Recording process information in oilfield operations can be extremely difficult. Furthermore, documenting everything on paper and storing it in files has become unworkable and unnecessary. While these tasks were traditionally done on paper, the scale and complexity of operations today make it almost impossible. Instead, firms are moving to automate process control documentation. This shift helps to reduces cost, increase efficiency, and improves organization and retrieval.
Documenting customer and regulatory mandated process information is one of the more tedious components of oilfield operations. Managers want to focus on increasing efficiency and productivity. They want to produce more volume for the same amount of labor and energy input. In contrast, process control documentation is mostly focused on recording past actions and complying with regulation. For that reason, automating the documentation process continues to grow in popularity.
A main benefit of an automated software system is the ability to record process information as it occurs. Software will allow users to record the inputs, the timing of each chemical additive, the drilling schedule, the pumping schedule, heating, cooling, water injection and many more processes.
Managers and compliance professionals can examine these results in the event of an incident or other non-conformity. Records and related information is saved in the cloud automatically, so there is no need to worry about papers or hardware being destroyed or misplaced. Instead, the data is safely stored in redundant server locations.
