Maximize revenue and returns Scope Summary
The target applications center on production wellheads.

Our solutions provide the necessary data acquisition, control and visualization for the flow, transport and local processing of oil & gas from wells. From the Wellhead, the oil and gas (along with any accompanying gases, liquids and solids) will be gathered or processed in a variety of scenarios:
On-site processing and local storage (offshore platforms, small scale & remote onshore wellheads)
On-site processing with immediate transport to remote storage facilities (onshore)
Gathered to small bore pipelines and transported for processing and storage at centralized facilities (onshore, usually for fields) The Christmas Tree is the collection components and equipment used to regulate, control, monitor and measure production above the wellhead.

It is an assembly of control valves, pressure gauges and chokes assembled at the top of a well to control flow of oil and/or gas after well has been drilled and completed.

This is usually required only for wells under pressure, or subject to injection to maintain pressure. Wells with pump jacks use mechanical means to extract oil, and therefore do not need to regulate excess pressure and control flow (as the pump jack is self-limiting). The Wellhead is a structural component, mainly to contain and regulate the pressure and materials in the well. It is used in both the exploration and production phases of a well.

It acts as the interface between the subsurface structures & materials (e.g. casing, tubing, pump, sand, rock, oil & gas) and the apparatus above the well (e.g. meters, valves, controllers, visualization and pipeline equipment).

For a production well, equipment that is mounted above the wellhead is termed the Christmas Tree. Wellhead Primer Wellhead solutions DO NOT apply to this industry group Downstream
distribution and sale of finished products
natural gas and crude oil derivatives
natural gas and by-product sulphur
natural gas liquids – ethane, propane, butane, isobutane, etc
petroleum fuels - gasoline/petrol, diesel, jet fuel, heating oil
finished materials – asphalt, lubricants, rubbers, plastics, fertilizers, pesticides, etc Mobility Agents:
Thermal = Steam;
Viscosity = CO2;
Surface Tension = Surfactants

Primary & secondary recovery
~ 20-40% of reservoir original contents

Enhanced oil recovery
~ 15-30% of reservoir original contents EOR is Enhanced Oil Recovery. Through a variety of techniques and mechanisms, the goal is to use subsurface injection to improve yields of oil in existing reservoirs.

A variety of agents (chemicals, gases, steam, etc.) are injected down hole at very high pressures to push the oil & gas to the extraction point (well) and up to the surface.

Pressure is not the only mechanism: the injection agents alter the mobility of the oil to allow recovery. Upstream Rig platforms
Production wellheads
EOR wellheads
Gathering facilities Target applications for Wellhead Solutions Onshore vs. Offshore Offshore
these operations are large capital projects with significant requirements for local personnel, monitoring, safety, power and operation.
platforms are more like plants that support a single high-yield well. Wellhead Oil & Gas - Industries
Local monitoring and control is isolated. Real-time, historical and diagnostic data are disconnected from the enterprise. Hence, findings, best practices and best performance procedures are rarely shared outside of the local field
A lack of centralization for collections, visualization, alarming, diagnostics and analysis duplicates effort for minor tasks. This burdens scarce human resources that are better used for remote maintenance and operational efficiency
Bespoke DAQ platforms cause cost-based obsolescence before optimal recovery is achieved Obstacles:
Manual record-taking requires time to travel between well-heads in a sequential fashion.
The time in transit results in a mismatch between downtime recovery and scheduled visits and maintenance.
This downtime frequently results in hours or days of lost production.
Lack of real-time information means that control is built for safety at the expense of productivity.
Production control is not timely, efficient or optimal.
Predictive/preventive maintenance is based on a very small sample data set.
Well performance monitoring is estimated from wide-interval sampling of a limited number of inputs. Wellhead Industry For an introduction to Hazardous Locations, as well as more Wellhead Terminology and Primer topics...

Visit the glossary under "Resources"
in the main course page Production costs need to be reduced to offset higher drilling, transport and personnel costs, lower yields from maturing reservoirs and more stringent safety and environmental regulations
Wells need to couple rugged, self-sustaining systems for monitoring and control with centralized analysis and dispatch systems to optimize production and maintenance cycles
Remote monitoring & diagnostics should help standardize production metrics across wells and act as a force multiplier for personnel while assisting with troubleshooting & preventative maintenance.
Too much reliance on personal experience is needed to optimize production from local fields
Lack of standardization (equipment, operating procedures, control) creates uneven returns from wells within a field and between fields. It also prevents production benchmarking that can indicate where greater effort is required to achieve optimal recovery.
Preventative and predictive maintenance is more often “time-based” than “needs-based”
Declining oil production – need to squeeze more profit out of every well and reservoir
Material and energy cost escalation – capital and operating costs increase as wells become more remote
Shortage of experienced personnel – knowledge and expert resources more expensive and spread thinly
Compliance to safety standards - adds an extra layer of cost and risk
Ambiguity and latency in data used for decision support – personnel unable to make improvements and refinements at the optimal time
Bespoke harsh area platforms - cause premature obsolescence of equipment, reducing the capability to produce from aging wells and reservoirs and reducing the ROI per well GE as trusted partner providing a modern technology platform that exceeds asset life cycle needs Extend lifecycle of assets Inadequate Asset Longevity Improved use of scarce resources via automated workflow Decrease mobilization & deployment costs Resource Scarcity
