Date and time values have been the bane of programmers’ existence since Pandora opened a box several millennia back……at least it feels that long. I wanted to share with you how we implemented flexible date parameters for an Azure Data Factory pipeline in a recent project.
We recently put together a video highlighting the features of Productioneer’s Daily Production BI Report. We are proud to include this BI Report as a standard offering in every Productioneer subscription. Our Productioneer customers can access it using the Productioneer Report Portal.
One aspect of the report that the video does not directly touch on is the BI Report was crafted with performance in mind. We tuned the data model and report design to offer a responsive user experience. Here are a few of the best practices and strategies we used to optimize the report:
Using stock visualizations instead of custom visuals
Reducing the number of slicers on the canvas and utilizing the Filter Pane
Specifying interactions across all visuals to avoid unnecessary background calculations
The report works out-of-the-box for all Productioneer customers and has many advantages over standard paginated reports.
As mentioned in the video, the report can work with other Oil and Gas Production software as well. If you are interested in utilizing this report or other BI Reports in your organization, we would be excited to talk with you.
Productioneer has an extensive paginated report library for our customers to utilize. We have everything from simple data exports to paginated reports that highlight variances and trends.
One of the reports we have had in our library for quite a while, is the Tank Stock report. The user selects a day and the report returns the tank stock and tank production for each tank in the organization for the selected day. It aggregates the stock and production at the tank, battery, field, and organization level and provides the tank strappings (feet and inches) for each tank. It is a standard and widely used report and I know it has not had any significant changes requested to it for at least 3 years.

Mi4 has helped many of our clients integrate data from data subscription services into their own projects and data initiatives. One of the many subscription services we have implemented solutions around is Enverus Drillinginfo’s Direct Access API. The Direct Access API allows Enverus customers with DI Plus subscriptions to access Enverus’ extensive collection of public data and bring it in-house.
TL/DR: Check out our C# Classes and SQL scripts for the Enverus Drillinginfo Direct Access API on our GitHub.
As we wrote about earlier this month, the Texas Railroad Commission (RRC) released a treasure trove of data freely available to the public on their site. It was like Christmas in the Mi4 office. After we sang some carols and drank some hot chocolate, we realized that there was so much data. We didn’t know where to start.
Christmas in September
As my colleague @Talal wrote last week, we decided to get Lat/Long coordinates for every Texas well. In his post, he explained, there are many use cases for this data, so it seemed like an excellent place to start.
Is Your Oilfield Management Platform Doing These 6 Things?
“Digitization is the new lubricant for the future of the oil and gas industry’s upstream sector.” –Strategy& report by PwC
In order to keep a competitive advantage in a cutthroat marketplace, world-class oil and gas operations are tapping into the latest technologies. Augmented reality (AR), machine learning, automation, and robotics are all part of ‘what’s next’ in oil and gas exploration, but the greatest investments in transformative technologies are taking shape around software designed to make exploration more agile and data more accessible than ever before.

Welcome to the second post in our miniseries: “Are You Developing Power BI Reports the Right Way?” In the two-part series we are designing a sample Power BI report visualizing the weather on Mars and using some real world techniques.
Mi4 is excited to announce the public release of the Productioneer Report Portal to all of our Productioneer customers. The Productioneer Report Portal allows Productioneer users to see their Productioneer reports directly in a web browser. To use the portal, users do not need to have Productioneer installed on their computers and can now view their reports on tablet or mobile devices.
Access to the Productioneer Report Portal is included with a Productioneer subscription and is available to all Productioneer customers at no additional cost. Since Productioneer is not priced by user, Productioneer customers can give any member of their organization or partners access to the portal at no additional fee.

Data is king, or queen depending on your household dynamics. How you communicate that data and its impact to your clients can help or hurt your business. Both your short and long term relationships can hang in the balance, which is why the quality and delivery of your Power BI reports are everything.
Case Study: Power BI Report Development
In this blog post mini-series, we will be taking you through the process of creating a Power BI report. The demo report draws from one we created for a client as part of a larger dashboard project. It implements a line chart to visualize the weather on Mars.
The actual report we developed had nothing to do with Mars, space, or weather, but you should find it useful to understand how real-life issues can be resolved and optimizations can be employed. The first post in the series focuses on data-prep and implementation of a legend slicer.
We launched our updated Mi4.com website this week! Developed in-house, we think it is a big improvement over our old site, but we’re biased. So don’t take our word for it, head over to Mi4.com and tell us what you think.
In my last post I mentioned that you would be seeing more of our new logo and that we had several releases planned in the near future. I was not pulling your leg. These are busy, exciting times at Mi4. Stay tuned.
