Listening to oil and gas data

Posted by Nate Lane


Now that you’ve automated your production, you're getting your well site information in real time, not waiting for the pumper to bring in tickets at the end of the day—or the week—and able to react to changes in real time.

Welcome to the new, efficient, you.

As great as that is, there’s more that we can do for you. If you’ve fully automated everything, your system is collecting thousands of data points every hour. Every day.

We get all your data to talk to you, to tell you where it hurts, so to speak.

Here’s an example. If your wells are on standard pumpjacks and you want to make sure you stay ahead of downhole issues like gas locking, paraffin buildup, rod parts or something else, you’ll want to see the pump card. And you’ll want to know as soon as something significant starts to change.

We can make that happen. Alarms are getting more and more accurate. They’re walking that line between too many and too few. Too many means false alarms, and you tend to ignore those after a while. Too few and you miss an important failure.


Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are helping us zero in on what you really need to know. In most cases, we can tailor the data and alarms to exactly what you want to know.

My favorite thing is to put a solution on paper, then see it work like it’s supposed to in the field, in real time. That means my customer got the information he or she needed to be more efficient, to boost production or reduce downtime/repairs, many times without a single trip to the site. That’s a great feeling!

We're also in the safety business, helping people stay off those crazy, crater-loaded oilfield roads as much as possible. Speaking of roads, we have a robust roadmap that will drive better and better oil and gas production efficiencies. 

When you’re managing by exception with automation, you don’t have to drive by and wave at a perfectly operating pump or tank battery. Automation gives each person the tools to focus only on what needs attention, and now we’re getting to where we know ahead of time where that attention will be needed—before there’s a failure or a leak.

Our automation and software as a service is evergreen—that means you’ll automatically hear the new things your system wants to tell you. The true art of conversation is really listening to what others (even your production) are actually telling you. So it makes sense that the more you can hear what's being actually said the more increases in production you'll get.
