Making energy safe
and reliable worldwide
Trusted solutions customized to meet
the demands of your ever-evolving world

As global energy demands grow and environmental and safety regulations increasingly
impact electro-intensive industries, energy-efficient Oil & Gas operations are playing a
key role in the worlds future energy mix. All Oil & Gas players face not only the global
resource but also ever-present challenges, from raw material prices to the rising cost of
energy and a decreasing number of skilled employees.

But now, with conventional reserves depleting, upstream operations face an even
bigger task: increasing recovery rates, exploring new frontiers, and taking risks in harsh
environments, all of which require ingenious and bold energy management solutions to
sustain efficient and safe operations.

Constantly improving your performance

In Oil & Gas, as in all electro-intensive industries, savings made through efficient energy
operations balance out up-front investments in the long term. Only with a constant
goal of increasing the quality and the continuity of your electricity supply and your
productions performance can operations reach their full potential and ensure safety
and regulatory compliance. The percentage of

Energy management solutions for large Oil & Gas operations

Energy Management and

Control Systems (EMCS)

Due to the physical size of operations and often extreme conditions, the Oil & Gas industry is challenged
daily with maintaining energy reliability and availability.

This is especially true if youre operating a large site and when subject to variable captive generation, grid
connectivity, and fluctuating electrical requirements depending on complex processes.

Onshore: Digital oil field

production solution

Onshore production is a key element in the upstream mix and extending recovery gains on active
reserves takes the pressure off exploring and exploiting new sites. Yet, optimizing existing fields and
increasing their recovery rates without increasing production costs remains a major challenge.

More than just oil production

Optimizing your energy management will make your oil field as efficient as

possible, by reducing electrical and mechanical stress on machinery, and
anticipating production problems. Schneider Electric solution combines four
complementary offers:

With these integrated, scalable solutions, reduced operational expenses and
optimized oil field production are finally possible. Additionally, with the help of our
proven industry experience, youll enable:
>U  p to 30% improved energy efficiency for onshore installation
> Increased continuity and quality of electrical power supply
> Improved site safety and security, reducing downtime
>R  educed maintenance with up to 70% fewer mechanical failures
In fact, field management costs are often twofold. But, by ensuring that the
installed equipment functions both continuously and for as long as possible, well
outputs are increased and the overall profitability of the oil field is enhanced.
