The Oil and Gas Interoperability (OGI) Pilot is a public interoperability test-bed jointly run by MIMOSA and POSC Caesar Association that both uses the Open Industrial Interoperability Ecosystem (OIIE) architecture and feeds back lessons learned. The OGI Pilot's purpose is to support the broader adoption of the OIIE within both the oil and gas industry (upstream and downstream) by facilitating collaboration between participants and demonstrating the current capability of software products to support the OIIE Use Cases and Scenarios. Test data sets and software tools and libraries are made freely and publicly available to support unit and integration test cases. Collaborating standards groups will be asked to help address the identified gaps on a prioritized basis in alignment with identified industry requirements. The ISO 18101 OGI Technical Specification will document the capabilities which are shown in the OGI Pilot.
MIMOSA hosts a online meeting for the OGI Pilot Team every month on Thursday afternoon ET. If you are interested in participating, please contact us for the meeting details.
Prioritized Physical Assets
The following physical assets have been selected in order to focus the scope of work for the teams involved in the OGI Pilot.Downstream
At the highest level, the activities of the OGI Pilot can be categorized into two subject areas:
- Continuous Handover of Structured Digital Assets
- Sustained Lifecycle Digital Asset Management
Continuous Handover of Structured Digital Assets
This subject deals with the continuous and iterative handover of information during a capital project to an owner/operator with the intent of building the digital asset alongside the physical asset. The digital asset is not an afterthought; and emphasis is placed on ensuring the delivery of structured information that is used to establish an environment for lifecycle systems of system interoperability.
The following diagram shows the relationship of elements referenced in this subject across the typical phases in a capital project lifecycle: the relevant business actors, the structured and unstructured data content included in the interoperability scenarios, as well as references to the OIIE Use Cases that are used to document the detailed interoperability scenarios and interactions.
Sustained Lifecycle Digital Asset Management
This subject deals with the management of information within the operations and maintenance phase of an asset. Predicated on successful delivery and handover of a digital asset during a capital project, both the physical asset and digital asset are synchronously monitored and managed through distributed but coordinated processes.
The following diagram shows the relationship of elements referenced in this subject during the operations and maintenance phase: the relevant business and system actors, the structured data content included in the interoperability scenarios, as well as references to the OIIE Use Cases that are used to document the detailed interoperability scenarios and interactions.
Prioritized Classes of Information
To accelerate the utility of this work for owner/operator projects, the OGI Pilot focuses on the near term definition of graphical representation of PFDs and P&IDs, and the definition of process and instrumentation design parameters. The definition work for OEM product datasheets, as-built serialized asset parameters, and electrical diagrams (treated identically the same way as PFDs and P&IDs) become mid-term goals to be addressed as soon as the graphical representation and engineering design class work is completed. Long term goals will address other owner/operator identified requirements for capital projects and all other key types of industry supplied information that must be incorporated into life-cycle information management environments.
The images below represent the application architecture and data flows throughout the different phases of the OGI Pilot.
Phase 2 (current)
Phase 1 was publicly demonstrated at the 2012 ISA Automation Week, and a live recording of the interoperability demo can be viewed here.
The following organizations have actively participated in the OGI Pilot:
- Noumenon Consulting
- POSC Caesar Association
- Rockwell Automation
- Southern Company
- University of South Australia
