Release of Enalysis™ Version 3.11

By | Articles, Press Releases | No Comments

Detechtion Technologies, the world leader in compression optimization and fleet management, announced today that they have released version 3.11 of their Enalysis™ product. The current release focuses on multiple user-centered enhancements that improves navigation and usability, enhances fleet reporting capabilities, and provides customers with the ability to configure a critical KPI.

For natural gas compression fleet operators including oil and gas companies, mid-stream operators and National Oil Companies (NOCs), optimizing natural gas compression assets as the critical gateway for getting gas to market is a core business competency. Detechtion Enalysis™ helps these organizations manage their fleets, assuring that asset uptime and gas through-put are optimized while providing predictive analytics and preemptive recommendations to avoid unscheduled downtime and catastrophic machine failures.

A new Fleet Surveillance report provides operating data and compressor warnings on all machines in a defined area or across the fleet to provide efficient prioritization of work activities. This report should be an invaluable tool for foremen, supervisors and engineers who need to monitor KPIs and compression performance and make operating and maintenance decisions.

Based on customer feedback, Detechtion also included enhanced functionality to one of the proprietary KPIs calculated in Enalysis™, blowby. Blowby is a measure of any inefficiency in a compression cylinder. Authorized users can now set higher thresholds for unique situations that require higher blowby thresholds and warnings. This functionality also creates an email notification trail between the customer representative and the Detechtion engineer when blowby thresholds are changed, enabling fleet management collaboration.

Gerry Conroy, SVP of Product and Portfolio for Detechtion, commented: “We are delighted to deliver our third software release of 2014 which focuses on customer-requested enhancements to EnalysisTM. With this release, we consolidated customer-driven fleet management capabilities to make our clients more efficient at managing equipment and getting predictive analytics delivered across their heterogeneous fleets of compression and driver assets. We are excited to continue to invest in our proprietary software analytics which are delivering tens of millions of dollars in value annually to our clients.”

Enalysis v3.10 Release Notes

By | Articles, Press Releases | No Comments

The current release focuses on improving our Enalysis report email notification system. Enhancements were made to the email report scheduling interface to give users more options for fine-tuning what reports they receive.

What’s new?

Your user profile page has been refreshed to give you more control, including updating email notifications. To make changes to your user profile and email settings, simply click your name in the top-right corner of the Enalysis page:

clickuserprof

There are two tabs you can configure, Profile and Email:

tabsuser

Profile Tab
  • Contains your name, address and contact information
  • Allows configuration of your default home page and preferred communication method
  • Allows setting which non-Enalysis report notifications you may wish to receive
Email Tab

The email tab allows you to configure the Enalysis report notification emails that you get. There are three different classes of email triggers that need to be configured separately. First, we have the routinely scheduled Enalysis report emails:

schedule

The initial step is to choose your time zone from the list. Then, a selection between routine daily or weekly emails is made. For weekly emails, the day of the week must also be chosen. Finally, the time of day for the scheduled email must be selected.

The scheduled emails will be sent for all active compressors, regardless of if new data has been entered since the last scheduled email was sent. The scheduled emails will not include the PDF attachment of the report.

The scheduled emails were primarily designed to limit the number of emails sent out for SCADA units. Thus, rather than getting multiple emails a day, setting a once-daily schedule would mean that you get only a single report per day.

Next, Enalysis report emails can be sent when Cash Flow at Risk (CFR) or Priority Status thresholds are met:

cfr flags

cfr flags

If the box is checked, emails will be sent when the CFR is greater than the value selected or when the priority status of the report matches the setting. In the example above, you would receive report emails if the CFR was greater than $50K or if the priority status of the report was red.

The maximum frequency is also set to limit how often CFR or priority reports are sent. In the example above, a report would only be sent every 4 hours, regardless of how many reports are generated that meet the CFR or priority threshold.

The CFR and priority status emails are very similar to our previous options and are designed to send emails only by exception. Thus, you are able receive only higher risk or higher priority reports as opposed to all reports.

