In oil and gas plants, the cost of devices applicable for supervising and controlling systems directly depends on the transmission and storage systems, which are related to the data size of process variables. In this paper, process variables frequency-domain and statistical analysis results have been studied to infer if there exists any possibility to reduce data size of the process variables without loss of any necessary information. Although automatic control is not applicable in a shutdown condition, for generalization of the obtained results, unscheduled shutdown data has also been analyzed and studied. The main goal of this paper is to develop an applicable algorithm for oil and gas plants to decrease the data size in controlling and monitoring systems, based on well-known and powerful mathematical techniques. The results show that it is possible to reduce the size of data dramatically (more than 99% for controlling, and more than 55% for monitoring purposes in comparison with existing methods), without loss of vital information and performance quality.
