The Smart Well technology allows to control and operate oil and gas equipment from a distance. In the control centre there is a digital duplicator that records the set parameters of the site (pressure, temperature, gas contamination) and allows the operator to control the well remotely. If more precise input measurements are needed, the number of well or pipeline parameters can be increased tenfold, and there is also an option to set per-second data acquisition frequency. Due to the automation of processes and control over remote sites, supervising personnel can at any moment observe the site, react to an emergency, and predict changes in the results.
The project decreases oil production costs, streamlines the data acquisition process, increases the efficiency and safety of production, and facilitates work with remote wells.
