“Integrate all major types of tank gauging technologies – into a single system – for comprehensive management of your bulk liquid inventories”

Powerful Features for Terminal Operators

tfmsUsing features, such as configurable tank displays and powerful alarm tools, your operators are easily able to monitor key information, efficiently managing your bulk liquid inventories and reacting quickly to changing conditions across your facility.

 

Customize all aspects of the user interface and make a truly intuitive system for your terminal operators.

Monitor measured and calculated variables, such as levels, temperatures, volumes, flow, etc., and select engineering units for individual variables based on your measuring applications.

Perform calculations to recognized standards, such as American Petroleum Institute’s (API) 2004 standards, ASTM, IP, GB/T, GOST, JIS, Polynomial and others.

Schedule gauge commands automatically, such as density profiling or water bottom measurement, for known down times or based on a daily schedule.

An integrated alarm toolbar and pop-up alarm notification provide real-time visual and audible notification of alarms or events. The toolbar also provides access to an active alarm summary, a historic alarm log and an alarm log file browser that allows your operators to view and print reports of alarms or events indetail.

Integrate FuelsManager with all major instrumentation, such as float & tape, servo, radar or magnetostrictive tank gauges, pressure transmitters, flow meters and leak detection systems with Varec’s Remote Terminal Unit (8130 RTU) or TankGate Interface (8300 TGI) devices.

 

Analyze Activities Using Real-time or Historical Data

In addition to providing real-time information, FuelsManager archives all data for historical use in tracking trends, performing calculations and reporting inventories. This allows your operators to review daily activities across your facility in a clear and concise manner.

Utilize predefined reports, which can be displayed by opening them from the main menu, task group or icon toolbar. Realtime reports display live data while Historical reports are created from archived information within FuelsManager.

Print on demand with the integrated Seagate Software Crystal Reports™ print engine. Historical reports can be printed as required or exported for use in Microsoft Office. Real-time reports can be printed as required or scheduled to print at defined times, such as at the change of an operator shift.

If you require greater flexibility, FuelsManager Oil & Gas Professional Edition provides a built-in real-time report editor for modifying existing reports or creating new reports for your specific business operations.

Share data with other business systems using FuelsManager’s OPC server interface.

An alternative to traditional strip recorders, graphical trends of collected data over a particular time period allow your operators to easily track data from a single tank, such as tank level, temperature gross and net volumes, or display any data collected in the FuelsManager system, such as tank levels for four different tanks simultaneously.

Plan for “what-if” scenarios, such as inventory movements, using the tank calculator. You are able to manually perform calculations using current tank data without changing any tank values. For example, “What would the level be if 100,000 gallons (378,541 liters) was added?” or “What volume could be added to reach the high level limit?”.

Configurable, Real-time Monitoring

realtimemonitoringFuelsManager’s product movement tracking system automatically captures and archives product movement data, allowing your operators to reconcile the movement after it has completed and display/print movement tickets and produce reports detailing the actual amounts of product transferred. Generate reports of all totals and discrepancies for every movement and export report data for use in standard business documents, such as Microsoft Excel or Adobe PDF. Reconcile measured volumes against third-party certified, hand gauge data to provide complete accountability.

Configure operational alarms at critical setpoints to automatically alert your operators.

Download bulk shipment schedules and upload movement volumes from head office or pipeline systems via custom interfaces.

Automatically start and stop movements based on pump and valve status or scheduled start and stop times.

Capture inventory data from field devices, such as RTUs, PLCs, automatic tank gauges and reset/rollover flow meters.

Integrate with customer order and yield-accounting systems via custom interfaces to transmit real-time movement information.

Manage all movements using an intuitive interface that allowsusers to quickly and easily define views, sort and filter movement data.

 

FuelsManager Oil & Gas Online

Allow remote users to access current inventories, plant status and reports for a single site via the Internet/Intranet.fuelmanager

Graphic & SCADA displays provide remote users access to all locally configured custom graphics, such as process, SCADA or facilityoverviews.

Inventory Management summary and detail displays show a real-time “snapshot” of your product inventories.

Easily export reports in preferred business formats, such as Microsoft Excel or Adobe PDF. Reports can also be customized using Microsoft Reporting Services. A single display provides a list of all available reports configured at the local site.

Estimate Total Emissions for EPA Title V Permits

FuelsManager Oil & Gas Professional Edition is able to provide product throughput analysis and estimated emissions for a UScompliant EPA Title V permit. Tank farms and terminals may be a major source of emissions and, as such, they require a Title V permit. Users must estimate their total emissions each year. If this estimate isexceeded, they can be heavily penalized.

Reduce your operators’ time and effort when complying with Title V of the US 1990 Clean Air Act. Calculate throughput for all tank types, add or remove tanks before an analysis is performed and select time periods, for example analyzing specific tanks per month, per year or over any given period and display the results in the engineering units you select – gallons, bbls, etc.

Easily export data to a file that can be opened in standard business software, such as Microsoft Excel or exported to US EPA TANKS (version 4.09b) software.

3rd Party Certified Leak Detection Analysis

FuelsManager Oil & Gas Professional Edition can monitor underground storage tanks at tank farms and pipeline facilities for leak conditions and alert you to a potential environmental hazard.

Perform a static or continuous leak analysis on your tanks by calculating and analyzing gross and net volumes.

Comply with environmental regulations that pertain to aboveground or underground storage tanks, buried piping and pipelines.

Integrate industry-leading leak-detection systems, such as interstitial monitoring, vapor monitoring and pipeline leak detection systems, to detect and calculate leaks based on tank volumes and tank mass.

Configure the system for automatic monthly reporting and archive all data and reports per EPA requirements.

Automatically monitor critical measurements, such as level, temperature, water level and density, and react to audible and visual alarms if a tank event occurs.
