The Invisible Killer – How to Prevent H2S Exposure at Wellsites

There are many potential dangers at wellsites, and one of the most insidious is accidental inhalation of toxic gas. Hydrogen Sulfide—also known as H2S, sewer gas, swamp gas, stink damp, and sour damp—is a colorless gas known for its pungent “rotten egg” odor at low concentrations. H2S can be found at any wellsite, and the

A Highway Training Session

The first thing we discuss when developing new product ideas is the user experience. We ask questions like: “Who will be working with this product?” “Is its functionality easy to explain?” “How can we minimize the variables affecting its operation?” Another critical question we ask is “How simple is it to install?” We know you

An image of MIT's recent global study showing different industries' path to "digital maturity." The oil and gas industry is shown as being one of the slowest to achieve this status.

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.

Two diagrams of Kimray valves, one showing the open position and the other showing the closed position.

Should My Valve Fail Open, Closed or In Place?

  Should your valve fail open, closed, or in place? Despite how it sounds, “valve failure” does not mean that the control valve itself has failed. In the event of power loss, a control valve will “fail,” or stop, in one of three positions—open, closed, or in place. Today we will look at what these

An aging Kimray well. Kimray provides several products to benefit an aging well, including the Electric Submersible Pump, Gas Lift, and Plunger Lift.

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
