By Tony Collins, Simulation Specialist, Schneider Electric

Regulatory compliance is an expensive and  critical business issue for oil and gas pipeline  operators. Any approach that expedites  compliance efforts saves time and money and  also improves safety. Computer-based simulators  are seen by regulatory agencies as an effective  tool for operators, and can help expedite  regulatory compliance. This paper examines a  range of simulator types and offers guidance for  how controllers can be trained using such tools.
