Altus at OTC Houston 2022

Altus at OTC Houston 2022

Continuing the series of international trade fairs where the Altus brand will be present in 2022, between May 2nd and 5th we will be attending to the OTC Houston, one of the largest trade fairs of the O&G global market.  As one of the principle developers of technology for exploration and production in Latin America, Altus could not fail participating of this event.

Currently, our products are responsible for 35% of all Brazilian O&G production; 1/3 of the FPSOs and one in every four E&P units operating in the country use Altus control and automation technology. These are impressive numbers for a company operating in one of the 10 largest oil producers in the world.

Security and high availability for E&P processes

Visitors passing by Altus` space at the fair will be able to check out our most advanced control and automation solutions for onshore and offshore processes.

This year, the highlights will be the novelties projected for the PLCs from Nexto Series, products used in the main FPSOs operating in Brazil, such as the Petrobras’ replicating units installed in the Pre-salt fields. With high processing speed, advanced real-time diagnostics and support for network redundancy, Nexto programmable controllers deliver security and high availability for critical and highly complex processes, such as those found in top-side, hull and CSS systems on offshore applications.

In addition to the robust Nexto Series products, we will also be presenting to the audience the new features of Nexto Xpress IoT ready PLC. With different embedded communication interfaces and supporting a wide variety of communication protocols, Altus compact controllers can be applied as IoT gateways for small applications in the onshore market. Among its many 4.0 functionalities, Xpress products can, for example, collect production data from the field application through a MODBUS TCP network and send it via OPC UA or MQTT to a supervisory system hosted in the cloud.

Come visit us at OTC Houston 2022 and get to know how the technology embedded in our products can increase the performance, security and availability of your units. Our team will be waiting for you at booth B3 of the Brazil Pavilion, in the NRG Park, Houston, Texas.
