The Remote Operations Services group is launching a Drilling Performance Analysis service that will evaluate real-time drilling data and make comparisons to offset legacy data used to develop technical limits and KPIs. Exceptions noted within the data are used to identify lost time and drilling performance improvement opportunities. Analysts must have a strong drilling background (SLS, Directional or LWD preferred), and must be capable of interpreting the real-time data and effectively communicating these findings to internal and external customers.
