Oil and Gas Production, Processing and Refining


How you apply your engineering, operations and management skills to the complex problems in your industry is key to the value you bring. Count on our solutions for the tools, talent and domain knowledge that will amplify your contribution.

The price volatility and the shifts in demand encourage facilities in the oil and gas industry to focus on “sweating the assets” – safely increasing the business output in an environmentally sound manner.

AVEVA & the Internet of Things


For years you have heard about what the digital revolution can do for oil and gas production and have seen some successes, but now the IIoT provides a missing link that moves the hydrocarbons industries to a new level of connectivity.

In upstream oil and gas production, this new level means extending the life of the wells and operating more efficiently. In upstream processing it means operating more reliably and more efficiently. And in refining and petrochemical operations it means improving reliability and efficiency as well, but it also means staying competitive by finding new flexibility to process a greater variety of crude oils. The ability to switch from gasoline to diesel fuel production quickly, for example, can have significant bottom-line benefits.

Within each industry segment, we help customers identify what we call “value-leaks” and articulate and implement the operations improvements needed to close them.

Business Intelligence/EMI


Rich analytics enable informed decision making that optimizes and improves plant operations. Real-time analytics reflect actual operating conditions and include drill down capabilities to uncover root causes and allow “what if” scenarios and workforce collaboration, establishing and enforcing best practices.

Production Energy Management


Easy-to-use point solutions maximize energy performance and deliver energy savings of up to 7 percent. Schneider Electric can also design and implement holistic solutions that establish an energy culture that can maximize and accelerate energy performance for increased savings of up to 15 percent.

Dedicated availability solutions for Oil and Gas



Stratus is the modern, proven and reliable choice for oil and gas providers to deliver a complete always-on oil and gas pipeline system with a solution that is cost effective and delivers the efficiencies oil and gas companies demand today.

With simple installation, a heritage of providing continuous availability, ease of service and a lifespan aligned with the needs of operational systems, Stratus solutions provide a holistic approach to delivering remote, virtualized applications without data loss, or the need for on-site IT expertise.

When combined with virtualization expertise, operational system knowledge, strong partnerships with leading providers such as AVEVA and an understanding of the increasing importance of emerging capabilities (such as analytics) driven by the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), the result is cost-effective deployment, increased efficiency and the returns demanded by today’s economic environment.

Today, the oil and gas industry is going through drastic changes, as a result of a drop in prices that appears to be the new norm for the foreseeable future. These new conditions have created a corresponding shift in priorities, where oil and gas companies can no longer afford to concentrate primarily on expansion and growth initiatives, but instead must reduce costs, improve the efficiency of operations, and protect existing infrastructure. In short, they must do all they can to get the most out of their current resources and attempt to maximize profitability. The fastest path to cutting costs and improving efficiency is to eliminate failures, and proactively prevent equipment and pipeline downtime (and related losses). Advanced technology solutions from Stratus Technologies—solutions capable of improving scalability, uptime, predictive maintenance, and more—are a proven way for oil and gas companies to achieve these results.

Stratus has a 30-year track record of preventing downtime and ensuring maximum return on assets. Our flagship ftServer® integrates the key technologies of virtualization, fault tolerance (availability in excess of 99.999 percent), and real-time data capture in a single solution.
