Sensaphone Develops Satellite-Based Remote Monitoring System for Oil and Gas Wells
To provide instant notification of low tank levels, pump malfunctions and compressor leaks on remote oil and gas wells, Sensaphone developed the SAT4D system.
SAT4D is a satellite-based monitoring system that delivers immediate alerts of changes in conditions at wells, refineries and storage facilities located in areas without a phone line, Ethernet connection or cellular service.
The SAT4D system can monitor virtually any critical condition 24/7, including tank floats, pump status, security, power failure and equipment malfunction. When an alarm occurs, the system sends notification to up to eight telephone numbers and six email or text messages.
The SAT4D system is self-powered and can operate for over three years on its replaceable battery. GPS locator technology pinpoints the location and status of equipment being monitored. Each unit is sealed in an enclosure to protect it from harsh conditions
“With wells shutting down every day, operators are looking for ways to get more out of their wells that are still producing,” said Dave DeFusco, vice president of engineering at Sensaphone. “The SAT4D system is an affordable way to get instant alerts of problems that can shut down production at unattended wells and can cost thousands of dollars in product loss, downtime and repairs.”remote monitoring, Sensaphone
