ISC provides independent, high quality control engineering consultancy services to the oil and gas industries.
ISC specialises in:
Our simulation models are always validated to the highest standards against plant data from production or prototype testing, to ensure that the simulation accurately represent the real system.
Optimal control solutions can range from simple classical feedback/feedforward to advanced control, such as model-based methods like MPC. Nevertheless, simplicity remains a key objective in our solutions, providing performance criteria can be met.
Our clients include Shell, BP, Marathon Oil, Total.
We provide standard, industry specific and bespoke courses on a range of fundamental and advanced control engineering topics.
We can adapt individual courses to suit your company's industry/business.(Examples)
ISC developed a first principles model of this novel process for use on an offshore oil platform. This was to de-risk and refine the process design as it went through the design and factory testing phases, so that our client had much greater confidence of the system working properly as it moved to final commissioning and use.
The model was able to replicate system operation in all expected produced water flow rates and quality, and we were able to refine recommended operational procedures, control strategy and loop tuning.
offshore oil production was modelled using Hysys.Plant. The source of the instability was a combination of a controller constraint and error-squared mode of operation.
On behalf of an offshore oil platform operator, ISC assessed the pros and cons of the new technologies in terms of diagnostics, performance, interfacing, maintenance.
