Use your engineers, not external specialists.

Your engineers already know your wells, and they’re certified for your worksite. Plus, we’d like to imagine they’re pretty good at their jobs. That’s why they should have the power to install a well monitoring solution themselves, not rely on an external specialist to come in and set up the system.


When you buy HiberHilo, you can put your engineers through a two-hour training session that teaches them how to install the solution. Then, on their next trip out to the wells, your team can install the sensors and gateways themselves. They’ll be able to get support from the HiberHilo team, of course. But thanks to our wealth of documentation, they probably won’t need it. 

Get set up in less than three hours. 

Even with your team running the operation. HiberHilo’s fast to set up. In fact, there’s just a few steps.  


Step 1: Install the gateway

The first step for installation is to get the gateway set up. The gateway is how HiberHilo sensors connect to the satellites. It’s basically a sleek, 4-kilo box that you bolt down somewhere on your structure. It has two antennas. One for receiving data from HiberHilo. And one for transmitting that data to space. 


Step 2: Do a LoRa check

Once the gateway is installed, it’s time for a quick LoRa check with one of the sensors. Just grab one of the pre-configured sensors you’re going to use, open an app on an ATEX-safe phone, and make sure the sensor shows up in the software. 


Step 3: Install the sensors and confirm their connection

Done with the gateway and LoRa check? Good. Now it’s time to install the rest of the sensors on your wellheads.


HiberHilo sensors come pre-configured, so you don’t have to fuss around with the sensor after you pull it out of the box. Just screw the standard half-inch NPT connection into the Christmas tree, and you’re done. It’s faster than making an appointment at the doctor’s office.


After you’ve installed all the sensors, you will need to confirm that they’re all connected and sending data to the gateway. You can do this by connecting to the Via gateway’s WiFi hotspot with a laptop or a smartphone, then opening up the dashboard. You’ll be able to see all of the sensors in one slick overview and make sure they’re sending data.


Step 4: Give your teammates high fives. 

Look at you. You’re done. Last thing is to run through the installation checklist and confirm that the solution’s working. And you should see the data start to roll into your dashboard in about 15 minutes. 

Skip production pauses.

Sure, HiberHilo’s easy to install. But the bigger benefit is that you don’t have to stop production just to get a well monitoring solution put in place. With other well monitoring options, you may have to pause production for weeks while you build out scaffolding and navigate a complicated installation process.


Not only is it expensive to install one of these solutions. But it also incurs a high opportunity cost. The weeks that you aren’t producing oil are weeks of missed profits. 


Get great data, simplified.

There are a variety of reasons to go for a more complicated well monitoring solution. But, there are countless reasons to use a simpler option instead.


In all, HiberHilo gives you data that’s 99% accurate and reliable, without the costs or hassle of wired or traditional satellite monitoring systems. It’s easy to install, easy to use, and easy to fall in love with, once you try it.
