Virtual Well Site Monitoring - Leading the industry for low cost oil well and pipeline monitoring

Our mission: to replace the routine well site visit with the Virtual Well Site Visit. Our virtual well site monitoring application has delivered thousands of hours back to field operators and operations groups. WatchDog® maximizes production, reduces equipment failures, reduces environmental incidents, and allows operators to grow well count without increasing labor costs.

WatchDog®  is always on duty watching production with our virtual well site monitoring application.

Mature, proven wells provide a steady and predictable return. Unforeseen problems like lower than expected production, unbudgeted equipment repair bills, and costly leaks at injection wells and stuffing boxes take away from their steady return. Operations teams can’t be at every well, all the time. Production problems and leaks never seem to occur when they happen to be at the wells. Constant monitoring is an operator’s dream, but often the return on investment can be years away.

WatchDog’s return on investment is designed to be Operations’ best friend.

A trusted WatchDog® provides an alert!

What if?

…In between on-site inspections, there’s been a change in production that’s costing you money?

…One of your sites, especially an injection well, springs a leak? What if it’s been leaking for hours – or nearly a full day, slowly and undetected?

WatchDog® will bark and deliver an alert to get your attention, 24×7. Operations is only able to physically check the wells a few minutes each day, which leaves a whole lot of time for things to occur, costing you time and money while potentially damaging the environment in the process.

Just like at your house, farm or yard, the WatchDog® has you covered with our virtual well site monitoring app.

Always at your side

WatchDog® connects you to your wells, 24×7. No matter where you are or what other critical, value added tasks you’re working on, you can be confident that your wells and pipelines are being watched for production, equipment status, and environmental safety.

Along with providing peace of mind when you’re not at the wellsite, WatchDog® provides the ability for you to virtually visit the well anytime.

Your judgement, coupled with WatchDog’s constant monitoring and alerts, will allow you to:

  • Manage more wells
  • Deliver steady production
  • Reduce costs
  • Safeguard the environment

Just what you’d expect from your Trusted Partner.
