Automated Gas Lift Optimization Solutions

Sensia offers both the expertise and the core components of gas lift surface automation. Wherever you are today we add value to your gas lift operation from monitoring and surveillance to fully automated gas lift wells.

More oil for less

In a typical well, up to 5% of production shortfall can be attributed to gas lift operational inefficiencies. Automated Gas Lift Optimization solutions from Sensia ensure responses in minutes not days, will reduce production shortfalls and quantity of gas use, and reduce overall levels of required manual intervention.

Well processes are continuous. But surveillance, interventions and optimization are still carried out manually in most cases, and therefore intermittently. Chokes are set, but not constantly controlled, and this inevitably means that operators are injecting suboptimal amounts of gas than is actually required to maximize the flow rate of reservoir liquids.

15% gas saving.
85% fewer manual interventions.

Complete control.
Faster response times.

By automating gas lift optimization – rather than intervening manually – your response to events happens in minutes rather than days. As well as reducing production shortfalls, management time will be freed up to improving the business, rather than firefighting day-to-day issues. We’ve shown in recent field trials that manual interventions can be reduced by up to 85%.

What differentiates Sensia from the competition?

Our comprehensive automation solutions covers all levels of gas lift optimization. We can build the foundation today with monitoring and surveillance and we can deploy a completely automated gas lift well. As we continue to add functionality we will build on this foundation to implement a fully autonomous, digitalized field - from well site to process facilities

All of the building blocks are available from one source, ensuring that the digitalization journey required to optimize your gas lift operations is efficient and effective.

We offer four systems for automated gas lift optimization. They build the foundation and represent the first steps to full autonomy and field optimization. We also provide individual product solution.



Gas Lift Data Gathering

Available as either a mechanical or digital based system both rely on wellhead visits to collect gas injection history and to manually adjust the choke to set the injection flow rate. These packages derive much of their ultra-low CAPEX status from the fact that onsite power generation or other utilities are not required. Both systems are proven to be robust with tens of thousands of deployments using both BARTON measurement technology and NUFLO measurement technology.



Automated Gas Lift Remote Surveillance

Fast centralized indication of unexpected problems, automatic data collection by any Modbus based operations software with visualization by Connected Production connected oil & gas digitalization platform. The preferred model of NUFLO Scanner or QRATE Scanner is selected based on area electrical classification, and wellsite monitoring and control beyond gas lift only. Easily upgradable to remote control.



Automated Gas Lift Remote Surveillance & Control

In response to the dynamics in the injection gas and production gathering systems, the flow computer automatically adjust the choke to maintain the flow and pressure setpoints that it has been assigned. The cost of the electric choke and associated power is often quickly offset by easily assigning and automatically maintaining optimization targets communicated by ConnectedProduction platform or other Scada HMI. Simultaneously meticulous record keeping by Avocet software support accounting and operation requirements.



Automated Gas Lift Optimization

ConnectedProduction is Sensia’s digitization platform providing powerful data gathering, contextualization, visualization and analytics functions. It allows operators to monitor current and historical parameters from gas lift facilities and to send revised optimization flow targets to the flow computers at the well site. Operators can do that on a centralized location or wherever they are located. ConnectedProduction is offered On-premise or In The Cloud. It is the platform for all of Sensia’s artificial lift technologies.
