Digital Transformation to an IIoT Cloud Platform made easy

Posted by Amy Thibault on Jan 22, 2021 12:00:38 PM

Operational challenges that you face today are broad and always growing. Strategically planning to overcome and remain sustainable for long-term growth is always on the back of your mind, but with so many decisions and options on the table of what the right thing to do (or not do) and with so many operational threats always on your heels, the timing of those strategies coming into play continuously get harder, and tougher every day.

Progressing with IIoT on the cloud

Posted by Julian Sanchez on Sep 23, 2020 1:15:00 PM

 

For many E&P companies considering field automation, it may seem that installing a SCADA system gives them all the information, alarms and control they need to reach the real goals, which include boosting production and reducing costs. And SCADA does help, but not nearly as much as installing automation through the Cloud.

In this ever-increasing digital world, people and companies rely more and more on the Cloud for data storage and integration. IIoT brings that missing piece where field data and process data can join the rest of your information on the Cloud.

Freedom to work from anywhere

Posted by Amy Thibault on Jun 18, 2020 10:52:00 AM

Way, way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth, I had a very annoying flip phone that was really only able to make and receive calls and (upon the rare occasion) get and send a few random text messages from other techie types. The main reason I found this phone so annoying is I wanted it to be able to do so much more; and it seemed like it shouldn't be all that difficult to make it happen.

But, that's all there was on the market at the time.

I continuously wondered why on earth someone didn't make them to fetch my email, or have a decent camera in them. Then it finally became a reality and just like that we all became more mobile than we had ever dreamed of being! It was AWESOME being set free from waiting for an email, and unchained from my desk where I would often be found waiting for information to be sent.

Fishing to optimize production

Posted by Amy Thibault on Jan 15, 2019 12:55:00 PM

I’ve been an obsessed angler for years. I don’t need a special reason or day to go fishing either – I go any chance I get. Sunny 108-degree Texas days, Christmas day, or drizzly cool days, it isn’t about the day, temperature, or location – it’s simply about the experience.

There is something about the peacefulness of being on the lake, or a river that captures my senses, and instantly relaxes me, while at the same time ignites my creative side with a new sense unlimited possibilities. But it isn’t the excitement of actually catching a fish at all (since it’s not my favorite meal) – but it’s the experience that captivates my mind, warms my soul, and energizes my spirit.

Autonomous production is now

Posted by Adin Nand on Nov 13, 2018 1:06:00 PM

From 1859, when Colonel Edwin Drake successfully drilled America’s first oil well in Pennsylvania and over the next several decades, the oil and gas business was primarily driven by manual labor

This meant high vehicle mileage, and lost production time because pumpers and engineers were constantly needed on location, which resulted in operational inefficiencies and many safety issues. Until the introduction of automation technology into the oil and gas industry.

As automation technology has progressed, from cable tools to rotary drills; from car phones to palm-sized smart phones; from desktop computers for accounting to ubiquitous sensors sending big data through the cloud to smart devices; oilfield efficiency has continued to cut costs, save time, boost production and improve safety.

Gain control and information with predictive analytics through IIoT

Posted by Massimo Torri on May 7, 2018 12:30:00 PM

What if your wells or pipelines could call you up and tell you they were sick before they went down?

If you’ve ever gone to the doctor to get some medicine at the first sign of a fever—to try to shorten the illness—you understand what I mean.

Most of the time now, in the oil patch, the first we know of a problem is when the pump breaks down, the compressor slams on the brakes, a valve gives way or there’s some other catastrophic—and expensive—problem.

What if we could use Big Data to start detecting the lead-up to a problem and fix it before it became a shutdown or, in the case of a pipeline, a big leak? It could help our people work smarter by doing small jobs in time to reduce the major ones.

Zedi monitoring opportunities grow tall in rich Nebraska soil

Posted by Massimo Torri on Mar 13, 2018 11:41:00 AM

 

In the summer of 2017 a team of valiant Zedities went to Nebraska with a proven oilfield data integration platform, to do a test. The trip turned out to be more than an exercise in technology: the fun of working in a hot corn field in August picking up some unwelcome critters along the way, like local ticks for example, was priceless! The test was not on oil, or gas.

Zedi is using IIoT solution on...slushy drink machines!

Posted by Rebecca Geddes on Sep 21, 2017 12:00:00 PM

On a hot day when I want my favorite cold slushy drink—known in the industry as an FCB, or frozen carbonated beverage—I don’t want to be disappointed when I get to the store. My worst case scenario is to see an “Out of Order” sign when you’re ready to enjoy that smooth, ice-cold fizziness deliciousness. Or worse, when you push your cup against the lever and it splatters and spits at you because it’s out of syrup.

It’s bad news for retailers, too, because an FCB customer often doesn’t make another selection—they walk!

Now, thanks to us at Zedi, one retailer is saving money each month on their FCB machines because of what they know about product flow and something we call “mean time to failure.”
