Long-term contract requirements and increased production goals require LNG producers to extend equipment runtimes thus minimizing input costs. Failure to meet reliability targets or a missed shipment can result in penalties and significant financial consequences. Emerson’s Smart Wireless technology links intelligent field devices to the control system without wires, allowing producers to minimize commissioning time and installation costs. Intelligent field devices continuously run real-time monitoring and diagnostics on the production process and storage. Predictive maintenance software alerts operations and maintenance personnel when issues are detected, enabling prompt correction before they affect plant operations.
DeltaV and DeltaV SIS provide control and safety systems which provide operators with the insight needed to successfully operate the plant. On Site Asset Specialists (OAS) provide reliability services, advanced training, and comprehensive spares rationalization programs. Producers can access a network of experts and manufacturing capabilities for global project support on the world stage or locally for on-site commissioning and start-up assistance. Spartan's solutions predict equipment downtime and plan and execute proactive maintenance strategies, allowing our customers to optimize production and increase reliability and throughput by up to 3%.
