Each one of us has a role to play in creating a safe working environment. We also have a responsibility to help keep our co-workers safe.
This is particularly true when it comes to new employees. People starting a first ever, or new job are at their most vulnerable to safety hazards. Research shows that workers under the age of 25 are more likely to be injured on the job in their first month on the job. These first time, and new team members are five times more likely to be hurt during this time.Read More
It’s funny—sometimes we talk about smart farms as if they were a 2010-to-now phenomenon. But when you see how farm yields boomed in the 20s and 30s due to hybrid crops and the addition of technology—tractors—you realize farms have been getting smarter for decades.Read More
According to the EIA, the US is the third leading exporter of LNG in the world. Right behind Qatar and Australia. Experts think we’re just getting started… As these exports have started to ramp up since Congress allowed them in 2016, we realized that LNG needs to be tested for content just like produced natural gas or produced oil do.Read More
Do you have one of those little voices in your head that tells you to take safety shortcuts on home projects? Like when you don’t turn off the breaker before replacing a plug, it says, “What could go wrong?”Read More
Let's say you have your electronic flow meters (EFMs) on the Zedi Access “island”. On another “island” called Zedi Lab Solutions, you have all your gas compositions. How do you upload your gas compositions into your EFMs? Easy: Zedi Composition Management (ZCM) is the bridge connecting your EFMs to their gas analyses.
Use ZCM to link your EFM on Zedi Access to a sample point on ZCM. When that sample point on ZCM receives an updated gas composition, click Apply to upload the gas composition into the EFM. No need to send anyone to site and manually enter the gas composition into the actual EFM.Read More
Many pumpers are still collecting their data in a tally book, a reading sheet, or wrestling with a laptop in their truck on a remote—and hot (or freezing cold)—well site. Often times those pages get lost, aren't readable, and even have transposed numbers. Ahh yes, and the coffee stains, or illegible handwriting. Then chalk up the time it takes to decipher those numbers and input into your computer system.
Now all that data can be easily entered and stored on a device your pumpers already have, and cling to like it was their oxygen supply—their smart phone.Read More
One of my favorite combinations was always my Grandmothers fresh, warm, homemade donuts with a thin, bit of crispiness on the edges, combined with a warm mug of cocoa. I remember sitting next to her wood stove in the morning with my teeth chattering trying to warm up from another cold, snowy Vermont night. When she handed me my breakfast, it completely changed everything.Read More
When you receive your gas compositions and fluid analysis reports from a lab, what do you do with it? You upload it into the meter, enter it into your field data capture or production accounting system and file it away. Do you know how this new analysis compares to the previous ones? Can you see the meter’s historical analyses all at once? You can now with Zedi Composition Management (ZCM).Read More
Greek and Roman astrologers recognized that, with the rise of the star Sirius in the summer sky, they were about to enter a period of extreme heat, drought, thunderstorms, lethargy, fever, mad dogs and bad luck… Today we just know this as the hottest part of the summer and with wildfires burning across North America, the effects are easy enough to see!
But, it’s more than fires that endanger lives. Field Service team members are deployed every day to work in the heat and it’s essential that these workers are protected from the hazards of the “Dog Days of Summer.”Read More
