Using Open Source to avoid lock-in to expensive proprietary technologies

I’ve been using Apple products since 2007. Every smart phone I’ve had has been an iPhone but yesterday I ordered a new Android phone. I’m so fed up with shelling out around £1000 every couple of years but I’ve been trapped because all my music is in iTunes, all my family have iPhones and we run Macs*. Man, I hate being locked in! I wouldn’t mind if it was still value for money, but it’s not – I feel like I’m being taken for a ride now.

Single intuitive dashboard designed to display key operational risk data

Challenge

Operators employ a multitude of functional systems to keep track of key operational data. This often necessitates switching between windows, which is time-consuming and error-prone, impacting deadlines and quality.

Solution

Eigen Ingenuity can be configured to display a list of entries related to each stakeholder, with a summary of information and links to the exact record in the source functional system. The “My Important Stuff” page was configured to show records from systems relating to risk management, work orders, purchase orders and requisitions.

Impact

Now each Stakeholder can access all key information from one dashboard, keeping the risk management workflow running efficiently. In addition, the stress on users of not being up to date or becoming distracted is drastically reduced.

Automated generation of a weekly plant availability report

Challenge

Creating the weekly plant availability report involved a series repetitive tasks, including extracting real-time production data, adding downtime data and potential, calculating production and plan efficiencies, as well as on-demand and on-stream availabilities, and pasting values and charts into a single report to be emailed to management.

Solution

Using Ingenuity’s digital reporting capability, a template for the weekly availability report was configured to the user’s specification with clean and informative trend lined and bar charts. Today, once per week all an engineer needs to do is enter production deferment figures and the report is generated automatically and emailed with one click.

Impact

The engineer has gained back three hours every week to use the reliability information to analyse improvement opportunities, conduct problem resolution. In addition, the engineer feels more engaged, motivated and valued.

Drilling Portal dramatically improves team efficiency

Challenge

Information on the drilling activities for each rig on hire is held in multiple systems, shared during meetings and via emailed PDFs and spreadsheets. Inbox clutter had become overwhelmingly, with up to 18 different reports emailed per day.

Solution

The Eigen Drilling Portal is a cloud-based web portal that aggregates and displays the latest status information from more than ten different information systems, including Non-Productive Time, time-depth curves, well status.

Impact

Today, the time taken for an engineer to understand the current status on each rig – and performance against plan – has been reduced to about one minute. In addition, teams have fed back increased motivation, as well as a greater sense of collaboration and one-team behaviour.
