Getting the most out of an oil well is pretty important—we feel confident in making that statement—and at some point, artificial lifts (AL) are a big part of that. As such, you’ll want your AL working as reliably and efficiently as possible. While this is true of all assets, it is particularly critical for those that have a slimmer margin.

Unplanned maintenance is the worst!

The last thing you want from your AL is unplanned maintenance and lost production. It costs money, time and resources that were no doubt budgeted for something else. When a problem is noted, a flurry of activity begins: meetings are called, agendas are created, teams are dispatched—and all this must be reported back to the business. Even if the AL is functioning in a suboptimal manner, you’re leaving money on the table. If it can be avoided, it should. The good news is: we’re here to help.

Streamline your workflow

Engaging HUVR to automate your AL inspection and maintenance workflow is an easy way to take some of that money from the table and put it where it belongs: your bottom line. HUVR’s asset management solutions ensure that maintenance for your AL is as easy as pressing a button. All of the activity happens automatically: stakeholders are alerted, crews are assigned and, when work is complete, that is reported. Rather than a complicated ad hoc meeting, you have a streamlined process that is tailored to your operation that can deliver up to 40% improvement in your inspection workflow timeline.

Maximize your resources

You’re not only making the process more effective, you’re freeing up the resources previously engaged with maintenance scheduling and reporting to do more important work. Furthermore, in many cases, HUVR can help identify potential issues before they become problems. If you’ve ever heard your car engine make a weird noise, ignored it and found yourself stranded on the side of the road, you know the importance of minding those small signs that something isn’t right. This is just as true for ALs as for cars, and HUVR can make dealing with that an easy proposition.

Ultimately, you can expect significant efficiency improvements and the more you streamline and automate your inspection and maintenance workflow, the more value you receive.
