Repsol Sinopec saw ROI on the project within the first few months. The system enabled operators to take preventative actions that avoided or minimised downtime:
The application detected a differential pressure that was well beyond the operational limit and alerted the relevant personnel to the situation. Without such an alert, filter damage would have caused an estimated 14 days of downtime with consequent deferment resulting in $6milllion of lost revenue at a $40/bbl level.
By monitoring the temperature of a high seal oil tank, onshore users were altered to and able to resolve a reading significantly above the average temperature. Seal failure could have caused ten days lost production equating to lost revenue of around $3million.
