Remote well site monitoring? That’s just one name for it.
Remote wellsite surveillance. Remote monitoring. Those are two common names for what we do. We’re actually partial to the term Virtual Wellsite Visit. Maybe because we invented it? At their core, all these terms are about the same thing: enabling the operator to focus their efforts on locations with priority issues to address.
For the WatchDog team, it’s about more than just the technology. It’s about the journey that operators go on and how they think about their assets in the field. It’s about how simply and easily they can make decisions. And, ultimately, it’s about changing behavior. We’re here to help operators evolve how they monitor and manage their assets so they can focus on critical operational demands.
Get actionable decisions, not just data
We know operators need actionable information to optimize their operations, not more data to decipher. WatchDog delivers information on an exception-basis so you can identify priority issues before they become major problems. And we integrate effectively with SCADA.
Maximize production without driving up costs
We know operators need to meet production targets and balance them with cost management. WatchDog helps you reduce your runtime expense and increase production. You’ll know when to go to the wellsite, and when you can just monitor.
Mitigate the costs of equipment failures
Equipment failures can limit production, put unnecessary demands on your team in the field, and lead to major environmental and reputational issues. WatchDog reduces the chance of equipment failures and helps you limit their impact if they do happen.
Protect your team and the environment
The more miles your team logs on the roads, the greater your GHG emissions and the greater the chance of someone suffering an injury. With remote monitoring, you reduce your organization’s environmental footprint and help keep your team safe.

Frequently asked questions about remote monitoring
What is remote monitoring?
Remote monitoring, also known as remote well monitoring, wellsite surveillance or virtual wellsite visit, enables oil and gas operators and pumpers to understand what’s happening at a wellsite without physically being there. It uses technology to remotely collect data and provide real-time insights into well operations.
How much does the WatchDog Virtual Wellsite Visit cost?
A basic package starts at $1K – $5K depending on application requirements and configurations in the field. Tell us what you need and we will work with you to find the best solution for your use case.
When may you need remote monitoring?
Remote monitoring in oil and gas is valuable in various situations. It is especially beneficial when you want to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs, enhance safety, minimize environmental impact, and gain real-time visibility into wellsite activities. It is particularly useful for operators who want to monitor and manage their assets remotely without the need for frequent physical visits.
Why choose AFTI WatchDog’s remote monitoring service?
AFTI WatchDog is the industry’s leading remote oil field monitoring solution for the oil and gas sector. We offer a comprehensive package that not only provides advanced technology but also supports operators with real-life training. With WatchDog, you can expect actionable decisions instead of overwhelming data, maximized production without driving up costs, mitigation of equipment failures, and improved team safety and environmental sustainability.
What is the difference between remote monitoring and traditional on-site services?
Remote site monitoring eliminates the need for frequent on-site visits by leveraging technology to gather data and provide real-time insights remotely. Traditional on-site oil and gas services require physical presence at the wellsite, which can be time-consuming, costly, and potentially risky. Oil and gas remote monitoring offers a more efficient, cost-effective, and safer alternative by delivering virtual wellsite visits and enabling operators to make informed decisions without being physically present.
What are the benefits of remote monitoring?
Remote oil field and pipeline monitoring offers several benefits to operators in the oil and gas industry. These include:
Real-time visibility: Operators can access real-time data and insights from wellsites, enabling faster decision-making and improved operational efficiency.
Cost reduction: By minimizing the need for frequent physical visits, remote monitoring helps reduce travel costs, operational expenses, and equipment downtime.
Enhanced safety: Operators can keep their teams safe by reducing travel risks and exposure to hazardous environments.
Environmental sustainability: Remote monitoring helps reduce carbon emissions by limiting travel and decreasing the environmental footprint associated with on-site operations.
Proactive maintenance: By detecting issues early, remote monitoring enables operators to address potential problems before they escalate, reducing equipment failures and minimizing production losses.
