CyboSoft and Impact Solutions Sign
MFA Control Software
RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif., March 12, 2008 - CyboSoft today announced that it has signed a long-term software license agreement with Impact Solutions Group of United Kingdom for its Model-Free Adaptive (MFA) control software. CyboSoft's patented MFA control technology has been embedded and delivered as part of Impact Solutions' Secure Drilling system for oil and gas exploration.
According to Helio Santos, Impact Solutions' President, "CyboSoft's MFA controllers can effectively control the extremely nonlinear choke control loops and provide fast and consistent control performance within the entire operating range. Using MFA, we no longer need to worry about control loop tuning and performance problems. Our new MFA-based Secure Drilling system will provide a safer, more flexible, and optimized drilling operation for our customers."
CyboSoft CEO Dr. George Cheng said, "We are pleased to offer a good control solution for the award-winning Secure Drilling system for the oil and gas exploration industry. In an environment where the oil prices set new record highs everyday and affect the world economy, we want to team up with industry leading companies to help address the energy crisis and fulfill the needs in green manufacturing."
Impact Solutions' Secure
Drilling™ is a system based on the Micro-Flux Control method and operates in a closed loop. It analyses all available drilling data and automatically controls the back pressure at surface to maintain the well under control at all times. This way the well can be drilled under desirable conditions including over-balanced, near-balanced, or under-balanced; with constant bottom-hole pressure, constant injection pressure, or any other condition deemed appropriate at any time. This provides total flexibility and safety to the operation, allowing full optimization with a reduction in risk and costs.
The control system for Secure Drilling uses the National Instruments Compact Fieldpoint programmable automation controllers (PAC) and LabVIEW software as well as a special version of the MFA Control Toolset for LabVIEW software from CyboSoft. Jason Hannam, Impact Solutions’ product development manager, said, “This combined hardware and software solution makes it possible for us to easily build a special control system that meets our stringent and mission critical control requirements and offers a flexible, affordable and developer-friendly platform for building modern control systems.
