Effectively Merge SCADA Data

Posted by Amy Thibault on Sep 9, 2020 12:15:00 PM

Mergers and acquisitions are a part of life in the oil patch in any economic environment. 

Sometimes those transactions are fast and furious making our heads spin because of the amount of opportunity they can quickly deliver.

The steps taken after the sales transaction has occurred are what really determines the value of the long term return. Sure it was hard work putting the 'deal' together and making sure everything was in alignment before you even signed the dotted line. But, as with so many things in life, that was just the beginning of way more work, way more time, and way more attention needed to every detail to be sure the true value is realized and your previous efforts (and money) were well spent.

Field Data Capture (FDC) is the gathering and analysis of manually entered or electronically uploaded data from field equipment. Oil and gas facilities have hundreds of metering points. Multiple departments within an organization require the data from these metering points.

Some of the field data is necessary to meet government reporting requirements. Data must be collected on time and accurately to reassure the recipients of the data’s validity.

Automation alarms save miles

Posted by Doug Watt on Aug 18, 2020 12:45:00 PM

Is your company still sending a pumper out to visually inspect every well? If so, I’m sure you’ve counted the miles and hours, not to mention the costs for fuel, tires and oil changes.

There are also safety issues involved with thousands of monthly miles driven just in case something might need attention. All of this is costing you more than you probably realize. That’s not to mention lost production from issues that occur long between trips.

Maybe you’ve thought about automation but had heard some stories of how early alarm systems were unreliable, reacting to slight, transient spikes so often that they were soon ignored. That could lead to missing a real alarm.

What machine learning really means

Posted by Najat Khalil on Aug 13, 2020 10:15:00 AM

The first patent for Amazon Alexa was filed in 2012. Since then, there has been an incredible growth of skills to Amazon's voice assistant, and the credit for this growth goes to machine learning. Many of these skills include asking Alexa to tell you about your schedule, to play music, or update you on the daily weather.

We've also been using machine learning (or ML as some people reference it) for years. It's been a factor in our growth to help oil and gas producers on their digital transformation journey to autonomous operations using the exact solutions that will bring them more production, profits, and sustainability.
