Sperry Drilling services' InSite® data management service can be a key enabler, allowing drilling and other relevant rigsite data to be collected, transmitted, replicated and managed in real time. The InSite service is a common platform for replicating wellsite data generated and acquired by Sperry. The wellsite instance of the InSite service communicates with a remote-site InSite system server, creating a duplicate database which can be used for remote-site analysis, as well as for providing data to a corresponding InSite Anywhere® web server.
One major reason for the selection of the INSITE system for many customers is its ability to offer the greatest user flexibility. The service can provide closer team collaboration and real-time data utilization in a comprehensive way to improve placements of complex horizontal wells. The INSITE service can also assist with:
Acquiring field data in real time-advances in technology are providing wider and greater capabilities for new, more reliable, accurate and rugged downhole sensors and tools. They are increasingly able to collect and transmit information to the surface as it is happening-in real time-enabling faster and more informed decisions. Many customers are using the INSITE system as a common data acquisition platform for our services.
Information management-wellsite information can come from many sources, both downhole and surface. Sperry uses the INSITE system to collect, calculate, store, display and distribute these data in a timely fashion. Networked solutions-oriented applications have allowed a shift from the "broadcast" to "access" mode of information delivery: the right information, where you need it, when you need it.
To reduce costs by improving drilling time, an operator drilling through complex shale and sand formations in a remote Colombian field, where the oil-water contact can reach to within 10 feet (3 meters) true vertical depth (TVD) below the top of sand, required accurate
real-time information to navigate to the target zone.
