About US

When MRL develops a solution for a client, many existing technologies are available that can be integrated into the solution. Examples of existing technologies include wireless communicators, power systems, cabinets and host computers. Utilizing these technologies is the normal approach offered by most companies that deliver remote data access solutions. Often, the results are less than ideal.

For most MRL clients, the best possible solution requires more than the available technologies. MRL has developed three technologies that, when integrated with the available technologies, create a set of new solutions to the industry that are far more comprehensive and cost-effective to own and operate:

  • Middleware
  • MServ MRL
  • Network

Middleware

The middleware unit, created by MRL, is the central part of a hardware system that provides an on-site link between the instrumentation, communications device and the MRL network.

An MRL middleware is utilized when a client installs an instrument on the oil or gas well, leaves the wellsite and wishes to have access to the data collected. Often the installation is temporary and historically people made scheduled trips to the wellsite to download the readings.

With the MRL system at the wellsite, there is no longer a need to travel to the wellsite to obtain readings. All readings are available on a secure website within the MRL network. The system is self-powered and can run year round so the client can leave the system in place for a day, a week, a month, or permanently.

Middleware solutions are used with:

  • Surface Pressure and Temperature Gauges
  • Downhole Pressure and Temperature with Surface Read Out (permanent and drop spool)
  • Acoustic Well Sounders
  • Well Testing
  • Plunger Lift Controllers
  • Electronic Flow Measurement Instruments
  • Pump Off Controllers
  • Corrosion Monitoring Instruments

 

MServ

Developed by MRL, the MSERV can read files from any PC and communicate those files to the MRL network for subsequent access by the client. MSERV is similar to the middleware except it is a software package (vs. a hardware device).

Clients can access the data from a website within the MRL network or they can connect to the MRL network and build the file on to their PC on a second-by-second basis.

MSERV is ideal for when the data needs to be streamed in. A common utilization of MSERV is in frac vans where the data is compiled in the PC, read by MSERV and streamed through a wireless communicator (cellular or satellite). Access to the data can be within 1.5 seconds of real-time and is updated on a second-by-second basis.

MSERV can also deliver the data to multiple destinations simultaneously.

Examples of MSERV applications are:

  • Fracing Services
  • Cased-Hole
  • Wireline Services
  • Directional Drilling Services
