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.

Preventative maintenance to avoid production equipment failures

Posted by Grand Lau on Feb 3, 2021 12:45:00 PM

Equipment failures are expected but can be avoided with a comprehensive Preventive maintenance program. Preventive maintenance is simply planned maintenance that prolongs the lifespan of company assets.

An effective maintenance program needs to have three elements; it must be efficient, performed regularly, and reduce or minimize equipment failures. Consistent reminders and reliable systems help make preventative maintenance program manageable and effective.

Reduce pipeline leak detection alarm fatigue

Posted by Tanner Erickson on Feb 1, 2021 11:45:00 AM

The human information processing system (better known as our "attention span") will choose and arrange sensory input to focus on the appropriate thoughts or behaviors while avoiding unnecessary distractions. Our attention can only handle so much. 

When energy companies deal with alarm fatigue, workers are subject to various alarms (alerts) and consequently become desensitized to them; This leads to longer response times and missed alarm warnings. Alarm control and management are vital to avoiding alarm fatigue. 

The pressure for field personnel to multi-task is high yet focusing on more than one task at a time is very difficult. Alarm fatigue increases the chances of an actual leak going undetected, resulting in significant damages to the environment lease property, revenue, and presenting a hazardous situation until the leak is caught, repaired, remediated.

What you need to know for AER measurement schematics regulations

Posted by Community User on Feb 4, 2014 3:47:00 PM

Producers in Alberta are subject to  measurement schematics regulations as part of Directive 017. Do you have questions about what you need to do to remain compliant? In this blog post, we hope to give answers to some of those questions to help you get there.

What facilities do I need to create measurement schematics for?

Producers must have a well detailed measurement schematic for all active facilities, with no grandfathering for active facilities. Any reactivated facility must have an up-to-date schematic within three months of reactivation or after the implementation period, whichever is later.
