Patent Images

1. A hydraulic fracturing system for fracturing a subterranean formation comprising:

  • a pump in communication via pump components with a wellbore that intersects the formation, and that pressurizes fluid in the wellbore, the fluid comprising a fracturing fluid slurry;

    hydraulic fracturing system components for making the fracturing fluid slurry; and

    a monitoring system that selectively captures and transmits real time images of at least one of the hydraulic fracturing system components or pump components to enable remote monitoring of the at least one of the hydraulic fracturing system components or pump components;

    wherein the monitoring system selectively captures and transmits real time images of an opening to a vessel, so that a level within the vessel is discernible in the images.
