Pioneer Natural Resources is a large, Texas-based independent exploration and production company that delivers industry-leading production and reserve growth through onshore, unconventional oil and gas resource development in the United States. SCADA Operations and Development Manager Charles Lame will present an interesting case study of how Pioneer is using Ignition to move from a single-server architecture to a scaled-out enterprise architecture with distributed services. Their large-scale implementation features more than 1,700,000 tags and 29,000-plus device connections, logging 52 million records per day and polling 160,000,000 tags overall.
