“The collecting of GPS information on active rigs in the U.S. has filled a critical information gap that E&P professionals need to gain a better analytical understanding of the oil patch. DI Rigs provides the industry with a sought-after, independent cross-check of location data,” said Allen Gilmer, CEO, Drilling Info. “DI Rigs also provides a preview to some of the functionality coming with our next-generation platform, which will roll out throughout 2013.”

“With so much analytical data available today, the evolution of the Drillinginfo database will make it possible to present the information to our members and leverage it to fuel our analytics team’s ground-breaking efforts to explain and predict production. DI Rigs is addressing these issues in an innovative and incredibly disruptive way,” continued Gilmer.

Current Drilling Info subscribers will have access to additional components of DI Rigs based upon their subscription level. All subscription levels will have access to this first release of DI Rigs.

“I want to commend the team here at Drilling Info who made this complex offering a reality, particularly Richard Grant, vice president, Energy Services Group, Drilling Info, who led the project and championed it throughout the organization,” said Gilmer.
