Condition based monitoring for metering systems
Software deployment in the oil and gas industry covers a wide range of activities such as exploration, production, asset management, monitoring and measurement. In the latter category, software is being widely used in an activity known as condition-based monitoring (CBM).
Measurement SaaS – software as a service
CBM is the software-managed monitoring of processes and assets with a focus on what maintenance activities need to be undertaken and when. It has become an essential component of predictive maintenance strategies. There are a variety of techniques that may be used to monitor conditions. For example, the comparison of live measured variables against thresholds to allow the trending of equipment performance. Another technique is the live calculation of uncertainty that can be used as another performance indicator.
The use of software increases operational efficiency, manages equipment maintenance strategies through deployment of condition based monitoring, reduces costs and assists in the decarbonisation of the operation.
Clients can get value for money by tailoring software solutions to fit the measurement system. Large systems can be covered by less expensive rates for each measurement. The return on investment will be immediate with reduced labour costs, targeted and scheduled maintenance.
