We would like to thank our customers for their support in 2014 and wish all a prosperous 2015. We had a busy 2014 on deployments and especially R&D which culminated in launch of our repeater system that can be seen in this photo. The technology allows the AD250 Wireless System to be deployed at any depth while being able to monitor multiple zones.
We have an exciting R&D pipeline including our low cost compact high expansion gauge hanger and setting tool, designed with our unique setting mechanism never before used in the industry. This will enable operators to retrofit existing wells or monitor pressure in short term well tests in real-time with our wireless downhole gauge system.
ACOUSTIC DATA has launched its AD250 Smart Wireless Permanent Downhole Gauge System!
Our standard AD250 Wireless Permanent PDHG acoustically transmits well bore pressure and temperature to surface in real time. This flexible system can be used for long term reservoir surveillance and capturing pressure buildups. Data measurement and transmission schedules are easily programmed, the fastest real-time transmission interval being 45 seconds.
The AD250 Smart PDHG is deployed where ‘fast’ pressure build-ups of less than 5 hours are anticipated. It is programmed to monitor dP/dT after a selected start time, and when a pre-determined threshold is reached, to switch into a fast mode consequently recording pre-buildup and early-time pressure data at 1 to 30 second time intervals for up to 600 data points. The ‘fast’ pressure data captured is transmitted to surface after the pressure buildup has stabilised.
Our new technology represents a holy grail for reservoir engineers as the AD250 Smart Gauge optimises the complete suite of real time reservoir pressure monitoring options in a simple and cost effective manner. Operators will benefit from huge reductions in OPEX as wireline services and memory gauges are now no longer required for routine well bore pressure surveys.
ACOUSTIC DATA, your data highway from downhole to desktop.
A quick update: The AD250 Wireless Permanent Downhole Gauge System configuration options now include 3G, Wi-Fi and Satellite connectivity to provide access to well data in real-time from remote regions.
Other new features include Over-the-air (OTA) firmware update and management services along with the ability to send email and sms text messages containing AD250 PDG data and well alarm conditions which can be customised according to user requirements.
