SignalFire releases wireless Chemical Injection System

April 8, 2015 – SignalFire releases wireless Chemical Injection System that monitors, controls and optimizes the chemical injection process at oil wells.

Chemical injection is critical to the oil field production process and the second highest operational expense.  During this process, chemicals are pumped at high pressure into a well to mitigate a variety of issues (paraffin or scale reduction, H2S mitigation, corrosion inhibitors).

If executed properly, chemical injection can enhance oil production and greatly reduce operating expenses. However, as the process is largely unmonitored and uncontrolled (often managed with simple timers which are difficult to set optimally), it is often not optimally set correctly.  As a result, the chemical dosing amount can be wrong.  Under dosing can damage equipment and require premature reworks while overdosing can result in over-expenditures of tens of thousands of dollars annually.

The Chemical Injection System monitors, controls and optimizes the chemical injection process to provide a known and measured chemical dosing rate and provides diagnostic information to measure pump performance and operating status.  

The Chemical Injection System automatically calibrates and monitors pump operation to maintain a specified injection rate that may be slaved to production rates. The control and diagnostic system also provides operational visibility into monitoring conditions at the injection site and verifies and records that chemical injection is working to specifications.  Tank level is also monitored to accurately verify when refill is needed and that the refill was accurate.    

Users have the ability to remotely monitor and control parameters and conditions at the injection site from either a local RTU/SCADA system or through a central service such as Wonderware, CygNet or other enterprise monitoring systems. The Chemical Injection System also can be integrated as part of the SignalFire Telemetry Remote Monitoring and Control System for complete wireless pad automation.
