With oil prices at an all time low, cost cutting initiatives and social distancing in place, monitoring your downhole data remotely makes perfect sense!
"You Can't Manage What You Don't Measure"
Many energy companies are not equipped with the modern technology required to allow for remotely monitoring and managing their wells.
In the midst of all this, energy companies still rely on their field personnel to travel to site and physically check on the status of their wells. They’re exposing their crews to driving in poor road conditions, and increasing the risks of having an accident on the road or at site. They’re also incurring the incredibly high costs of personnel, equipment, and transportation required to get physical measurements from their many well sites.
Workers travelling to site could also be exposing themselves and others to COVID-19 if social distancing is not adhered to. Based on the current Government regulations for Social Distancing, we may have to adhere to these rules for quite a while which will continue to have a dramatic effect on how crews go about their activities.
These risks and costs could be safely and efficiently eliminated if companies had reliable modern systems which allowed for remotely monitoring and managing their wells!
At GEO PSI we can provide you with a cost effective system to effectively manage your wells remotely… Our G6 Downhole Data Gauge Controller!

Our G6 converts the downhole pressure and temperature data to a format that can be easily understood and accessed remotely by the operator through our Ignition system.

The fantastic thing about our downhole systems is that they are compatible with any PLC, VFD, SCADA, Satellite, Memory Module, or Radio Telemetry on the market!
For those extremely remote areas with winter access only, our G6 uses very little power and works perfect with solar applications.
Our system is also designed for reliability, each G6 controller is IEC 61326 certified by LabTest Certification Inc. Our process prevents system failures due to incorrect field wiring, poor quality power source, improper grounding, and lightning strikes.
As discussed, now more than ever, a remote monitoring system for your wells makes sense.
Some of the many benefits that will come from remote monitoring include:
- Easily monitoring the pressure of shut-in wells
- Allowing your team the ability to adhere to current social distancing measures
