Addax to Use IDS Drilling Reporting Services

July 13, 2009 at 10:23 pm Leave a comment

IDS, provider of Web-based daily reporting services, has signed a new contract to provide drilling reporting services for Addax Petroleum. IDS was invited to participate in a selection process to find a global solution for drilling reporting systems for the international E&P company. Addax Petroleum selected IDS DrillNet as the most flexible and cost-effective solution to the challenge of its remote drilling locations.

Saskia Schils, Performance/QAQC Drilling Engineer at Addax Petroleum, said: “The one-on-one training offered by IDS across the Internet is a huge positive for us as a global operation in often isolated sites. Having a 24×7 support team included in the daily charge was also very important in ensuring the service is cost-effective.”

The Corporate Drilling Department at Addax Petroleum and the technical team at IDS worked together to ensure the custom-built system met all possible requirements. Being WITSML-enabled, DrillNet was able to meet systems integration needs. Addax Petroleum found the software easy to roll out and was particularly impressed by the ease of data input. IDS only charges for use, so the system is more commercially viable than a traditional license fee arrangement.

Beth Anderson, IDS Business Development Manager for the UK and Europe, said: “We have worked hard to ensure that DrillNet is fully tailored to meet both the practical and financial needs of Addax Petroleum. Our Web-based system fits perfectly with their business model as it allows access anytime, anywhere, requiring just a Web browser and log-in details; it also provides the security and peace of mind required.”
