THE WOODLANDS, Texas, Nov. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CSI Compressco LP ("CSI Compressco" or the "Partnership") (NASDAQ: CCLP) today introduced Helix™ digitally enhanced compression, a custom telemetry system leading a step change in compression and reliability through the provision of advanced data collection on compressors and engines in real time. Leveraging leading edge cloud technologies and big data, customers can now access their fleets' metrics and performance trends and engage our in-house experts to analyze and interpret data all while maximizing compression reliability and production.

The Helix digitally enhanced compression system delivers real-time remote monitoring and control of compressor fleets. The system communicates at significantly higher fidelity rates, streaming data 1440 times faster than our current telemetry solution. Helix digitally enhanced compression uses big data to improve performance, reliability, and predictive maintenance.

"Not only do customers benefit from real time visibility into the performance of each compressor unit, our partnership is expected to further improve operating margins by allowing our field personnel to apply predictive maintenance best practices to enhance run time and minimize down time," said Roy McNiven, senior vice president of operations. "Currently we have completed approximately 25% of the hardware upgrade roll outs on our high horsepower compressor units and expect to be fully deployed by the end of 2021."

As part of our Helix digitally enhanced compression development, CSI Compressco is the only oilfield services company to partner with Houston's Rice University D2K program, a partnership specifically designed to analyze big data and develop machine learning models that enhance current predictive maintenance programs.
