StimCommander Pumps automated and intelligent rate and pressure control was developed to address many of the problems in today’s high-intensity hydraulic fracturing market. By fully automating all high-pressure pumps, the system’s rate control is more efficient, consistent, and safe. This operation is optimized to increase pump efficiency, minimize equipment failures, and reduce downtime on location. In addition to maximizing pump reliability, the automation enables pressure as a direct input and feedback to the system. This pairing reduces dependency on individual operator decisions while delivering desired rates more quickly and consistently. StimCommander Pumps control uses inputs from reservoir evaluation tools, including the Schlumberger Kinetix reservoir-centric stimulation-to-production software
to enable real-time optimization of the treatment.
