Don’t let shift changes become a black hole for your drilling data

Shift Support in OpenGround can be an invaluable tool in ensuring shift changes happen more smoothly and productively, says Product Manager Marie-Claude Dubé. It makes life easier for the teams on the rig, while also giving owner operators fine-detail insight into what’s been achieved on each shift. However well organised your drilling may be, there is always one crack that your productivity could slip through: the shift change. That moment when crews swap over is a potential weak link in the chain of data that drives and empowers your project.

The Evolution of Geotechnical Information Management

All earth scientists know the geological time scale. From the Archean era of the Earth’s formation billions of years ago, through the Paleozoic and Mesozoic eras of shifting land formations and bizarre primitive creatures, to the relatively recent Holocene epoch we live in now, the geological time scale helps to describe the timing and relationships between geological events throughout our planet’s history.

Atkins Establishes a Detailed Geographic Information System Using OpenGround

Atkins is a multinational engineering, design, planning, project management, and consulting services company headquartered in London, UK. Part of the SNC-Lavalin Group, Atkins is one of the world’s most respected design, engineering, and project management consultancies. Atkins is renowned for the breadth and depth of its services ranging from civil and construction to aerospace. For many of its projects, Atkins’ geotechnical team uses multiple technologies and applications that need to work together. On these projects, Atkins also needs to provide timely, detailed, and engaging analysis and deliverables to its clients. Therefore, geotechnical technology and data integration, as well as proper project workflows, are of utmost importance to achieve efficiency and quality of service.

How Geotechnical Engineering Limited Streamlined Site Investigation with OpenGround

How a cloud ecosystem increased collaboration and accelerated delivery of high-quality data and logs to clients England-based Geotechnical Engineering Limited has provided ground-investigation services since 1961. The civil engineering company delivers a comprehensive range of site investigation services to a broad variety of markets, including transportation, construction, renewable energy, utilities, and the environmental sector. The organization continuously invests in research and development, effectively differentiating themselves from their competition while striving to offer clients the best possible services and products. Geotechnical Engineering Limited has relied on Bentley Systems’ gINT® software for more than 20 years. The solution was instrumental in producing borehole logs and AGS data. However, they realized that the desktop approach had limitations when it came to efficient collaboration between the team and the client.   Read the case study to see how Geotechnical Engineering Limited achieved the following results by moving from gINT to OpenGround: Over an hour saved each day and reduced errors in data collection Faster delivery of data and logs Improved relationships with clients Increased ability to make data-informed decisions
