In a perfect world, your machine-generated chart recorder would always work right. Pens would never get stuck or skip; the red and blue pens would always be in the right place, giving the right readings for static and differential; and moisture would never be a factor (I’m looking at you, Louisiana swamps!).Read More
I had an interesting conversation with my young son the other day—about how phones used to be.
Remember? Wired to the wall. Trapped by that wire.
The huge advance with the invention of the cordless phone that would let you roam all the way to the perimeter of your home or office—and permanently lose the handset under a couch cushion!Read More
I heard a story about a scrappy kid who tried to sneak into a crawfish festival in Louisiana several years ago. He loved him some boiled crawfish but he was flat broke.Read More

Have you seen the dashboards on today’s cars? The information they give you is amazing—you can almost get where you’re going by watching the dashboard alone.Read More
Our customers had told us they’d like to have someone who is familiar with all aspects of their account. That would speed the process of getting answers and follow-up because that person would already know them and their history. We liked the idea too, so we put it in place.Read More
One of my favorite parts of the Zedi Go mobile app is the feedback button.
You might think, “But Doug, that doesn’t help as much as the fact that I can look at charts on my phone or tablet, then prioritize my work by the scale and location of problems. Or that I can change settings, upload readings directly to the server—and be more efficient in so many ways!”Read More

For me personally, I love looking at all the ways wellsite automation can improve the bottom line and generally make life simpler. The possibilities are exciting!
You might call me a geek—and I can’t argue that.Read More
