The oilfield monitoring automation system

- Jan 07, 2021-

The oilfield monitoring automation system came into being under the rapid development of petroleum technology. Through the data monitoring equipment installed in the oil well and the 4G industrial router to form a wireless network, the oilfield production wireless real-time monitoring SCADA system can be established, which can monitor the operation status of the oil extractor at the well site. The relevant data is transmitted to the monitoring center of the oil production department, so that the information network of the oilfield has been built or under construction is extended to the wellhead, realizing the real-time transmission of oil well data and the seamless link of the information network, and gradually forming an information network integrating oilfield production management and monitoring So as to become the overall solution for oil field oil well and production scheduling management.


 The oilfield data acquisition system is a comprehensive system integrating computer technology, communication technology, data acquisition technology and sensor technology. Through a high-precision data collector, it can obtain the current, voltage, temperature, pressure, liquid level, and flow rate installed on the oil well equipment. , Water-bearing sensors and other data are transmitted to the control center using communication interfaces and transmission equipment to realize comprehensive monitoring of the oil extraction process. Most oil wells in oil fields are distributed in various oil production areas. The monitoring and control of oil wells' working conditions has always been an important and difficult content in oil production. Generally, oil wells are inspected regularly by oil well inspectors or maintenance workers. With the modernized management of oil fields With the continuous improvement of the level, the early inspector method has gradually been replaced by unmanned oil wells.


This system mainly includes two parts: hardware and software. The hardware part includes pressure transmitter, intelligent flowmeter, remote switch well device, 4G industrial router, solar power supply system (optional), wireless remote control main unit (RTU), transmitting and receiving antenna, sensor, motor monitoring device, etc., software The part includes the command center management platform, electronic well patrol software, the main control computer operating system in the station, configuration software tools, etc.


The oil well working status sensors mainly include temperature sensors, voltage sensors, motor current sensors, and monitoring switch disconnect/close sensors. They transform the working state of the oil well into the corresponding voltage or current value and send it to the remote intelligent wireless RTU.


The system has an expansion interface, which can be added according to the actual field control situation of the oil well. The oil well RTU consists of a high-performance single-chip microcomputer with A/D and D/A converters, a power management circuit, a battery power supply circuit and a wireless data transmission station. A/D conversion converts the analog signal sent by the sensor to indicate the status of the oil well into a digital signal, which is then transmitted to the central computer room by the 4G industrial router.


The power management circuit is used to monitor the AC power supply. Once the AC power is cut off, it will automatically switch to the animal battery. When the AC power supply is normal, the AC power supply is restored and the battery is charged, and the RTU power supply is always maintained. After the transceiver of the monitoring center receives the signal from the oil well remote control and telemetry host from the air, it amplifies and demodulates the radio frequency signal and restores it to a digital signal and sends it to the central industrial control computer for processing and calculation to monitor oil well working conditions in real time. When there is an abnormality, the central industrial control computer immediately sends a control command to the oil well remote control telemetering host to control the motor to stop for repair. In this way, the automatic operation of the entire system can be realized, and the entire system can be monitored unattended.
