How much waste is each of your sites producing? In the oil and gas industry, a typical site can produce many kinds of waste, including wastewater, vented natural gas, or flare emissions. This waste has to be disposed of, recycled, or eliminated. All of that costs money, cutting into your bottom line. Adding automation can help minimize waste and keep costs under control.
Minimizing Waste At The Source
A combination of SCADA and automation technology can keep waste production down while maximizing the well's production level. It can be used to prevent pollutants from being discharged. It can be used to maximize the reuse of waste components. And all that can be done while adjusting the well for maximum production.
Reusing waste water is an ideal solution, especially in areas where natural water levels are already low. As the water emerges from the well, it is filtered to remove most contaminants. It can then be reused for well injection needs.
SCADA and automation technology makes it possible to adjust the gas injection rate to minimize waste and maximize well production. The same thing can be done with the plunger lift optimization. With the remote SCADA communication technology, all of this can be done from the comfort of the office or from a remote device in the field.
Another benefit of automation and SCADA is the ability to capture and measure discharges, emissions and waste. This helps with reporting for regulatory purposes. It also provides a wealth of data that can be analyzed for trends or events of note.
If you want to bring down the waste at your oil and gas sites, it is time to invest in SCADA and automation technologies. You can count on Champion Automation to design, install, test, and maintain these systems in all your sites. Give us a call today.
