The Rise of Analytics in Oilfield Production

Advances in technology have allowed the oil and gas industry to collect massive amounts of data. The challenge is to derive value from these datasets. To achieve this aim you need oilfield production software that not only handles the volume of data but finds the insights in it.

Big Data Trends

The increasing use of data recording sensors in the oil and gas industry has led to the collection and storage of massive datasets. Data is now being collected in virtually all areas of the industry, from exploration to drilling and production. These data sets can be analyzed using statistical and machine learning techniques, and used for production forecasting, well optimization, and many other applications. One of the most important applications is asset reliability and improving it via preventive maintenance.

Tips On Air Compressor Maintenance

Keeping the air compressor well-maintained is an obviously crucial but very easy way to lengthen the life of the air compressor. Here are some tips on how to do just that!

1. One of the most obvious things to do is to keep the oil changed. To do this, turn the compressor on for a few minutes beforehand so that the oil has a chance to warm up. The warmth will increase the viscosity of the oil so that it is more easily drained.

2. Remove the air cap and then the oil cap. After these two caps are removed, simply dump the oil out and proceed to install the compressor with brand-new and fresh oil. 3. Changing the air filter is incredibly simple. Some models have filters which screw on and off while there are other Donaldson compressed air filters which simply pull out. They can’t get any more …

How Installing a Spray Deaerator Will Improve Your Boiler’s Performance

Ever had a flat soda pop? Soda fizzes because it’s pumped full of carbon gas at pressures of up to 1,200 pounds per square inch. It goes flat because Mother Nature has designed things so the pressure of gas inside water eventually adjusts to equal the pressure of gas outside. But how does that affect your boiler?

Boiler Basics

A boiler uses tubes to heat water containing undissolved gases, including oxygen and carbon dioxide. When the heated water changes to steam, the gases dissolve and permeate the air inside the boiler. That’s when the trouble begins.

Undissolved Gases and Boiler Damage

Undissolved oxygen corrodes a boiler’s tube-metal surfaces, covering them with tiny “blisters.” Small holes under the blisters eventually eat through the metal, resulting in leaks. Unless the dissolved oxygen is eliminated, the boiler will be useless in within a few months.

Undissolved carbon dioxide acidifies boiler water, causing a …
