Midstream Oil and Gas

Convert Midstream Challenges into Opportunities with Digitalization

When it comes to reliable data at the edge,
there is no need to compromise

The Midstream Segment is responsible for continuous, safe, reliable, and compliant operations even while addressing demand pressures, environmental concerns, theft and cybersecurity threats. Your digitalization strategy should effectively serve this goal. A well-executed digitalization strategy significantly improves Midstream Segment business performance in terms of asset reliability, operational efficiency, security, product quality and work safety.

Stratus improves reliability and availability of the Midstream Segment infrastructure by offering simple, protected, autonomous Edge Computing platforms that advance operational efficiencies and ensure continuous access to data across any environment.

Customer Success Story
ftServer Ensures System Uptime at Columbia Pipeline Group

Columbia Pipeline Group relies on Stratus to help ensure the availability of their infrastructure that transports natural gas to a wide variety of industries. These include hospitals, manufacturing, as well as households. There is an ftServer  at each compressor station (every 50-100 miles) to provide the HMI capability for the operators. This allows them to do their job and keep the facility running due to overall system uptime.

Edge Computing Platforms for the Oil & Gas Industry

Digitalization means using new digital technology such as improvements in SCADA, HMI, Edge Computing, Data, Analytics, and Artificial Intelligence to increase revenue and find value-producing opportunities. Improved reliability and reduced downtime depend on the platform that deploys these applications. This is where Stratus excels and can help.

The Benefits of Stratus to the Midstream Segment

Simple

Ease of Management – Deploying your solutions on Stratus platforms is as easy as installing an image of your application, especially if you have multiple instances. No field IT support is required on site – this is important especially if the physical locations of your solution are in harsh and remote areas.
Faster Commissioning time – Once your Midstream applications are complete, tested and ready to run, you can easily and quickly install the Stratus Edge Computing platform within your environment. FATs and SATs can be completed faster using Stratus platforms than if you used typical industrial computers or servers.

Protected

Industrial Grade and Intrinsically Safe – Midstream solutions installed at the Edge are in remote and austere locations. You will need a dependable platform that will not fail. Stratus ztC Edge uses a compact fan-less configuration that can be wall or DIN rail mounted, rated at –40 to 60 deg C, 10 to 95% humidity, with 5-500 Hz vibration. Shock: 50G, 11 ms (IEC 60068-2-27), Class I Division 2 (CID2) certified.
Enhanced Security – A big concern is cyber security and theft of intellectual property. Stratus uses a host-based firewall to blacklist or whitelist, restricts USB ports to help prevent the spread of malware.

Autonomous

Greater Visibility – With monitoring of SSD, application and guest OS, OPC UA Support, you can embed all these diagnostics into your applications seamlessly.
System Health and Support – Monitor health 24×7, set thresholds and receive alerts, review logs, run predictive failure analysis, and automatically update and manage patches — all of which enhances the total reliability of your solution.
Remote Management & Service – Stratus provides a cost effective and efficient management of assets in the Midstream Segment, from multi-node to multi-site installation. Stratus platforms create an inventory of all Stratus assets, detects all platforms and determines status, health, configuration, and content of each node. The autonomous monitoring environment identifies and releases software patches and updates, backs-up and restores individual machines, and predicts failure and recovery.
