Data acquisition for monitoring oil and gas production sites

Production site monitoring

In many onshore oilfields, data acquisition is done by employees who go out into the oilfields and write down information such as flow rate, pressure, and temperature on their clipboards. These notes are later manually merged into Excel spreadsheets. In times of low crude oil prices, reducing costs and increasing efficiency – in particular on the upstream side – are of crucial importance. One way to do this is to digitize oilfields. This enables data acquisition on oil rigs and consolidating the data from complete oil fields. Alongside monitoring, you can also use this approach to control equipment and systems in the oil field, such as emergency switch-off units and injection pumps.

Monitoring of production sites from the control room

In the control room, the acquired data can be displayed directly and sent to a higher-level control system for further processing.

Utilizing advantages of the digital oilfield

Increase profitability, maximize operational performance, and enhance safety: Benefit from the capabilities of the digital oilfield to optimize your production operations. Whether in the brownfield or the greenfield, our robust all-in-one solution allows you to monitor and diagnose the condition of your production sites reliably and cost-effectively, even over long distances.

Networking the digital oil field

Production sites often constitute an extensive and widely branched network. For reliable data transmission over many kilometers, you will find communication solutions based on various wireless technologies as well as Ethernet communication over existing 2-wire cables using SHDSL technology.

In wireless technology, both 4G and 5G solutions and the specialized wireless solution Radioline are used. This also allows fast setup of mesh networks, directly on the device using a thumbwheel or USB stick. In the event of a fault, failure of a wireless module is compensated immediately.
