DCS EZOps Announces Second Release of Augmented Intelligence Platofrom for Oil and Gas 1 400

EZ Ops, the provider of oil and gas operations software that identifies top priorities to produce the cleanest and most profitable hydrocarbons in the world, has announced the second release of its augmented intelligence operations platform with new capabilities for dynamic routing and day scheduling. 

EZ Ops latest platform release helps operators efficiently plan their daily schedule in under three minutes with certainty they are doing highest value work during their shift, with the least drive time and lowest greenhouse gas emissions. Intelligent schedules and routing draw on algorithms that compute millions of internal and external data including production data, inspection schedules, shift duration, temperature, commodity prices, chemical costs and location data. Beta testing of the newly released feature has begun with customers and will continue over the next several months.

EZ Ops new dynamic routing and scheduling equips upstream oil and gas companies to:

  • •Equip operations teams with intelligent suggested schedules to optimize production based on their start and end location for the day, shift duration and form of transportation such as truck or helicopter
  • •Enable field teams to instantly toggle their route between Production-as-Priority Route  which looks at highest possible impact on production, or the Fuel-Efficient Route, which optimizes production impact with the least travel time and greenhouse gas emissions.

“This latest release of our new platform equips operations teams with dynamic routing and schedule optimization to complete the highest value activities in the field each day,” explained Brandon Ambrose, CEO and Founder of EZ Ops. “Decisions in the field have become highly complex with operations teams needing to juggle production, compliance and cost management goals. With more data coming at them every day, operators need intelligent scheduling and route guidance to make the best use of their time, consistently.” 

This latest release is part of the ongoing development of the new oil and gas operations platform. Beta customers include many of Canada’s most efficient and profitable producers. 

“The new dynamic routing capabilities gives operations teams the confidence to do the highest value work at the right locations during each shift, without the cognitive overload of computing millions of variables,” explained Nic Lefebvre, Chief Product Officer and Co-founder. “This release is especially valuable to oil and gas companies right now as lean operations teams are being asked to do more at more assets.”

EZ Ops vision is to provide an intelligence platform for operational excellence that becomes an advantage for North America’s producers, with technology that optimizes and informs the best decisions for asset performance. Development continues to run through to 2023.

In June 2021, EZ Ops announced it received $1 million in investment from the Alberta Innovates Clean Resources program to build out a data-driven prioritization engine that draws on AI and machine learning to guide oilfield workers in taking the best action each day to produce the cleanest and most profitable hydrocarbons in the world.

DCS SEW MOVIC 1 400x275

 

When it comes to power transmission and motion control, SEW-EURODRIVE needs no formal introduction. Counted among the industry leaders in drive technology, SEW-EURODRIVE makes drive-based automation its business. SEW-EURODRIVE, founded in 1931, is a global company that specializes in gear motors, frequency inverters, drive systems, industrial gears, and control software. SEW-EURODRIVE products are distinguished by their modular components and customer-centric philosophy. Their modular components can be built in a multitude of configurations, durable gear housings, offer flexible mounting capabilities, and provide advanced electronics that ensure equipment continuously operates efficiently.

Drives & Control Solutions' sibling, Mechatronics Canada, had the opportunity to speak with Shane Carnegie, Electronics Product Manager at SEW-EURODRIVE Canada, to learn more about MOVI-C, a modular automation system that offers a full solution for automation tasks. MOVI-C has been continuously expanding its reach into the mechatronics space, offering an encompassing solution for machine builders and integrators. Below Shane walks us through some of MOVI-C’s unique features and real-world applications.

Can you explain what MOVI-C does?

MOVI-C is an all-in-one modular automation system. Building on the familiar SEW modular gear motors and previous generation inverters, we now have modular inverters, controllers and associated software which ties everything together. For example, you can have a gear box with an AC induction motor, a permanent magnet motor, or a servo motor based on your application requirements. Attached to that we can provide a motor controller which can be mounted in a panel or directly on or near the gear motor. The positioning or velocity control software can be pre-loaded into the motor controller at the factory and all that is required is to send the same standard process data words from your main PLC to the drive system to perform your desired motion. The software interface looks identical no matter what controller or underlying gear motor system is attached.

What are some of the major features that MOVI-C has to offer?
