inVision® software technology includes a Remote Operations Dashboard that visualizes critical completion data to help users reduce risk, lower cost, and improve uptime. The real-time, configurable digital display, a virtual Digital Completion Twin™ window into all onsite operations, is accessible on inVision SIMOPS Wellsite Tablets and on desktop computers in the office. Visualizing valve placement, well activity status, and an operational Digital Handshake™ log capturing frac, wireline, and pressure control activity data helps reduce human error and improves decision-making.
The inVision Technology Platform features the robust iHub™ data acquisition and control system. This digital completion technology brain at the wellsite implements inVision processes and operator-driven analytics on the Edge or in the Cloud. iHub technology delivers field-proven data acquisition, storage, bi-directional sync, Edge computing power, and open infrastructure to implement frac, wireline, pressure control data, controls, threshold alerts, and analytical applications.

The inVision Technology Platform sensors include:
- Valve position sensors enabling digital verification of valve position to eliminate manual visual inspection.
- Valve handle position sensors giving users a visual representation of the wellhead valve alignment by measuring the position of the control valve handle.
- Pressure sensors on pumpdown lines, missiles, and on the back side of each well that detect when frac pressure exceeds frac threshold pressure to prevent users from unlocking the wrong valves.
- Wireline spools that detect the presence of wireline in the well and prevent users from unlocking valves that may cut wireline.
Without a digital completion technology to improve safety and efficiency, paper checklists, radio calls, and meetings at the accumulator are required to approve a well swap sequence. When inVision workflows are adopted, a significant improvement in wellsite communication and situational awareness in valve sequencing is achieved. The inVision Digital Handshake™ process and interlock controls keep well swaps safe and streamlined. If a user requests access to a well and the inVision software detects wireline in the hole or active frac pressure, the request is disabled. If the system detects it is safe, and the request is approved, the three-way Digital Handshake process (WSM, frac tech, W/L) initiates over inVision SIMOPS Wellsite Tablets. Each user enters a unique PIN, and the process is executed and recorded. If an unsafe condition exists, the inVision system locks out the relevant valves and notifies the user, then unlocks once safe conditions are restored. Automating valve operations achieves a step change in wellsite safety and improves stage efficiency.
The inVision track record of helping to complete more than 50,000 stages without incident has allowed IWS to implement best practices and technology options that can be tailored to each operator’s needs.
When considering digital completions technology to improve performance, insist on these best practices:
- Rig up with proactive safety measures
- Multiple operator and servco personnel can perform better with <1 hr training
- Digital lock-outs/tag-outs fully customized and enhanced standard operating procedures
- Customizable engineered controls with pressure, wireline, and valve position sensors
- Valve position sensors with unlock sequencing
- Digital Completion Twin visualization and a Digital Handshake approval process
- Customizable displays: well control state, all servco data, activity identification, etc.
- Remote operations with a customized dashboard showing real-time job and data visuals
- Digital standard operating procedure (SOP) compliance
- Consistent meta/data model with time series data regardless of third-party vendor
Compare the difference our proven inVision Technology Platform best practices can make to your completion operations, and you’ll see significant risk reduction, lower cost, and improved uptime.
