Smart Pumper Offers Real-Time Production Automation, Monitoring

Setting and monitoring well production is now as easy as accessing the Internet from your personal laptop or cell phone.

The Smart Pumper, an automated production and monitoring platform, allows operators to initiate and monitor well production in real-time on multiple wells worldwide.

Created by Greg Boyles, CEO of Houston-based service company Direct Drivehead Inc., the Smart Pumper was born out of necessity for precise, automatic pumping to maximize production and reduce operating times.  

Boyles, who first began investing in oil in the late 1970s and launched independent Texas producer New Horizon Exploration in 1985, found he needed a solution for marginal wells that needed to be pumped with precision, and didn’t see anything on the market that filled this niche.

From Boyles’ experience with wells in Texas and Trinidad, pumping wells are the most difficult assets to manage.

“Having a collection of well data is important to help you understand what’s going on in real-time,” Boyles noted.

Automating production also ensures a safer, more proactive operation.
