Ocyan Taps RigNet for Drilling Analytics

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Houston-based networking solutions provider RigNet announced on Tuesday that Brazil’s Ocyan has signed a multi-year agreement and selected Intelie Live, RigNet’s machine learning-based analytics platform, to be used at its Drilling and Marine Operational Support Center (CSD).  Ocyan’s system will use Intelie as an integrated monitoring system for the company's entire fleet of drilling rigs.

"With this system we are able to collect, monitor and process thousands of data points from multiple sources that will give us predictive insights to avoid operational issues, including preventing incidents and accidents while reducing maintenance costs, helping us save significant costs and ultimately improving performance," said Weverton Nazario, Performance Director. "The Intelie Live platform has helped us achieve our goal to have access to all available data in a fully integrated way. This helps us to respond quickly and have solutions ready for the day-to-day challenges we may face. We feel that innovations in artificial intelligence will benefit the oil and gas industry.”

With the implementation of the solution, CSD can monitor multiple systems including maintenance, security, drilling / managed pressure drilling (MPD), well control and integrity, blowout preventer (BOP), power management system (PMS) and dynamic positioning (DP).

“This integrated monitoring system combined with efficient big data analytics, machine learning and IoT solutions will also allow CBM implementation to increase critical equipment life cycle, development of a real-time Bow Tie to monitor the conditions of the mitigation barriers to prevent major accident hazards among other innovative solutions," said Rodrigo Chamusca, responsible for CSD and Digital Transformation at Ocyan Drilling Business Unit.

Lelio Souza, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Intelie and Vice President of RigNet, said, “Intelie Live, our industry-leading machine learning analytics platform, expands real-time intelligence even further across the energy value chain, providing significant benefits. Working with customers like Ocyan allows us to continuously innovate, improve and expand the capabilities of Live. We’re also excited about developing Bow Tie, Intelie’s application to support Safety Barrier Management during drilling operations, for deployment with Ocyan.”
