Installed on the current vendor’s hydraulic valve controls, these lockouts are controlled by the inVision SIMOPS software and are an engineered solution to inadvertent valve actuation. Emergency bypass options are both physical and digital.
Every approval process conducted to remove and place frac or wireline is documented and visible in real-time from anywhere in the world from the inVision Remote Operations Interface.
A digital control and authorization process that has been designed to prevent inadvertent valve operation on active frac or wireline operations. To start the process, a user requests access to a well. If the inVision System detects an unsafe condition, the request is rejected. An unsafe condition may exist if wireline is in hole and the user is requesting access to unlock a well, or if frac is detected. Once the inVision System has approved the user’s request, a three-way handshake is initiated. The three-way handshake requires approval of the requestor and two other approved users onsite. To approve the request, a user enters the PIN code assigned to them, and this process is recorded and logged. A user may also reject the request and log a reason.
This process can be done by any inVision SIMOPS Interface and completed by the respective user from their workstation, i.e. Wireline Cab or Gun Trailer, Frac Data Van, Well Site Manager’s Office or at the Accumulator Control Station.
