Current automation and system integration in the upstream market is failing to meet the growing technological needs of the market space. A retiring workforce, volatility in oil prices, depreciation of conventional drilling and the need to digitize the oilfield is challenging the industry to break existing paradigms. Inspiration from other industries is driving truly innovative solutions to an industry which is more than fifty years behind.
In this webinar, learn how RTI is looking to redefine the industry with a radically advanced approach to automation which safely and seamlessly integrates humans, existing mechanical equipment, machine learning and AI. RTI Connext provides a technology which enables a purely data-centric approach versus a traditional hardware solution.
A data-centric approach enables the following system qualities:
- Standardized data-model with well-defined behavior.
- Provide third-party integration through well-defined data models and Quality of Service on data.
- Provides a clear delineation between process automation and machine control.
- Frees all market segment sectors from vendor lock-in.
This approach has an immediate impact on rig operations by reducing complexity in system integration, enforces best practices through automation, and dramatically improves safety guaranteeing safe consistent operations.
