KMI-LNG: Ensuring Operational Continuity and Safety for LNG Facilities

Featuring Mauricio Ciudad-Real, Kinemetrics Inc.

Protecting liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities is critical to maintaining access to cleaner energy for communities around the world. Catastrophic losses result from interrupted operations at LNG facilities during earthquakes. Accurate assessment of structural impact, and informative alerts are vital ingredients to safe and efficient operation of these facilities during an emergency.

Decisions during this kind of emergency are too important to make without reliable and actionable information. Targeting response to the correct actions can be difficult, especially when time and accuracy are essential. In these situations, real-time information on potentially damaging ground motion is required to initiate the proper emergency response procedures.

In this informative webinar + Q&A, Mauricio Ciudad-Real will introduce us to how leading LNG operators monitor their facilities, understand the status of their structures, and leverage data to manage emergency response decisions more confidently before, during, and after earthquake events.

The 99% Data Return Recipe

Featuring Dr. Mathias Franke, Kinemetrics Inc.

99% Data Return over an entire year – No Timing Issues – No Micro Gaps. These performance indicators tell the story of sound engineering, outstanding dataloggers, and enterprise-class software.

Data return is the ultimate benchmark of the success of any environmental monitoring network. Without data, operators gain no value from their investment in the system. Systems related to the observational sciences (e.g., seismic networks, etc.) rely even more heavily upon high data returns. You can’t schedule an earthquake, so if the system misses data, generates error-laced returns, or experiences downtime, entire events can be missed.

In this informative webinar + Q&A, Dr. Mathias Franke describes how to achieve the lofty target of 99% data return with pristine timing in real-world seismic systems. This presentation places particular emphasis on the practical application of specific technology based upon a proven track record of delivering unmatched data return in large mission-critical systems.

Seismic Networks in the Cloud

Featuring Dr. Mathias Franke, Kinemetrics Inc.

Traditional earthquake data processing is carried out utilizing dedicated hardware in a data center run by the seismic network operator. Such specialized data centers must be carefully planned, and hardware resources (space, power, servers, storage, routers, etc.) are purchased in advance or constantly aggregated/modified/updated.

With the evolution of the internet as the backbone of international data exchange, multi-tenant data centers started to evolve in many fields, eventually resulting in scientific cloud computing.

Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of computing power, database storage, applications, and other IT resources through a cloud services platform via the internet. State-of-the-art cloud data centers offer flexibility and scalability for demand-driven processes that can deliver the reliability required for critical observational science and civil protection initiatives such as seismic monitoring networks.

In this session, Dr. Mathias Franke will introduce us to the requirements, challenges, and opportunities provided by cloud-based seismic monitoring solutions such as Kinemetrics’ Aspen platform.

During this informative webinar and Q&A session, Dr. Franke will systematically and financially compares two cloud configurations: one for a small scientific network with a few data users and another for a very large national network with many stakeholders from network operators to emergency officers.

Improving Operations and Dam Safety with the KMIDam Platform

Featuring Mohamed El Idrissi, Kinemetrics Inc.

KMIDam is a technology platform designed to manage your portfolio of dams with real-time information before, during and post-event. Leveraging a combination of smart sensing, modelling, digital twins, and real-time processing tools, KMIDam provides immediate feedback during events, and tracks changes to your structures that may lead to problems over time.

In this session, Mohamed El Idrissi will provide an overview of the KMIDam platform through the lens of real-world scenarios, including multi-dam and extreme condition implementations.

During this informative webinar and Q&A session, Mr. El Idrissi will discuss how KMIDam enables improved operation and safety by enabling operators to assess the condition of each structure, understand the immediate impact of events, and track changes that happen to structures over time.

Earthquake Resilience in Hospitals: OasisPlus Case Studies 

Featuring Dr. Derek Skolnik, Kinemetrics

When an earthquake strikes, the focus of concern quickly turns to critical infrastructure and services. Chief among these is access to healthcare facilities and the services they provide. It’s imperative that these regional hubs remain in operation as the community’s need for hospitals increases during and after a seismic event.

In this informative webinar + Q&A, Dr. Derek Skolnik will review how two hospitals in areas with high seismic activity have implemented the use of real-time earthquake response systems and procedures. He will outline how these organizations have built resilience into each aspect of their respective implementations to ensure access to critical decision-making information before, during, and after an event. Suggestions on how similar critical organizations can learn from these implementations will also be provided.
