This paper describes the objectives, equipment and functions of the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system installed by Mobil Oil Indonesia (MOI) during the first half of 1983.

The SCADA system provides operations, management, and engineering personnel with various applications of automatic production control such as production reports, field and cluster status, and flow calculations.

This paper concludes with a discussion of the particular benefits gained by MOI in the Arun Field as well as the features of the SCADA system which make it a potential model for similar systems throughout the petroleum industry.
