Relied on by some of the most well-known players in the oil and gas industry, IDS DrillNet provides operators with an innovative reporting solution for capturing and analysing the full scope of their drilling operation.
For over 20 years, IDS has been refining the core capabilities in DrillNet so that the instantaneous generation of your daily drilling report and final well report provide only a fraction of the functionality available within the system. Professional and Enterprise level DrillNet solutions allow for extensive WITSML imports, the ability to capture data related to completions, workovers, and interventions; all while extracting operational knowledge through cost monitoring, lessons learned, and KPI visualisations.
IDS Lean Automated Reporting optimises the data flow from the point of acquisition to the delivery of analytics and knowledge extraction, removing, wherever possible, all manual data entry and processing. Our mission is to provide high quality software services backed up by 24/7 support from a dedicated, global team.
A relatively simple concept, ‘lean’ means maximising value while minimising waste – in short, more from less. The goal is to offer a perfect value creation process that has zero waste. In the context of Daily Reporting and data management this means:
In the oil & gas industry, operating costs are higher than in most other industries; hence IDS has introduced Lean Automated Reporting and has further developed their applications to reduce the need for end-user manual data entry. To achieve this, data bridges are utilised to work with other data sources, such as WITSML, DSIS and Landmark EDM®. With these integration points, IDS enhances workflows, enables a collaborative environment, and centralises operational knowledge.
To aid the prudent operator, regular management reports and executive summaries can be generated and dedicated portals made available to all operational partners for rapid knowledge distribution. The IDS philosophy of Turning Data Into Knowledge by means of our Anova analytics, allows accurate forecasting and benchmarking as well as drilling performance optimisation; all from one integrated web-enabled platform.
Anova Pro provides the end user with decision support where and when it is required, enabling you to analyse data on the go; whether on a PC, tablet or smartphone.
Typical uses include:
IDS provides service companies with web-delivered operational reporting solutions such as DrillNet, that are fully customisable to suit the specific requirements of each client.
With over twenty years of streamlining upstream data management processes, IDS applications encompass the full spectrum of capabilities necessary to capture, analyse, report, and share operational knowledge securely and efficiently.
TourNet Pro is an advanced operational reporting application providing both the IADC and general contractor reporting services coupled with instant fleet wide, regional, and individual rig performance analysis.
TourNet Pro is a rig-tailored application that allows captured data to be used continuously, while ensuring that data only needs to be entered once. This continuity enhances operations and IADC reporting as well as ensures that the drilling contractor can obtain up-to-date and, where required, up- to-the-minute information pertaining to their fleet. The results can be presented at the touch of a button via on-demand dashboards, as well as exported to any traditional business document format.
With almost two decades of providing web-based operational reporting capabilities, IDS has now released a DataNet solution that is completely tailored to the construction industry. For the first time ever, EPCM companies can capture, analyse, and report on any aspect of their operational performance. IDS DataNet paves the way for KPIs to be derived from your unique organisational environment rather than arbitrarily assigned. IDS allows for accurate monitoring of the daily, weekly, and monthly usage of plant, machinery, equipment, as well as human resources so you will always have transparency with regards to productivity and maintenance requirements. HSE lessons learned data is captured to ensure projects are being carried out safely and that mistakes are not repeated. Throughout this all, costs are captured at all levels of the operation in order to obtain an accurate view of the planned and actual progress and associated expenditures.
Capturing non-productive time reins true to be one of the most under-utilised but also the most valuable capabilities in providing opportunities to increase productivity in EPCM companies. The ability to analyse and monitor downtime of equipment and personnel provides you with the knowledge to increase efficiency and significantly reduce operating costs. Operational reporting is based on KPIs that are derived by your organisation rather than generically assigned. IDS DataNet captures hours on equipment, man-hours, and allows for complete tracking of milestones including the critical path views to focus on key indicators as well as the last planner approach to give a more detailed view at the task level.
IDS DataNet is fully configured with all its breakdown structure codes, rules of credit, location, and high-level project sites. DataNet allows for different disciplines of projects, (ie. offshore, onshore, marine) which then define the project behavior. IDS provides the capability of in-depth usage tracking on all plant, equipment and machinery. Performance data and breakdowns through serial number tracking allows for transparency in planned hours versus actual hours which is particularly beneficial in ensuring that rental companies are not over-charging. Apart from asset tracking, IDS also captures crew details such as time sheet data for payroll, as well as certificates, experience, languages, and visas for seamless allocation of human resources to projects.
In this presentation, Douwe Franssens, Director of IDS discusses operational reporting in the upstream industry and explains how IDS has taken those capabilities and evolved them to offer EPCM companies web-delivered operational reporting solutions to monitor their operational performance.

