Petroamazonas has a hand in one-third of all Ecuadorian oil and gas production. Lapsed warranties and licenses for black-box HMI servers, software and support made legacy visualization system nstable. The company transitioned two facilities to the PlantPAx process automation system with FactoryTalk View HMI software on virtual, redundant servers. Immediate reductions in downtime were
seen at both locations and virtualization cut capital expenditures by 70 percent. The system is now being rolled out at an additional 13 facilities.

  • MULTI-FACILITY VISUALIZATION UPGRADE WITH VIRTUAL SERVERS AND REAL BENEFITS  Business Portfolio  Our operations are located in the Amazon Region and the main headquarters offices in Quito (Ecuador´s capital city)  Main activities are Oil Exploration, Development and Production  Petroamazonas was legally named as a public company in April of 2010  In the past four years Petroamazonas received 3 new operation areas (or blocks): B7, B21 & B18 and is developing the Block 31 (ITT) during this year.  Last year Petroamazonas merge with Petroecuador EP, and now it is the main upstream company in Ecuador.  Contribute around the 65% of the entire oil national production  Daily average oil production  359.000 BOPD COMPANY OVERVIEW

  • MULTI-FACILITY VISUALIZATION UPGRADE WITH VIRTUAL SERVERS AND REAL BENEFITS Overall benefits Solution Selection Criteria and/or System Evolution Business and Technical Challenge Company Overview AGENDA
  • MULTI-FACILITY VISUALIZATION UPGRADE WITH VIRTUAL SERVERS AND REAL BENEFITS  Background and issues  In May 2006, Blocks 12 (EPF) & 15 (CPF) operation was transferred to Ecuadorian Government from a private company  RSView®32 infrastructure was transferred to IT and Automation teams as black-boxes; which was a potential risk for the operation of both Fields (CPF & EPF)  All the base PLCs installed in the field were Allen-Bradley such as ControlLogix®, CompactLogix™ and PLC-5®.  At that time we knew the following issues:  Physical servers out of warranty (obsoletes)  Operative systems (Win 2000) out of support  Missing licenses and/or duplicate serial keys  RSView32 platform not stable  Final users reporting issues on their daily basis  Potential black out or manual operation of the plant BUSINESS AND TECHNICAL CHALLENGE
  • MULTI-FACILITY VISUALIZATION UPGRADE WITH VIRTUAL SERVERS AND REAL BENEFITS  Petroamazonas made the decision to continue with Rockwell Automation products and solutions based on:  Standardization process, including new projects in other blocks  Less impact to the operation of both fields (CPF & EPF)  New tools for data management trending and Data/HMI/OPC servers  Certified HMI platform with Petroamazonas current hardware (HP, Cisco, Microsoft, McAfee, EMC, Citrix, etc.)  Fulfill IT and Automation users requirements  Rockwell Automation Support (Service Order signed directly with Rockwell Automation Ecuador)  Rockwell Automation offered a license swap for the majority of RSView32 and control software licenses BUSINESS AND TECHNICAL CHALLENGE
  • MULTI-FACILITY VISUALIZATION UPGRADE WITH VIRTUAL SERVERS AND REAL BENEFITS  Project plan and phases executed:  2008:  Initial meetings with Rockwell Automation team, evaluation of the product and architecture design startup (based on physical servers)  Approval obtained to execute this migration project  2009:  Project execution (January to December) according to project plan  2010:  Both systems were moved to production (CPF & EPF)  Instant benefits were shown related whit administration processes, control, and redundancy BUSINESS AND TECHNICAL CHALLENGE
  • MULTI-FACILITY VISUALIZATION UPGRADE WITH VIRTUAL SERVERS AND REAL BENEFITS  2011:  Continued with a stabilization phase and adjustment in both platforms  Operations started to increase in CPF and EPF - New facilities incorporated to the main process plant - Increased number of tags, alarms, trends, servers and licenses. - We started having IT Infrastructure problems with our HMI servers - The number of tags configured on the server didn’t support the minimal requirements recommended by Rockwell and we were forced to install new servers - We increased data servers (physical servers) considerably and we were running out of space in Data Centers BUSINESS AND TECHNICAL CHALLENGE
  • MULTI-FACILITY VISUALIZATION UPGRADE WITH VIRTUAL SERVERS AND REAL BENEFITS  Business Challenge  Keep production levels and optimize company resources  Increase availability, reliability and maintainability of monitoring and control system SCADA to avoid downtimes and improve the operation of both plants and well islands.  Provide an stable system platform for monitoring production process on both fields.  Provide real-time and historical information to end-users responsible to make operative decisions on both fields.  Provide a robust, manageable and secure HMI application supported by an stable networking, hardware and software infrastructure. BUSINESS AND TECHNICAL CHALLENGE
  • MULTI-FACILITY VISUALIZATION UPGRADE WITH VIRTUAL SERVERS AND REAL BENEFITS MULTI-FACILITY VISUALIZATION UPGRADE WITH VIRTUAL SERVERS AND REAL BENEFITS  Technical Challenge  Support the business operations requirements with the latest technology available in the market  Design a new system arquitechture based on virtualization and compatibility with supported OS  Prepare, configure, test and deploy the new HMI architecture  Reduce risk and impact to the operations during the upgrade  Reduce deployment times and administration issues  Reduce and optimize IT resources BUSINESS AND TECHNICAL CHALLENGE

  • MULTI-FACILITY VISUALIZATION UPGRADE WITH VIRTUAL SERVERS AND REAL BENEFITS
  • MULTI-FACILITY VISUALIZATION UPGRADE WITH VIRTUAL SERVERS AND REAL BENEFITS  Solution Criteria  Based on the business and technical challenges Petroamazonas decided to upgrade to a virtual platform – VMWare based on:  Rockwell Automation applications are compatible with virtual servers  Migration and upgrade process will have less impact to the operations  IT Infrastructure optimization with virtual servers  Reduce servers configuration times using preconfigured servers templates  Better backup and data protection  Increase application availability  Better ability to respond to changing business needs. SOLUTION SELECTION CRITERIA
  • MULTI-FACILITY VISUALIZATION UPGRADE WITH VIRTUAL SERVERS AND REAL BENEFITS  Activities executed:  2012  We continued adding new HMI data servers while we started planning the virtualization project  Our IT Infrastructure area prepared the virtualized architecture - Cloning the physical servers to virtual ones - Preparing new server templates - Storage sizing - Validating redundancy  Migrated both HMI platforms form physical to virtual servers running on v5  2013  Based on the excellent results on virtualization, IT decided to analyze new HMI distribute platforms in other fields, which are now implemented under the same virtualized architecture and standards. SYSTEM EVOLUTION
  • MULTI-FACILITY VISUALIZATION UPGRADE WITH VIRTUAL SERVERS AND REAL BENEFITS  2014  Petroamazonas decided to upgrade our HMI platform to v7 CPR9 SR6 - This upgrade was a major challenge because we need to install a complete new platform running under Win 2008 servers 64bits instead of Windows 2003 server. - We started the implementation with B12 - EPF - Prepared 17 virtual servers in less than a week - Ran both HMI platforms v5 and v7 at the same time during the testing phase - Implementation project executed in less than 3 months compared to one year when we upgraded from RSView 32 to FactoryTalk® with physical servers. - Two other facilities (B15 & B31) are going to be upgraded in the next weeks applying the same architecture and experiences.
