All the latest news from GPA Europe in January 2021.
This month we are looking back to a paper from Simon Crawley-Boevey and co-authored by Alessandro Bettin, Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE). Presented by Simon at our 2018 Autumn Conference in Barcelona:
Through a very interesting presentation, Simon showed the audience that the gas industry is changing, and moving into digitalisation. Converging ideas from process and automation, his paper looked at how operators integrate asset performance management solutions with process simulation models and data analytics to allow them to predict and quantify operations, thus increasing profitability.
"The gas industry is witnessing an important convergence in the process and operational worlds. This paper looks at how operators can integrate asset performance management (APM) solutions, together with process simulation models and data analytics, to allow for continuous interrogation of plant data against the process model, thus providing the ability to predict and quantify operational decisions in near real-time to manage risk and boost profitability. The paper considers two use cases, one for offshore production and one for an LNG plant to illustrate the workflow and the outcomes."