The cost tracking capability is designed around the concept that on a day-to-day well operation, service companies and operators know what services and equipment are being used and what the contractual costs are. Through the application of cost codes and quantities, this will then allow a day-to-day overview of the expenditure on an operation against a pre-determined AFE. IDS provides operations managers with a tool to monitor and analyse all costs. Data entry is intuitive; with automatic carry-forward options for recurring costs and the ability to select costs from the approved AFE or available cost codes.
Relied on by the some of the most reputable operators and service companies in the oil and gas industry, DrillNet provides users with a sophisticated web-based solution for capturing, tracking, analysing, and reporting on all drilling and completions activities. DrillNet covers the full scope of an operation right from the initial concept to final decommissioning. DrillNet is simple to implement and provides global access to unlimited users. With a built-in document manager and a fully searchable database, all current and historical operational information is available at the click of a button.
For over 20 years, IDS has been refining the core capabilities in DrillNet so that the instantaneous generation of daily drilling, completions, and final well reports provide only a fraction of the functionality available within the system. There are over 100 report templates available within DrillNet, including bit records, mud reports, and well schematics. Reports can be directly sent to a pre-configured list of recipients to maximise knowledge dissemination. Customised reports, graphical visualisations and dashboards can be built from any operational data set. These dashboards provide KPIs and information relative to time analysis, cost details and comparisons, as well as other benchmarking metrics that can be exported to Adobe®Acrobat®.PDF, Microsoft Excel®, and Microsoft Word.
GeoNet is a web-delivered, WITSML enabled reporting solution designed for the wellsite geologist to capture all operational information necessary to generate and distribute an electronic daily geology report. This application can be used as a stand-alone software service, or in conjunction with DrillNet to streamline operations and take full advantage of the timesaving data continuity that comes from the extensive integration with DrillNet and WITSML imports.
With a flexible and customisable application, the geology team has the ability to capture a wide scope of data related to geological aspects and can reference all operational information from a centralised database. Easily accessible at the rig site or in town, and with full integration of the drilling team data, GeoNet is the most collaborative and comprehensive application for geological data. Capturing a wide scope of Geological Data:
ProNet is a web-delivered completions and interventions reporting service featuring a fully-integrated drawing package and campaign life-cycle manager. ProNet combines our established operational reporting services with visualisation capabilities and our ‘campaign manager’ to give the completions engineer a full history of the well from spud to abandonment.
Fed directly from information captured throughout the life-cycle of your wellbore, ProNet provides a time-based borehole visualisation; giving the user an on-screen walk through of the entire well’s history. The diagram is fully interactive; by simply clicking on any component you access the relevant data set for review or in-place editing. Visuals are customisable and easily saved so that they can be included in your next presentation.
Collect information on all your activities including completions, workovers, stimulations, interventions, through to abandonment. As a dynamic system, operation types are defined to support the user with relevant information. Since ProNet is a centralised database you also have access to all historical, current, and planned information for that well, region, or block as required
Capturing daily operational information in the field directly into a centralised database provides a comprehensive view for the entire organisation. The availability of near real-time information allows team members to quickly share details on progress with those in the office or other locations. The benefit being that the completions engineer has all the current and historical well data organised and in one place.
TourNet Pro is a rig focused software solution specifically designed to meet the operational reporting requirements of drilling contractors. As a web-delivered collaborative application, TourNet Pro extracts operational intelligence, giving drilling contractors the unique benefit of understanding exactly how their rigs are performing. The system is fully scalable and provides strategic monitoring at the rig, region, and fleet wide levels.
TourNet Pro provides global access to data analysis and has extensive third party integrations including SAP, Workforce, and SharePoint. The IADC report is produced without any additional data entry, allows for digital sign-off, and can be automatically distributed to a preconfigured list of recipients. Detailed internal activity coding is mapped to generic IADC DDR Plus codes to streamline the data management process. All information can be presented based on established IADC tours.
TourNet facilitates a largely automated DDR Plus. With automated activities from rig state detection, and the above mapping of codes and data from other sources, the DDR Plus is largely automated saving significant time and actually providing accurate data in your IADC DDR Plus reports.
With TourNet Pro, drilling contractors can obtain crucial insight into their company’s operational performance through pre-configured dashboards and advanced benchmarking visualisations. These dashboards and visualisations encompass information relative to time analysis, cost details and comparisons, as well as other benchmarking metrics. As a powerful web-delivered application, TourNet Pro captures NPT to help ensure a prosperous future for drilling contractors. Operational knowledge can be exported to Adobe®Acrobat®.PDF, Microsoft Excel®, and Microsoft Word.
