Leveraging RFID traceable drill pipes, the Shengli Oilfield is able to track 1,380 drill pipes at seven well sites using RFID handheld readers and software supplied by VictorySoft. The pilot operation took around three months with every well opening a depth of approximately 2,500 meters. Access This Premium Content - RFID Journal. Aug 23, 2015— The North West Redwater Partnership (NWR) Sturgeon refinery project, being built in Alberta, Canada, promises to be one of the most advanced facilities of its kind in the world.

Gasification technology, selected by NWR as an integral part of its refining process, will enable it to produce CO2 along with diesel fuel and other products. The CO2 will be pumped into old or marginally productive oil reservoirs by a third party to recover light oil that would have otherwise gone untouched—permanently sequestering the CO2 in the process. NWR—jointly owned by North West Upgrading and Canadian Natural Upgrading—says this process yields environmental benefits. It estimates the 1.2 million tons of CO2 that phase one will capture every year is equivalent to taking nearly 300,000 cars off our roads.

Worker safety, billing and operational efficiency gains are behind COTEMAR's decision to utilize Wi-Fi-based radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology from Redwood City, California-based AeroScout.

  COTEMAR Tracks Offshore Workers with RFID Tags  

COTEMAR, which services oil and gas platforms operated by Mexico's largest petroleum company, has deployed AeroScout's Real-Time Location System (RTLS) on four of its offshore housing vessels that support PEMEX's oil and gas operations in the Gulf of Mexico. Jasminia 1 COTEMAR previously had adopted RFID technology into its operations, but still faced challenges in tracking workers as they moved between the floatels and the platforms.

The bar code system the company was using was giving inaccurate readings. The system also slowed worker movements as they had to stand in line to swipe their cards when moving around.   Efficiency, Safety Spur RFID Development for O&G Sector   Edison Chouest Offshore Deploys Mojix STAR System in RFID Initiative to Equip Large Scale Shorebase and Offshore Logistics Operation - Mojix Inc.

RFID underground well help miner to achieve maximum oil valve - Sichuan zigong power station valve manufacturing co., LTD. Petrobras Opts for RFID to Track Drill Pipe. Weatherford International Ltd., a global provider of products and services for oil and natural gas wells, is employing radio frequency identification to track its drill pipes destined for offshore oil rigs owned by global energy company Petrobras, headquartered in Brazil.

Petrobras Opts for RFID to Track Drill Pipe

The system is provided by Trac ID Systems, a Norwegian provider of RFID solutions. Weatherford tracks thousands of pieces of equipment leased to companies throughout the world, and also provides inspection services and maintenance for those assets as they are used on customers' work sites. To track its equipment, Weatherford uses enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems to manage data regarding all equipment on its sites, as well as the serial numbers marked on the pipes themselves.

Statoil to Use RFID to Manage Drill Pipes at Offshore Rigs. Global oil and gas firm Statoil has begun the deployment of a low-frequency (LF) radio frequency identification solution that will track the use of drill equipment as it is lowered into and removed from offshore drill holes, thereby retaining a record of how much and how frequently the equipment is used, and thus the amount of useful life it retains.

That information will allow the company to better manage its inventory, and ensure that equipment is not used longer than it should be, or discarded before reaching the end of its lifespan. The solution, known as the Drilling Operations Tracking System (DOTS), is provided by Norwegian RFID firm Trac ID Systems, and consists of 125 kHz RFID tags and readers compliant with the ISO 18000-2 standard, as well as software to manage the RFID read data.

Statoil's Marianne Høie Statoil maintains offshore oil-drilling operations worldwide, including in the North Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, as well as off the coast of Africa. Nabors Canada Selects TrigPoint For Assets and Operations Management. RFID-Based Asset Management. To keep oil flowing to meet customer demand in the global marketplace, equipment must run at peak efficiency, making inventory management a key objective.

RFID-Based Asset Management

Managing assets, spare parts, contracts, clients, locations, service tickets, and more is essential to project success. RFID technology streamlines these inventory business processes by: Increasing the automation of product movement and supply Ensuring optimal use of all assets Reducing inventory carrying costs Protecting against unplanned downtime Ensuring cost-effective regulatory compliance The use of RFID can automate the tracking of everything from safety equipment to tools, parts, valves, and wellheads, starting at the moment of arrival in your facility to the end of the asset’s life.

But to complete this massive pipe-laying project on time, they needed innovative ways to address labor shortages in the area, such as an automated way to track and update the status and location of materials trucked in every day, as construction workflows rely on material availability. They also needed to store and stage materials off-site and minimize environmental impacts of the project. Solution To support this project, Bentley and Intelliwave integrated ConstructSim and Intelliwave’s SiteSense RFID tracking solution.

Outcome. Access This Premium Content - RFID Journal. Aug 19, 2013— Drilling reamers are specialized tools used by oil and gas companies to bore holes through the earth at extremely high speeds.

Conventional reamers offer reliable service, but the mechanical method of activating and deactivating the tool—dropping a steel ball down a drill string, or pipe, until it shears a pin preset at the surface—offers limited control. To reset the tool, a user must pull the reamer out of the hole, which is a time-consuming and costly exercise. What's more, the ball can interfere with other tools operating inside the drill string. Chinese oil field operator deploys RFID for asset tracking. Petrobras: new contracts for high valued-added services. More than a supplier of products for various industry segments, Vallourec works continually to reaffirm its worldwide leadership in premium tubular solutions. A proof that this positioning progress has yielded positive results to the market is the signature of two agreements to provide services to its main client, the Brazilian company Petrobras. The announcement took place last February 26.

The partnership with Vallourec accompanies the longevity of the oil company, which will turn 60 in 2014. From 2001, that partnership has been intensified even more with the signing of a master agreement for pipes supplying.
