Performance Monitoring using PI Vision

Set up PI AF and PI Vision for monitoring process and equipment performance on multiple assets in the UKCS

/01

the challenge

A new operator on the UKCS has taken on multiple assets from other majors and wished to set up consolidated realtime performance monitoring.  Their engineers knew what was required but lacked the capacity in-house to set up the system.

/02

what we did

We quickly understood the spec and immediately set to work configuring PI AF and PI Vision.  We built a combination of fixed and templated dashboards, including Compressor Performance Curves, process operating limits alerts.

/03

the outcome

Discipline engineers now have much faster access to live information and can provide realtime support to offshore teams without having to access the Control Systems. It is also helping to move towards more proactive operations because engineers are more aware of equipment performance and can act on signs of degradation early.
