Shift your drilling up a gear with Heatmaps! At the rigsite a picture is worth a thousand data points. Your drilling team – engineers, tool pushers and geoscientists often spend too long wading through large volumes of data to decipher patterns, subtle rates of change, and thresholds being breached. It remains a challenge across the…
We’ve all had experiences of software with tired interfaces, buggy apps and regular crashes – the results are predictable. You either begrudgingly continue working in it, or leave the platform. Crafting great user interface design and user experience (UI/UX) is not simple in any business. Designing visualization platforms in oil and gas is no exception.…
Over the past few decades, the world has seen a speedy evolution of mobile generation technology. From ‘only voice’ analog 1G mobile network to the rise of mobile internet experience and focus on wireless World Wide Web (WWW) – the mobile space has surely changed a lot. With that, the way we use our mobile…
Upstream data management is a complicated process and getting it right is critical. Logs and reports composed using raw real-time or static data are constantly being generated and distributed. Unpicking the strands is not a trivial task. Each contractor has their own database which grows minute by minute – throw in duplicate reports and inaccurate…
Drilling Engineering Today Designing, monitoring, analyzing performance and coordinating onshore and offshore drilling teams. These are just some of the tasks required of your drilling engineers to ensure that a well is executed safely. To bridge the gap between the rig and the office; Geoscientists, the drilling teams, and service contractors, must all work together.…
Remote, on-the-go working has never been easier, but in some ways it has never been harder. The challenge of today’s energy environment is all about staying connected, from anywhere, anytime. The tools that you use play a big part in this and can either maximize your process efficiency or hinder its progress and leave you…
Building up a picture of the subsurface is a massive undertaking, one which takes thousands of hours and a diverse team. Everyone from drilling engineers, geologists and petrophysicists are involved. Unfortunately, on many projects, insights from planning in the office are not transferred to the well site. It is a long-standing issue and without closing…
Data comes in all shapes and sizes, and one of today’s main challenges is having it ready for immediate consumption. With us now amid the 4th Industry Revolution (4IR) we are all looking into using the latest and greatest techniques, but are we getting ahead of ourselves? Let us take a moment to think about…
Throughout the process of drilling a well, issues can arise that can slow down, or even halt operations. Monitoring the various workflow activities at each pod is key to maintaining operations. However, as personnel are only physically able to monitor a few wells with different workflows at the same time, monitoring each pod is extremely…
