ScienceDirect defines an oil and gas well workover as: …any kind of oil and gas well intervention involving invasive techniques, such as wireline, coiled tubing, or snubbing. It is an expensive process of pulling and replacing a well completion to repair an existing production well for the purpose of restoring, prolonging, or enhancing the production […]

When you hear discussions about “the cloud” you often also hear about “the edge” where higher resolution processing can be performed. For manufacturers and producers, this edge may extend to the instrumentation itself measuring and controlling the process. In a Control Engineering IIoT for Engineers supplement article, Extend edge data gathering with multivariable instruments, Emerson’s […]

A NACE International paper, HRSG Tube Failures: Prediction, Diagnosis and Corrective Actions highlights the challenge of these failures: Many HRSGs were originally designed for base load operation. Recent economic factors have led to drastically increased cycling of many units. This has exacerbated the rate of failures. These leaks can lead to forced outages that create […]
