Talk Description
This talk will focus on how an operator can gather different real-time data types together using the WITSML data standard and making it available to engineering applications both at the wellsite and at the office.

There has been a recent rapid increase in the capture and transmission of real-time data and most operators now require an integrated service that includes the provision of internal or externally hosted real-time operations centres (RTOC).

Historically real-time data has been managed by individual data acquisition service companies who have provided access to real-time plots through their own RTOCs. Typically these might include drilling parameters, mud rheology, mudlogging and measurement-while-drilling parameters, all of which might be transferred in real-time data through separate bespoke systems over a common satellite or other low bandwidth satellite communications link.

On occasions an operator may also request one of the service companies to act as 'aggregators' of other real-time data, which can cause problems as those other companies are usually competitors and there is then an inherent conflict of interest. In addition there are networking issues as the different service companies and the operator wish to separate their networks for security purposes.

This talk explains how it is possible for an independent company to gather together all of the data sources together, eliminating these concerns.

By using the WITSML Standards and providing full Client/Server capability in specially designed data acquisition (DAQ) systems at the wellsite the potential for a 'Digital Rig' can finally be realised.
