Next-generation system automatically delivers well data directly to the desktop
HOUSTON, TEXAS – March 23, 2010 – Baker Hughes (NYSE: BHI) has introduced WellLink™ Desktop, a dynamic, secure system for automatic delivery of well data from the wellsite to the desktop.
As well and project complexity increases, advanced wellsite monitoring and analysis of well data allows for better asset management business decisions. WellLink Desktop quickly and accurately delivers the well data operators need to optimize production. The system eliminates the need to search through large amounts of data and manually download files of interest. The application also provides security through an encrypted data transfer scheme and by locking the application to a specific client and computer.
WellLink Desktop creates a data-transfer routine that is installed on a client's computer to automate the data-transfer process via regular checks of the host Web service for new data files and to run a continuous audit of files already transferred. The program also enables clients to monitor progress of the automatic download, to pause and resume the download and to manage the download traffic.
"We are focusing on transforming our business operations to become more digitally enabled. The WellLink Desktop system is an important part of our remote operations infrastructure that streamlines well data delivery and maximizes its security," notes Derek Mathieson, Baker Hughes president of products and technology. "WellLink Desktop works automatically and securely behind the scenes to simplify data gathering and synthesis so that clients can focus on core business issues."
