Schlumberger and Moblize Partner to Improve Gas Well Life

Schlumberger and Moblize, an innovator in instrumentation and next generation sensor-to-Web surveillance solutions, today announced a partnership to apply advanced real-time technologies to improve field operations efficiency in onshore gas fields and address the problem of managing gas well liquid loading.

The partnership will couple advanced technologies with proven processes for gas well life cycle management, moving from field operations efficiency and well status through monitoring, on to well and reservoir performance management. Initial emphasis will be for onshore wells in the United States.

The new services will use the Moblize Kanak Solution suite with any wellsite device or field/office SCADA systems and transmit data to the Moblize Enterprise Gateway Server (MEGS), a secure Internet-based system providing equipment monitoring. Schlumberger receives data from this technology for its ProductionWatcher* solution, which includes a liquid loading workflow that provides a model for surveillance of gas well production and decline over time, enabling proactive management.
