In September 2000, eLynx Technologies, Inc., along with its parent company, American Central Gas Technologies (ACGT), began work on an automation and control project with Devon Energy Production Co., L.P. As a result, Devon experienced cost reductions and increases in employee efficiency. The project took place in the East Texas field surrounding the Carthage area – one of the largest natural gas producing fields in the nation. The work was completed in March 2001.
Before the project, Devon had 24,030 hp of compression installed throughout the field. With horsepower spread throughout such a large area (Fig. 1), maximizing efficiencies became an issue. Although the operator leased most of its compression, it owned five electric units totaling 4,600 hp.
