Ocyan, one of the largest drilling contractors in Brazil with an offshore fleet in service for major operators in the area, has selected Kongsberg Digital’s SiteCom software to supply real-time drilling data from their rigs.
Ocyan’s rigs will be using Kongsberg Digital’s SiteCom solution to collect and convert data from different data sources making standard data available for Ocyan's main data platform Ocyan SMART. Besides the drilling control system, rigs are configured to receive marine data, data from dynamic positioning systems, ocean current meter systems and will be integrated with third parties for calculating drilling riser fatigue.
Kristian Hernes, SVP Digital Wells, Kongsberg Digital, commented, “As an operator, having access to complete, standard data in one system is a prerequisite to digitalise and automate processes in scale. Ocyan’s requirements for real-time data shows the robustness and versatility of SiteCom as a data collection software for the industry.”
The benefits of the SiteCom solution include safer and more efficient drilling due to a clear “bigger picture” of activities from data monitoring; accurate positioning provided by real-time information used in conjunction with historical and plan data; reduced risk of stuck pipe from the monitoring of casing runs; and confirmed cementing with the quality of cement placement monitored by integrated well-site data.
Rodrigo Chamusca Machado, Technology and Innovation Manager, Ocyan, added, “SiteCom is helping Ocyan to have a reliable and robust system onboard, connected to multiple sources and different protocols, converting data to WITSML standards in order to meet our client’s requirements.”
