SMART4D connects to the rig using WITSML (wellsite information transfer standard markup language). This facilitates a flow of technical data from the downhole MWD/LWD tools directly into the software. Every 10 minutes, trajectory survey and trace data is updated within the software and is integrated into the property model. This automated process eliminates the need for manual data fetching and importing of LAS files into the model.
WITSML data integration ensures that the most recent data is being used for decision making. Correlation tools within the Horizontal Panel make use of this data, and result in the most up-to-date model adjustments.
SMART4D can connect to any rig worldwide using mainstream data aggregators:
- Pason Canada and USA
- Baker Hughes Welllink
