Automated Gas Lift Optimization Solutions

Sensia offers expertise, measurement & control assemblies and a pre-engineered software system that are purpose built to effectively operate gas lifted wells. Our capabilities scale to meet the range of expectations from measurement and surveillance to automated control. By our techniques we add value to your gas lifted assets.

More oil for less

In a typical well, up to 5% of production shortfall can be attributed to gas lift operational inefficiencies. Automated Gas Lift Optimization solutions from Sensia ensure responses in minutes not days. With Automated Gas Lift Optimization you will reduce production shortfalls, reduce the quantity of gas that you use, and reduce manual interventions.

Well processes are continuous. But surveillance, interventions and optimization are still carried out manually in most cases, and therefore intermittently. Valves are set, but not constantly controlled, and this inevitably means that operators are injecting suboptimal amounts of gas than is actually required to maximize the flow rate of reservoir liquids.

GL Performance Curve and Setpoints

Complete control.
Faster response times.

By automating gas lift optimization – rather than intervening manually – your response to events happens in minutes rather than days. As well as reducing production shortfalls, management time will be freed up to improving the business, rather than firefighting day-to-day issues. We’ve shown in recent field trials that manual interventions can be reduced by up to 85%.

What differentiates Sensia from the competition?

Our software system is designed for the production engineer. The user interface to Sensia’s ConnectedProduction provides for each
well; nodal analysis, pressure & temperature profiles, performance curves, key performance indicators, gas lift diagnostics, estimated
production rates and real time data. It can astride an existing SCADA system that it exchanges data with or function by itself an automation host.

You can trust the ConnectedProduction on day one knowing that in addition to its own capabilities that behind the scene it is using the
proven well flow simulations of Schlumberger’s Pipesim software. Also behind the scene is Sensia’s Avocet software managing your data.

The Sensia Gas Lift automation software system has been engineered as and tested as a purpose-built software bundle.

EXPLORE OUR GAS LIFT AUTOMATION SYSTEMS

We offer three systems toward gas lift optimization. The offering begins by building the foundation and represent the first steps to full autonomy and well by well optimization. We also provide our physical products to support other objectives and solutions.

#1

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.

#2

SURVEILLENCE BASED SYSTEM

Automated Gas Lift Remote Surveillance

Fast centralized indication of unexpected problems, automatic data collection by any SCADA software or Sensia’s own ConnectedProduction oil & gas digitalization platform. NUFLO Scanners connect to Modbus systems while Sensia’s QRATE Scanners with MQTT supporting cloud-based connectivity or by Modbus.

Easily upgradable to remote control as both Scanner series have PID throttling control capabilities.

#3

OPTIMIZED CONTROL SYSTEM

Automated Gas Lift Optimization

ConnectedProduction is Sensia’s digitization platform providing powerful data gathering, contextualization, visualization, diagnostic, optimization, and analytics functions. It allows operators to monitor current and historical parameters from gas lift assets and to send revised optimization flow targets to the flow computers at the well site. Operators can do this from a centralized location or wherever they are located. This integrated platform is offered On-premise or In The Cloud.
