THE FIRST MIDSTREAM-SPECIFIC, OPERATOR LED FORUM FOCUSED ON RAPIDLY TRANSLATING ACCURATE FIELD DATA INTO MORE PROFITABLE BUSINESS DECISIONS
Regardless of market conditions the driving down of operational costs, improving safety and security and more precisely controlling flow to increase revenue are crucial challenges facing pipeline and facility operators. At a time of falling commodity prices, never has the role of automation and efficient data management been so critical.
To fully leverage the benefits of automation, operators need to benchmark the functionality, reliability and costs of SCADA and DCS systems, communication and measurement devices, control room software and PLCs to design an effective and secure network to speed up the process of gathering field data for the control room, business departments and revenue allocations.
However despite years of requests, midstream automation, SCADA, instrumentation, measurement and control professionals still require a vendor-neutral forum, facilitated and led by midstream operators in which they can share best practices and benchmark the cost-benefits of instrumentation on the market.Welcome To The First Operator-Led Congress To Focus On Analyzing Automation Strategies Specific To The Midstream Industry
The inaugural Midstream Automation, Instrumentation & Control Congress 2015 will deliver 20+ operator case studies from communication strategies for remote locations and security standards to alarm management and leak detection. Speakers will unveil how to integrate new RTUs, PLCs and measurement devices with legacy systems, how to select and design a control system with the latest SCADA and DCS and how to ensure HMI meets PHMSA regulations. Throughout, discussions will focus on how to turn investment in automation into measurable improvements in safety, security, flow control and operational efficiency.
