PI Coresight was renamed PI Vision in 2017
Marathon Oil has been using “cool” new OSIsoft products like PI AF and PI Coresight on high Return on Investment (ROI) projects throughout the US. This presentation will feature traditional Production Operations well monitoring in the Piceance Asset Team in Grand Junction, Colorado, and a recent innovative Proof of Concept utilizing PI Coresight in the drilling line of business in our EagleFord Asset south of San Antonio. The Production Operations project in the Piceance Asset utilizes PI WebParts, Coresight, and Coresight for iPad to replace graphics from the Wonderware SCADA system, due to ease of use. The drilling Proof of Concept uses PI Coresight to find sub-surface problems with “stick slip” that were previously undetectable, and this project when implemented across the US is projected to have very large returns on minimal investment.
