HOUSTON, TX (March 27, 2017) – Detechtion Technologies, the global leading Industrial IoT and Mobility solution provider in the oil and gas industry, will be speaking this week at the 8th Annual Cost-Effective Produced Water Management conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Britt Spencer, a Director in Detechtion’s Professional Services organization, was invited to speak on how oil & gas producers are using Mobility solutions to improve the effectiveness and cost efficiency of produced-water management in the Marcellus Shale. A case study will be offered to show how a Mobility solution was used to automate electronic water management run tickets.
Electronic water management run tickets are just the beginning. Water management in Detechtion’s Fieldlink™ Mobility product provides date, time and geo-stamping on all hauling activities to ensure complete accountability for arrival, departure, load and unload events. Source and destination information is captured as incurred including such things as vehicle check-in, custody signatures, and integrated phone functionality. In addition, the Fieldlink™ based, water-management solution also provides scheduling and dispatching, fully integrating with accounting and invoicing systems, to manage the process from start to finish. The solution also includes an automatic pricing module and streamlined invoice approval process between the producer and water hauler.
The new electronic process now generates approved invoices for payment in 2-3 days compared to the several weeks it used to take, resulting in more accurate, auditable data for the producer and more timely payment (and reduced DSO) for the water hauler.
“Water management is a great example of how Fieldlink™, the leading field automation & mobility platform for upstream oil & gas, can drive efficiencies in the oilfield,” advises Eric Neason, Senior Vice President of Products & Services at Detechtion. “But it’s just one of many applications our customers have successfully deployed to automate their production operations including site construction, pumper duties, chemical management, preventative maintenance, and health, safety & environment.”
