The SG-SMART data-acquisition system is an advanced driller’s monitoring system that can accurately measure, monitor, and display all drilling variables in real time. This computer-controlled data-acquisition system employs integrated micro-controller technology and fiber optics to provide accurate, instantaneous measurement and display critical drilling data.
The patented SG-SMART data-acquisition system provides intrinsically safe operation in hazardous locations. The SG-SMART, available in the basic Level I or more advanced Level II versions, is practical and easy to use. The modular features of SG-SMART make it expandable for future technologies.
The M-I SWACO SG-SMART measures a host of critical variables for real-time display, including:
The SG-SMART Level I provides basic monitoring and measurement functions of PVT (up to 10 pits), gain or loss, PVT for two trip tanks with gain/loss, total pump strokes (5 pumps), return-flow rate (0 to 100%), fill-stroke count (each fill and total).
The Level II system monitors and tracks additional information, including ROP, RPM, pump pressure, hydraulic and rotary torque, weight-on-bit, and hook load.
