New digital oilfield technology streamlines wellhead monitoring
The technology eliminates the necessity of daily "pumper duty" to check on production of oil at the wellhead, and wellhead data can easily be accessed by iPhone, iPad or other similar wireless device.

Broadleaf Capital has announced it will offer a new service to the oil and gas production community that will provide wireless monitoring of oil and gas wells using a breakthrough technology that allows producers to significantly lower the cost of operating wells from today's industry standards. The technology eliminates the necessity of daily "pumper duty" to check on production of oil at the wellhead, and wellhead data can easily be accessed by iPhone, iPad or other similar wireless device.

Damon Wagley, president of Broadleaf Capital, commented: "Our new wireless remote monitoring service is truly a game changer for the oil and gas production industry, in particular for the smaller independent operators.  It is both time consuming and expensive to physically send crews out to check on producing wells every day.

“This new wireless remote monitoring system will allow immediate notification reports to be sent to oilfield operators concerning production problems needing attention, quantities of oil and gas produced daily, wellhead pressure, temperature, and a variety of other factors that can adversely affect oil and gas production on a 24/7 basis.  It will even allow wireless remote adjustments to pumps and quantities produced, without needing a crew on site.

“Operators will only need to send crews out when needed, and routine tasks may be handled electronically instead of by a crew physically at the site. Most importantly, we should be able to offer this service at a significantly lower monthly cost than has previously been available to the oil and gas production community.  We are currently designing the specifications for retrofitting wells currently serviced by our subsidiary, Texas Gulf Exploration and Production, and look forward to launching this wireless remote well monitoring service to other operators after installation and comprehensive testing is completed on those wells."
