Unifying Predictive Analytics and Real-time Process Optimization for Oil & Gas
一家领先的石油和天然气公司以及 GE 最值得信赖和创新的合作伙伴之一，无法整合独立的设备问题检测能力。由于维护计划问题和过时的软件系统导致计划外停机，该公司正在亏损。他们认为，精心设计的 IT 资产组合将产生比他们更强大的洞察力，使他们能够使用实时洞察力和预测分析从陆上设施监控海上设备。
GE 的设计思维团队与石油公司的团队密切合作，共同创建了一个能够统一能力的系统。为了更深入地了解公司的具体需求，GE 的设计思维团队参观了公司的一个设施，在那里他们演示了原型解决方案，并从潜在产品的最终用户那里获得了宝贵的反馈。除了这次现场访问之外，GE 设计思维团队还安排了每周与公司的电话会议，以不断寻求他们对原型开发的反馈。从这个意义上说，通用电气的设计思维过程是真正的共同创造过程，其中潜在产品的最终用户对产品的特性和发展战略有直接和有影响力的影响。

Taking Oil and Gas Exploration to the Next Level
DownUnder GeoSolutions (DUG) wanted to increase computing performance by 5 to 10 times to improve seismic processing. The solution must build on current architecture software investments without sacrificing existing software and scale computing without scaling IT infrastructure costs.
Remote Wellhead Monitoring
Each wellhead was equipped with various sensors and meters that needed to be monitored and controlled from a central HMI, often miles away from the assets in the field. Redundant solar and wind generators were installed at each wellhead to support the electrical needs of the pumpstations, temperature meters, cameras, and cellular modules. In addition to asset management and remote control capabilities, data logging for remote surveillance and alarm notifications was a key demand from the customer. Terra Ferma’s solution needed to be power efficient, reliable, and capable of supporting high-bandwidth data-feeds. They needed a multi-link cellular connection to a central server that sustained reliable and redundant monitoring and control of flow meters, temperature sensors, power supply, and event-logging; including video and image files. This open-standard network needed to interface with the existing SCADA and proprietary network management software.
Refinery Saves Over $700,000 with Smart Wireless
One of the largest petroleum refineries in the world is equipped to refine various types of crude oil and manufacture various grades of fuel from motor gasoline to Aviation Turbine Fuel. Due to wear and tear, eight hydrogen valves in each refinery were leaking, and each cost $1800 per ton of hydrogen vented. The plant also had leakage on nearly 30 flare control hydrocarbon valves. The refinery wanted a continuous, online monitoring system that could catch leaks early, minimize hydrogen and hydrocarbon production losses, and improve safety for maintenance.
