Control Room and Remote Operation by Eldor,  Future of the oil and gas industry

Remote Control and use of an Onshore Operation Center will give numerous benefits and will simplify the way to operate your plant. A human-centered design, taking all elements within PPTO (People, Processes, Technology and Organisation) into account, will ensure you get a "fit for purpose" Control Center, tailored for your needs.

The great opportunity for remote operation

In most offshore and onshore production facilities, there is a great potential to apply digital technologies and work processes to increase production efficiency and plant integrity, while minimising environmental impact and improving the safety of the people involved.

To achieve this, an optimum design of the operational environment with respect to human factors, task analysis, and technology is required.

Operation support centers are used for process and maintenance optimisation, in addition to supporting operation. The design needs to reflect people, processes, organisation and technology.
