PDO launches new sys­tem to curb out­put losses

Muscat Daily - - BUSINESS -

Petroleum De­vel­op­ment Oman (PDO) an­nounced that it has launched a new elec­tri­cal fault man­age­ment sys­tem (EFMS) to curb pro­duc­tion losses from the power fail­ure.

‘A new user-friendly EFMS has been launched to help in re­duc­ing the loss of pro­duc­tion from power fail­ures. The ap­pli­ca­tion makes it sim­pler to re­port faults and al­lows for more de­tailed scru­tiny of break­downs,’ PDO said in the lat­est edi­tion of its monthly news­let­ter Al Fa­hal.

The new EFMS tracks all out­ages, mon­i­tors oil and gas de­fer­ment and vis­ually dis­plays the fault re­porter’s key per­for­mance in­di­ca­tors (KPIs). The new EFMS dash­board also al­lows users to carry out de­tailed anal­y­sis with the live data on the sys­tem to save time and ef­fort, thereby en­abling in­no­va­tion and ro­bust de­ci­sion mak­ing.

Com­ment­ing on the ap­pli­ca­tion, which is aligned with Ni­bras in terms of the re­port­ing of oil and gas de­fer­ment fig­ures, Salim al Haddabi, cor­po­rate func­tional elec­tri­cal dis­ci­pline head at PDO, said, “The new EFMS is a great en­abler for keep­ing de­tailed out­age records and in-depth anal­y­sis with the aim of en­sur­ing the power flow to our fa­cil­i­ties is main­tained,” .

PDO’s power in­tegrity and ven­dor lead Hu­maid al Omairi, said, “The new en­hanced EFMS is a big im­prove­ment on the ex­ist­ing sys­tem. It comes with new fea­tures that make elec­tri­cal fault re­port­ing user-friendly with de­tailed anal­y­sis ca­pa­bil­i­ties and con­sis­tency in re­port­ing elec­tri­cal out­ages.

“This will help us to set up a mit­i­ga­tion plan for each fail­ure and re­duce the oil and gas de­fer­ment that may oc­cur as a re­sult.”
