Sand-control tool for monitoring sand-affected wells to reduce breakdowns.

In more detail

Full description

Sand can be a serious impediment to production. It can cause erosion, equipment failure and even plant downtime. Designed to prevent equipment and system breakdowns, this digital sand-control solution designs, implements and monitors improvements in sand-affected production. It monitors sand-affected wells and related processes, and its central digital monitoring centre highlights potential sand-related problems, so that they can be swiftly acted upon and resolved to reduce breakdowns and boost production.

The technology includes Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), which records acoustic signatures inside the well to detect sand entry and build-up. DAS reveals the precise location of these events, enabling operators to take swift action, such as well cleaning. As well as monitoring process changes and tracking KPIs for all sand-affected wells, the platform provides greater overall transparency to the sand-control process. It improves predictive maintenance procedures, cuts repair costs and boosts production.

The challenge

Sand can be a serious impediment to production. It can cause erosion, equipment failure and even plant downtime. Typically, operators rely on a mix of manual analysis and multiple software tools to monitor and minimise the disruption sand can cause to the production process but this is not wholly reliable. Designed to prevent equipment and system breakdowns, this digital sand-control solution designs, implements and monitors improvements in sand-affected production. It monitors sand-affected wells and related processes, and its central digital monitoring centre highlights potential sand-related problems, so that they can be swiftly acted upon and resolved to reduce breakdowns and boost production.
