Easternwell shares expertise at national conference

Together with Broadspectrum, Easternwell presented at the 2018 APPEA Conference in Adelaide, the largest annual upstream oil and gas event in the southern hemisphere, attracting delegates from across the country and around the world.

Invited by APPEA to speak at the event, Easternwell’s Executive General Manager, Tim Phelan presented on how the company is developing new rig technologies to improve safety and productivity performance and using intelligent data analytics to deliver better outcomes for clients.

It was an opportunity to introduce the industry audience to Easternwell’s newest workover rig technology, the ALRx, which has been developed with integrated push-pull capability, a top drive, pipe handler and integrated mud-mixing capabilities for enhanced operational capability.

Further to improved rig technology, the presentation highlighted how further cost efficiencies can be achieved by collecting real-time operational data and using intelligent analytics to improve logistics management (rig and vehicle movements, workforce planning, supply chain) and asset utilisation (electronic tour reporting, engineering and maintenance, camp capacities) to reduce costs and improve services.

It is through a deliberate investment in innovative rig technology and by leveraging operational data, the resources industry will benefit from improved safety and productivity performance.

Following the presentation, Tim joined a panel with other presenters from Xodus Group, Origin Energy and Energistics to further discuss the importance of data analytics in engineering and answer questions from the audience.

The Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (APPEA) is the peak national body representing Australia’s oil and gas exploration and production industry.
