Monitoring asset integrity and lowering operational risk case history – BC, Canada
Recent field deployments of Wi-Corr saw 8 sensors and transceivers fitted to a very remote Canadian upstream asset of a major Oilco.
The asset was suffering from significant and unpredictable sand erosion. The images above show a Wi-Corr sensor being adhered in sub-zero temperatures in a typically-difficult location, where erosion-corrosion was known to occur.
For this campaign Wi-Corr’s mesh network is interfaced with an on-site cellular modem to transmit all data back to Fort St John and Calgary.
The sensors have remained in place and have been reporting several times each hour since late 2017.
Wi-Corr Arabian Gulf
Recent deployments of Wi-Corr saw units fitted to an onshore Arabian Gulf
asset of a major national Oilco. A specific advantage of the Wi-Corr system
is the separation of sensors and radio transceivers, which allows great
flexibility in placement of the transceivers when optimising the radio-
frequency pathways. This leads to less reliance on costly repeaters to help
get all data back to the control room.
