Market conditions in the oil and gas sector continue to hinder adoption of digital technologies like Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS). While industry leaders recognize the potential of digital technology and applications, Strategy& reports that oil and gas companies have been slow to fully embrace the digital transformation. Since LIMS implementations typically require a significant time investment, oil and gas companies are looking for ways to get up and running faster with a solution that helps maximize productivity.
Thermo Fisher Scientific offers a packaged Refinery Solution specifically developed for downstream refining operations, which is designed to accelerate the LIMS implementation process. The solution is built on Thermo Scientific™ SampleManager LIMS™ software, installed in 70 percent of the world’s top 10 oil and gas companies.
Industry-standard capabilities – only faster
SampleManager LIMS software’s Refinery Solution provides the tools necessary to help ensure and prove product quality while delivering faster ROI. The solution comprises pre-configured best industry practice functionality for refineries. Users are provided with end to end data tracking from sample login to sample approval and certificate of analysis generation. Additionally, the solution includes enhanced functionality such as unit mode, blending and product rebranding. The functionality is delivered using specifically designed dashboards with separate homepages for laboratory, administration and operations users. The solution simplifies complex lab/business processes and facilitates access to critical LIMS functions.
Additional available functionality includes:
- SQC Automated Data Trending (requires SQC license)
- Enhanced Results Searching and Trending
- Reporting (CARB, EPA)
- KPI Matrices
- Guaranteed Properties
- Operator Training
- Instrument and Stock Management
- Incident Management
- Seasonal Specifications
With pre-configured industry-standard capabilities, your refinery LIMS can be up and running faster than the traditional LIMS implementation. These configurations also help avoid costly software customizations, which not only lengthen implementation time but can also make the system more challenging and costly to maintain in future. A LIMS with fewer customizations is easier to support and upgrade when the time comes. A pre-configured solution can help reduce cost of ownership and increase your return on investment.
