Oil Industry

The oil industry consists of three main sectors: upstream, midstream, and downstream, each playing a vital role in the transformation of crude oil into usable products.

  • Upstream involves the discovery and extraction of oil and gas, utilizing offshore and onshore techniques to tap into the earth’s resources.
  • Midstream is the logistical phase, transporting and storing crude oil, often through pipelines and tanks, to supply refineries.
  • Downstream is where refining turns crude into usable products, leading to their distribution to consumers globally.

Lockout-Tagout Solution

In the oil industry, implementing effective LOTO procedures presents significant challenges. Lost keys pose inherent risks, compounded by traditional locks’ inability to record switch data. Inadequate permission management and low information management levels exacerbate difficulties in key and lock management.

Vanma offers innovative solutions to LOTO challenges. Its system allows for one key to unlock multiple locks and enables remote authorization, streamlining access control and management. Additionally, Vanma provides audit tracking functionality, recording the time of lock/unlock activities, ensuring comprehensive monitoring, and enhancing accountability and compliance.

Oil Transportation Solution

In oil transportation, there’s a lack of recorded switch times for personnel opening manholes, hindering supervision. Maintenance staff carrying multiple keys face difficulties. Monitoring switch times by maintenance and metering staff is challenging, and there’s a risk of drivers illegally opening manhole covers to steal oil.

Vanma utilizes audit functionality to accurately record manhole switch times, enhancing supervision capabilities. Simultaneously, it enables one key to unlock multiple locks, simplifying maintenance tasks. Additionally, Vanma allows for setting specific unlock times for keys, ensuring drivers lack the authorization to unlock during transportation.
