The Sasquatch Plunger Velocity Sensor is the next stage in the evolution of plunger detection. In the artificial lift system called plunger lift, Sasquatch will measure the surface velocity of the plunger in addition to detecting the plunger arrival. Repetitive fast plungers are a common problem in plunger lift causing costly damage to equipment and production downtime. Damage to surface equipment, such as a lubricator breach, can lead to incident reports, spills and injuries. Sasquatch gives producers the power to prevent these occurrences by enabling detection of fast plungers long before they cause problems. To read a related case study, click here.
PMWO is an advanced user program designed to maximize production from oil and gas wells. The program is intended for either the ROC800-Series Remote Operations Controller or the FloBoss™ 107 Flow Manager.
This application note will detail the device setup so PMWO can communicate with Sasquatch. Additional configuration to retrieve and store the surface velocity in PMWO’s logging features will be described in later sections.
