New era of autonomous rod pump is here

Posted by Amy Thibault on Apr 12, 2022 11:00:00 AM

 

More aspects of oil and gas operations are joining the autonomous operations revolution. Now the iconic rod pump is enabling significant improvements with its operations regarding efficiency, safety and production.

The sun is actually rising on a new rod pump era with Emerson's Zedi Autonomous Rod Pump Management that is now changing the way producers and operations work each day for the better.

What was once endless trips to the well site with only two typical outcomes, both of which are a problem: It’s working fine, so no trip was needed; or it’s been down for two days and someone should’ve been out there to make repairs and restore production—or clean up a spill—hours, or days ago.

Getting cloud on time and on budget with Project Management services

Posted by Amy Thibault on Apr 5, 2022 11:15:00 AM

 

 

Digital transformation projects usually require many complex steps. Each of these steps requires a well thought out, budgeted, and highly detailed plan. Who provides that plan will be your companies key to successfully reaching that desired destination for your operations on your time-frame and your budget requirements.

Many companies undervalue the importance of project management as a crucial component for project success. Instead the project(s) become everyone's baby; not one person. Strong leaders prefer to have one person accountable and responsible for the project as a whole; or as some leaders like to say 'one throat to choke' (I write that with a smile on my face and all due respect). This way everyone knows the exact time line, expectations and one person is in charge of the budget so it doesn't run wild.

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.

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.

Gas distribution safety transformation

Posted by Amy Thibault on Feb 22, 2022 2:00:00 PM

 

 

There are some things you need to be notified of somewhat quickly, but not instantly. But some things you need to know instantly. Like where your keys are when you’re late for work. But if you work for a municipal gas company, an over-pressure situation takes priority over pretty much everything else. And instantly, is just barely fast enough.

It’s why so many companies are digitally transforming their line monitoring—and Emerson's Zedi Cloud SCADA Solutions is leading the way.

Sensors placed at critical points throughout your system, you—and all authorized personnel who need to respond—will be notified quickly when an over-pressure situation happens. That way you can make adjustments, in person or remotely.

Setting up alarms on your assets enables you to prevent physical and economic loss through faster operator intervention and response times.

How many alarms can an operator effectively handle per day? ISA 18.2 states that, ideally, one alarm per 10 minutes can be taken care of without sacrifice to the operator’s other duties. Two alarms per 10 minutes are identified as manageable.

Cold weather shut natural gas production and pipelines, which refineries use in power generation. Widespread power outages and instability of external power supply forced shutdowns across the state.
