SITUATION AND CHALLENGE

Unmanned, remote wellsite locations require field personnel to manually track inventory, ensure proper dosage rates, troubleshoot pumps and facilitate chemical orders and delivery. A North American Operator was looking for a solution to better manage their chemical program in their South Texas conventional oilfield. A shortage of information around orders and inventory can threaten security of supply, leaving an operator without chemical when it is needed for dynamic production changes, and constant physical monitoring requires many visits to the site, increasing labor costs and threatening process safety by increasing exposure to chemicals.

DATAIQ TLM PROVIDES FULL VISIBILITY TO YOUR CHEMICAL PROGRAM WITHOUT CONSTANT PHYSICAL MONITORING.

SOLUTION

Nalco Champion collaborated with the customer to assess their current chemical program, and found there was some scope for improvement for injection assurance, dosing accuracy and risk control that could be addressed with enhanced access to operational data. They selected 54 tank locations based on the criticality of chemical programs and remoteness of location attributing to a history of documented operational inefficiencies. In this case, these sites were undertreating by 29 percent of actual recommended volume.

The units were installed on production chemical tanks with continuous injection application. Alarms were configured to draw attention to over- or under-treatment based on an average set of remote readings and inventory levels. Notification emails were sent daily to track data. The DataIQ data management platform displayed updated tanks levels and derived actionable insights to the customer at any given time.

RESULTS

Undertreatment reduced by 61 percent across 50 wellsite locations, with further refinement forecasted. This program also addressed following customer operational needs:

  • Improvements to production efficiency by monitoring treatment levels to enable personnel to respond more quickly to operational failures to prevent spills and shut-ins, and by revealing inefficiencies and adjusting injection rates.
  • Improvements to service efficiency by enhancing the efficiency of in-field personnel, enabling them to focus on more critical operational tasks, and by enabling Nalco Champion personnel to more effectively communicate operational updates and inventory requirements to the customer.
  • Improvements to financial efficiency by providing enhanced visibility to operations, allowing the customer to better manage working capital, and by assisting the operator to minimize unbudgeted operating expense associated with troubleshooting and pump shop repairs.
  • Enhanced safety by reducing SH&E vulnerability –  fewer necessary site visits, and less chance of asset failure as a result of the program.

Tank level monitoring using Nalco Champion’s DataIQ TLM program provided this customer with increased visibility into their chemical operations. This provided an operational enhancement that enabled field personnel to proactively optimize performance and reduce costs while mitigating risks.
