Digital Lifecycle Excellence for Pipelines
26 July 2021

Today's pipeline leaders must meet their business and production targets to remain competitive in their industries. Pipeline businesses also require a high level of financing to fund their capital projects and operational expenditures and have to compete with other sectors to attract scarce investor resources. They must do this while enduring record market volatility and selling their products for commodity prices at the lower end of the normal range. Furthermore, there are demands to transform energy so they can improve their environmental sustainability while decarbonizing operations. The future leaders in the pipeline industry will accelerate their ability to optimize and innovate by learning how to apply their physical and digital assets to deliver top performance across all categories.

Transform data complexity in the energy industry
15 June 2021

Across the evolution of every capital project that becomes an operational asset, the intelligence from each knowledge worker's contribution is stored somehow. Digitalization of project requirements, simulation-driven intelligent design, and optimized construction and commissioning makes the volume of that data massive and complex. The potential value that exists within that knowledge base is extremely high. In an industry where assets operate for decades, the ROI of each incremental improvement across its lifecycle can be significant.

Enhanced OGI improves Compressor Safety & Maintenance Coordination
15 April 2021

The Konica Minolta camera system aids in the detection of small leaks and thermal distribution.

Read the report on the benefits of clear images and stable operation as delivered by the Konica Minolta Camera Systems. In collaboration with Oil & Gas operators, Konica Minolta studied the operation of compressor stations during the period from late 2019 to early 2020.

Results demonstrated the benefit and importance of clear images for safe and stable operation:

  • Detect fugitive gas leaks quickly and easily
  • An analysis of thermal distribution of compressor engines
  • In addition, maintenance benefited from better planning and coordination.

With new technology and features, operators have the capability of keeping both their own employees and facilities safe, while minimizing economic loss thanks to efficient maintenance, as well as ensuring environmental compliance and peace of mind of the surrounding community.

Improved Measurement of Water Content in Natural Gas
1 April 2021

Given the unsettled nature of energy markets caused by the pandemic, the importance of monitoring critical attributes of pipeline gas is very high. Contaminates in natural gas can cause a variety of problems for pipeline operators and petrochemical plants, especially when combined with water. This makes accurate and reliable measurement of water content in natural gas streams critical, but traditional techniques often fall short. Fortunately, new analyzers offer much improved performance.
