As the head of products here at Drillinginfo, my job is to look forward and ensure we have the products available that will help our customers make better oil and gas decisions, faster. There are a couple of things that will be in customers hands within the next day or two.
In the next few weeks, we will release frac information in North Dakota. Since 2007, about 2,000 wells were drilled and completed using hydraulic fracturing techniques in the state. The bulk of the wells were drilled in the Bakken and some even include detailed frac stage data. Combine this information with our production data and there is a new opportunity to learn things about the Bakken that never existed before.
If you are active in North Dakota, you may have also noticed we have been adding completion information to some of the wells. This work was first released in July, 2012 and is an ongoing project. I am particularly excited about this effort because our ultimate goal is to do all the wells in North Dakota.
This week we are releasing 3 more states as part of our ongoing lease project. California, Montana and Kansas will be available, and I understand Michigan is coming soon.
Although it has not been officially announced, Drillinginfo released its first mobile application called DI WellSpot for both Apple iOS and Android. As a reader of this blog, you can be the first one in your office to amaze your cube-mates by identifying the wells around your building using your phone. No wells around your building? Not a problem, just pan the map to find them anywhere throughout the country.
Lastly, our 3rd annual World Members Meeting is October 24-26 at the Hilton in downtown Austin, Texas. Previously, many have remarked it’s the best conference they’ve ever attended. This is my first time presenting, so I am going to do everything in my power not to damage that reputation. But seriously, I am really looking forward to presenting about our future products. And, I’m especially looking forward to meeting all of you. So, please stop by, introduce yourself and tell me about the things you would like to see from Drillinginfo down the road.
What do you think? Have you downloaded DI Wellspot yet? Do you plan to attend the World Members Meeting? Leave a comment below.