A relatively simple concept, ‘Lean’ means maximizing value while minimizing waste – in short, more from less. The ultimate goal is to offer a perfect value creation process that has zero waste.
Optimising the data flow from the point of acquisition to the delivery of analytics and knowledge extraction, removing where possible all manual data entry and processing. Now, with readily available real-time sensor data in WITSML and OPC-UA formats, IDS has taken the initiative by applying the principles of ‘Lean Automation’ to reporting services to deliver LAR - ‘Lean Automated Reporting’. LAR, replacing a time-consuming manual process with an automated, data-driven service.
This has been achieved by:
IDS has built in capabilities to import (and export) data from multiple WITSML objects and multiple sources. The diagram below shows that that the majority of the DDR can built from any reasonably comprehensive WITSML database (shown at right in the diagram below).
While automating the numeric subsets of the report from WITSML’ static’ objects is relatively straightforward, identifying and coding operational ‘activities’ presents a range of novel challenges. Using raw WITSML data and applying the RSD/OSD and FTR logic described above, it is now possible to automate the building of a significant majority of the DDR including the ‘Activities’ section. As noted above, the real time 1 Hz or 0.2 Hz ‘log’ data is translated into instantaneous ‘rig states’ which are then compiled into specific ‘operational states’ for insertion into the ‘activities’ screen of the IDS DrillNet or TourNet services. The real time drilling parameters are then re-processed to populate and deliver the relevant ‘Fixed Text Remark’ for each activity, as below, which shows the manual and LAR versions for the same 24hr period.
IDS Lessons Learned is an integrated solution that allows the operator or drilling contractor to capture and share knowledge and experiences – both good and bad - across the whole operation, irrespective of location and discipline. A lesson is created on-the-fly during operations or during after-action reviews. In the operational planning phase, the global Lessons database can be mined and analysed for valuable insights to ensure that a lesson, once learned, does not become an incident repeated. Adding a lesson during operations automatically connects the relevant activity description and coding to the lesson. Because the service is an integral part of the wider IDS ‘DataNet’ reporting services eco-system, ‘activities’ are captured along with key NPT information and a cloud of meta-data (rig, well, day, operation type, etc.) to ensure that each lesson can be searched and discovered by both event specifics and by searching for the broader context. A lesson without close-out is likely a lesson lost. As a lesson is created, the IDS LL service automatically notifies a pre-identified Responsible Party via email ensuring timely review and action. The responsible party is required to define ‘post lesson action’ and, at lesson closure, a Closure Destination is added to further learning in the future. The IDS LL DB comes with the industry’s most advanced search and recovery tools. Built around ‘Elasticssearch’ - a world-leading search and analytics solution - the user can build-out a query simply by concatenating search terms to find the most relevant lesson(s). In the example below, the terms ‘lost circulation blocked line’ return 497 results with the most relevant at the top. A hot link leads back to the original lesson The end game is to reduce risk and deliver safe operations globally.
Upstream operations mean being tasked with making multiple decisions on a daily basis which in turn requires teams and individuals to synthesise data and information from a number of sources. They therefore need relevant information immediately to hand with a service that gives them oversight of existing operations and an immediate visual cue as to their current status. This is Greenday. Operational intelligence to hand on smart phones and tablets.
Greenday is fine tuned to the needs of teams and individuals. Each will have specific critical criteria requiring a timely (<1 hour) response and which act as triggers for the Greenday status cue. Click through drills down to reveal KPI’s, NPT and other key context.

Drilling Performance Monitoring (DPM) delivers the most detailed of view of operational performance data available - the ultimate near real-time and post-well analysis tool, allowing the operator or drilling contractor to determine precise event durations for all the key operational aspects of the well.
Merging time-sequenced drilling data with the off-line daily report data means that key rig and crew performance metrics (tripping times, connection times etc) can be tracked and analysed to the nearest second. The process starts with ‘Operational State Detection’ (OSD) by which parameters within a WITS0 or WITSML (real-time) data stream are processed to determine ‘rig-state’. These rig-state values are stored in the IDS database and are used in both real-time and at the end of the well to generate a complete drilling performance overview with over a 100 KPI’s.
