MicroSilicon Digital Flow Assurance Technology Receives Industry Recognition at World Oil Event
MicroSilicon's Quantum RF device named as a 2018 World Oil Finalist for Best Digital Transformation Technology Award.
HOUSTON, TEXAS, Oct 15 — MicroSilicon is a proud finalist of the 2018 World Oil Awards for Best Digital Transformation Technology. Award finalists were selected from hundreds of entries from around the world by a select committee of industry experts. Winners were announced at a gala ceremony on October 11th at the Houstonian Hotel, Houston, TX.
MicroSilicon’s Quantum RF* system provides E&P Operators with a unique and differentiated flow assurance workflow that relies on digitized chemical properties of the well fluid as it passes from wellhead through surface production facilities. The Quantum RF technology takes the measurement data while the fluid remains at wellhead conditions and without the need to send personnel to location to take a sample, which means that the measurement accuracy is not degraded by fluid exposure to oxygen, atmospheric pressure and temperature.
Unlike chemical measurement systems that require sampling and transportation for lab analysis, Quantum RF data does not require the use of external solvents or time-consuming gravimetric apparatus. Data is available within seconds of the fluid passing through the sensor section. That data is then immediately transmitted to the cloud for processing by AI-driven feature extraction algorithms and subsequent feedback into Customer data streams. Additionally, Quantum RF technology provides unique benefits that build on the immediacy of the chemical data during any change in flow assurance treatment so that the Operator gets real-time feedback on the improvement (or sometimes degradation) caused by that change in treatment.
“We are honored to be selected by World Oil as a 2018 finalist in the Best Digital Transformation category. This nomination provides us with increased motivation to continuing delivering unique and differentiating industry solutions”, said Omar Kulbrandstad, MicroSilicon CEO. “This achievement would not have been possible without the support we received and continue to receive from our Customers, as well as from our highly motivated and committed employees.”
“It is a real honour to be among the top industry leaders named as finalists for the 2018 World Oil Award, and in particular for Best Digital Transformation Technology,” said John Lovell, VP Technology and Strategy. “We look forward to continuing collaboration with our Customers to provide unique and valued digital flow assurance solutions around the world”.
