IDS said on Wednesday that, following successful six-month operational trials on Stena Spey and Stena Carron rigs, it will deploy its data-driven TourNet Pro drilling contractor reporting service and drilling performance monitoring service, Anova DPM, across Stena Drilling’s fleet in 1Q 2021.

According to the company, the integrated solution will deliver automated near-real-time rig and fleet-wide performance benchmarks, KPIs and core analytics in one platform – offering Stena Drilling productivity optimisation and significant OPEX and time savings versus manual aggregation.

Douwe Franssens, IDS General Manager comments: “In today’s operating climate, there has never been more data available. But turning that data into insight and using it to improve operations can be difficult.

“Now more than ever, operators and drilling contractors need to ensure safe, optimal performance. We’re proud to partner with Stena Drilling on this world-first – they saw the benefit of how TourNet Pro and Anova DPM could streamline data management to improve drilling campaign performance”.

Colin Dawson, Digitalisation Transformation Manager at Stena Drilling said: “The morning report is something that has changed very little over the last ten years. The IDS TourNet Pro/DPM integration allows us to change the focus of the morning report. We believe we can not only automate 35 per cent of the report from existing sources but also make our data available to our clients to aid in the automation of their reporting”.

According to IDS, with the introduction of TourNet Pro, the company pioneered the move to automated reporting in the oil and gas industry, utilising a range of data tools and inputs to replace much of the manual data entry requirement.

The deployment will be part of Stena Drilling’s ‘evolve’ digital & business transformation programme.
