Keep Data Simple and Get Things Done

Problem Area

You want to monitor your production to increase your bottom line and automation companies want to bring every pressure, temperature, level, and flow right to your computer for all your wells! More data points mean mountains of data and before long the expense of data collecting is taking up too much of your time.

Solution

KEEP IT SIMPLE! Identify your needs, and Sentry Technologies does the rest! Our products and services monitor only the points required without excess data. You control what data you want to see. We know critical data is important for you to keep production flowing.

Benefits

Production and Runtime are up! Net Revenue is up and no additional staff required. The information you need is concise and easy to use. Our equipment contacts your field people directly so your equipment gets fixed faster. Now, you have the data you need and can get on with the rest of your job.

Be the HERO who Increases Revenue while Sentry does all the Work!

Problem Area

You want to monitor your production. No one understands your equipment. No one company provides the equipment, coordinates the installation, installs the equipment, programs the equipment, and services the equipment without expecting you to coordinate every detail. This means you now have to monitor your monitoring project. Sentry has your back!

Solution

Identify your objective, and Sentry Technologies does the rest! We are production people. Our products and services are used on your production. You can trust once Sentry is approved, you control how much you wish to be in the loop. Sentry knows how to hook up a meter run, program plate changes, verify calibration, set up communication, and get the data back to you. Getting your data without tying up your time is what counts.

Benefits

Production is up and downtime is down! Net Revenue is up and no additional staff required. Need a plate changed, a callout moved, a new callout list programmed, or a production report sent, thanks to Sentry Technologies it is done! Now you are in the corner office with the big raise!

Typical Scenario

A Production Manager for a medium size company wishes to monitor over 40 compressor sites operating in various production applications. After selecting Watchdog ST Sentry Technologies gets started. Sentry gathers directions to location and setup information. Sentry programs and tests each unit . Sentry installs and retests each monitor without requiring company personnel on location because of our extensive knowledge of oil and gas production. Final website programming is completed by Sentry personnel completing the 40 location installation in under 2 weeks.

Bring Your Oil Measurement into the New Millennia

Problem Area

Do your gauge reports show negative production? Are you sure tank runs are recorded? Do oil/water interfaces prove inconsistent? On higher volume oil wells inconsistent data gives you erratic production numbers. Bad data costs you money in lost or unaccounted for oil.

Solution

Install STI’s Digital Tank Level System. Sentry uses the Siemens DLS-2100 digital tank level system. This system uses an oil float, water float, and temperature sensor to give you readings accurate to 1/4”. These readings can be displayed on Siemens digital press to read box or integrated into an existing SCADA system. Sentry also offers wireless tank level systems for existing fields by eliminating trenching and cabling across a location.

Benefits

Get your tank readings quickly, accurately, and safely. The base system allows your field personnel to stand safely on the ground and get the top gauge level, water interface level and temperature for each tank. As an option add cellular communication to give you the ability to download the tandata directly to your office from your wellsite!

WatchDog ST Helps Prevent Spills and Production Loss

Problem

Violations of 40 CFR 112 also known as the “SPCC Rule” cost operators up to $5,000 per day in fines. Production losses and field personnel time costs the operator much more. The “SPCC Rule” states operators need a plan to prevent and control releases of produced liquids into the “Navigable Waters”. “Navigable Waters” cover nearly any natural formation which contains or moves water.

Solution

Install WatchDog ST, a cost effective, self contained monitoring and alarm system. If the tanks get too high or the pumps go down the WatchDog ST calls key personnel alerting them to the status of their critical operations via email, text message, telephone, mobile phone, or answering machine. With autodial capability the WatchDog ST becomes the Prevention part of any SPCC plan. With early notification the WatchDogST facilitates Control and Countermeasure keeping you in compliance.

Benefits

Low cost and universal coverage makes the WatchDog ST a versatile alarming platform. WatchDog ST empowers field personnel to know the status of their production equipment at any time, from anywhere!

Monitoring Compressors and Production Equipment to Increase Your Revenue

Problem

Oil and gas companies will continue their current trend toward downsizing field operations resulting in fewer man-hours at any one location. Fewer hours to look for and evaluate mechanical problems associated with critical production equipment such as natural gas compressors. Lost production could cost you thousands of dollars.

Solution

Install Sentry Technologies’ cost effective, self contained monitoring and alarm system. The WatchDog ST provides you voice or data, call-in status reporting, with an auto-dial out feature. Autodial out enables the WatchDog ST to call key personnel alerting them to the status of their critical operations via email, text message, telephone, mobile phone, or answering machine.

Benefits

Gas compressor monitoring combined with proper instruction of field personnel will provide increased production revenues resulting from higher on stream performance. Monitoring also provides the ability to better schedule field personnel. They become empowered by the ability to know what the status of their production equipment is at any time, from anywhere!

Example

When an engine driven compressor used in gas lift applications goes down, so does the associated oil production. Oil production ceases and the associated gas lift vents to the atmosphere until the operator becomes aware of the situation. The operator must then work with the well(s) to re-establish stable production leaving other locations and potential problems left unattended. Re-establishing gas lift production often takes several days.

Other similar applications include the monitoring of saltwater disposal pumps, circulation pumps, transfer pumps, wellhead safety systems, and production equipment.
