Indian oil & gas sector has been growing at a decent rate making it one of the six core industries in India. While witnessing high consumption demands the industry alongside has also been facing challenges related to price fluctuations and also safety related issues of employees working on- shore.
In oil & gas sector, process control is an important aspect which faces the challenges of implementing newer automation technologies across both upstream and downstream processes. While achieving this, they need to meet the safety, operating and product quality standards.  According to the ARC’s 5 year market & technology forecast, the Investment in automation by the oil & gas industry will be strong and is forecasted to grow through 2013.
Oil and gas producers are focused on production optimisation and increasing reliability of their processing operations. Automation is needed right from offshore production, onshore production, transportation and processing.  In all these processes there is a constant pressure to help control performance, reduce downtime, improve safety increase productivity and perform diagnostics. These objectives are achieved with automation systems like DCS, SCADA, PLC and with solutions that integrate these control systems with the enterprise systems thus enhancing the productivity.
Plant intelligence has been streamlining and synchronising manufacturing operations in real-time thus optimising the production activities. In typical environment, there are plethoras of systems thatwork in isolation. Organisations want to keep their investments intact and need solution that will ‘Connect – Integrate – Analyse’ their processes and give management key performances index (KPI) that help take informed decisions.
Plant Intelligence solutions facilitate flexibility, reduce production costs and enhance profitability by: • Improving visibility to expose hidden bottlenecks• Connecting disparate systems within the plant hierarchy for better integration • Reducing material waste which directly reduces cost and shortens cycle time to increase productivity• Cutting downtime to enhance OEE• Offering real-time information on customer orders across multiple plants• Data Acquisition from current as well as legacy systems at a centralised location • Generating KPIs, real-time visibility, and comprehensive reporting • Managing and optimising productions processes with manufacturing execution systems • Manufacturing intelligence & integration with SAP MII adaptive manufacturing capabilities.
