Compressor monitoring is critical to a company’s success in oilfield operations, because it can have a direct impact on the bottom line. If a compressor goes down or is taken offline, an oilfield owner or parent company could expect to lose thousands of dollars for each lost hour of production.
To prevent such a costly disaster, compressors require monitoring to detect any critical event that could signal maintenance or deployment of personnel to fix a problem. Whether you’re maintaining compressors for your own oilfield, or you’re tasked with managing a customer’s compressors, Bluetick’s Compressor Monitoring Solution will ensure optimal performance of assets and people.
With the Bluetick RMC compressor monitoring solution, field technicians can track equipment to ensure that it is performing at optimal capacity, while also receiving notifications when an error condition is identified. Sensors are attached to the compressors to collect continuous data on the asset. The Bluetick RMC system then uploads the captured data to secure cloud storage via cellular or satellite network, which ensures seamless data transfer. Compressor operators can track the data to prevent costly repairs, thus saving time and money.
Bluetick’s Compressor Monitoring lets you decide how much or how little information you need to keep your compressor running smoothly.

When it comes to managing production and coordinating maintenance, oilfield owners can use Bluetick’s RMC compressor pressure and temperature data to determine which assets need to be evaluated first. The call-outs from Bluetick’s RMC system can also help the technician determine if a site-visit is necessary or if the problem can be remedied remotely by shutting off the asset.
If a site visit is required to fix a compressor, the data from Bluetick’s RMC system increases the efficiency of work orders. After reviewing the compressor data, oilfield owners can quickly respond by deploying a technician with the right tools and parts to complete the work. The compressor management services provided by the RMC system will improve compressor uptime, reduce labor costs and yield greater field productivity.
