The PID controller entry in Wikipedia highlights the beginning of proportional+integral+derivative control going all the way back to the 19th century: PID controllers date to 1890s governor design.[2][3] PID controllers were subsequently developed in automatic ship steering. One of the earliest examples of a PID-type controller was developed by Elmer Sperry in 1911,[4] while the […]

A colleague pointed me to an article with an in depth analysis on the reasons behind the drop in oil price over the past several months. This economic climate makes oil & gas production project and operational efficiency even more important. At last summer’s Unconventional Resources Technology Conference (URTeC), Emerson’s Michael Machuca presented a paper, […]

One of the most basic functions in an oil and gas production process is the separation of the oil, gas, basic sediment, and water. The production separator handles this function. This separation step in the process allows the flow or production rate of the individual component streams to be measured, providing essential information on the […]

Going back to 1980s when I worked on offshore oil & gas production projects, it seemed that well test measurements could be a tricky business. Even with today’s technologies, the increase in unconventional oil & gas production continues to make well test measurements a challenge. In an E&P magazine article, Benefits of best practice maximize […]
