High OPEX? Frac efficient and environmentally responsible!

EKU is an automation company that improves the utilization and flexibility of existing infrastructures. Our mission is to change the energy and equipment utilization to increase equipment effectiveness and production efficiency. Schedule a meeting at the HFTC with our experts (info@ekupd.com), come to our booth # 3 or visit us at www.ekupd.com.

  • The low oil price environment is challenging operators and service companies in the US Oil and Gas industry to reduce production cost. Well stimulation operations are OPEX intensive, and frac gathers most of that burden. A typical well site can easily exceed 35 MW of installed power. Therefore, the power automation potential to increase margins from well – site operations is immense. The central theme is to boost the return on net operating assets by lowering OPEX while maintaining the same productivity.

    EKU in partnership with one of its clients had begun to test the first phase towards Frac Automation. The project goal was to eliminate 95% of idle operation and enable to have the full power within seconds without increasing the wear on the equipment. The innovation brought to light one of the best qualities of electric engines. The ability to automatically take over a frac pump behavior according to operational needs. 

    The results, intensely tested during ten months in the Permian Base have shown: Asset effectiveness increase on 51%, drastic fuel cost reductions, less maintenance and higher equipment availability. 

    If you want to know more about it or obtain the business case.

  • Engine Standby Controller (ESC)
    ESC is a proven technology that already enhances the equipment of leading oil- and gas producers in the Permian and the Bakken to reduce OPEX while increasing productivity....

  • "Idle time is an issue across most pressure pumping fleets. It adds unnecessary wear and tear to the engine hour meter and needlessly burns fuel."

    The ESC system maintains engine readiness during the non-operating time, while automatically shutting down the powertrain when it is not pumping, and immediately restarts to full load upon request. The system replaces the existing battery, and adds an external fluids circulation and heating system to the powertrain, thus enhancing the system with an EKU energy management controller.The equipment that is turned off has no wear and tear, emissions or fuel consumption. The ESC system manages to keep the powertrain under OEM specifications during its READY period (e.g. engine off between stages) for a healthy re-start to full load.

    ESC enhances your fleet with:

    1. Reduce frac pump idle hours up to 95%, while converting these into pumping hours
      • Less fuel consumption
      • Longer maintenance intervals (e.g. 500 hr to 1000 hr)
      • Delay rebuilds 
    2. Increased equipment value (revenue / costs)
      • Higher load factor
      • Record your equipment lifetime history 
      • Predictive maintenance
    3. Reduce footprint
      • No tractors
      • Reduce traffic for fueling
      • Less emissions
