Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Marathon Oil is a petroleum and natural gas exploration and production company that produces 438,000 barrels of oil per day. As commodities prices have fallen in recent years, it's more important than ever for this Fortune 500 company to optimize every asset and do more with less. Using the combination of the PI System and SAP HANA®, Marathon Oil: combined OT and IT data for a complete view of the organization, substantially reduced data preparation time and workload, quickly provided operators and engineers with critical insights, and optimized oil field production to increase profitability.
At its plant in Bassens, France, Michelin manufactures the high-tech synthetic elastomers for its tires. In the past, Michelin's engineers struggled to track equipment in real time, which is critical for reducing off-spec production and resource waste. With the PI System, Michelin was able to develop easy-to-use tools for plant operators to track complex processes and keep them within optimal parameters. Efficiency improvements driven by the PI System saved the company €4 million in less than a year, and enabled the plant to recover from a 2,000-ton disruption in material production within six months.
Headquartered in Budapest, Hungary, the MOL Group is a leading Central and Eastern European oil and gas company. Over its 75-year history, the MOL Group has expanded to employ over 30,000 people across its facilities in over 40 countries. In the last 18 years, OSIsoft's PI System has played an increasingly important role in the company's rapid development. At OSIsoft's recent 2015 EMEA Users Conference, Tibor Komroczki, Head of Process Information and Automation, spoke about the evolution of the company's use of the PI System and, in particular, the crucial function the PI System's unified data infrastructure and Asset Framework (AF) have played in standardizing downstream activities across multiple sites.
The Municipal Water and Sewage Company Inc. (MPWiK) in Wrocław is one of the largest municipal water and sewage utilities providers in Poland. It has been operating since 1871, and has grown into two water treatment plants, 2,000 km of water network and 1500 km of sewer network, that together serve over 630,000 residents. There are approximately 60,000 water meters that monitor water flow and pressure across that network to prevent pressure increases and decreases that can lead to pipe breaks and leaks. To reduce faults on the network, lower costs and improve customer satisfaction, MPWiK turned to the PI System to take a predictive approach by integrating meter data with IT/OT data.
Research campuses present some of the biggest challenges in facilities management. For facilities managers maintaining optimal conditions, such as temperature, lighting, and energy usage, can mitigate utilities costs, and be the difference between a failed experiment and new discoveries that can revolutionize health, sciences, or engineering.
Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Noble Energy is a global oil and natural gas exploration company. Noble has over 1.4 billion barrels of oil equivalent in reserves and a production rate equivalent to 400,000 barrels of oil per day, landing it squarely at number 703 on the Fortune 500 list. With a reserve mixture of petroleum, natural gas, and natural gas liquids; Noble has deep water drilling sites and shale/unconventional exploration locations around the world. Initially, Noble installed stand-alone PI System implementations across its sites. However, to drive efficiency and grow, Noble needed to go another route.
