While intelligent instruments comprise the vast majority of the field devices employed in offshore oil and gas production fields, up to 90 percent of the diagnostic data they generate is stranded in the field and never used. Companies must find a way to capture and utilize this valuable information to optimize efficiency, improve reliability, and achieve the highest safety standards. Maintaining essential assets for high performance and delivering support to the right place at the right time are additional challenges that are growing in importance as the number of skilled personnel on remote facilities declines. Top management must have a vision of Intelligent Fields and the value they add in order to lead the way to ever safer, more efficient offshore operations.
By integrating technologies that are in many cases already in place, production companies can utilize the diagnostic data acquired from smart field devices and digital valve controllers to improve operations and add another degree of safety. GEX asset management software and control systems are capable of delivering real-time information for making timely decisions to preserve assets, increase efficiency, and prevent costly unexpected failures. The information is often communicated to experienced personnel at Remote Operations Centers and Expert Support Centers for management of multiple facilities. While Intelligent Fields present different challenges, GEX is uniquely prepared with a complete program to make your vision a reality even in the most difficult environments.
