In May, KCF’s SmartDiagnostics® was a finalist at the Shale Gas Innovation Contest hosted by the Shale Gas Innovation and Commercialization Center (SGICC) of Ben Franklin and Penn State.  We were thrilled to be selected as a winner, especially because of the exposure it's given to not only our product, but predictive maintenance in general. Our company is now putting the $25,000 award to good use: building additional systems for trial installations to help spread the word about the game-changing impact on safety and reliability for equipment in shale gas operations.

Two of the demonstration kits have already been deployed at Universal Well Services and Williams sites in Pennsylvania. Additionally, we partnered with ShaleNet to foster the training of technicians in the industry and teach them to use predictive monitoring techniques to improve the efficiency and safety of shale gas monitoring. We also work with leading shale gas organizations including the Pennsylvania Independent Oil and Gas Association and Marcellus Shale Coalition.

Stay tuned for updates on the deployments over the next several weeks.
