The Way We See It: the Digital Oilfield

A recent global study by MIT found that the oil and gas industry is one of the last to arrive at what it called “digital maturity.” In our our view there are two primary reasons for this: power and communication. The majority of well sites are not close to major metropolitan areas—they are remote operations.

Which Electric Actuator is Right for Me?

At the core of the oil industry’s move toward digital, low-emissions operations is the process of control—valves and valve actuation. In our effort to increase our automated, zero-emissions solutions, Kimray is offering two electric actuators, both effective, and both distinct. In this piece we’ll look at some specific features and typical applications of the Tritex

Explainer | Three Artificial Lift Methods for Aging Wells

Upstream oil and gas producers are often looking to get increased efficiency and make their operations leaner, and never more so than in our current climate. One proven way to do this is to maximize production on the wells they currently have open through well stimulation. The more these existing assets produce, the better. There

Electric Products

Over the last decade, as concerns about environmental protection have grown and emissions requirements have been updated, oil and gas producers are increasingly looking for ways to lower their atmosphere emissions levels. In 2012 the EPA published “Code of Federal Regulations 40, Part 60, Subpart OOOO”—”Quad O” for short. These regulations apply to all onshore

Field Report | An Electric Solution for Plunger Lift

Plunger Lift Plunger lift has provided our industry with secondary recovery for many years. It has taken on a more prominent role with the recommendation of the EPA that plunger lift be used instead of gas blow down as a way to alleviate bottom-hole pressure and remove liquids from the wellbore. The purpose of this
