Baker Hughes Launches Artificial Lift Monitoring, Optimization Service

Baker Hughes has launched its Centrilift Vision™ real-time artificial lift system monitoring and optimization service. Centrilift Vision collects data from artificial lift operations and then provides clients critical information necessary to optimize production and minimize field down time.

Centrilift Vision includes several differentiating features compared to other industry artificial lift monitoring and optimization offerings, including fuzzy logic alarming, daily exception reporting, and advanced key performance indicator tracking. All of these features allow operators to highlight and diagnose artificial lift issues and opportunities in real time, which ensures optimal production levels from artificially lifted wells and maximizes the life of the artificial lift system. Additionally, Vision sets the standard for ease of use and accessibility while conforming to stringent data security standards. Vision, combined with Baker Hughes downhole sensors, provides a complete system to unlock the full potential of artificial lift completions.

"Vision is a breakthrough in artificial lift monitoring and optimization because we have closed the gap between the time a production-impacting event occurs and when it is recognized, diagnosed, and repaired in the field. This capability can dramatically reduce non-productive time," notes John Kenner, President of the Baker Hughes Centrilift product line. "We are excited about the capabilities of Centrilift Vision that allow our clients to increase production and prolong the life of artificial lift systems."
