Remote workers can collaborate using mobile devices with ABB’s versatile new cloud-based visualization system, ABB Ability Wellhead Manager, which supports smarter teamwork, enhanced efficiencies and lower costs for oil and gas operators of all sizes.
Watch this video as Darren Schultz, regional manager at the ABB oil and gas group out of Calgary provides a brief introduction to the platform:
The new ABB system, based on SCADA, allows both large operators and small start-ups to gather information about their onshore upstream assets.
The management software is cloud-based, so operators can gain insights about their production assets anywhere in the world. Remote workers can connect in real-time – supporting enhanced teamwork and productivity for optimal results.
By providing immediate access to data, alarms and call out notifications, the software is also said to reduce downtime and risk. In this way, operators can proactively prevent issues, predict productivity and easily scale up or down as necessary.
The system also supports better decision making, with field production data digitally gathered and visualized using a progressive web application. It includes clear dashboards, insights and analytics.
Wellhead Manager is a subscription service, so operators only pay for the service that they use, without having to make use of capital to purchase.
