In 2019, Crew began trialing remote monitoring on our heavy oil well sites. Over the course of 2020/2021, Crew installed SCADA remote well monitoring systems on 20 oil wells within Crew’s Saskatchewan Heavy Oil operations (Heavy Oil Assets sold as of August 1, 2021). This represented over 50% of the operating wells in the area. All SCADA well-monitoring instruments purchased are solar-powered with battery backups.
Installation of remote instruments helps streamline site visits and reduce GHG emissions by decreasing the number of trips to remote locations required by field operators.
