14 | July 2018 | ARTIFICIAL LIFT: KEY PLAYERS focused on achieving better pressure control and wear prevention while maximizing production and minimizing downtime. The company's PCP systems are designed for use in both oil production and dewatering applications. A PCP controller, part of a line of automation prod- ucts, ensures greater operational efficiency and better control of PCP artificial lift systems, integrating into existing networks to simultaneously monitor pump performance and control on/off cycles. The system minimizes downtime and optimizes well performance by automatically changing pump speed, according to the company. Novomet Russia-based Novomet manufactures electric sub- mersible pump (ESP) systems. The company's tech- nology includes slimline ESPs capable of fitting inside of 4-in. casing, PowerSave ESP systems to reduce power consumption by up to 50% and prod- ucts for wells with high gas-oil ratios, scale, solids and H 2 S. The company's ESP offerings include downhole equipment, surface equipment, and scale preventers and filters. Other artificial lift products include gas-handling, scale and solids management and extreme H 2 S environment solutions. Novomet also offers a rigless ESP system without tubing, a bypass (Y-tool) system and a progressing cavity pump with topside and downhole motors. In March Novomet developed an abrasion-resis- tant ESP system with an expanded operating range, according to a news release. "Due to the expanded operating range, it is now possible to reduce the stan- dard range of 362 and 406 series ESP systems with flowrates from 10 to 350 sq m/d from 13 to 3 models. In addition, ImpalaESP is designed to operate at 3,000 rpm and may be driven by an induction motor with a conventional VSD," according to the press release. "As a result, operators will be able to reduce inventory levels, optimize the ESP application process and ulti- mately cut total costs of oil production." Novomet has service centers in 12 countries out- side of Russia. The centers offer a variety of ESP services for well maintenance that include sizing, inspection, transportation, assembling/disassem- bling, testing and supervising. In November 2017 the company opened its latest office in Wyoming. PetroCloud PetroCloud specializes in cloud-based solutions for security, surveillance, remote monitoring and control of critical assets in the oil and gas indus- try. These technologies enable users to remotely access, view and control their site's equipment using their mobile phone or computer and notify them of critical events. PetroCloud's remote surveillance system provides high-definition cameras with streaming video, night vision, thermal imaging with digital snapshots and 24/7 recording. The company's security products provide remote gate access control with video and keypad restricted entry. PetroCloud's SiteWatch offer- ing includes end-to-end perimeter coverage using laser tripwires. These systems allow users to receive notifications whenever workover rigs, transportation trucks or others arrive or leave a site. PetroCloud's real-time data acquisition and ana- lytics provide bi-directional control systems inte- grated with live-streaming video operations. The system leverages a company's existing SCADA and programmable logic controller systems and pro- vides the ability to control and communicate with oilfield sensors, gauges and field devices through its cloud automation platform. This is accomplished without the need to purchase equipment, install software or manage IT infrastructure. The Petro- Cloud platform provides an integrated system for complete oilfield site management, automation and control in a single managed system.
