It’s a gas for Honeywell Featured


Over a hundred Honeywell process control users have held their annual users conference on the Gold Coast.

Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) used the occasion to announce Digital Suites for Oil and Gas, a set of software and services that the company says can help oil and gas producers boost production performance by 3% to 5% while improving operational safety.

HPS says the suite “allows oil and gas producers to turn data into digital intelligence that helps operators make critical decisions faster by capturing, managing and analysing the right production information at the right time.”

The product suite is a part of a general move by HPS to integrate its many disparate monitoring and control products, widely used by mining and refining companies around the world. It is also a continuation of a move to the collection and analysis of vastly increased data streams being generated by equipment at these facilities.

“Upstream oil and gas producers tell us they have access to more real-time data than ever. But access to that data alone is not enough to improve performance – they also need digital intelligence to make sense of all the data being collected,” said Ali Raza, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Process Solutions.

“By using these new tools, operators can get better productivity, higher uptime and more efficient remote operations, and they can produce a return on investment in as little as six months.”

HPS said it has leveraged its extensive experience in the oil and gas and related industries to develop this unique suite of solutions specifically designed for upstream operations. Digital Suites for Oil and Gas is designed to ensure that safety procedures perform as designed, operators are fully trained, alarms are managed and enforced, and production performance is instantly available to detect and mitigate unexpected events.

“The products in the suite make collaboration through remote operations a reality,” said Raza, “helping improve the safety of personnel, especially as upstream oil and gas production moves farther offshore and environmental conditions grow more risky.”

Digital Suites for Oil and Gas is an integrated offering, with each suite is also available separately.

The six suites are: Operational Data; Digital Suites for Oil & Gas Process Safety; Production Surveillance; Equipment Effectiveness; Production Excellence; and Operational Performance.

HPS says the offerings combine its field-proven technologies with new software and implementation methodologies delivered through its new oil and gas centre of excellence, which was recently established to better serve Honeywell’s customers in the upstream oil and gas industry. Digital Suites for Oil and Gas works with Honeywell’s complete line of integrated control and safety systems, instrumentation, and industrial products, and can be easily integrated into any multi-vendor environment.
