The Longest Continuously Operated Refinery in the U.S.

As blogs have brought self-publishing to individuals and their growth has skyrocketed, the next wave–self-published videos–have arrived and even come to our conservative world of process automation.
YouTube and Google Video are two examples of sites where you can upload your videos to share with the world.
I bring this up because I received an email this morning of a video done by Pennsylvania Cable Network with their PCN Tours series. The 52:35 video features a tour of American Refining Group in Bradford, Pennsylvania in the U.S. They are celebrating 125 years as the United States longest continuously operated refinery.
Take a look at 17:45 and 20:15 and you’ll see Emerson’s DeltaV system in their crude unit control room and reformer control room. It’s great that PlantWeb technology could play a role in their success.
As we continue to move forward in this new age of communications, please let me know if your process automation work is highlighted in one of these newer self-publishing mediums like blogs, podcasts, or videos.
