Unconventional wells exceed expectations with unconventional lift

Posted by Community User on Nov 20, 2018 2:46:00 PM

Things used to be so much simpler. Every home had one phone line. Every store took cash or checks, and almost every well had a rod pump over its whole life span.

Complexity though, can be really great for your bottom line.

With cell phones, we can call for help from just about anywhere. Debit cards are way faster than check writing. And using a series of unconventional lifting methods on unconventional wells is unlocking much stronger potential for oil and gas production—and profitability that we could only dream of a few short years ago.

Build the bridge between your gas compositions and EFMs

Posted by Community User on Sep 12, 2018 7:53:00 AM

Let's say you have your electronic flow meters (EFMs) on the Zedi Access “island”. On another “island” called The Lab that processes all your testing and they 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.

Now you see it: Zedi Video Surveillance adds remote asset security

Posted by Community User on Jul 30, 2018 10:30:00 AM

Seeing is truly believing. Through Emerson's Zedi Access you can “see” so many issues right from your computer or phone via Zedi Go:

Is my unit running?

What’s the line pressure?

Who's actually on-site?

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. And yet—it still would be nice to actuallysee what’s happening out there.

Tame your tanks, know your levels

Posted by Community User on Dec 6, 2017 2:31:00 PM

If automation for you conjures up images of complexity along the lines of The Matrix or something, I have some good news. It doesn’t have to be that complicated.

As an example for me personally, I love looking at all the ways well-site automation can improve the bottom line and generally make life simpler. Or the way something simple like automating tank levels with alarms can actually save lives - all the possibilities are very exciting!

Gas and liquid analysis sampling AER rules

Posted by Community User on Oct 20, 2014 4:03:00 PM

Like many places around the globe that produce oil and gas, in Canada the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) has specific rules for oil, gas, and related hydrocarbon sampling and analysis in Section 8 of Directive 017. This covers the type of sample to be taken, the analysis procedure, and what the resulting compositions are to be recorded.

We will take a look at what these mean and how to implement a strategy for compliance and some of the tools you may find helpful to get there.

What you need to know for AER measurement schematics regulations

Posted by Community User on Feb 4, 2014 3:47:00 PM

Producers in Alberta are subject to  measurement schematics regulations as part of Directive 017. Do you have questions about what you need to do to remain compliant? In this blog post, we hope to give answers to some of those questions to help you get there.

What facilities do I need to create measurement schematics for?

Producers must have a well detailed measurement schematic for all active facilities, with no grandfathering for active facilities. Any reactivated facility must have an up-to-date schematic within three months of reactivation or after the implementation period, whichever is later.

Zedi Chats: The Hidden Costs of Well Testing

Posted by Community User on Aug 27, 2013 6:11:00 AM

In "The Hidden Costs of Well Testing", Vice-President of Strategic Business Development Tory Nudd challenges the idea that conventional gas charts are the cost-effective well testing choice for producers. Due to hidden operational costs that aren't always factored in, the traditional paper chart method can be more expensive and time-intensive then originally assumed.

The high cost of rework in production accounting

Posted by Community User on Dec 17, 2012 6:45:00 AM

The saying “do it once; do it right” may be much tougher than it sounds. So many things can go wrong beyond our control. In an ideal world, the following would be all true: 

  • The information you have is timely, accurate, and complete
  • There are well documented manuals and are subject to only one interpretation
  • There is an exact precedent that you can follow
  • There is a knowledgeable, trustworthy person who has the time to help
