The system’s real-time display provides a multitude of information at-a-glance and offers a folder tree, tabs for easy toggling between displays, current drilling status and the ability to setup customized alerts.

Real-Time Solution FAQs

Is rig site equipment required?

Yes, in some cases rig site equipment is required. A laptop/server connected to each service vendor or the Surface Parameter Systems is necessary. However, if the service company is WITSML compatible then rig site equipment may not be necessary.

Can I make changes to the real-time display?

Yes, all users can make changes and save as their personal display. These personal displays can also be shared with team members, if required.

Can I print real-time log plots?

Yes, all real-time log plots can be printed to exact scale on continuous printers, paginated printers and/or Adobe PDF files.

Can I export the real-time data?

Yes, you can export the data to an LAS or CSV ASCI file. You may customize the output selections and save the template for future use.

Can I view data from multiple service companies on the same real-time display?

Yes, there are no limitations to viewing data from multiple sources on a single display.

How long does the data remain on the server?

The data remains on the server until the project is completed at which time you have the option to archive the data to DVD and/or your corporate network. Companies that have installed an internal PetroVault server may keep the data on that server indefinitely.

What data formats does Petrolink support?

WITS, WITSML, LAS, CSV, ASCII, XML, & OPC.
