Description

"Turning Oil & Gas Data into Knowledge"

Why don’t the two most critical industries in our history—energy and information technology—work more closely together? Investment in and adoption of information technology and systems that help companies understand and run their businesses better has been readily adopted in other industries. Oil and gas is still relying on massive, time consuming system integrations, disconnected software, 20-year old IT infrastructure, paper, and excel to run businesses every day. We are very good at collecting good data. We struggle to understand the story it tells us.

Amazon can tell you when you need to order an item to receive it in two days. Target is predicting pregnancies. Ditch Witch is using predictive analytics to reduce repair and maintenance costs. Uber lets you catch a ride and pay from your phone. 

Why does it take hours or days to know what the full history (both field and repair) of an asset is? Why do we hire expensive engineers to spend 80% of their time cleaning data in spreadsheets? Why can’t I immediately tell you the last five jobs a DD was on and his performance? Why don’t I really know what it costs me to run a job? It’s time for our industry to start thinking differently about data and the story it tells. It’s time for our industry to raise the bar for the systems that hold its data and the user experience our people have with the software they use every day.
