Remote Wellhead Surveillance Case Study

Oil and Gas Monitoring-Systems

Terra Ferma, Moxa, and MSI TEC extended IT communications from the corporate offices out to the most remote and harsh industrial environments the oil and gas industries have to face.
Terra Ferma was challenged with bringing remote video surveillance and data acquisition to multiple wellheads scattered throughout the cold, harsh Rocky Mountains of the Central United States. Each wellhead was equipped with various sensors and meters that needed to be monitored and controlled from a central HMI, often miles away from the assets in the field. Redundant solar and wind generators were installed at each wellhead to support the electrical needs of the pump-stations, temperature meters, cameras and cellular modules. In addition to asset management and remote control capabilities, data logging for remote surveillance and alarm notifications was a key demand from the customer. Terra Ferma’s solution needed to be power efficient, reliable, and capable of supporting high-bandwidth data-feeds.

Read the success story and learn how we were able to integrate remote monitoring and control system with the legacy SCADA system already installed on the site, giving the customer significant savings on deployment costs, both in terms of infrastructure outlay and system downtime.
