Upstream Solutions

NI PACs deliver small footprints, extended temperature and vibration operation ranges, and the necessary flexibility to meet a variety of application needs in the upstream sector.

Featured Case Studies

Mud-Gas Separator - Petrobras

Petrobras deployed an instrumentation and control system for a mud-gas separator used in underbalanced drilling. With flexible NI data acquisition hardware and LabVIEW software, Petrobras developed a real-time event interpretation system that improved decision making and increased the safety of its drilling operations.

Cement Analyzer - Halliburton

Halliburton developed a stand-alone ultrasonic cement analyzer using NI CompactDAQ hardware. The small size of NI CompactDAQ helped minimize the footprint of the analyzer, and the modularity of the platform provided the ability to incorporate additional measurement types for special deployment requirements.

Coil Tube Drilling Control - Schlumberger

Schlumberger deployed a redundant drilling controller for an Alaskan oil drilling operation. With LabVIEW Real-Time and NI PACs, Schlumberger created a monitoring alarm system with control and shutdown capabilities. This prevents costly pump damage and environmental hazards, as well as makes pump operation safer and easier.
