Digitally Enabling the Oil & Gas Industry to Comply and Operate Safely

Learn more about this breakthrough digital solution for the oil and gas industry:

In the moments following the Deepwater Horizon oil rig disaster, the initial response teams were unable to effectively troubleshoot the Blowout Preventer (BOP) due to a lack of understanding of the final state of the control system. This lack of knowledge greatly hindered the teams from acting in the most critical moments. On the 29th of April 2019, The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) mandated that any oil rigs drilling in the Gulf of Mexico must actively monitor the subsea BOP and control system in real-time. In addition, the new regulations required that all companies must track, trend and report on equipment failures, abnormalities and overall system health. By utilizing the OSIsoft PI System™ and various solutions from the OSIsoft Partner EcoSphere – including HxGN SDx® Operations and j5 Operations Management Solutions – Deepwater Subsea LLC has developed the Janus24™ real-time monitoring platform, an industry first solution that combines real-time data, compliance verification inspections, and asset lifecycle management in a data ecosystem that allows oil and gas companies and drilling contractors to operate safely and in compliance with federal regulations. This case study highlights that implementing value adding solutions from the OSIsoft Partner EcoSphere can positively impact real oil and gas industry problems, for example helping to decrease operational risk and increase regulatory compliance.
