Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Reshaping Today’s Pipeline Leak Detection Systems

While operating companies in upstream, midstream, and downstream oil & gas have been utilizing leak detection systems (LDS) for decades; new regulations, rising concerns about pipeline integrity and cybersecurity, and the availability of several powerful new technologies have spurred increased interest in these solutions among end users. This bodes well for the overall market in the coming years. Today’s increasingly software-based leak detection systems incorporate advanced automation plus new, disruptive technologies such as predictive analytics, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to improve pipeline safety, availability, and security.

Servitization for Industrial Products

A key driver for servitization is the increasing complexity of products. It has become impractical for a general-purpose maintenance team at the end customer’s site to support and maintain modern equipment containing mechatronics, electronics, software and IP.  As a result, users look to the supplier for support.  Services have become an inseparable component of the product.  End-users who are involved in the supplier section of complex assets should include servitization in the selection criteria.

Remote Monitoring for Improved Asset Management

In asset intensive industries, such as oil and gas, routine maintenance and inspections are crucial for proper asset management. Regular maintenance and inspection works also help to ensure workplace safety. Various new technologies are playing a major role to help improve and simplify these routine tasks and thus, in turn improve the integrity and reliability of assets and infrastructure. Remote monitoring is one of the latest technologies used in the oil and gas and other process industries for better asset management.

Standardized Subsea Controls Poised To enhance Deep-sea Oil & Gas Production

The development of subsea controls has been based on a step by step development over the years adding more and more functionalities to the various systems. Today, tremendous technology developments are ongoing, driven by the goal of locating processing systems on the seabed. The increase in complexity is extensive compared to the early beginning with North East Frigg some 30 years ago towards the subsea compression facilities that are currently being realized. There has been a development in technological areas such as; design, materials, flow assurance, control and instrumentation, installation and operation. The driver has been to develop simpler and more cost-efficient ways to produce, process and transport oil and gas offshore.

Artificial Lift Optimization via Industrial IoT Empowers Digital Oilfields

For decades, operating companies have used artificial lift optimization (ALO) systems to enhance oil and gas production. But in today’s “lower for longer” oil price market, with owner-operators, independent E&P companies, and other industry stakeholders trying to squeeze out more profits per barrel of oil equivalent, solutions designed to optimize artificial lift systems are in greater demand than ever. New age automation technologies, the trend toward digitalization, and the emerging Industrial IoT (IIoT), help further increase the value proposition for today’s artificial lift optimization solutions.

Securing Blended IT, OT, and IoT Systems

While these connectivity-related developments offer significant benefits, they also increase the risks of cyber incidents.  Connectivity creates new attack vectors, removes barriers to lateral movement, and enables broader access to information stores and critical control systems that amplifies the potential impact.

The Four Significant Benefits of Smart City Standards

Smart City standards future proof your projects - so you can avoid technological and business process obsolescence. They commoditize software and hardware solutions which drives down costs and increases availability. They speed the development of new feature as manufacturers attempt to differentiate their offering beyond that of the standard, and they allow virtually free access to the accumulated intelligence of an ecosystem of domain experts.
