Three things have always been important to planners and operators of process plant systems: plant system security, equipment loads and system availability. Now, with so many new technological advancements within oil and gas, the sector is facing even more challenges. From new exploration and production methods for alternative power generation to the electrification of energy delivery, cost containment, efficiency challenges, unfamiliar environments and safety risk are still in play but are also affecting the financial side of the industry. Energy companies know that they have to focus on improving efficiency when it comes to achieving growth and maintaining a long-term competitive edge. Companies also have to focus on controlling costs, improving controls and managing risks.
