Transcript

The oil and gas supply chain, at its core, hasn’t changed in decades moving energy from production, to transportation, to processing plants, and finally to consumers.

And oil & gas have been our primary fuels for more than two centuries. But given the current transition to more sustainable forms of energy, many are wondering what changes may lie ahead.

Soon pipeline operators will be broadening their focus to bring new and cleaner products to market, such as hydrogen, biofuels, chemicals, and industrial gases. As we transition to these new energy sources, the two million miles of pipelines throughout the world will continue to be the safest form of energy distribution.

There are however new challenges facing today’s pipeline operators. Mature assets and a tightening regulatory environment make it harder to ensure the safe transportation of products, while minimizing the impact on the environment.

The increasing number of products creates new complexity. And cyber security threats are on the rise, increasing the pressure to maintain reliable, safe data environment and operations. It’s never been more important to successfully manage both the operational and business aspects of energy transportation and storage.

Emerson helps companies operate more responsibly while fulfilling industrial and consumer demands. We will continue to do so through the current energy transition and beyond.

By reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions using model-based engineering tools for more efficient asset design. By promoting safe operations through real-time model-based predictive intelligence simulations and situational awareness.

By protecting the safety of critical assets through reliable and secure control systems that use advanced software to collect data across thousands of miles—validating, visualizing, contextualizing, and delivering real-time operational intelligence. By protecting the environment with software that enables better pipeline integrity management. And by supporting operators with powerful but flexible transaction management and accounting software ensuring their business evolves along with the energy economy.

At Emerson, we see the opportunities that lie ahead for the energy transportation and storage industry. And our solutions will help the industry evolve through the energy transition and beyond with greater safety security and environmental sustainability.
