Visualizing the RRC Data in the Cloud

Part 1: Well Locations

Last week I wrote a blog post talking about the TX RRC publishing data to the public that previously was only available via a paid subscription.

After downloading the different data sets and examining the various types of data and formats, I decided to take a closer look at the data that might prove to be useful to us and to our Productioneer clients.

It is not uncommon for location and depth data, as well as other well-header and meta data to be incomplete or non-existent during a software migration, after all this data might not be considered crucial for the daily gauge sheets. Especially in the case of Excel gauge sheets, where additional columns are a waste of “prime real estate” and might be considered as cluttering that particular production report.

It would be nice if we have a quick way to pull the Lat Long data in bulk to speed up the on-boarding process.

Productioneer Report Portal General Release

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.

Productioneer REDD

One of Mi4’s main products, Productioneer REDD (Remote Data Delivery), just celebrated its 4th birthday this Spring. Its goal is to enable data entry when there is a bad  Internet connection, or no connection at all.

The data being entered gets queued in a local database on the users’ computers until they find a spot with a good connection from which they can upload it to the Productioneer servers. We designed REDD’s interface to look very similar to that of the main Productioneer software product because it’s what the pumpers are used to working with.

In order to work well offline, REDD must also download and store all the latest Productioneer data (currently the latest 31 days), so that it can read it and of course update it. It does so with its “full synchronization” feature. Every morning, a pumper finds a spot with a reliable Internet connection and runs this synchronization before heading to the field. Any data that may have been entered already gets uploaded first, and then the downloads begin.

When a connection is available and the user still wants to upload data using REDD, they have two options: have it sent automatically like in Productioneer, or queue it in the local database and then choose to upload it later – as if REDD was actually offline. The latter option comes in handy when the pumper wants to review the data before sending it, or if they have an Internet connection that goes on and off unpredictably.

Pumpers across many different organizations have given REDD good reviews. When we started developing REDD 4 years ago we were surprised how many oil fields had little to no Internet connection and 4 years later that is still the case. We implemented a lot of the online/offline logic that we developed for REDD when we rolled out our initial iOS app a year later in 2015.  It would sure be easier for everyone if every oil field had a good Internet connection, but until that day comes we will continue updating and adding new features to REDD.

Happy Birthday REDD!

Track your downtime

Want a better way to document and report on your downtime? Check out Productioneer’s new downtime codes! Productioneer comes with a list of 26 downtime codes but our customers can make any customizations and additions that fit their operations.

Uptime/Downtime is a KPI that is relevant from the field to the boardroom. These discrete codes and the analytics expertise of Mi4 team make Productionner a great platform for tacking your performance.

New Feature: DIY CHARTS – now in Beta

Hey DIYers: you asked and we listened, Productioneer now has a new tab for you to create your own charts. We know you love our built-in charts but you still would like to be able to create your own, we get it!

On a more serious note: any data series usually available in a canned Productioneer report or chart or dashboard will be available for plotting on your DIY Charts. The new charts templates you create can be saved, annotated, shared, cloned, printed, pickled, etc.

We know you don’t read the manual so we didn’t make one for this feature.

The video below is a quick demo, try it out or let us know if you would like more hands on training.

 

 

As usual, we appreciate your feedback so we can make it better!

Warning: Any eye damage caused by improper use of neon green or fuchsia in your DIY charts is not our fault!!!
