SGS Receives Innovation Prize for Intelligent Well Technology
The Energy Institute has awarded SGS its prestigious 2014 Innovation Prize in recognition of the development of the AutoGORTM, the first fully automated fluid analyzer that can operate at a well site.
Developed at SGS’s Applied Technology and Innovation Center (ATIC) in Houston, the AutoGORTM is the first step toward intelligent wells that stream real-time data. It produces superior quality data and requires no human intervention for the analysis per test. It can operate offshore, onshore and in any climate.
The AutoGORTM provides a unique, innovative solution to some of the challenges faced by the oil and gas industry. It allows reservoir engineers to better manage and forecast production. By reducing the number of skilled and experienced technicians required on site, it simplifies onsite transportation and accommodation logistics without sacrificing data quality. It will help optimize operations within the oil and gas upstream industry.
Set up in 2009, the ATIC is SGS’s Center of Excellence aimed at providing new and innovative solutions in the Oil and Gas sector. The AutoGORTM is one of its latest innovations.
