The complexity and inefficiency of oil well surveillance systems is being overhauled by Sensia, a joint venture between industrial automation leader Rockwell Automation, and oil and gas instrumentation leader Schlumberger.
“With most systems in place today, surveillance engineers responsible for monitoring oil wells have their work cut out for them,” said Ivan Alaniz, Solutions Architect, Sensia.
“These hardworking safety officers are often simultaneously monitoring hundreds of well assets, and attending to multiple alarms across different software systems, to keep operations running safely and efficiently,” Alaniz said.
