Oil and Gas

Applications in the oil and gas industry include oil and natural gas recovery and processing, monitoring temperature and pressure of steam and other factors in oil wells, biogas generation and conversion, water pressure, pumping efficiency, and more. CAS provides intelligent dataloggers from dataTaker featuring universal input channels that can be used with a wide range of input signal types and records including Temperature, Voltage, Current, 4-20mA Loops, Resistance, Bridges, Strain Gauges, Frequency, Digital, Serial and Calculated Measurements. These rugged devices also feature powerful alarm and programming capabilities to allow the loggers to process measurements and initiate actions on their own.

Increasing Safety and Pumping Efficiency in a Crude Oil Refinery

Increasing Safety and Pumping Efficiency in a Crude Oil Refinery

March 5, 2013

Manufacturer: dataTaker
Measurements: Thermocouple

CAS DataLoggers recently provided the automated data logging solution for a crude oil refinery which wanted standalone systems for thermocouple measurement in a number of their observation wells. Management stressed that alarming features were important--sudden temperature spikes during crude extraction could cause a rupture, while sudden drops lowered pumping efficiency.

Pressure Monitoring of Reactor Bundles in a Refinery

Pressure Monitoring of Reactor Bundles in a Refinery

June 12, 2012

Manufacturer: dataTaker
Measurements: Pressure

Lately CAS DataLoggers provided the datalogging equipment to an oil refinery conducting a demanding field logging test application. The refinery used large catalytic reaction tubes for processing: each tube in turn contained hundreds of smaller tubes. These reactor bundles flowed liquid through one end of the reaction tube and crude oil through the other end. The tubes had to be periodically inspected for leaks, so workers inserted fitted plugs equipped with pressure sensors,...

Data Logging With Remote UMTS Access In Natural Gas Dehydration Plants

Data Logging With Remote UMTS Access In Natural Gas Dehydration Plants

August 8, 2011

Manufacturer: Delphin Technology
Measurements: Current

CAS DataLoggers recently provided the data acquisition solution for a state-owned oil and gas company located in Eastern Europe involved in developing natural gas in distant gas fields. The gas came out of a wellhead for processing in either of two dehydration plants. These plants extract water from the gas before sending it through a compressor station and then pumping it through the pipeline system. However, since the two dehydration plants were based in a remote location, ...

Oil Company Uses SAGD for Heavy Oil Recovery

Oil Company Uses SAGD for Heavy Oil Recovery

April 28, 2011

Manufacturer: dataTaker
Measurements: Temperature

An oil company which regularly drills into reserves containing heavy crude oil required an advanced data logging system to monitor their operation. This crude is commonly harvested by drilling a horizontal well into the deposit and injecting steam into it to heat the bitumen and allow it to flow more smoothly. A second horizontal well is then drilled directly below the original to collect the oil and pump it to the surface, an involved process known as Steam Assisted Gravity ...
