Build the bridge between your gas compositions and EFMs

Posted by Richard Link on Sep 12, 2018 6:53:00 AM

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.

Pumping your smartphone with well data for upload—that’s Zedi Go!

Posted by Ed Moore on Sep 6, 2018 8:00:00 AM

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.

Finding the combinations you need to increase production

Posted by Amy Thibault on Aug 27, 2018 1:50:00 PM

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.

Let’s get visible: Historical analyses and manage by exception with ZCM

Posted by Isabel Valoria Rao, P.Eng. on Aug 22, 2018 10:00:00 AM

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).

Dog days of summer - Heat safety

Posted by Zedi Health and Safety Team on Aug 16, 2018 11:28:00 AM

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.”

Why you love our HMI (Human Machine Interface)

Posted by Revi Guillermo on Aug 2, 2018 1:33:00 PM

HMI (Human Machine Interface) – is really just the software application that presents information to an operator, or a user about the state of a process, then accepts and implements the operators’ control instructions.

This is usually displayed in a graphic format. But, it's that graphic format, and how well (or poorly) it's designed that can make all the difference. We, the humans as the users are generally visual learners. Which is just one of the reasons why our users love our HMI so much; hi-res, crystal clear graphics right in front of them that are easy to understand and give users the ability to make better business decisions.

Now you see it: Visual monitoring adds depth to Zedi’s remote monitoring

Posted by Richard Link on Jul 30, 2018 9:30:00 AM

It’s incredible how many advances we’ve seen in remote monitoring, control and data analysis in the last five years. Through Zedi Access you can “see” so many issues right from your computer or smart device via Zedi Go: Is my unit running? What’s the line pressure? Is the tank filling up? Techs and pumpers are already logging much less drive time, the equipment is logging lots more “up” time and the accountants are pushing that bottom line lower and lower.

Pump more productivity into your day with Zedi’s compressor monitoring

Posted by Tomer Berkovich on Jul 26, 2018 10:07:11 AM

In Roman times, humans were the messengers. Runners traveled sometimes for a week or more to bring home news of the battle. During this interval the situation on the front could change dramatically, rendering accurate decision-making almost impossible.

Romans didn’t have smart devices and remote monitoring. But you do.

Why aren’t you using this to your advantage for remote compressor locations?
