Oil and Gas Control Centers
The challenges of modern oil and gas operations involve equipping control room operators with the means to monitor and manage the ever-growing number of inbound information and data, whilst enabling collaborative working across multiple teams, and across multiple locations.
In the oil and gas industry, control centers play a critical role by ensuring that operations run smoothly. They are responsible for monitoring production processes, safety systems, and all other functions that support the entire value chain. It’s essential to have reliable and efficient operator focused solutions that improve productivity, enhance safety and enable better decision-making.
Datapath’s Aetria, allows operators to view real-time insights exactly the way they need it. Operators can take control of any remote information system, collaborate more efficiently by sharing information to larger video wall displays, using their own multi-screen canvas. This reduce downtime by identifying problems early and keeping operations running smoothly.
Aetria, The Control Room Solution for Oil & Gas Control Centers
Monitor, manage and collaborate - your way
Operators have a challenge of monitoring, operating, and maintaining the vast quantity of data sources. An upstream operation for example may involve information about reservoir efficiency, flowlines of pipes and wells, depth measurements of drilled wells, and daily oil and gas production rates, all of which need to be monitored by operators in a control room.
Aetria can ingest hundreds of data sources and accommodate third party applications, such as engineering or exploration software, and bring them all into its centralized platform for visualization and control. As a result, operators can now create specific templates and layouts on their entire operational view to easily organize information.
If an incident occurs, they can share directly to a video wall for wider team viewing, ensuring all parties have relevant, timely information, resulting in quicker response times, better informed decisions, and enhanced collaborative working.
High quality visuals when the detail matters
Video surveillance is utilized by organizations for the security and monitoring of remote locations and areas where humans are unable to access, including underground pipelines, water levels at an offshore oil rig, and site operations within a refining plant. When incidents occur, it is imperative to have the best quality visuals available, in real time, to enable better informed decision making.
Aetria delivers all supported data sources in 4K, so operators can view in pristine detail when image quality is vital.
Operator control when needed
Control room operators sometimes need more than the ability to view and share sources. From AI-powered rig drilling programs to managing daily oil field service operations, operators and wider team members need access to software programs in order to make changes.
Users of Aetria can control any supported data source using their own keyboard and mouse (even when the software app or program is on another computer located remotely). This enables operators to view and act when needed and reduces bottom line costs on additional propriety software expenditure.
Oil and gas operations may need expanding to meet future needs. A new offshore oil and gas rig or extended network of pipes may need constructing, with hundreds of additional sensors, CCTV, and smaller control rooms to be fitted.
Aetria provides a scalable platform that is easy to expand as more capacity is required. All data sources within an entire operation can all be added and integrated as needed over time.
