Drilling Operations Reporting (DOR) has just become much easier
With the way drilling operations work, activity can be captured in different ways: the type of drilling or work completed, consultation time, time per metre, products or equipment used, and so on.
Daily Drilling Operations Reports (DORs) are the blueprint for tracking and invoicing drilling work.
The DORs are often processed manually with a time lag of up to 14 days due to travel to and from the site. So keeping track of everything can soon get… messy.
If, for instance, six rigs were sent to site for two weeks, about 84 DORs are manually completed, requiring input and invoicing once received at headquarters.
At approximately 15 minutes per report, three business days and close to $2000 in additional labour is needed to input DOR data from a single hitch.
A better way
But capturing daily activity and reporting for exploration drilling needn’t be so time-intensive or complicated.
Now you can stop relying on manual processes or costly outdated applications. Or the memory of on-site teams having to recall job details from days or weeks prior.
The most cost-effective and easy-to-use solution for accurate onsite data capture for exploration drillers is here.
4P DOR (Drilling Operations Report) is the missing link to the smoothest daily activity data capture and reporting you and your team has experienced.
A digital solution able to capture information input off-line and uploads automatically when internet connectivity is available.
What is 4P DOR?
4P DOR is a revolutionary, cost-effective data capture and reporting software to save time and money when reporting from rigs.
It was developed and refined over six months (with input from an actual on-site drilling operation) especially for the exploration drilling industry.
It Instantly captures complex on-site drilling activity for better efficiency.
Unlike other out-of-the-box solutions, it is ready to use with In-built fields, codes and information for on-site supervisors and field teams. It has customisable forms which save you and your team time capturing information for pre-starts, maintenance, tool box meetings and inspections.
This web-based application allows any number of concurrent users to conveniently record and share information.
The Challenges Of Data Capture
The Exploration drilling industry is subject to many unique challenges, including:
Limited or no internet connectivity on-site
Level of computer literacy of some on-site workers
Multiple ways in which the drilling work is billed (type or depth of drilling work, the time taken, products used, equipment involved, etc.)
Addressing the challenges
4P DOR allows for off-line data input, and uploads automatically when internet connection is available.
It allows for a shift from manual to digital reporting processes. With easy, intuitive interface for mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets it can be used out in the field. The customisable forms enable workers to fill out familiar-looking forms, only digitally rather than on paper.
Minimal training required with easy-to-follow training videos and training support is available. 4P DOR intuitively replicates the current manual processes to maximise the existing skill set of the workforce, limiting the need to intensively re-skill and train staff.
Pre-programmed codes make tracking the type of drilling work simpler and faster.
It is intuitive, easy to use and integrates with existing systems and programs, e.g. preparing data into easy to use Excel spreadsheets. It works with your existing financial systems such as MYOB, Xero and others for cost-effective convenience.
It enables fast, accurate drilling reports to clients and head office without costly human error and delays, improving communication and customer satisfaction.
What it means for your business
4P DOR enables quicker billing of the client, leading to better cash flow for your business.
It decreases time-intensive data input by admin teams, which can sometimes take days. The software automatically produces correctly formatted, industry-specific reports with just a click.
Your clients are much better served with improved delivery time and accurate, reliable reporting.
Historical data capture enables precise planning for optimal staffing, competitive quoting and profitability.
