Remote Monitoring vs.SCADA XSCADA We Report, You Decide 7. Benefits of Remote MonitoringReduce downtime duration; increase productionReduce spill frequency and liability through monitoring and alarmsReduce safety liability (H2S exposure, tank climbing)Optimize field operations 8. What can you see?Process VariablesProduction EquipmentTank LevelsPump Off ControllersPressuresESPs Tubing, Casing, etc.EFMsFlow Rates Plunger Lift Gas, Oil, Water PumpsTemperatures LACT Units Heater Treater, Amine, etc. CompressorsH2S ConcentrationIf it can be measured, it can be monitored 9. Remote Monitoring ComponentsTank Battery Cell Sat RadioWeb InterfaceWellheads Database andHUBRTU Software File TransferSensors 10. Sensors and LocalCommunicationSensorsIndustry sensors or proprietary?Modbus DevicesLocal CommunicationShort range radio or hard wired? 11.

Pumpers/Field PersonnelForewarned is ForearmedPlan day and route based ondataPump by exceptionAlarms/CalloutsContract PumpersReduce mileageReduce safety exposure 14. EngineersEasy access to trendsIdentify growing problems e.g. paraffinMonitor production equipment e.g. rod pumps, ESPs, compressors 15. Management/Marketing/AdminOverview of productionvs. expectationsEFM and LACT data formarketing,transportation andallocationDirect data entry intocorporate systems 16. Economics of RemoteMonitoringIsolated orRemote LocationHigh fluidImportant:to tankage High ratioIdealProducer RM Site History of High Exposure:H2S or problems Environmental 17. Quantify the BenefitsBenefits are probabilistic(If you knew which one site would go down,youd just monitor that one!)Apply across enough sites to get the broader benefitsCompany-wide deploymentUse your actual downtime and spill history to estimate improvements 18. Production IncreaseDistribution ExampleAverage=1.9%0.0% 0.5% 1.0% 1.5% 2.0% 2.5% 3.0% 3.5% 4.0% 4.5% More Percentage Increase 19.
