OleumTech and Production Control Services Partner to Provide Oilfield Automation Solutions

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - May 5, 2010) -  OleumTech and Production Control Services (PCS) today announced that they have partnered to offer the Oil & Gas market digital oilfield automation and wireless SCADA solutions. The companies' combined offering provides operators a single source for automated well control, field data acquisition and wireless tank level monitoring.

OleumTech and PCS have already completed and deployed a successful joint automation project for a large Oil & Gas producer in the DJ Basin.

"By combining our respective strengths in well control, information gathering and delivery, and wireless telemetry, OleumTech and PCS are uniquely positioned to better serve our customers," says Vrej Isa, Chief Operating Officer at OleumTech. "Moreover, PCS' sales and service locations in the major Oil & Gas plays will accelerate delivery of intelligent automation solutions."

The two equipment manufacturers will leverage their market-specific expertise, ranging from field control systems to remote sensors, to offer operators a broader range of well monitoring capabilities. Under the partnership, the PCS 4000 Controller®, which serves as the master controller in the PCS Well Automation/SCADA system, will incorporate wireless sensor data from OleumTech's WIO® transmitters.

"In the face of growing environmental and safety issues, today's Oil & Gas producers are tasked with finding cost-effective ways to manage risk. Additionally, as drilling moves to harsher and more remote locations, the need for remote well control and data acquisition continues to increase. PCS is pleased to partner with OleumTech to offer customers a comprehensive, one-stop source for single-well and multi-well SCADA solutions," explains Andrew Boldt, Vice President of Sales for PCS.
