FDT Group increases to 60 members
Chevron is the most recent major end user that demonstrates its support for FDT technology by adding its name and resources to the FDT Group. End users have a strategic role in the group as they ensure that the technology continues to meet the needs of their industry. Together with Shell and Saudi Aramco, Chevron will represent the interests and requirements of the Oil & Gas industry.
After attending the recent FDT Technology Seminar in Houston, I now better understand how this technology can provide the significant edge we need to increase the reliability and performance of our operation, says Deon Rae, Technical Team Leader, Process Control Systems, of Chevron. We see FDT Technology becoming an important part of our strategic initiatives. Flavio Tolfo, Managing Director of the FDT Group:
We are very excited to have Chevron join the FDT Group. Their membership shows their interest in FDT Technology, making sure that it continues to meet the needs of Users worldwide, says Flavio Tolfo, Managing Director of the FDT Group. Our plan is to have our membership be a mix of users and suppliers to make certain that we continue to deliver the technology, capability and value that is truly needed in automation today and into the future.
