Oil & Gas
Change comes to the Oil & Gas Industry
By virtue of its size and influence on other industry segments it can be argued that Oil & Gas is the dominant player among the process industries. In fact leaders within the sector make up five of the world’s eight largest companies as measured by annual Revenue, and output from the Oil & Gas sector plays a critical role in adjacent industries ranging from Chemicals and Pharmaceuticals to Rubber and Plastics.
The complexity of Oil & Gas production also stands apart from other process segments and that same complexity has been a driving force behind advances in regulatory control technologies. When equipped with appropriate technologies for monitoring, analyzing and optimizing PID-based regulatory control systems, Oil & Gas producers improve both the safety and the profitability of their day-to-day operations.
Leading Oil & Gas manufacturers utilize our technologies to enhance both their upstream and downstream operations. What’s more, those same customers provide meaningful input that has energized our product development efforts. Our value is based on a broad understanding of critical extraction and refining processes as well as on deep domain knowledge of PID-based regulatory control. Following are specific areas where Control Station can contribute to improve plant performance.
Most every aspect of oil and gas production is monitored with the notable exception of control loop performance. With its ability to proactively identify and isolate mechanical, interaction and tuning issues, PlantESP equips engineering staff with the advance warning they need to maintain optimal production levels.
While many industry practitioners are skilled at manual controller tuning, innovations in PID tuning software can now make everyone an expert. LOOP-PRO is industrial-grade technology that’s capable of handling your plant’s highly variable process conditions. It makes the tuning process faster and more consistent which are keys to success in oil and gas production.
Engineers know that regular PID tuning makes effective, efficient control possible. Even so, engineers are outnumbered by their counterparts in operations and few operators know how to detect an underperforming control loop let alone accurately communicate its behavior to plant engineers. Training can improve communication and control.

What Customers Say
The instructor provided an outstanding review of process control fundamentals to reinforce the practical design and tuning methods that were presented. It was far and away the most practical technical course I've taken in my seven-year career. I have a lot of great information to take back to the site.
