Enhanced SCADA system streamlines oil and gas operations

19 August 2014

The new OpenEnterprise release from Emerson is said to offer ease-of-use and expanded device connectivity for communication protocols. User-friendly tools in OpenEnterprise v3 alleviate the pain of operating and managing large installations of RTUs and flow computers.

The latest OpenEnterprise v3 release introduces ‘Action Engine’ technology. An intelligent automation engine that does not require programming or scripting to manage complex sequential control which enables users to gain competitive advantage and increases operator productivity.

The Action Engine’s rapid application development and change management tools enable users to get their new system commissioned quickly and empowers them to make necessary automation changes. 

The template-based design of the software simplifies the process of building the SCADA database, enabling faster well replication and easier management of field installations with a mixture of RTU types.

“The latest OpenEnterprise v3 offers the SCADA market a step change in value when it comes to ease-of-use by offering an open SCADA platform designed to be protocol and RTU agnostic,” explained Craig Llewellyn, president, Emerson Process Management, Remote Automation Solutions. “OpenEnterprise v3 users realise increased operator productivity as new employees save on training time and are able to operate the SCADA system faster.”

OpenEnterprise v3 also offers lifecycle cost savings by an leveraging integrated wireless SCADA architecture. By integrating the WirelessHART instrumentation network along with the Distributed RTU Network, remote oil and gas operations are easier, safer, and more secure.

Unlike traditional SCADA software, OpenEnterprise v3 is not licensed by tag count and consists of scalable software tiers that are fit for applications from local metering to mega intelligent oilfield automation projects that require automation of thousands of wells.
