Permanent Monitoring

Real-time pressure and temperature systems for progressive cavity pump, hydraulic lift (sucker rod), gas lift, injection, and reservoir monitoring.

DataCan’s permanent monitoring systems allow users to place pressure and temperature gauges in the wellbore and, using an armored mono-conductor cable, transmit downhole pressure data to the surface in real time. DataCan’s permanent monitoring systems use quartz or piezo sensor technology in a highly reliable, electron beam welded, hermetically sealed gauge. These gauges are held in place using a gauge carrier and gauge protector custom designed to suit the customer’s needs. DataCan provides high or low cost clamps and cabling solutions as well as CSA approved wellhead exits. DataCan’s surface box comes standard with a display and memory and an output signal allowing you to control pumps or valves. You can also transmit collected data via a cell phone or satellite modem right to your desk. DataCan systems are designed to run on 12V and a solar power cell can be supplied if required.

Permanent monitoring systems are growing in demand. The installation of a DataCan permanent monitoring system is very simple. This simplicity leads to higher system reliability. The simplicity also helps to lower costs, lower installation times, and fewer mistakes. DataCan’s permanent monitoring system is a very economical reservoir evaluation solution.

- Instant feedback on reservoir changes
