IWS Edge computing to improve unconventional hydraulic fracturing

Tuesday, December 14, 2021

Oil & gas company internal algorithms and data analytics can now be implemented on the Edge at the wellsite or in the Cloud.

Intelligent Wellhead Systems Inc. (IWS), a leading supplier of digital technologies that improve oil and gas well completion operations, announced that oil and gas company algorithms to improve completions may now be combined with hydraulic fracturing, wireline, and pressure control job data to create customized workflows, threshold alerts, and other analytical applications.

The company's inVision Technology Platform features a powerful data acquisition and control system, iHub, which is a proven digital technology infrastructure at the wellsite for hydraulic fracturing and wireline operations. The latest innovation for the platform is the ability to leverage the iHub infrastructure provided by IWS to implement operator-driven analytics on the Edge or in the Cloud. The iHub delivers field-proven data acquisition, storage, bi-directional sync, Edge computing power, and an open infrastructure to enable operators to deploy and implement their own proprietary algorithms or digital workflows on the Edge or in the Cloud.

VP Innovation Bob Duncan commented, 'There is growing demand from E&P data science teams and completion engineers to implement their software developments on the Edge or in the Cloud. We now have a proven solution of equipment, infrastructure, and hands on the ground to make these implementations possible in a cost-effective manner.'

The inVision Technology Platform integrates engineered safety controls, automated digital standard operating procedure compliance, and Digital Handshake processes to improve the safety and efficiency of hydraulic fracturing valve activation and wireline operations.
