OIL MOVEMENTS-1 AUTOMATION OF OIL MOVEMENT SYSTEMS PREVENTS MISTAKES, SAVES MONEY
Myke King Whitehouse Consulting Southampton, U.K. Experiences illustrate how oil movement and storage (OM&S) system automation can be justified and its benefits proven. From such examples, refiners can determine sources of project benefits and how project costs can be reduced without causing equivalent reductions in benefits. A number of examples also demonstrate the importance of designing an integrated information system, as opposed to a stand-alone OM&S system.
