Advantages of LoRa Modems in Smart Oil Fields

By sdga:NiceRF Wireless Technology Co., Ltd

Smart oilfields are the future of oilfield development. Traditional oilfields collect production data by means of on-site inspections by operators, which is not only time-consuming and labor-intensive, but also the risk and accident information is not updated in time, which may lead to casualties. Therefore, the traditional oil field will eventually be replaced by the smart oil field. The smart oil field adopts the LoRa modem communication technology to monitor, control and collect data on the production operation status, environment and safety status in real time, so as to achieve the purpose of unified management and reduce the wiring cost.


Oil industry production is a high-risk industry, and safe production is very important. In oilfield production, most of the raw materials and products are harmful substances that are easy to burn and explode. A little carelessness will cause casualties and national property losses.

Traditional oil fields

Disadvantages of traditional oil fields

1. Traditional oilfields use manual inspection to collect production data, or to prevent illegal personnel from intrusion through inspection, which not only has a long cycle, but also has a large delay in collecting on-site information.

2. Oilfields are generally located in remote areas, and manual monitoring may lead to risk accidents (such as oil and gas leakage, combustion, etc.), and there is no gas detection facility on site, resulting in no alarm or untimely alarm, which is likely to cause accident expansion and casualties.

3. Various monitoring systems are isolated, and managers cannot grasp enough information. The existing communication method is mainly voice, and the method is single, which cannot quickly locate and solve problems, which is easy to cause accidents to expand.


Application advantages of LoRa modem in smart oilfield

In the oilfield oil well wireless monitoring scheme, the acquisition and monitoring points such as oil wells and injection wells use the LoRa modem to collect data. After connecting to the management center through wireless communication technologies such as WIFI and GPRS, managers can monitor and manage production and safety conditions in a unified manner. When an accident occurs, you can have enough information to locate the specific accident location and arrange rescue.
