Chapter Nine: Pressure Injection Measurement at the Wellhead for Monitoring, Control and Compliance

If you operate a Class II well and are injecting pressure for underground flooding you are likely subject to regulations such as California Title 14 1724.10.4.  The California regulation imposes fines of up to $25,000 a day for well operators that cannot demonstrate effective pressure monitoring. This white paper guides you through implementing what you will need to be compliant in California, but the approach is adaptable for any state:

  • Collect real-time data from field-based sensors and issue monitoring status securely over the cloud.
  • Send continuous data securely via cloud directly to your IT system.
  • Meet monthly reporting requirements by reporting on the highest injection pressure at each injection well.
  • Implement alarm management protocols.
  • Configure controls to prevent injections from reaching maximum allowable surface injection pressures.
  • Maintain records indefinitely.