You can also choose to receive all reports that are manually entered into Enalysis:

manualreports

If the box is checked, you will receive any and all reports that are entered manually, regardless of any other schedule, CFR or priority settings.

The option to receive manually entered reports was designed for users who want to see all reports because the compressors they manage report infrequently.

Receiving manually entered reports may also be desirable if a manual report is entered to troubleshoot a unit that usually reports by SCADA.

Finally, the email tab lets you configure which compressors you receive email notifications for:

areafield

By default, you will receive email notifications for the same compressors that you have access to. However, the interface above allows you to trim down which compressors you receive emails for.

Notes

  • Your existing notification settings will be migrated to the new system. You are encouraged to make any changes or updates required via the new interface described above.

Added Visibility

1. In conjunction with the changes to the report email scheduling, it is now possible to see who will receive emails for each compressor. To do so, select a compressor and navigate to the “Reporting Compliance” unit setup page:

reportingcompliance

The Reporting Compliance page has two main functions:

  • Setting the expected frequency of reporting for the given compressor
  • Viewing which users are assigned access and receive notifications for the compressor

reportingcompliance2

The expected frequency is how often you expect fresh field data to be entered for the unit. If the goal is for a compressor to report every week, the expected frequency should be set to “1 week” as in the example above. If the unit does not have a report run within the expected frequency, the compressor icon on the map will appear in black.

The table of users displays all users who have access to view the compressor on Enalysis. Each user’s email schedule, CFR threshold, and priority warnings configuration is also shown.

2. The Emissions Report and the Driver Summary Report are now available with data for a single month or a custom date range. Previously, only yearly summaries were available for both reports. Showing the Driver Summary and Emissions reports with monthly data will facilitate environmental compliance reporting.

Investment in Enalysis Pays Huge Dividends to One Client

By | Press Releases | No Comments

View PDF

January, 2013
Calgary

The below summary highlights a tremendous improvement in performance experienced by one of our clients at a Five Compressor Station after some configuration changes were recommended and implemented on January 16th, 2013:

BACKGROUND:

  1. The station consists of five compressors, Ariel KBZ four throw – three stage units driven by Caterpillar G3616 engines.  Each is equipped with ACI automatic un-loaders (Fixed Volume Pockets and valve un-loaders), speed controllers, and suction pressure controllers.
  2. They can be operated in any configuration of 10 separate load steps.   Load Steps 1 through 6 involve double-acting cylinders and load steps 7 through 10 involve single-acting cylinders.
  3. The compressors commenced feeding data into Enalysis on November 23, 2012

IDENTIFIED ISSUES:

  1. The main issue with these compressors was they were operating in completely different load steps even though they were running under the same field conditions.  The suction and discharge pressures were swinging often, causing the compressors to fluctuate between load steps (up to 4 or 5 times or more in a day).
  2. This discrepancy across the compressors was causing the station to run under largely varying suction pressures.  This scenario is not ideal for the compressors or for the wells supplying gas.
  3. At the time of audit, the compressors were not able to move more gas even if the suction pressure set-point was increased.
  4. Additionally, several blowby flags were identified on preliminary Enalysis reports.  One of these blowby conditions was causing its compressor to run into a rod load situation of 96% of maximum allowable rod load.

ACTION TAKEN:

