In Western Canada, CHOPS (Cold Heavy Oil Production with Sand) is a common production in heavy oil, especially in locations that produce sand and have high water lift requirements. The large number of these locations, coupled with their unique monitoring needs, encouraged HSI Security to develop a surveillance system for them.

With HSI security, our thermal capabilities will detect

  • leaks,
  • heat trace failures,
  • tank foam overs,
  • leaks on tanks,
  • leaks on well heads,
  • leaks on flow lines,
  • leaks on pipelines,
  • leaks on site, etc.

Our sound capabilities make it possible to listen to failures (grinding pump jacks, pump jacks off balance, failing motors, leaks, gas leaks, pressure issues, people on location, etc.)

Our systems offer Pan Tilt Zoom (PTZ), which means the camera can spin 360 (x-axis), zoom into a site, and tilt up and down (y-axis).

These features are important on a CHOPS application as most locations are single wells, requiring a lot of travel. Having the ability to save travel time, and in essence have sight and sound on the ground in a moment’s notice, is the next best thing to being on location.
