KCA to Expand Use of Drilling Reporting System

KCA Deutag has extended the implementation of Well Data Technologies' daily drilling reporting solution, WellInform. The system has been rolled out across a further nine countries, spanning three continents, bringing the current total of countries where KCA uses WellInform to 18.

The accompanying map shows all the countries where WellInform web-based reporting is now in place within KCA Deutag.

Additional countries in line for implementation within the coming months include Sakhalin Island, Libya and Saudi Arabia. WellInform has evolved considerably since its introduction in 2004, with more and more countries and different types of operations now using the system.

Much credit for the success of the system is due to the diligence of the rig teams populating the system and also the support teams working hard to ensure worldwide implementation was possible.

"This extension is excellent news and is a mark of how well KCA Deutag and Well Data Technologies have been working together," said Eddy Jacobsen, Technical Director of Well Data Technologies.

With KCA Deutag operations continuing to expand, the system can now be classified as a global performance tool. With the ability to report, analyze and measure globally the system is a key contributing element to KCA Deutag operations.

Well Data Technologies, based in Houston and Aberdeen, develops technical solutions for the oil and gas industry. The company's products deliver performance-improving results from planning through execution of wells, providing the "real picture" of performance with both quantitative and qualitative data covering the most effective cost tracking solution in the industry, risks, drilling data and knowledge management.

WellInform is a comprehensive daily reporting system for the drilling industry. The system is in use around the globe and features web- and client-based software for remote wellsites.

KCA Deutag, a wholly owned subsidiary of Abbot Group plc, is the largest offshore platform drilling contractor in the North Sea, one of the largest international land drilling contractors outside the Americas, and a world leader in engineering, rig design, construction and operation.
