Remote Monitoring

Remote monitoring services for oilfield systems and platforms

Whether you’re an oilfield engineer, rig worker, or site owner, you need a remote monitoring system that’s both effective and easy to use. This system should deliver you real-time wellsite data when you need it most, thereby helping to maintain efficiency as well as prevent accidents. Also, you want to ensure that all key shareholders receive clear and comprehensive reports, performance indicators, and other information regarding oilfield operations.

Laversab Oilfield is a leading provider of remote monitoring and management solutions for the oil and gas industry. Our wide range of hardware and software products are a strong asset to oilfield service providers. These highly engineered systems can remotely monitor pumps, pits, pressure, flow rates, weight on bit, and other drilling applications.

All Laversab remote monitoring systems offer the following benefits:

  • certified for Class 1 Div I, Class 1 Div II, ATEX Zone 1 or ATEX Zone 2
  • also certified for IECEx
  • fully sealed (NEMA-4/ IP66)
  • operate over a temperature range of -40°C to +60°C
  • able to withstand severe vibrations of oil rigs and truck-mounted systems

Why is remote monitoring necessary?

Many oil and gas companies mandate that personnel work in remote locations away from drilling and rigging equipment, primarily for safety reasons. Because workers use equipment that’s not in their immediate proximity, companies are employing remote monitoring hardware and software that collects and analyzes data from rig sites in real time. As a result, oilfields can operate at peak efficiency with a minimum of incidents or accidents.

With a Laversab remote monitoring system, employees remain connected across all operations, receive alerts about equipment performance and failure, and so much more. Receiving this data helps oilfield companies make informed decisions and eliminates the need to send personnel to potentially dangerous oil and gas sites.

Which oil and gas assets need remote monitoring?

The following are a few assets that companies remotely monitor due to their importance to oilfield operations:

  • Gas Meters: Maintaining a steady supply of natural gas is important to customers and suppliers alike. Therefore, remote monitoring of gas meters lets gas companies know how much gas is available in order to meet customer demand.
  • PIGs: Pipeline Inspection Gauges, or PIGs for short, are devices that take readings and pictures inside pipelines in order to look for signs of corrosion or anomalies that may lead to bursts or leaks. Using tracking devices within pipelines and GPS-synch time and location technology helps technicians align readings with exact location, thereby improving the accuracy of PIG readings and minimizing PIG run costs.
  • Test points: In order to certify effective cathodic protection, test points are needed to measure pipe-to-soil potential. Test points must be regularly monitored and configured in order to prolong the life of underground pipelines and tanks, and to reduce the risk of leaks within these assets.
  • Tanks: Aboveground and underground containing oil, condensate liquids, or saltwater an leak, overfill, or spill, resulting in millions of dollars of damage to company property and to the environment. Therefore, in order to avoid these expensive effects, these tanks can and should be remotely monitored so that companies can know when a tank has reached its capacity and needs to be safely relieved of its contents.
