ABB Ability™ automated data collection

ABB Ability™ provides a full-range of digital solutions that help oil and gas companies manage complexity. ABB Ability™ for oil and gas reduce operational costs by 30% and commissioning time by 50% — all while driving safety improvements through automated data collection and analysis. The reduced commissioning time provided by ABB Ability™ is especially beneficial in arctic regions where the installation season is shorter.

Manually collecting and analyzing vast amounts of data can result in data inaccuracy, inconsistencies and incompleteness, which can trigger risk and cost implications. ABB Ability™ solutions for oil and gas turn data into insights and ultimately into action in the physical world, thus providing improved efficiency for the customer.

ABB Ability™ System 800xA High Integrity fire and gas solution

A main feature of the ABB safety systems, offering fire and gas protection technology constitutes an integral part of System 800xA High Integrity. System 800xA can integrate both addressable and non-addressable fire and gas detectors into a complete safety system. This enhances functionality, increases safety and considerably simplifies the engineering process.

The solution solves two of the biggest challenges currently facing the oil and gas industry: a) how to keep up with the rapid changes in automation and information technologies, both of which traditionally require the presence of highly specialized engineers on site, and b) how to eliminate the need for the costly deployment of these specialists at remote offshore and onshore facilities without jeopardizing productivity and safety.

ABB Ability™ System 800xA Simulator

ABB Ability System 800xA Simulator is a scalable solution in system size, functionality and control system connectivity. Continuous pressures to reduce costs are balanced by a company’s social responsibility to protect its people, property, environment, and the surrounding community from harm. While control systems automate large sections of most plants, human error remains a critical contributor to most accidents.

The cost-effective 800xA Simulator, together with a dynamic process model, enables training for operators and testing of control logic, which reduces start-up time, reduces unplanned shutdowns, assures longer life and lower lifecycle costs. Our vision is to ensure our customers’ production acitivities in ever longer, deeper and colder water, without compromising safety.

Studies and front-end engineering and design

The development of a robust and cost-effective Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) package is vital to the successful delivery of a capital investment project. This is especially critical for harsh and remote environments such as the Arctic. ABB can provide experienced project and functional engineers to take your project from the initial concept through to a fully developed front-end engineering package complete with an installed cost estimate, which can be used to confidently sanction your project.

Our aim is firstly to arrive at the safest, simplest and most cost-effective plan, then put it into practice in the most effective way possible. The FEED package produced forms a firm foundation for later stages of the project, with no unpleasant surprises.

Power from shore

Traditionally, offshore platforms generate their own electricity by burning fossil fuels to run onboard gas turbines and/or diesel-powered generating units, resulting in local pollution to the environment. As we move operations into the environmentally sensitive arctic regions, it's important to lower our emissions.

ABB's solution is to supply offshore installations with electricity from the mainland using a power cable transmission system. By replacing costly onboard electrical generating systems burning natural gas or diesel fuel, a power-from-shore solution can eliminate platform CO2 emissions entirely. It also increases available space and reduces weight on the platform, and improves the working environment. In addition, cable systems are easier to maintain than generators.

Safety systems

Delivering excellent process safety performance is necessary for any operating company in the hazardous process industries, especially in the Arctic. We support full technical authoring of safety cases, completing specialist sections, providing data for reporting requirements, helping to prepare for regulatory inspections etc. Companies need good risk identification and assessment processes, comprehensive risk controls and reliable monitoring of these controls.

ABB helps to identify shortfalls and put necessary improvements in place. We have expert knowledge across all aspects of process safety, engineering specialists to help implement solutions, rigorous processes to complete comprehensive studies efficiently, and an operational heritage to develop pragmatic solutions that reduce risk.

Maintenance and reliability

ABB offers a number of services to improve the cost-effectiveness of maintenance. Regulation, aging assets, poor reliability and skills shortages drive many manufacturing companies to reassess their focus on all components of integrity management including the assets, systems and people. ABB brings a well respected and independent approach to any stage of the improvement process. Special measures must be taken for the Arctic.

ABB's pRIME (process Reliability and Integrity Management Excellence) programme combines leading methodologies and tools with expert technical judgement to initially identify and then deliver integrity improvements. We prioritise the key areas to address, rather than unnecessarily assessing areas with no scope for beneficial improvement.

Flow assurance and production optimization

Oil and ­gas ­fields ­become­ more marginal ­as they mature and­ when reservoir ­and­ fluid­ characteristics ­become more ­complex. In ­turn, ­newer ­fields ­are­ typically ­located in ­more ­remote­ and ­harsh­ environments, such as the Arctic.

Enhancing asset availability and utilization through better plant operations and maintenance has become one of the dominant sources of improved profitability in manufacturing industries, especially for process segments.

ABB provides asset management solutions that present real-time asset information seamlessly and in the proper context to operations, maintenance, engineering and management. ABB focuses on the actual functionality and performance of the asset unit, not only on simple error messages from device diagnostics.
