PI Coresight was renamed PI Vision in 2017
An Oil & Gas operator are faced with many industry challenges and ENI Petroleum is trying to make the best use of available technology. The OSIsoft PI System infrastructure is a key component of ENI's Digital Oilfield solution which supports field surveillance and production optimization. The latest release of PI Asset Framework (PI AF) is helping ENI to reach higher levels of quality and providing a better solution both in terms of functionality and sustainability. Now it is easy to automate the creation of Event Frames to represent well and equipment downtimes, well tests, and other various events happening in the field. Also, the scalability of our system has increased thanks to Asset Based Analytics which is used to create main KPIs and alarm conditions using PI AF templates, rather than manual PI Calculations. The power of PI AF is then coupled with PI System visualization tools, in particular PI Coresight 2014 which engineers are using for ad-hoc capabilities to view assets based on templates.
