UNION PACIFIC INSTALLS AUTOMATED WELLHEAD SYSTEMS

Union Pacific Resources Co. (UPRC), Fort Worth, is installing automated wellhead systems on company operated wells, mostly in Texas and Wyoming. At yearend 1992, UPRC had installed remote terminal units (RTUs) on about 320 wells to monitor operating parameters, measure gas production, and control wellhead chokes. The total includes 44 wells in a successful $1 million pilot project completed last year in Stratton field of South Texas, about 40 miles southwest of Corpus Christi.
