Solutions for Oil and Gas Industry

Oil and Gas: umbrella coverage for monitoring, managing and controlling pipelines and substation networks.

Today the oil and gas industry faces many serious challenges:

  • Increasing difficulty and costs of finding qualified workforce in distant locations
  • Extra labor cost required to get the same amount of oil out of mature fields
  • Coordination of automation devices in today’s distributed operations
  • The necessity for improved customer demand forecasting
  • Tight integration of multiple IT systems for unified management approach

AggreGate Internet of Things Platform and AggreGate SCADA/HMI system provide umbrella coverage for monitoring, managing and controlling both processing facilities and geographically distributed installations like pipelines and substation networks. The system can expand to many thousands of RTUs, providing operational excellence at any scale.

AggreGate Solutions for Oil and Gas

Oil & gas solutions based on AggreGate Platform and AggreGate SCADA/HMI can:

  • Provide a unified SCADA platform for field and pipeline operations
  • Monitor wells, compressor stations and pipe stations
  • Conduct data acquisition and supervisory control for oil refineries and gas treatment plants
  • Enable comprehensive gas flow measurement and pipeline control/monitoring
  • Store historical meterings and metric statistics in relational, round-robin and nosql databases to find proper balance between data granularity, footprint size and access performance
  • Operate a rich set of integrated data processing and visualization tools like alerts, event filters, scheduler, reports, queries, scripts, models, widgets, dashboards, etc.
  • Interface operators via diverse client applications, from a smartphone to unified operations console connected to a video wall
  • Deliver critical messages to field personnel via e-mails and SMS messaging
  • Allow development of reusable server and interface components designed for a service-oriented architecture
  • Scale up to multiple sites and thousands of assets
  • Accommodate diverse network scenarios addressing bandwidth and latency issues typical in geographically distributed systems
  • Enable grouped operations and centralized management of configurations and applications
  • Connect to virtually any automation system, remote terminal unit (RTU), electronic field measurement (EFM) server, programmable logic controller (PLC), database, or business intelligence system
  • Allow unattended operations and mobile operation management

Process and Object Modelling

AggreGate modelling engine enables companies to develop complex models of common industrial processes and homologated facilities, such as wells or pump stations. Those models can be later referenced to provide rapid system expansion and protection of earlier engineering investments.

IT-Friendly Security

AggreGate security model is seamlessly woven into all aspects of system architecture. While smaller installations rely on user accounts matching individual operators, large multi-site deployments benefit from role-based accounts and authentication via Active Directory or other LDAP server. Internal Access Control Lists (ACLs) ensure fine-grained access to every system resource or resource group. All server-to-server and server-to-client communications, as well as most server-to-device communications, are performed via SSL-secured connections.

Control Rooms and Situations Centers

Being a system unification solution for oil and gas industry, AggreGate collects and processes cloud-based big data. Overall system state is traditionally rendered in a situation center. There are two major sets of AggreGate Platform modules sharing a common core that offer a unified vision of company's technological infrastructure:

  • AggreGate Network Manager covers monitoring and management of corporate IT infrastructure, enterprise applications and company's business services
  • AggreGate SCADA/HMI takes care of equipment control, field data acquisition, and telemetry

Despite both products are separate marketing brands, they are both based on AggreGate Platform core, sharing configuration, event and metric database, data processing and visualization tools, security model, and even physical hardware whenever necessary.

Unrestricted Northbound and Southbound Integration

AggreGate Platform and vertical solutions built atop of it provide unique broad range of connectivity options, from measuring temperature sensor voltage to pushing year-long aggregated statistics to IBM Maximo EAM. A huge set of device drivers, APIs and open-source SDK all together guarantee that any data exchange scenario will be solved with minimal efforts. In addition, Tibbo competence centers located on several continents have vast experience of implementing even the most sophisticated integration objectives on turnkey basis.

Benefits

  • Faster deployment due to open architecture, open-source SDK and APIs
  • Reduced technical knowledge requirements for plant personnel
  • Lower total cost of ownership (TCO) throughout all phases of system lifecycle
  • Seamless vertical integration of field operations data into upstream systems
  • Live modification, even most sophisticated configuration changes are applied without downtime or operations impact
