Tech Talks: Remote Operations of the Frac Tree
Schlumberger talks about options for improving remote operations of the many valves involved in the various activities occurring simultaneously on a multi-well pad.
Multi-well pads increase both the number of valves and the complexity of operations. While one well is completing a frac stage, another maybe running wireline. Mistakes in opening and closing valves can create huge costs, losses, and setbacks. Schlumberger's Tony Viator discussed solutions for improving process control, reducing human error, and potentially significant savings if errors are avoided.
