Oilfield Service and Rentals Action Plan

BelcaSoft presents 2015 Oilfield Service and Rentals Action Plan.

2015 Canadian Winter Drilling Season is over. Drilling activity is 45% down from last year. For some of our clients sales are 70% down. Some oil companies cut drilling programs, others ask for significant discounts.

It’s not new for oilfield. We had that before. Experts say that this oil crisis is different from 1986, 1998, and 2008. Yes, it should be that way! Oil and Gas Industry develops in cycles. We have different industry structure, more advanced technology and experienced people now.

Many of our clients are facing significant issues as a result of the recent decline in commodity prices. We prepared the 2015 Oilfield Service and Rentals Action Plan which will be useful to your organization as you navigate the low price environment.

We stand for oilfield and believe that good times will come! Stay calm and have an Action Plan.

If you need any assistance with your Downturn Action plan feel free to conact us. Our approach will allow you to navigate the down-cycles and be better positioned for the up-cycles.

All questions on the Downturn Action Plan should be e-mailed to RigER Sales.

Spreadsheets for Oilfield Service and Rentals Tracking! Really?

Have you ever tried to control your shop inventory in a spreadsheet? How about rental days count?

It is not easy. In fact, it is almost impossible. The reason is obvious. Spreadsheets are static and not designed for dynamic tracking. They will never work as logistics, warehouse and rental software.

In spite of this, spreadsheets, e-mail and paper-based systems are currently widely used in oilfield service industry. Many small and medium size companies use them to track oilfield rentals. This has led to major problems as companies grow and more people need to access the spreadsheets that show rental units availability and locations, service periods, utilization and profitability. Multi-user mode in spreadsheets is another story.

We heard many stories of lost or forgotten equipment caused cash loss and put safety at risk.

The industry reports big chunk of time and resources being spent to retrieve information from spreadsheets. And the more company grows, the more complicated it becomes.

We once found 152 errors in one spreadsheet. The spreadsheet had been in use for a long time and the validity of the data had gradually decayed.

In general, many spelling errors and incorrect references resulted in the spreadsheet being considerable economic and operational risk.

The Wall Street Journal recently published even worse case – Spreadsheet Mistake Cost Tibco Shareholders $100 Million.

There are many good reasons for oilfield rental companies to consider software like RigER to replace spreadsheets.

3 Key Points of Preparation for Drilling Season [INFOGRAPHIC]

The Western Canadian oil and gas industry operates in annual and seasonal cycles. A consequence is the need for a large number of skilled labor force and related equipment to handle peak activity periods.

The cyclic nature of the industry creates significant challenges, such as low equipment utilization on an annualized basis, retention of a competent field work force, potential for increased accident and worker injuries.

The oilfield service and rental companies should prepare for new drilling season.

Here are three key points, which are the pillars to being a successful oilfield rental company:

  • Equipment – Rental Fleet;
  • People – Field Technicians;
  • Operations – Internal Business Processes.

Drilling_Season_Preparation_by_riger.ca

Rental Fleet

The oilfield rental units need regular inspection, maintenance, replacement, relocation, recovery and reconditioning of equipment, and it is better to do this before the busy season. More over new drilling season preparation is the best time to add new rental units or new type of equipment to the rental fleet. Usually oilfield rental companies have different options: purchase, lease, or finance new equipment.

 

Field Technicians

To be prepared for winter drilling season oilfield service and rental companies should start hiring in September. There are a lot of thing to do in this short period: find qualified candidates, interview them, select potential employees, negotiate, make job offer, hire.

Training, certification and staff development ensure that the workforce will continue to develop the skills necessary for successful drilling season (H2S Alive, Standard First Aid, WHMIS, TDG, PST / CSTS). Successful oilfield service and rental companies focus on effective internal communication, teamwork and strong corporate culture as well.

 

Processes

Oilfield equipment rental is a complicated asset management and job tracking process that includes preparation, dispatch, management, control, invoice, analysis. Oilfield rental operations business process should be tested and optimized for increasing activity.

Unfortunately, due to the onsite deployment of rental units, the management process generally relies on paper forms or standalone computer applications. Paper-based approach is unnecessarily complex, expensive and prone to errors. It also makes it difficult to track the assets and jobs over their lifecycle, identify performance issues, conduct preventive maintenance and manage assets across a customer account.

Implementation of operation management software, such as RigER, gives the rental company return on its investment while providing both attractive costs and reliability to customers.
