“Technology is the great growling engine that drives the contemporary world.” Rightly said technology is always in motion and is ever evolving. Newer enhancements and developments help us achieve the unachievable and thus keeps on setting new standards and redefines the present ones. Technology is something infused into our daily lives and plays a crucial role in improving the standards of our work and progression. Latest advancements in the world of Computer Science and Informatics has hit the world with a storm. Thus incurring those advancements in the field of Petrochemicals and Oil & Gas is the need of the hour and these involvements can make the current industry productive. Acquisition and Interpretation of data are the important aspects handled by using computer frameworks. The Al grade modern automation technology works on the principal of remotely controlling and remotely accessing various equipment’s using coded communication signals and channels. Data Acquisition system combined with storage compartments and hardware helps in the collection and secure data as well as creating a back-up. It can also be called a type of Industrial Control System (ICS). These systems use computer based architecture to connect various components to a single controlling and processing unit. But it differs from other types of ICS as it tends to comprise multiple sites, equipment and can work across a larger span of area. The paper deals with its implementation of SCADA in the refineries and as a whole in the downstream sector to improve its efficiency in fields of Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) as well as improved surveying and security. With proper implementation, it can revolutionize the current petrochemical industry.
