Diagnose, and analyze reservoir conditions

Acquire pressure, temperature, and vibration measurements for in-depth identification, diagnostics, and analysis of equipment operating problems and changes in reservoir conditions with the Phoenix CTS cable-to-surface artificial lift downhole monitoring system. The system enables more effective intervention strategies, better equipment protection, improved well integrity, and optimized production and recovery.

Collect and transmit data

Multiple sensors mounted on the production tubing either above or below the artificial lift equipment collect and transmit data to the surface via an independent encapsulated instrument cable. Advanced transducer technology, state-of-the-art microelectronic components, and digital telemetry ensure that data are highly reliable and accurate. For example, the critical measurements required for pressure transient analysis are obtained by sampling the data every 2 seconds.

Monitor and control

Either the UniConn universal site controller or the Instruct all-in-one acquisition and control unit can be connected to the Phoenix CTS monitoring system to provide remote access and control from a single platform. The data can be further integrated with the Lift IQ production life cycle management service for 'round-the-clock surveillance of all monitored parameters via satellite.

The system is SCADA ready and has a Modbus protocol terminal with RS232 and RS485 ports for continuous data output.
