Prediktor's Apis software used by Statoil as OPC UA gateway
August 17, 2016 - Prediktor AS, a provider of real-time Historian solutions, announced that Statoil has chosen Prediktor’s Apis Software platform as the OPC UA gateway in their OneIMS initiative. The first delivery is to the Johan Sverdrup field. An option for a complete rollout to all Statoil assets is included in the contract.
Statoil is an international energy company with operations in 37 countries. Building on more than 40 years of experience from oil and gas production on the Norwegian continental shelf, Statoil is committed to accommodating the world's energy needs in a responsible manner, applying technology and creating innovative business solutions. Statoil is headquartered in Stavanger, Norway with approximately 22,000 employees worldwide, and is listed on the New York and Oslo stock exchanges.
The overall objective of the delivery is to provide a standardized and unified way of accessing operational data from different assets via enterprise systems - not only standardized on protocol, but also standardized on data semantics. This can be especially challenging in brown-field installations where both non-standard protocols and unplanned- or non-standard semantics can be present.
The Apis Software platform, a high performance time-series data historian and OPC UA mapping tool for creating standardized asset frameworks, fulfills all objectives. Legacy plant systems will be mapped to OPC UA semantic models from companion standards such as S95, PRODML and WITSML
"We believe an OPC UA gateway based on Apis enables enterprises like Statoil to prepare for Industry 4.0, and implement totally new enterprise IT strategies for operational data on Johan Sverdrup and other sites," said Morten Enholm, Executive Vice President of Software at Prediktor.
Since 1995, Prediktor has delivered real-time Historian and IMS solutions based on the Apis software platform. Companies worldwide rely on Apis for real-time data collection, storage, processing and HMI visualization. Apis is a proven and trusted technology that has been used in 1000+ installations. Most of these are mission critical applications within manufacturing industry and Oil & Gas.
