Real time control

Majors back Knowledge Reservoir’s technology transfer initiative. Cimarron Software’s work for NASA to be adapted to upstream control centers.

Following a successful evaluation on behalf of a group of majors, Knowledge Reservoir has determined that Cimarron Software Services’ real time monitoring and control solutions have applications in oil and gas production hubs and real-time operations centers. This has resulted in an alliance between Cimarron and Knowledge Reservoir which is to provide integration and implementation services and subject matter experts. Alliance partner Cimarron boasts a 29 year history of real time systems engineering and integration. Cimarron contributed to the design and implementation of NASA’s mission control facilities for the space shuttle and international space station.

Cimarron’s commercial off-the-shelf real time systems are an alternative to proprietary systems and custom programming. This approach is said to ease deployment of remote operations and sustainable control centers. Knowledge Reservoir CEO Ivor Ellul noted that, ‘The new solution leverages data across projects, maintenance and production, connecting information to subject matter and domain experts.’ Ellul was encouraged to report that the real-time data solution has been adopted by ‘one of the leading majors.’ More from
