The United States oil and gas industry has 6,292 flares that burn off 10.65 billion cubic meters of natural gas every year. To operate these flares, they must comply with specific regulations set in place by government entities such as the EPA. One of the recent regulations is Method 22, which states that the operator of the flare must monitor their flares 24 hours a day and report on potentially harmful flare behaviors and black smoke production.

Twin Eagle Solutions has created a solution that allows oil and gas companies to autonomously monitor flares 24/7 and alert on Fugitive emissions, black smoke, and any other anomalies that are potentially harmful. This solution is called Flare and Smoke Vision, and it is a part of our edge computing platform called VisionAery.

Machine Learning Automates Flare Monitoring

Flare and Smoke Vision is an edge-based platform that utilizes machine learning and artificial intelligence to monitor flares 24 hours a day. The solution applies machine learning in multiple areas throughout the platform. First, the camera has machine learning capabilities that allows the end user to do basic analytics on site. That data is then fed into our edge computer which is where the VisionAery Optical Sensor Management and Flare and Smoke Vision Software is hosted. From there, the end user can set specific rules and set up their flare monitoring system. Once the system is set up, Flare and Smoke Vision automates the flare monitoring process and sends alerts to the end user based on the rules and parameters they set up.

Edge Computing Capabilities

Flare and Smoke Vision uses Twin Eagle's VisionAery edge computing platform for all data processing needs. This is an important addition to the solution because it allows the end user to take advantage of the full power of Flare and Smoke Vision without having to be concerned about the strain that data will have on their networks, SCADA systems, Databases, Clouds, and more. Another great advantage of edge computing is that the software needed to run the analytics for Flare and Smoke Vision can live on the edge device rather than the cloud or the company headquarters. Lastly, Twin Eagle's VisionAery Edge Platform was built to ensure that customers could add future technologies to it and still have plenty of processing power at the edge

Automated Optical Sensor Management

Any system deployed in an oil and gas environment is only as good as it's ease of use. That's why Twin Eagle developed it's VisionAery OSM (Optical Sensor Management). With the VisionAery OSM, the end user can easily interface with the technology they have deployed in their field. They can also set automations for site surveys or reports, and program new technologies while sitting at their desk. The best part is that it lives locally on the edge computer, and automates visual inspection processes whether or not someone is controlling it. Of course, the end user can manually control everything by simply logging in and viewing there assets remotely. The VisionAery OSM makes remote monitoring easy and affordable.

Integration Made Easy

Twin Eagle Built VisionAery with the primary goal of making the end users life easier. Part of making things easy is making your system easy to integrate and maintain. The system comes with built in cellular capabilities as well as a WAN port so that the end user can easily add the new VisionAery system to their network. Also, if the end user prefers to monitor the VisionAery system through their SCADA, then it can easily speak common coding languages such as MQTT. The system also comes installed with a managed switch that can bump ports individually allows you to power cycle equipment remotely. Another great feature that comes standard is a power monitor and controller that the end user can view and control remotely. Lastly, Each VisionAery system comes with the 21 years of experience and support of Twin Eagle Solutions 

Optional Stand Alone Design

As an option to all Twin Eagle Customers, we offer a turn-key stand-alone skid with solar to support any VisionAery systems the end user may have deployed in their field. The end user can mount their cameras, radios, antennas, and enclosures on this skid. Also, the skid is heavy enough to be placed as a permanent fixture on a site, but they are light enough to be loaded onto a trailer and easily moved from site to site. This allows the end user to use their VisionAery systems where they most need them. The solar attached to the skid provides the VisionAery system 3 days of autonomous power assuming it is at full charge. This design makes it easy for Twin Eagle customers to utilize all of the capabilities of the VisionAery system without the need for existing infrastructure to mount on or power at the site.
