The Evolution of SCADA and Enterprise
8 February 2022

Sponsor: Stratus Technologies

The change that is now permeating our industry is not constrained to how we operate but also extends to the tools that are now being employed to further optimize our processes and to deliver cost cutting improvements. Advanced analytics using AI and ML are optimizing recurring activities such as scheduled maintenance and equipment inspections.  Combined with Edge and Cloud technology, these tools are changing the industry landscape by redefining automation and allowing a previously unheard-of level of efficiency.

To realize the benefits of this technology, additional hardware and software will need to be deployed to collect and cleanse data at the edge.  The edge platform employed to do this must be designed with both hardware and software geared to be easily installed and maintained and it must enable the current IT support staff to increase network size while minimizing workload impact. 

Participants will learn about: 

  • Next evolution of automation and autonomous operations
  • Utilizing solutions to enable edge to enterprise 
  • Important factors to consider a scalable edge solution

How Pipeline Operators are Planning to Evolve Their SCADA Platforms Through 2030
14 December 2021

Sponsor: Emerson

Join us as we unpack the results of our recent supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system survey and learn which steps oil and gas pipeline operators are taking to protect their systems and critical data long term. This Emerson-sponsored survey addresses a range of topics, including cybersecurity, systems integration, user experience, situational awareness, and data warehousing.

There is significant upside to implementing an integrated SCADA platform, but this integration may extend beyond what you are familiar with today. We will discuss how to securely drive optimization enterprise wide by cohesively managing data in a single SCADA platform, from operations to commercial requirements.

This webinar is highly recommended to anyone who plays a role in, or is responsible for, specifying a SCADA platform. You will get expert insight on the most important considerations to keep in mind along with advice on how integrate advanced applications to maximize your return on investment.

API RP 1173 – Pipeline SMS Assessments: Overview and Implementation
28 October 2021

Sponsor: American Petroleum Institute

API Recommended Practice (RP) 1173, Pipeline Safety Management Systems, allows companies to take a principled and performance-based approach to managing complex pipeline operations. Implementing a Pipeline SMS (PSMS) using API RP 1173 improves pipeline safety performance and ultimately moves the industry closer to our shared goal of zero pipeline incidents.

The API PSMS Third-Party Assessment Program, based on API RP 1173, was created as a consistent, out-of-the-box solution to satisfy PSMS assessment requirements. It uses the industry approved tools and maturity model, coupled with real-time benchmarking. During this webinar, Colin Frazier, Senior Manager at API, will give an overview of the API Third-Party PSMS Assessment Program. Dwight Johnston, an experienced API PSMS assessor, will follow to discuss key implementation barriers seen during assessments, highlighting key sections of RP 1173 that warrant additional consideration. Questions will be taken at the end of the presentation.
