Following a successful pilot, RasGas has signed a letter of with GE to apply its asset performance management (APM) solution across its liquid natural gas operations in Qatar. The APM embeds GE’s Predix big data/advanced analytics solution and targets reliability, equipment maintenance and productivity.
GE’s chief digital officer, Bill Ruh said, ‘APM solutions meet a current gap in the LNG industry where raw data is currently isolated and at different locations. With Predix, information from several years of operation in various locations can now be integrated to strengthen predictive and corrective capabilities.’
RasGas’ use of Predix is claimed as the ‘world’s first and only’ industrial data and analytics solution for LNG. The Predix cloud solution is projected to extend the life of RasGas assets and lower operating costs.
