Wireless instrumentation has been available for manufacturers for more than a decade. Sensors have expanded beyond traditional measurements such as pressure, temperature, level and flow to measurements such as acoustic, vibration, conductivity and more. These easily installed Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT)-based field devices make more than monitoring and control possible—they make real-time personnel safety, […]

As an oil & gas reservoir ages, the composition of the production often changes. For gas wells, this change is often from dry gas to a wetter gas. The wet components can be quite acidic due to CO2 and organic acids contained in this liquid phase. In an Oilfield Technology article, Mitigating corrosion in ageing […]
