We all know that our biggest challenge with managing assets in the oil and gas industry is “what we don’t know”.
Whether it’s wells, facilities or pipelines, the greatest achievement is understanding our assets and knowing where they are, how they’re linked – and if you’re lucky – you might even know some specific details about them.
With Cenozon’s pipeline integrity risk software, our clients are more confident in supporting their pipeline integrity management programs by having more involvement from all business units and standardizing their processes across all operating areas.
With our Pipeline Integrity Risk Manger (PIRM) software, our clients simply build connectivity models that most accurately reflect their operations, which gives them an understanding of their systems or networks. Think of it like the brains, or the command center – where all information flows out to all other departments and stakeholders. Communications between the field, operations and head office are streamlined because it’s easy to identify when and where things are changing in your pipeline network.
By Associating all wells (operating/suspended/abd), pipelines (all licensed & unlicensed segments), and facilities, the users gain the greatest visual understanding of flow relationships: which wells flow into which gathering pipelines, and which pipelines contribute to the numerous wells’ production into group lines – all the way to facilities. At any point in time, when the system identifies a pipeline not seeing production (whether it’s from a well or another pipeline upstream), it flags it.
Knowing and understanding your assets in detail enables you to quickly identify no-flows, which can result in millions of dollars saved year over year.