  1. The first step was to address the “easy” fixes by pointing out blowby (valve issues).  These were remedied very quickly by the compressor maintenance teams. The results of these fixes can be seen below: Detechtion Executive Summary. Pointing out blowby #1Detechtion Executive Summary. Pointing out blowby #2
    Unit #1: Detechtion Executive Summary. Unit #1
    Unit #2: Detechtion Executive Summary. Unit #2
    After measuring the result of the fixes involving the two compressors with blowby issues, they were moving approximately 4 mmscfd more (combined) and rod load issue disappeared!
  2. Other than the blowby issue, the compressors were relatively sound from a mechanical standpoint so the next step was to build Optimized Loading Curves for all five of the compressors.  See one of them below: Compressor Unit
    It can be seen that beyond 150 psig, which is when Load Steps 8, 9 and 10 are initiated, the compressors will not move more gas.  Even at 200 psig at Load Step 10, each compressor will move about the same amount of gas (approximately 30-31 mmscfd) as it does at 150 psig with a tighter load step (such as Load Step 6).
    This finding plus the fact that the compressors were constantly swinging between load steps prompted the Detechtion engineer to recommend setting the suction controller at 150 psig (down from 165 psig).
  3. The third step was to utilize the Detechtion loading curves to reconfigure the compressors for more efficient operation.  One positive aspect of the Detechtion curve, is that it shows the actual range of operation of these compressors (which is from 41 psig – 200 psig of suction pressure) at 1250 psig of discharge pressure.  By utilizing the information provided by the loading curve, the client was able to widen the suction controller set-points from a range of 120-165 psig to a range of 70-150 psig.  The benefit of this discovery and subsequent action is that the compressors, which were way too unloaded to meet that tight suction pressure setting, would have a much broader range in which to operate.
  4. The fourth step in the transformation of this compressor station was to make final adjustments.  The information provided by the Detechtion loading curve also allowed for an adjustment of the compressor pressure alarms and shut-down kill switches.  The alarms and kills were tuned according to the new suction pressure range, as per the table below: Alarm and Kills

RESULTS:

  1. The results were immediate. The compressors stopped swinging between load steps because the new range of suction pressures allowed them to run at a lower pressure.  Each compressor finally stabilized at approximately 105 psig.
  2. The compressors were all synchronized at similar load steps; as was expected.
  3. The flow dramatically increased and remained steady, which is beneficial for both the operation of the compressors and of the wells.

This is a snapshot of two points in time (before and after the changes) for the station.  It clearly portrays the significant improvement of the station as a whole: Detechtion Executive Summary. Before/AfterBefore the changes, some of the compressors tended to fluctuate between heavily loaded and heavily unloaded because the ACI controller was trying to meet the limited suction pressure range (120-160 psig), and the station was moving a total of 100.5 mmscfd at 126 psig.  After the changes the station increased in overall flow to 133.4 mmscfd at 106 psig of suction pressure.

This equates to a 33 mmscfd improvement in less than 48 hours.  When the price of natural gas is taken into consideration, the overall improvement in flow equates to a monthly increase in revenue of approximately 3 million dollars!

This can also be seen on the client’s automated flow trend for the entire station:

Automated flow trend for the entire station #1

Before the changes in configuration, the swings in operation are evident.   The arrows on the graph point to large swings in flow – caused primarily by the issues with the station / compressor settings.  Similarly, after changes in configuration were made, the operation of the compressors and the station flow rate improved.  Also, the previous detrimental fluctuations were significantly reduced.

Finally, below, the flow for the individual compressor #5 can be seen. It clearly shows the wild flow swings before the configuration changes (highlighted by the arrows), stopped on Jan 16th.

Automated flow trend for the entire station #2

SUMMARY

Three key items were instrumental in achieving this level of success for our client:

  • The comprehensive nature and precise utilization of the Enalysis system
  • The work and attention by the Detechtion Engineering Account Manager to uncover the opportunity
  • The collaboration of the client and our staff, working together to achieve the same goal

The measurable result is in the range of $100,000 per day of increased production.  This is in addition to intangible improvements such as unforeseeable avoidance’s in compressor downtime, and a higher level of cognizance by the compressor operations team.

CLIENT FEEDBACK

 “…I see the results you accomplished with the configuration changes on the compressors.  I can’t tell you how valuable you and Detechtion have been to our operations.  I look forward to your assistance in the future especially at [this station].  There is a lot of learning with these units that our guys need to develop, and [they] have pretty much relied on [the leasing company] to help with proper loading sequences.  Obviously this has not worked out too well.  Now that you have been working with the guys (mainly Josh), the results have been dramatic… Once again, THANK YOU, for all your efforts.”
