The new j5 OMS combines the data collected by the employees with the information from historians, providing NRL’s Operations team with a single source of information for Operations.

NRL will follow a phased approach for the j5 OMS deployment and has started the implementation with five refinery units: hydrocracker, solvent de-oiling, power and utilities, diesel hydrotreater and the Numaligarh Refinery Marketing Terminal (NRMT). A refinery-wide implementation of the solution is planned in first half of this year.

Hexagon’s j5 OMS combined with the j5 Connector for AspenTech will empower the NRL team with advanced business operations and technology transfer capabilities. This will improve shift-to-shift communication and help NRL reduce the risk of hazardous incidents, equaling industry-wide shift handover recommendations by experts.

SK Barua, MD at NRL, said:“Hexagon solutions will accelerate and support our digital transformation journey by enabling us to optimize our business operations. These solutions provide us with efficient, intelligent, and data-centric work processes with auditable traceability, supporting the entire facility lifecycle.”

“This partnership between NRL and Hexagon marks the first public service company j5 OMS adoption in India. Digitalizing the operations workforce at the NRL refinery will enable NRL to not only see major advancements in the management of their daily operations but also ensure the best in market safety and sustainability standards,” said Chanpreet Sahni, vice president for Hexagon’s PPM Division in India.

The Numaligarh Refinery (NRL) is an energy company owned by Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL), Government of Assam, and Oil India, located in the Brahmaputra valley in the region of Assam.
