Internet used to help companies monitor oil wells

(Dallas-AP) -- For years, the only way to check the operation of an oil or gas well in Texas was to go to the field and look at the gauges.

No more.

Now high-tech improvements have made remote monitoring affordable even for small independent producers.

The newest gadgets were demonstrated this week at a Dallas conference on Internet technology sponsored by the Texas
Independent Producers and Royalty Owners Association.

Regulators are also using the Internet.

The Texas Railroad Commission was represented at the conference, showing off its new online well-permit system.
