Terminal Automation Solutions Webinar

Update: A recorded version of this webinar is now available.

Emerson's Mike Stappert

Storage terminals are an integral part of the supply chain for hydrocarbon products to connect producers with consumers. With the vastness of new oil & gas production discoveries brought on by the shale revolution, terminals are increasingly becoming bottlenecked in many parts of the world. This is primarily due to increased customer demand.

Join Emerson’s Mike Stappert on August 10 at 2pm EDT/11am PDT for a webinar on Terminal Automation Solutions. Mike will share how terminal operators can effectively use information and installed assets from their site to improve commercial, logistics, environmental, inventory, blending, and product transfer challenges.

By applying operations management technologies and expertise, Mike will share examples of how to reduce order-to-cash cycle by 35% and improve terminal throughput by 30%.

Mike will provide a closer look at liquid storage terminals, which are designed to receive, store and dispense products. These terminals have three fundamental areas of operation—receipt, storage, and delivery. These movements across the supply chain can occur via marine, truck, rail, and pipelines.

Many terminals still operate with manual workflows, which can lead to manual data entry processes, errors in data, and lag in “order-to-cash” processing. By automating these workflows including terminal infrastructure, operational procedures and commercial management, business planning information can pass efficiently to all operational areas for immediate action.

If you manage a terminal or want to understand these operations and how to improve them, sign up for the webinar. This webinar series will continue with this schedule of events:

You can connect and interact with other oil & gas supply chain experts in the Oil & Gas group in the Emerson Exchange 365 community.

    Many tasks around the storage tank are manual and paper-based, ripe for digital transformation. There is a lot that can be automated on a ‘smart tank’, most of it possible using wireless sensors:
    – Inventory management
    – Floating roof tilt detection
    – Roof water pooling detection
    – Leak/spill detection
    – Independent secondary overfill prevention
    – Loading/offloading transfer valve lineup
    – Dyke valve closure
    – Valve automation
