3A, Glyn Addicott, Data, the value of data and how to use it in a real time environment


Before we can contemplate what 2065 will bring, we first need to understand what we are currently capable of achieving and what we can do better

We can currently achieve a lot from data even for a simple A to B pipeline with limited data acquisition rates (1 minute update rates)

For pipelines and networks we need to focus on the hydraulics to reduce risk, improve efficiency, identify unhealthy assets and lower carbon emissions

2065 will see a significant expansion of the use of models to monitor asset health and performance but the challenge in 2017 is data acquisition and data flow
