Oman's national refining and petrochemicals company, Orpic formed in 2011 as the integration of four Omani companies. Following this consolidation, Orpic needed to integrate data systems that were siloed in four previously separate operations. Seeking an integrated solution, Orpic chose the PI System as a single source for operational data from all four plants.
In this talk, Orpic will discuss how they implemented the PI System as the central owner of operational and quality data and how they migrated historical data from four enterprises into the PI System. They will also cover benefits that resulted from a unified view of all plants, universal access to plant data, and Lab and ERP data integration. These benefits include: availability of product quality data along with operation parameters, reduced maintenance through predictive and condition-based maintenance, and faster retrieval of historic data.
