Oil and Gas Condition Monitoring

Monitoring and Analyzing Oil Well Fracture Pumps

Robert Stewart, CEO
Lime Instruments, LLC

"LabVIEW has made the software development side much quicker than our past experiences in C-based programming. What most C programmers take two years to do, we can accomplish in a couple of months. We can use that time savings to get to market quicker and capitalize on our competitors’ lag time."

Read case study

NI is empowering engineers to develop industrial embedded systems for the monitoring and control of oil and gas assets. Because of the high investment cost of oil and gas systems, a condition monitoring system is especially important. Condition-based maintenance systems help decrease unscheduled outages and optimize machine performance while reducing maintenance and repair costs. NI hardware and software solutions are deployed around the globe in oil and gas upstream, midstream, and downstream applications.
