WELL WORK CASE STUDY: PRIMEXX
Primexx needed to track increasingly complex drilling operations, manage AFEs, track field costs, and distribute professional drilling reports to its partners.
Inspiration for Change
INCREASING DRILLING ACTIVITY
Primexx maintains three active rigs in the Permian Basin, which are primarily engaged in horizontal drilling at depths up to 21,000 feet. The E&P wanted to optimize rig utilization and improve the way it managed drilling and completion projects.
AFE AND FIELD COSTS
With its sustained drilling activity, Primexx needed to expedite the partner AFE process, compare ongoing field expenses to budgets, and track recurring costs from rentals and consumables.
DAILY DRILLING REPORTS
Primexx staff spent hours each day collating data, formatting reports, and distributing to partners. The company wanted a faster method for preparing professional drilling reports.
DISPRATE E&P SYSTEMS
Drilling and production operations teams used separate software tools, which created barriers to data and productivity. A unified solution was needed to track production and well work, such as workovers and repairs.
