Better Rig Tools: Reducing Cabling & Improving Performance
At Laversab we work closely with OEM customers to incorporate their technologies with our ATEX/IECEx Zone 1 and Zone 2 certified Workstations and Driller’s Consoles. This allows legacy hardware to be integrated with powerful processors and current long-range wireless. Records from existing sensors, encoders, and data collection can also be “up-converted” to the latest WITSML protocol.
We recently had a long-time customer request assistance in reducing the cabling and footprint of their onsite DAQ systems. This included combining the MWD surface system with a standalone depth tracker. In addition to separate inputs, cabling, and power requirements, they needed to ensure reliable operation at high temperatures. We assisted with redesigning a few components to meet safety constraints, and ultimately provided a high-performance 15” Zone 2 Rig-Floor computer that included both Depth Tracking and improved MWD performance. Key features included (previously unavailable) WITSML 1.4.1 output and the ability to run multiple software packages on a single HMI with no lag or decreased performance, all while communicating 24/7 with remote RTOCs (Real-time operating centers). Physical savings are 50+ lbs. of equipment and cabling, and financial savings were realized immediately.
Laversab aims not only to satisfy customer expectations but to exceed them. For more information, please contact us at email@example.com or visit Laversab Oilfield
