Underground Injection Control
YOUR UIC COMPLIANCE PROGRAM
WellAware Underground Injection Control Management automates critical mechanical integrity test program requirements, including continuous pressure monitoring, injection volume reporting, and chemical disclosures.
[Upcoming Webinar: March 11th, @ 1 pm CT]
Using Digital Technology to Measure and Achieve ESG Performance
Automate Your Mechanical Integrity Tests
We’ve simplified compliance with federal and state underground injection control (UIC) programs through automated data collection and reporting.
WellAware helps you:
Continuously monitor casing pressure, tubing pressure, and fluid injection flow rates and volumes every 5 minutes.
Received instantaneous text and email alerts on over-pressure events or potential casing leaks as soon as they happen.
Automatically generate customizable reports that include UIC data to satsify state and federal regulatory requirements.
Disclose compliance or operating performance metrics through compliance bodies or voluntary sustainability reporting.
Wellaware Satisfies State and Federal UIC Regulations
Use WellAware Underground Injection Control Management to achieve regulatory compliance under EPA regulations, or with state-administered UIC programs
