Better safety performance is integral part of digital revolution

HOUSTONNew digital tools and processes that drive operational efficiencies and competitiveness in a sustained era of low oil prices also have the potential to transform safety in energy workplaces, Kurt Loustalot, vice-president of midstream in the production and processing division of SNC-Lavalin, said today at the Rice Global Engineering & Construction Forum (RGF) monthly roundtable luncheon.
 
“Most people think of digital in terms of cost savings and productivity improvements,” Loustalot said. “But adopting new digital tools and techniques also improves safety throughout the workplace. Safety has evolved to meet the needs of the workplace throughout the 19th and 20thcentury, and as we step into the Digital Revolution Age, safety is evolving again.”
 
Loustalot said digital engineering and technology is disrupting all market sectors, which means big changes in performance expectations and the ways in which suppliers, engineers, contractors, and producers work and interact.
 
“Everyone has a responsibility in driving the next step change for successful digital transformation,” Loustalot said of the evolving business environment. “From encouraging and implementing a culture of innovation and technology, to reforming a company's data architecture, we all need to adapt and revolutionize our ways of working.
 
“We all need to be sure that we can rely on our partners to recognise the importance of this digital transformation.”

GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium

View On-Demand

The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.

During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
