Seeq expands support for oil and gas industry

Seeq Corporation has announced the availability of Seeq connectors to CygNet enterprise SCADA and WITSML data storage systems. Seeq’s applications for analysing process manufacturing data include Workbench for easy-to-use advanced analytics, Organizer for publishing insights in reports and dashboards, and Data Lab for accessing Python libraries. Seeq applications are designed to empower engineers and subject matter experts to rapidly investigate, collaborate and share insights to improve operations and business outcomes.

According to CygNet, its SCADA platform is designed specifically for the oil and gas industry, provides a quick launch that collapses deployment time, saves millions of dollars in implementation costs and reduces IT project risk. Customers using Seeq together with CygNet are said to be able to achieve faster insights with predictive, diagnostic and descriptive analytics.

Wellsite Information Transfer Markup Language (WITSML) is an industry initiative to provide open, non-proprietary standard interfaces for data transmission from rig sites to the offices of operators, oilfield service companies and integrators. It is also used to share information among partners, vendors and government agencies.

“Seeq connectivity to these oil and gas industry data sources will help companies tap advanced analytics for data-based decision-making at a critical time in the industry,” said Will Knight, Global Lead for Seeq Partner Programs. “The need for innovation is tremendous, so we appreciate the efforts of our system integrator partners, such as TIGA, to assist customers in unlocking the value in their data.”

TIGA, based in Houston, Texas, is a system integrator with a deep understanding of the specific challenges of oil and gas customers seeking insights in untapped silos of data. “We help our clients use CygNet and Seeq to capitalise on their data to drive innovation, transformation and cost savings in their organisations,” said John Miller, President of TIGA. “Furthermore, the WITSML connector will enable access to the operational data landscape, driving value and savings for our clients.”

The opportunity for operators using Seeq with WITSML systems is extending the value initially gained from initiatives to aggregate and visualise well data. Seeq support for WITSML empowers end users by overcoming the lack of time and tools for engineers to complete more advanced investigation and analytics initiatives. Process engineers and subject matter experts will now be able to analyse current and past drilling, completions and well intervention campaigns, for example to perform root cause analysis on equipment failure and optimise performance.

All of the browser-based Seeq applications connect to a shared Seeq server to enable collaboration, access connected data sources and enable administrative control. For example, graphics created in Data Lab may be viewed in Organizer Topics, data modelled in Workbench may be accessed by Data Lab users and Data Lab algorithm results are available for use in the other Seeq applications.

“Seeq continues to release compelling analytics solutions for customers in process manufacturing and Industry 4.0 engagements,” commented Janice Abel, Principal Analyst at ARC Advisory Group. “The need for the faster and better insights provided by Seeq is a consistent requirement for customers investing in IIoT and smart manufacturing.”
