To reduce power usage and wear and tear on pumping equipment, low producing wells are often placed on timers. This study demonstrates how timer settings can be rapidly and effectively optimized using detailed measurement of tubing pressure. Pressure monitoring devices, based on an internet of things (IoT) architecture, were installed on the flow-t of 24 pumping wells, gathered and stored per second pressure data, and used it to establish optimal timer settings.
