Streamline Control Solutions was founded on the idea of helping energy companies work in the now of real-time data. Just about any production or operations worker will agree that having real-time data would dramatically improve performance, but it is usually said in the abstract, because today’s SCADA communications systems can’t deliver on this goal.
Energy companies are being asked to do more with less, and greater demands are being placed on management teams by investors, partners, regulators and other stakeholders. Increasingly, midstream and upstream operators are being pressed to increase capital efficiency, boost productivity and restrict capital spending to within cash flow. Having real-time data for managing, maintaining, analyzing and optimizing operations can positively impact business results.
In 2011, Peter Boyle saw the future of SCADA by applying MQTT connectivity to oil and gas data communications and control systems. MQTT (Message Queuing Telemetry Transport) is a machine-to-machine (M2M)/"Internet of Things" connectivity protocol. Many people use MQTT in their everyday lives, but don’t know it. The instant messenger and texting applications on your smart phone, for example, uses MQTT to tell you when a message has been delivered and read in real-time, as the sender and recipient engage with it. SCADA enabled with MQTT gives control room operators, marketers and executives the data they need to analyze and optimize operations in near real-time.
Since our founding, Streamline has grown into the MQTT expert for oil and gas SCADA systems. We have an enviable 100% implementation success rate, making Streamline the right choice for real-time data systems.
