PADPro® Wellsite Control Panel

Well Manager
Well Manager (WellMgr) is one of two standard modules within PADManager that support pre-programmed well management. PADPro® has an Android-based LOI providing access to the system’s configuration utility. The screen is a powerful computer allowing operators to easily configure custom applications to meet the demands of any well pad.
Tank Manager

Tank Manager (TankMgr) is one of two standard modules built within PADPro® and QLogiX that support tank management automation. Together with the Cause and Effect configuration utility, this module allows operators to easily configure custom applications to meet the demands of any well pad. As a result, this utility is among the industry’s most cost-effective methods for well site automation.

Open Controller
PADPro® is not locked down. Operators can create custom solutions using the built-in functionality within PADManager. Additionally, ladder logic code can be added to augment and PADPro® application. Changes are quickly made using the provided Schneider Electric Telepace programming tool.

Dynamically Populated Screens
The patented, user-friendly software within PADPro® drastically reduces programming time.

What Pulls This All Together?
PADManager is the revolutionary C-Application created by Strata for Schneider Electric 300 Series controllers and 4203 Flow Computers. This patented application is what is behind the modular programming method. Functionality is fixed for typical C applications. PADManager is different because it consists of a collection of functions and modules assembled to meet the needs of a particular application. Tailored to the upstream market, it provides a high degree of flexibility and capability.
How does it Work?

This solution enables non-programming users to create robust, standardized solutions easily. The result is a dynamic method of providing programming for a PLC without editing any PLC programming code. The PLC is left unlocked, so the use of Telepace Ladder Logic and the ability to load additional C language applications is possible. PADPro® uses Modbus TCP Ethernet communications and Modbus RTU/ASCII/Enron for Serial communications.

C-Language firmware and TelePACE enabled programming tools sold separately.

Local Data Historian
  • SQL database with MS Excel reporting
  • Data Historian (30 seconds, 1/3/15 minutes, 1-hour, and daily records for all data points)
  • Logs all changes to C&E (Cause & Effect) Matrix – MOC compliance
  • Digitally records liquids custody transfer details (load type, driver details, and transfer data) to access anytime via a simple SQL query.
  • Open Protocol – works with most PLC/RTU, hardware, or end devices
  • Local or remote access to Data Historian and configuration programming through browser-based utility
  • Existing SCADA and/or business systems can query the SQL database or pull records with the system’s interface
Powered by Android and SQL
  • 240GB memory
  • No specific software required to configure, no special HMI programming required
  • SQL database – no SCADA host protocol needed to pull data
  • View Pad-wide data (up to 32 wells), including trending for tanks, tank groups, and wells
  • Dynamic, digital-clipboard reporting feature – allows for easy display of user-defined data points
  • Centralized dashboard for alarm notifications and setpoint data
Ease of Android HMI at the Wellsite
  • Easy to view – 7” high-resolution screen
  • Patented self-discovery graphics
  • The easy-to-operate touchscreen interface is similar to a tablet or smartphone
  • Easy-to-read alarm notifications
  • Serves as a local Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Features local webserver
  • Local database historian supports trending in high-resolution and reporting
Custom Screen and Other Programmable HMI Options
  • PADPro® does not require an Android display
  • PADPro® has the flexibility to incorporate alternate screens, including Red Lion, Maple, and others

Well Manager

About Manager
Well Manager (WellMgr) is one of two standard software modules within PADManager that support pre-programmed well management. In addition, PADPro® features an Android-based LOI to provide access to the system’s configuration utility. This screen is a powerful computer that allows operators to easily configure custom applications to meet the demands of any well pad. This is just one of the reasons PADPro® is such a cost-effective solution for well site automation.

About Well Mgr.

  • Configurable module for controlling oil and gas well pads– no programming required
  • Configurable alarms and shutdowns
  • Controller-based email alarm notification – no need to connect to SCADA host
  • Manages up to 32 wells per controller
  • Timely notification of volumes or outages for nominations
  • Platform for collecting and sharing data analysis for production forecasting
  • Drives standardization of processes
  • Monitors production and provides access to change parameters of operations
  • Integrates with any host system and EFM’s for monitoring flow
Free Flowing Well
  • Drives consistent and rapid deployment of well automation
  • Offers same-day, high-resolution, flow back on new drills, maximizing new gas opportunities
Wells Operating in Artificial-Lift
  • Single configuration for operating wells in manual, intermitted, and plunger lift modes
  • Manages and controls gas lift systems
  • Manages data and can shut-in wells with Pump Off Control (POC), Electric Submersible Pumps (ESP), and Progressive Cavity Pumps (PCP)

Tank Manager

Tank Manager
Tank Manager (TankMgr) is one of two standard modules built within PADPro® and QLogiX that support tank management automation. Together with the Cause and Effect configuration utility, this module allows operators to easily configure custom applications to meet the demands of any well pad. This utility is the main reason Strata’s controller solutions are among the industry’s most cost-effective methods for well site automation.
Tank Management with the TankMgr
  • Relays instant notifications, alerting producers, liquids carriers, and others to high and low-level tank readings
  • Liquids transportation, to and from the well site, can be automated – keeping facilities running with maximum efficiency
  • Configurable module for monitoring and managing liquids production via tank level integration
  • Calculates inflow and outflow totals of each tank or group of tanks, without meter hardware
  • Configurable integrated email alarm notifications and shutdowns – no need to connect to SCADA host
  • Reduces costs and error-prone activities of manual, labor-intensive tank monitoring
  • Local annunciation and trending
  • Integrates with most tank level measurement devices & protocols – maximizing use of existing equipment
  • Full color, high-resolution graphics that convey tank level information
  • In a single view, operators can read tank levels in five different ways:
    • Feet or inches
    • Barrels or gallons
    • As a tank graphic
    • As a percent of full
    • As a graphical trend
    • ,

What Makes TankMgr Unique?
Because of its ability to accommodate a variety of container shapes without the need for unique formulas for volume calculations:

  • Vertical and horizontal cylinders
  • Vertical and horizontal ellipsoid tanks (bullet tanks)
  • Square and rectangular tanks
