White Paper: How to Develop Cost-Effective, Ruggedized Skid-Based Applications for Remote Deployments. By Solid State Automation & Controls

Skid-based applications for the oil and gas industry must meet or exceed customer requirements while yielding a profit for their developers. This paper describes how such an application was designed,engineered and built to lower the viscosity of oil output on a major producer’s remote offshore platform in the Gulf of Mexico before the oil was pumped ashore. The application uses components from the Siemens SIPLUS ruggedized line of PLCs, I/O, power supplies and HMI, contained within an explosion-proof NEMA-7 enclosure that was specially designed and engineered for this application.

White Paper: Security Measures Industrial Hackers Hope You Ignore

Oil and gas industry executives must stay informed of cyber security threats for two reasons: (1) the energy sector is by far hackers’ #1 target, says the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; and (2) a cyber attack on their own facilities can potentially have serious impacts on operations and profitability as well as grave consequences for the life safety of personnel and nearby communities. This paper provides an executive level briefing of today’s top cyber threats, plus an overview of a layered “defense-in-depth” strategy – an industry best practice.
