Join us in this session as we walk through the Digital Transformation journey in one of Malaysia's leading national oil companies. This transformation means adopting technology that can help increase Plant Utilization (PU), Improve Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) and most importantly ZERO Health, Safety, Security and Environment  incidences.
With the Industrial Internet of Things and Big data Analytics making mainstream media headlines, we have seen more and more digital transformation initiatives being deployed in the refinery. The national refinery, which was first commissioned in 1992, was using a Distributed Control System (DCS) that relies on primarily analog 4-20mA sensors and final elements. Over the years with new process units being added, the current DCS is a mix of proprietary and open systems utilizing digital busses and analog signals.
The use of wireless sensors in the refinery has also been aggressively expanding since the last 10 years. These sensors have been deployed over the existing Process Control Equipment to provide additional monitoring of critical and non-critical equipment. The main driver for using these wireless sensors has been  being the ease and low cost of deployment. With this, the DCS architecture needed to be redrawn to allow for a secure yet reliable method to harness these wireless sensors data back to the end users. The end users of these sensors are now no longer restricted to the operation personnel, but include maintenance engineers for corrosion monitoring, condition based monitoring, instrumentation and control etc.
With all this additional connectivity, the refinery has developed numerous internal standards and has made reference to international standards such as  ISA/IEC 62443.  ISA/IEC 62443 is series of standards on the cyber security of industrial automation and control systems.
