Wireless Tank Monitoring for Speed, Efficiency and Reliability
Josh Peters, a previous Emerson Exchange "Best In Conference" award winner, discusses the search, selection, implementation, and integration of the Emerson Wireless Non-Contacting Radar Solution for Drilling Mud Tank Monitoring.
Josh approached Emerson looking for a fully wireless tank level monitoring solution for the Seneca Drilling Team to implement and utilize for Drilling Mud monitoring and inventory control. Wired solutions were preventative from a cost, implementation, and maintenance perspective since these tanks are often set up, taken down, and moved from site to site.
The search for the appropriate system required Emerson SMEs to pull from past experiences and industry knowledge to determine the best solution for the unique and challenging application. Consider it Solved!

Utilizing the Multi-Port Flow Selector Valve to Minimize costs on Bulk/Test locations
Seneca Resources, an E&P company, is one of the leaders in Automation in the Marcellus and Utica plays. An Automation program was added to utilize Bulk/Test in the Marcellus by incorporating numerous automated bulk and test valves per well. Recently, Seneca deployed it’s second generation Bulk/Test location by using Emerson’s Multi-Port Flow Selector valve, which eliminated the need for multiple valves per well. By using this technology, they were the first to use the Multi-Port Flow Selector in the Marcellus and first to use it for natural gas production on-shore.
Seneca will explain the concepts of how they migrated from conventional automated Bulk/Test, to using this “Cure-All” valve to enhance their throughput and lower Capital and LOE costs.
