The partnership involves Eigen building process system monitoring, equipment performance monitoring and condition monitoring displays for Chrysaor’s critical mechanical and process equipment and has already delivered improvements in productivity.
Eigen is using its operational technology and engineering expertise in collaboration with Chrysaor technical expertise to build a set of asset overviews with equipment process, performance and condition monitoring graphics from a Chrysaor specific functional design. Deployed rapidly and at minimal cost, the solution incorporates IT functionality in PI Vision that has only recently become available.
With oil companies operating with increasingly lean teams, the solution delivers a complex technical implementation that could not be produced internally due to high workloads and capacity pressures. Time pressures are also creating challenges in terms of briefing requirements around complex technical projects, as Eigen’ CEO, Murray Callander, explains:“This is another good example of solving a time-poverty problem using operations technology. Oil companies are facing challenges that require complicated technical work but lack the time to implement or explain how to do so. We are proud to have been able to help drive productivity benefits in collaboration with Chrysaor.”
Based on Amanda, Lomond (including Erskine Processing Module) and Everest platforms, the project delivery is being rolled out incrementally and is due to be completed in 4Q19.
