Petroleum, Gas and Chemicals
Our range of solutions can help – covering upstream and midstream operations from the wellhead through pipeline and tank farm management, we bring a unique combination of powerful rugged control solutions, coupled with software that ensures responsive operations, and optimal asset performance.
More than just reliable
Our controls and rugged RTU solutions have been proven in the harshest environments – and you’ll find our industry leading iFIX and CIMPLCITY HMI solutions paired with our powerful Historian and reporting solutions at the heart of the operations centres of the UK’s leading producers. Our systems are more than just reliable – they have helped companies get the most return on every dollar invested in extraction and transport.
Operational excellence begins with understanding your data. You need to capture, store, contextualise, and visualise real-time information – and make it available to the right people at the right time to enable the right decisions.
We have a full suite of advanced, proven, and integrated data management and data analytics software products, starting with the Proficy Historian and including GE’s Proficy SmartSignal predictive analytics and diagnostics. With GE software, everybody in the decision-making process—engineering, operations, C-level, and more—can have access to the specific, role-based information they need to do their jobs….and optimise every aspect of processes and equipment health.
Enterprise SCADA for Midstream
With dispersed assets onshore and offshore, it’s imperative for oil and gas companies to monitor, manage and distribute tremendous volumes of field data—from the wellheads to the control room and at the enterprise level. Moving from data acquisition to complete integration of real-time enterprise information enables faster and better decision making and response for increased efficiency.
Increasing enterprise visibility into critical parameters
GE offers a suite of tightly integrated software and hardware solutions, including a market-leading client/server-based supervisory control and data acquisition SCADA system that integrates with powerful historian, analytics, and work process management capabilities to help maximise the value of your information.
Access to timely and accurate mission-critical information from fixed assets such as oil and gas wells, compressor stations, pipelines, fluid storage tanks and utility meters, can eliminate critical gaps in your oil and gas operations, resulting in higher productivity and long-term growth.
Integration with our Work Process Management software enables pipeline operators to digitise manual and automated processes with one tool–capturing process, traceability and quality data across systems and enabling you to manage by exception, orchestrate production and achieve event-based, data-driven results.
Control Room Management
Globally, we have more than 1,500,000 Km of oil and gas pipeline – with more than 600,000 Km in North America alone. These numbers go up even more with the addition of other hazardous gas and liquids transported through pipelines. Though efficient and critical, these pipelines do carry high costs for individual safety incidents. Around the world, pipeline safety and security are immediate concerns, both for industry and government – and GE can help.
Maintaining procedures on paper and tracking actions manually is labor intensive, costly, inefficient and risky. With a greater focus on safety and compliance, it’s time to reduce costs and minimize risks by choosing proven electronic processes – used widely in many other industries.
The GE Intelligent Control Room Management solution offers a proven system of Electronic Standard Operating Procedures (eSOPs), Change Management and Alarm Response Management that layers on top of your existing SCADA infrastructure.
Wellhead Monitoring and Control
Our wellhead monitoring and control solution use our robust PAC8000 Remote Terminal Unit (RTU), which enables you to monitor, diagnose and maintain your utility assets—even in the most hazardous environments. In addition, you can leverage the capabilities of our SIL 2 functional safety system, which delivers reliable control and safety on a common platform, and the ability to combine multiple wells for maximum efficiency and production optimisation.
Tank and Farm Terminals
The processing, transporting, and storing of crude oil or refined petroleum products in tank farm and terminal operations entail custody transfers of partner and commingled stock, significant volumes of data from various sources, and blending complexities. As these bulk liquids are loaded and offloaded, there is a large transfer of high value, which makes it imperative for oil and gas companies to efficiently manage their inventory and maximise return on investment.
Enabling increased measurement accuracy and process control
At Novotek, we understand your need to optimise tank farm and terminal operations with accurate and timely information, including temperature, pressure, density and viscosity measurements. Proven in the oil and gas industry, our reliable, ruggedised solution encompasses advanced process control, powerful visualisation, and integrated work process management capabilities—enabling you to continuously monitor and automatically manage the critical parameters of your inventory.
Furthermore, the seamless integration of our solutions with other terminal automation systems and functions enables you to improve business processes such as order taking, shipment scheduling, customer billing, tank stock management, and maintenance planning. As a result, you can proactively coordinate service delivery for increased overall efficiency and reduced costs for greater return on investment.
