open systems approach
Why it’s finally gaining momentum
How technology can help companies succeed in the downturn.
Fully scaled wellhead automation using solar-powered, self-contained transmitters.
When producers decide to look into wireless options for deployment, a proper system should be identified based on power requirements, safety rating, RF spectrum and specific application requirements.
Wells can benefit significantly from technology-powered optimization
Traditionally, the oil and gas industry has been slow to adopt new technology, yet the tumbling oil prices that sent a tidal wave through the industry have dramatically changed the mindset of oil producers.
This solution can eliminate redundant work and unnecessary complexity.
Technology can avoid preventable issues with seals, cavitation and vibration.
Surveillance and precision control optimizes well performance.

These devices can be a good long-term investment.
Collecting data on these factors can help users make better decisions.
With wired solutions, a single lightning strike can damage multiple pieces of equipment.
These modules are pre-engineered, pre-assembled, integrated and pre-tested in a factory environment, then transported to the remote location as a single structure.
Artificial lift and chemical injection operations can be improved by removing some potential human error.
One way to save money and make operations more efficient is to close the gap between the field and the office by eliminating time spent on manual reporting and processing.
By using the drive’s built in setpoint, proportional-integral-derivative (PID) control, the process can be automated to tank or pit level, permitted flow or injection pressure.
Retro-reflective dial faces, glow-in-the-dark dial faces, magnification and anti-glare windows ensure that field personnel can monitor operations when the conditions are less than ideal.
Select the right technology and design an effective system for the best results.
A wellsite in the Bakken Shale experienced cost savings and better data access for accurate LACT processes.
