MEASUREMENT BASED SYSTEM
Gas Lift Data Gathering
Available as either a mechanical or digital based system both rely on wellhead visits to collect gas injection history and to manually adjust the choke to set the injection flow rate. These packages derive much of their ultra-low CAPEX status from the fact that onsite power generation or other utilities are not required. Both systems are proven to be robust with tens of thousands of deployments using both BARTON measurement technology and NUFLO measurement technology.
SURVEILLANCE BASED SYSTEM
Automated Gas Lift Remote Surveillance
Fast centralized indication of unexpected problems, automatic data collection by any Modbus based operations software with visualization by Connected Production connected oil & gas digitalization platform. The preferred model of NUFLO Scanner or QRATE Scanner is selected based on area electrical classification, and wellsite monitoring and control beyond gas lift only. Easily upgradable to remote control.
CONTROL BASED SYSTEM
Automated Gas Lift Remote Surveillance & Control
In response to the dynamics in the injection gas and production gathering systems, the flow computer automatically adjust the choke to maintain the flow and pressure setpoints that it has been assigned. The cost of the electric choke and associated power is often quickly offset by easily assigning and automatically maintaining optimization targets communicated by ConnectedProduction platform or other Scada HMI. Simultaneously meticulous record keeping by Avocet software support accounting and operation requirements.
OPTIMIZED LEVEL SYSTEM
Automated Gas Lift Optimization
ConnectedProduction is Sensia’s digitization platform providing powerful data gathering, contextualization, visualization and analytics functions. It allows operators to monitor current and historical parameters from gas lift facilities and to send revised optimization flow targets to the flow computers at the well site. Operators can do that on a centralized location or wherever they are located. ConnectedProduction is offered On-premise or In The Cloud. It is the platform for all of Sensia’s artificial lift technologies.
