Accurate Wellbore Positioning Using WellDefined Automated Survey Solutions

December 07, 2022
Join our expert, Mahmoud ElGizawy, to learn how automated survey management solutions can allow operating companies and service providers to access the most advanced directional survey correction algorithms to optimize drilling applications in real-time by providing accurate wellbore positioning data. This allows timely correction to the wellbore trajectory without requiring additional tools or onsite personnel. The automated survey solutions maximize reservoir production by accurately placing the well in the planned spot while avoiding collision with other wells in close proximity.

John will also be joined by Tara West and Kelly McFadgen from Marathon Oil Corporation to offer customer testimonial to how CyberFrac has provided versatility and flexibility to their frac pads and the improvement they have seen firsthand after implementing the system within their Bakken asset.

How to Take Advantage of a Highly Integrated Process Control and Edge Control Platform

September 06, 2022
Rockwell Automation and Sensia
Integration of edge computers with real-time process control data is important for users who want to implement analysis and advanced data processing in the field. Traditionally, edge computers are a separate device that must be integrated with controllers and flow computers. Custom applications can be run on the edge computer that will allow for highly advanced real-time analysis of the field measurements, however building an edge environment and integrating data can be a non-trivial task. Similarly, selecting the right edge platform requires deep knowledge of security, application, and communication requirements. Sensia provides a new perspective for those wanting to implement edge computing with their real time control systems. We will discuss and show examples of what a highly integrated edge and control environment can look like and how it creates new options for how you manage and plan your automation projects.
