High-profile accidents refocus inspection and maintenance regimes

A number of high profile explosions in recent times have put renewed emphasis on the inspection and maintenance technologies and regimes used by the oil and gas industry. Eugene McCarthy investigates

Adaptive process control delivers greater profit

While there have been significant benefits over the past 10 years with sustained value tools, they have not been able to solve the whole problem in an integrated, systematic way, says Rob Howard

Flowmeters reduce maintenance and capital costs

Adjusts to variations in fluid properties and make dynamic density measurements not possible with other mass flowmeters

Integrated control and safety solutions aid optimum reservoir recovery

Demand for modern, integrated control systems is being fuelled by investments as diverse as floating production, storage and offloading vessels and petrochemical complexes
