposed to bend your procedures to someone’s limited, out-of-the-box configuration.

Here are some questions to ask before you decide:

  1. Can the vendor’s system easily fit with the hardware you may already have?
  2. Can the new system seamlessly integrate your historical data with the new input they’ll gather?
  3. Are Project Managers available to handle all the details?
  4. Will the vendor provide the reports you need, by format, frequency, user authorization and department needs?
  5. Do they provide ongoing support?

Meet AER regulations with Zedi Measurement Schematics

Posted by Community User 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 Community User 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.

Simplify and consolidate your data

Posted by Community User 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.

Unconventional wells exceed expectations with unconventional lift

Posted by Community User on Nov 20, 2018 2:46:00 PM

Things used to be so much simpler. Every home had one phone line. Every store took cash or checks, and almost every well had a rod pump over its whole life span.

Complexity though, can be really great for your bottom line.

With cell phones, we can call for help from just about anywhere. Debit cards are way faster than check writing. And using a series of unconventional lifting methods on unconventional wells is unlocking much stronger potential for oil and gas production—and profitability that we could only dream of a few short years ago.

Monitoring and control can keep progressive cavity pumps from costly cycles [White Paper]

Posted by Community User on Oct 11, 2018 3:56:32 PM

Progressive cavity pump problems
 
For pumping heavy oil loaded with sludge, sand and other thickening and abrasive contents, a progressive cavity pump is unparalleled for effectiveness. Almost no other pump design can survive even a few barrels of this kind of oil.
 
PC pumps allow for pump speed control—a vital option as production levels change over the life of a well. The main drawback to PC pumps comes with restarting them if they have to be stopped for any reason, including overfilled storage tanks, pipeline back pressure or empty diesel fuel tanks. In my experience there is only about a 50-50 chance of getting a PC pump restarted without extended cleaning and servicing by a work-over rig. This costs the producer in both service expenses and in lost production revenue.
