How data insights help you win big

Posted by Amy Thibault on Dec 26, 2019 5:30:00 AM

In 2011, IBM’s Watson took on two of Jeopardy’s top winners in a contest of knowledge and speed. After three exciting days, Watson had more than tripled the winnings of either human. Let's apply that to oil and gas production data insights enabling you to triple your 'winnings' - by gaining more production, more profits and more sustainability.

In the digital oilfield that lives on data and is powered by computers light years past Watson, end users are starting to get answers to questions they never dreamed of asking before.

Instead of competing with computers, many oil and gas producers are teaming with AI (artificial intelligence) so that everyone wins. And keeps winning.

Zedi Automation as a Service (ZAaaS) is designed to make it easier for you to explore the automation options for your needs, and then get up and running fast and accurately with our best practice pieces ready to install in weeks - not months.

Automation for oil and gas production that best support increases in production levels is usually very complex and time consuming for producers to put all the pieces together on their own without getting caught up in the agonizing details it takes to get it up and operating correctly to ultimately provide you and your team with the best decision making data you can get.

Increase rod pump oil well production

Posted by Amy Thibault on Dec 12, 2018 7:04:00 AM

The basic formula for increasing oil well production is pretty clear to me: the more the pump runs, the more oil it pumps. The real issue is how to reduce downtime, so that it runs more, and pumps more.

What wasn't clear to me is why on earth about 100,000 pumpjacks in the US alone are not monitored—other than by someone driving all the way out to the well site every couple of days. With that method, a pump may have been down, or even worse leaking for a day or so before it’s noticed by anyone. That’s several hours of production time that can never be recovered.

Autonomous production is now

Posted by Adin Nand on Nov 13, 2018 1:06:00 PM

From 1859, when Colonel Edwin Drake successfully drilled America’s first oil well in Pennsylvania and over the next several decades, the oil and gas business was primarily driven by manual labor

This meant high vehicle mileage, and lost production time because pumpers and engineers were constantly needed on location, which resulted in operational inefficiencies and many safety issues. Until the introduction of automation technology into the oil and gas industry.

As automation technology has progressed, from cable tools to rotary drills; from car phones to palm-sized smart phones; from desktop computers for accounting to ubiquitous sensors sending big data through the cloud to smart devices; oilfield efficiency has continued to cut costs, save time, boost production and improve safety.
