E.ON Ruhrgas implements reporting system on Babbage

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, Scotland – E.ON Ruhrgas has contracted Infotechnics to supply its operational reporting and logging system, Opralog, to production facilities in the UK southern North Sea.

Opralog will be deployed on the E.ON Ruhrgas-operated Babbage gas production platform, which is building towards peak output of 2 MMcm/d (70.6 MMcf/d).

E.ON Controls Engineer John Newton said: “The control room operators have to log events, report on them, and communicate any decisions and actions taken. Opralog will allow us to do this in a structured manner which will improve the reporting and communication of key data.”

Infotechnics Business Development Director Jon Howard said: “Not only will [Opralog] meet their requirement for an effective logging and reporting tool but there is also the potential for integration with systems such as OSIsoft PI.

“Opralog can be further developed by E.ON staff for use as a repository for handover check lists, safety meeting information, and daily reports and safe cards.”
