Solutions | Features and Benefits
TheLxData™ solution has been designed to simplify and cost-reduce the operations environment associated with instrumenting SAGD wells. Through one integrated platform, LxData gathers real time synchronized and correlated pressure and multi-point temperature measurements for all Pad applications. The LxData solutions uses one data acquisition unit housed at a customer designated MCC room to monitor both temperature and pressure for applications such as Horizontal Producer and Injector well monitoring, ESP pump monitoring, and Observation well monitoring. Through an optimized PAD level architecture, the customer can achieve flexibility in his downhole instrumentation decisions. Integrated fiber optic based Temperature and Pressure Sensing cables can be designed and deployed when and where required in a plug and play fashion. All downhole sensors use the same technology for temperature and pressure and are monitored by one system that easily connects to the customer DCS. All this serves to minimize downhole space and MCC room requirements, while dramatically reducing over-all operational costs associated with instrumentation.
All these feature combine to create a thermal and pressure monitoring solution that goes beyond distributed sensing architecture to a more powerful pad-level architecture, one that integrates into one central interrogation and processing unit, a full suite of horizontal/vertical/specialist sensing strings to deliver a real-time, pad level representation of the thermal environment. This creates new possibilities in advanced imaging, reservoir modeling, and ultimately process optimization.
