Pressure Pilot

Metal to metal sealing system for reliability in high H2S & CO2 environments.

Providing extreme performance in high H2S/CO2 environments, the Pressure Pilot’s modular gauge design and metal-to-metal sealing systems put this 1.25" OD Memory Gauge in a league of its own.

The Omega Pressure Pilot has been designed for Slickline memory and real-time SRO applications. It utilises modular gauge design for quick and easy serviceability. The Pressure Pilot incorporates a welded transducer sealing system, patented by Omega, which prevents penetration of the seal. This gauge is particularly suitable for deployment in high concentration ‘sour gas’ environments.

Features

  • Welded transducer sealing system ensures data integrity by not allowing anything to penetrate the seal (perfect for high concentration H2S/CO2 environments)
  • Unique metal-to-metal seal is much more effective in preventing gas leaks
  • Modular concept - with replaceable electronics and transducer, this gauge is fully field-serviceable, resulting in reduced operating costs and down time
  • Several pressure ratings up to 25 ksi operation
  • Ideal for use with Shock Housings and Gauge Carriers
  • Can easily convert to a Surface Read-Out (SRO) Gauge providing increased utilisation in both E-Line and Slickline applications. Available in 1.25" and 1.5" OD versions

Applications

  • Gradient surveys
  • Pressure build-up or draw-down test
  • Production monitoring and artificial lift control
  • Production optimization
  • Reservoir evaluation and well testing
  • Slickline and E-Line operations
  • Static flowing and build-up surveys

Specific Applications

  • High concentration H2S/CO2 use
  • Multiple well surveys without re-programming
