ChallengesYou see oil prices increase as production slows down, but demand still grows as global supply decreases. You weigh the environmental cost of optimising safety, security, and reliability, while health, safety, and environmental regulations impact your bottom line. Still, you seek intelligent field devices to drive control, speed, and maintenance monitoring.
Our solutionsSchneider Electric's experts make critical oil and gas power available, reliable, and efficient with global solutions including complete e-Houses, plus Energy Monitoring & Control solutions including harmonic mitigation. Pipeline management, power and control are secured with Transport & Storage business solutions, while the Intelligent Power & Motor Control Centre (iPMCC) prevents pump and fan breakdowns. We ensure total remote control of pump-jacks/PCP/ESP with our Onshore Scattered Oilfield business solution. All of our solutions comply with security requirements.
- Oil prices and production shortage, drives upstream investment in harsh environment, recovery on existing, unconventional resources, more projects, larger, more complex.
- Environment constraints increase power: higher short circuit levels and rated voltage requirements.
- Safety, Security, Reliability and environmental impact remains a key concern.
- Growing Gas Demand increases number of LNG applications.
- Increasing demand for local content: National Companies higher & mix role with GOC.
- More intelligent field devices to drive control, speed and maintenance monitoring.
- Global resource shortage: material, equipment and manpower costs increasing (tough competition for resources and skills).
- Impact of health & safety and environment regulations (CO2 capture) drives demand for more maintenance and services, and investments to reduce the sulphur of the gasoline (Refineries).
- Safety requirement applying to all equipment.
