Teamwork to assess and reduce risk

Posted by Grand Lau on Apr 4, 2018 12:20:00 PM

What kind of risk taker were you as a kid? Were you the one who built a rickety ramp out of plywood, braced it up with some loose bricks you found in the yard and wheeled your bike bravely up to the top?

Hey, everybody, watch this!

At the top, you’re surveying the scene and doing a sort of primitive risk management—am I gonna have an exhilarating ride down this ramp, then shoot up toward the stars? Or will I fall off halfway down and smash every bone in my body?

Quickly remedy wellsite production problems

Posted by Ed Moore on Mar 5, 2018 11:45:00 AM

“Dear Producer,” the email should read. “I want to tell you about a problem I have on well number 10. It’s—well, it’s just not producing like it should. I think there may be a liquid loading problem. In truth, this has been building up for a while, and I was afraid something like this would happen. What should we do?”

I don’t know if you ever read advice columns, where people write in and ask for help with relationship issues. Sometimes it’s interesting to see what the columnist has to offer as a solution.

Emerson's Zedi Roughneck helps you track stuff

Posted by Grand Lau on Jan 11, 2018 2:30:00 PM

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.

The idea, of course, is to consolidate information you need in order to stay safe; what’s behind you, beside you and in front of you and when they get too close.

I think Zedi’s Roughneck software is a lot like that. It tells you the location of equipment like compressors, pumpjacks and other onsite equipment, along with pipeline inventory, preventative maintenance programs and more, so that’s what’s around you. It also lets you track moves of that equipment so your information stays current.

Zedi is about to Go even further to serve you better

Posted by Doug Watt on Dec 11, 2017 10:15:00 AM

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!”

Posted by Doug Watt on Mar 3, 2017 11:25:03 AM

The cost of unplanned maintenance activities such as replacing or repairing failed equipment is high; lost production, expensive labor (call outs, overtime) and damaged equipment adds up.
