Wellhead Monitoring and Control

The growing demand for energy has required oil and gas companies to discover and extract optimized output from additional oil and gas fields. They are increasingly taking exploration efforts into more remote locations, further and further away from the central hub, which requires safe, efficient, centralized control and effective remote management. Increasing uptime and productivity in both new and existing fields while reducing capital and operational expenditures to increase return on investment can deliver a strategic competitive advantage.  

Increasing uptime and reliability with integrated safety and control

GE understands the criticality of your operations, and we combine extensive domain experience with deep oil and gas expertise to offer proven, reliable and safe technology solutions for intelligent wellhead monitoring and control—supporting your needs for ultra-dependable production, accurate measurement, and fault-tolerant communications to the control room SCADA.

Our unique wellhead monitoring and control solution encompasses our robust PAC8000 Remote Terminal Unit (RTU), which enables you to monitor, diagnose and maintain your utility assets—even in the most hazardous environments. In addition, you can leverage the capabilities of our SIL 2 functional safety system, which delivers reliable control and safety on a common platform, and the ability to combine multiple wells for maximum efficiency and production optimization.

Key benefits:

  • Improved safety and control of your production with a single integrated solution and flexible, open communications options
  • Increased reliability due to the ability to operate in temperature ranges of –40C to +70C, resistance to 30g shock, 5g vibration and G3 corrosive environments
  • Increased availability of the SIL 2 function and reduced rate of nuisance trips due to optional redundant controllers, power supplies and local area networks
  • Enhanced asset performance visibility due to powerful HMI/SCADA visualization and control, and HART® passthrough capability that easily interfaces with asset management software
  • Reduced capital expenditures and operational expenditures with enhanced asset control and improved decision making
