Well Data Tracking from Wellsite to Corporate Database
David Ning Li*, Al Kok, Mazhar Siddiqui, and Shixin Wei
In an organization where a large corporate well database is populated and updated by different departments, shortening the time between data gathering and loading of the new data into the corporate database is a significant challenge. This study presents a strategy deployed to ensure that well data is loaded to the corporate database completely and in a timely manner. It involved deploying a highly automated tracking and notification system that tracked activities at the wellsite and data loading in the corporate database. Furthermore, the system was designed to automatically compare information gathered from the drilling activities with the data loaded to the corporate database and generate the automatic email notification and statistics. Data managers can view both the drilling status and the data loading status via a dash-board style web interface.
