Data analytics firm eLynx partners with University of Tulsa to drive artificial lift

6/15/2016

TULSA, Oklahoma -- Artificial lift will be pushed to new heights by a recent partnership between eLynx Technologies and The University of Tulsa.

eLynx will bring an enormous cache of operational data to the partnership from its more than 16 years of experience monitoring over 37,000 wells in all the major U.S. basins. The data will be analyzed and algorithms will be created to help predict future production patterns.  

“Fortunately, our hometown university happens to be one of the best oil and gas research facilities in the world when it comes to oil and gas production, artificial lift and creating a smart oil field,” said eLynx President and CEO Stephen Jackson. “We have a vast amount of very good data and we want to put it to work for us with the help of Dr. Holden Zhang, director of TU Artificial Lift Projects (TUALP), and his team.”

eLynx’s partnership sets the stage for a long-standing relationship with the university’s innovative research program to help identify, test, and develop optimization strategies and collect a unique understanding of the data produced. As a member of the consortium, eLynx will have access to its experience and knowledge, including an industry-leading modeling program.

“We already provide the best models for oil and gas production design and operation optimizations, but with eLynx we will be able to access a wealth of field data to enhance the models and develop methodologies for potential problem diagnosis,” said Zhang, who also serves as a professor of petroleum engineering at TU. “Utilizing remote well surveillance can provide detailed information about production trends. The sooner we can identify a potential problem, the better production rate and efficiency we can achieve, which will change the practice as we know it.”

eLynx has contracted with Zhang as a consultant, tapping into his knowledge and respect within the industry.
