Zedi Automation as a Service streamlines oilfield automation
6 March 2019
Current oilfield conditions demand great leaps in efficiency and margins. Because of this, companies are leaning more and more on technology—but they may lack the time or resources to research, purchase, install and train on the most efficient oil and gas production technologies.
Understanding this production obstacle Zedi, a North American technology and services provider for oil and gas production companies, has released Zedi Automation as a Service (ZAaaS). This system slashes automation and control implementation times from the traditional months or years to weeks or less.
Under the idea of “Explore. Do,” Zedi Automation as a Service (ZAaaS) uses best-practice wellsite hardware to collect data, then integrates that into their advanced SCADA platform to quickly and accurately deliver data to decision makers. This quickly gives the company the tools for the best decisions and time to focus on core business.
The entire system is backed by Zedi’s expert service, covering installation, updates, maintenance and replacement of equipment.
“Getting automation into the field is now lightning fast with ZAaaS,” said Zedi’s Senior Director, Technology, Chris Friedel. “It leverages our extensive experience with hardware best suited to your needs in any environment to bring your oil and gas production to new levels—all this without long wait times for engineering, endless worries of financial return and other headaches.”
He added, “It’s the cost-effective answer producers have long needed – best practice hardware and Zedi’s vault-tight secure software platform, delivering complete data when, where and how it’s needed for better decisions.”
In addition to implementation speed, ZAaaS saves up to 67 percent off costs of traditionally engineered automation. ZAaaS is now available for rod pumps, and tanks, adding video surveillance, gas and liquid measurement, ESP, pump-off controller, gas lift, plunger lift and salt water disposal automation as a service soon.
