"The Evolution of Data Collection for Gas Measurement"

Evolving communication technologies are revolutionizing SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems just as new technology in drilling and production are revolutionizing the way oil and gas wells are produced. In today's oil and gas environment, production volumes are many times greater than they were just 10 years ago. The price of these natural resources is down significantly from where it was in 2008 so, for producers, it has become increasingly more important to run more cost-effective operations.

Today, more pre-planning and system design are necessary to build an expandable, scalable communications network. These systems are much more complex than the older systems but provide far greater versatility and are far more robust than the systems built 10 or 15 years ago.
