Oil & Gas

Greater Insight for Plant Operations

Extend the value of your PI System for greater insight, contextual relevance, data availability, enhanced analytics, and automated reporting.

Enhancing the PI System for Operational Excellence

Leading oil and gas companies across the production and delivery spectrum rely on the OSIsoft PI System to capture real-time operational data from their equipment. Process Innovations delivers the expert consulting services and advanced visualization, analytics, and data integration tools to help them make the most of their data.

Upstream More than 85% of the world’s top oil and gas companies use the PI System. It sits at the center of digital oilfield operations supporting oil and gas production systems, but also supports maintenance and remote operations functions.

Midstream The PI System helps producers gather, process, and deliver nearly 50% of the world’s natural gas and liquids to end users. High quality PI data facilitates not only rotating equipment reliability but also tracking for performance, gas quality, storage, processing, leak detection and inventory management.

Downstream PI System users produce more than 80% of transportation fuels in the Americas. Real-time operational PI data integration, applications, and analytics help them improve their energy usage, address yields, mitigate hydrocarbon losses, and optimize their fuels value chain.

Process Innovations’ Process Plugins provide advanced visualizations for efficiently managing pumps, turbines, compressors, and other critical equipment required for oil and gas production and delivery.
