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.
