Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Resources

j5 Case Studies, White Papers and Other Key Information
j5 Applications are used across the operationsprocess safety, compliance and reporting teams of our Liquefied Natural Gas clients to improve communication and data collection across all levels of an LNG operation. In the past a mix of paper, spreadsheets, scattered databases and poor verbal communication have been used to log events within the LNG Industry. LNG terminals now require a secure and professional electronic logging and shift handover system. j5 International have also designed custom applications for the LNG industry such as j5 Ship Unloading / Loading, which manages the delivery of LNG from the ships and j5 Send Out Management, which manages outward delivery to the main pipelines.
Regulatory authorities – such as the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in North America – require that LNG companies must obey specific criteria. j5 Applications enable the various operations personnel within an LNG organisation to manage all of these compliance duties efficiently and consistently.  In this way, it helps ensure compliance with internal policies and the requirements of the relevant local and national regulatory authorities.
It is also important to interface LNG IT systems together to provide a central recording and reporting operations management system which can be accessed from the control room and field operators to the plant managers to the operations managers. j5 Applications read and write data to popular LNG systems such as Wonderware Historian and the OSIsoft PI System®, maintenance systems such as IBM Maximo, asset management systems such as SAP and so on. This ensures that all the relevant data recorded within an LNG operation can be shared with the correct people in real-time. Corporate senior management can also use j5 Dashboards, Reports and Views to analyse the performance of their fleet of LNG assets. They can compare and contrast plant performance to optimize costs and efficiency.

White Paper – j5 OMS Logbooks and Regulatory Compliance in the LNG Industry

By nature of the product and the industry, LNG processing plants are considered to be potentially hazardous and represent a potential environmental risk. For this reason, all LNG facilities are controlled under local, regional and international regulatory authorities and – in many cases – fall under the jurisdiction of many different authorities. This White Paper explores how the j5 system ensures that an entire LNG operation complies – at all times – with safety, environmental and security standards.

White Paper – The Importance of Implementing Sustainable Operations Management Software (2016)

Contemporary businesses are looking for sustainable software solutions that are constantly evolving and responsive to their changing requirements. An Operations Management Software (OMS) suite is no different and requires future-proof ease of installation, revision control and a highly configurable platform. It is important that companies choose an OMS vendor which adopts a “Kaizen” philosophy. This White Paper looks at five key questions which every company should consider when choosing their OMS vendor and the applications they intend to implement.