Depending on data availability, a wide range of KPI’s are available that cover all aspects of drilling ops, rig and crew performance. :
Simplified list of KPI’s in DPM
Anova simplifies data mining, dynamic benchmarking and analytics. A self-service approach allows users to analyse multiple sources of data through one single integrated application, making it possible to interrogate and cross-reference reported real-time data alongside dynamically benchmarked information derived from reporting data with visualisations delivered to dashboards and ‘GreenDay’. Anova makes it possible to deliver business intelligence from operational reporting and real time data. Examples below
Our mission is to extract every last cent of value out of the data. Anova Data Sciences (ADS) has been established to apply statistical and probabilistic analysis to the Anova Database (ADB) and the Anova Community Database (ACDB). Using the ‘R’ statistical analysis package and other data mining tools, ADS is focused on:
Second only to data quality, the biggest obstacle standing in the way of digitalisation is managing and accessing the multiplicity of document formats, data types and databases that comprise the Upstreams’ day-to-day information ecosystem. To tackle this problem, IDS has developed a number of web-delivered and on-premise ‘Bridges’ to put the right information at the fingertips of the manager, engineer or explorationist. Each Bridge has a simple UI coupled to a fully coded back-end to parse, process and deliver data with the minimum of set-up time and without intervention.
The EDM Bridge is a bi-directional interface that allows IDS to make a connection to an EDM instance even if the EDM is an on-premise installation and the IDS DataNet instance is in the Cloud. This design facilitates use of data from EDM in IDS DataNet but also updates to the EDM database from the daily reporting cycle in DrillNet and other IDS services. At the planning stage, plan time and trajectory in Landmark’s ‘WellPlan’ and ‘Compass’ are pulled into the IDS DrillNet reporting service at the start of the well, along with additional catalogue mapping for BHA/Tubular components. When drilling commences, daily reports generated in IDS DrillNet are processed directly into the EDM database offering a significant reporting upgrade while maintaining the integrity of the EDM environment. The EDM Bridge can also be used to analyse EDM Data using ANOVA where it can be combined for instance with Drilling Performance Data.
The new IADC DDR Plus is now fully digitized, thanks to the work of the IADC Advanced Rig Technology (ART) Data, Controls and Sensors (DCS) Subcommittee in 2019 (Paper SPE-199664-MS). This, combined with the advanced five-layer Operations code-set, allow the DDR Plus to be automated by leaveraging rig state detection (RSD) and further algorythms to compact those states into meaningful operations - operational state detection (OSD). Leaveraging other existing sources of data, and the various IDS Bridges, can largely automate the DDR Plus.
WITSML™ is an upstream initiative to provide open, non-proprietary, standard interfaces for systems transmitting, exchanging or receiving data. Managed and supported by Energistics, an industry supported non-profit, WITSML is the industry standards reference for the transmission of data from rig-site to the offices of oilfield service companies, integrators and operators. It is also used to share information among partners, vendors and government agencies.
IDS has for many years been an advocate, supporter and contributor to the WITSML Standard. All data in the IDS data model that are present in one or more WITSML Objects are available for our clients via a WITSML Interface. As part of our drive to automate reporting wherever possible, we ingest WITSML Data hosted by 3rd parties directly into IDS DataNet for all the common WITSML objects, e.g. BHAs, Surveys, Fluid, Reports, etc.
However, with the exception of the ‘log’ and ‘trajectories’ objects, many WITSML objects remain unpopulated. Recognising that this limits the options for report automation, IDS has developed FileBridge. With FileBridge, we are able to convert standard service company PDF’s (mud reports, BHA summaries etc) into data which we use in our reporting services and make available either in our the IDS WITSML instance or post to a 3rd Party WITSML server. This is all done in just a couple of minutes without the need for any human interaction other than posting the file.
IDSBridge is the tool that provides API access to data within the IDS Data model. The tool uses a documented query language to retrieve data and is accessible from most BI and Database tools over a web connection
Where required IDS supports direct or file based data export for regulatory reporting or agency reporting, for example the Norwegian Pretroleum Directorate (NPD), The Dutch Ministry or Energy and similar agencies
On any given operating day, a rig will generate up to 30 key documents in Word, Excel or PDF. These reports come from a range of service companies and other contractors with many of them describing or defining mission-critical operations. However, the content is often re-entered (retyped…) into other database and reports; typically a BHA is retyped four or five time, a mud report two or three times. IDS, through FileBridge, is committed to capturing the report at source and rendering it as data in a single action. FileBridge ingests documents in Word, Excel or PDF from either a dedicated email inbox or via a secure drag-and-drop interface. The content is then parsed, processed and delivered to both the IDS Drillnet/LAR reporting services and as WITSML data to a WITSML store, as data for analysis and storage. No more re-typing and no more multiple versions of the truth. With the document content now in WITSML format, the data is ready for sharing - at the rig, in the office, globally.
WordBridge is an add-in to the MS Word tool bar and opens a direct, live connection between the current Word document instance and the IDS ‘DataNet’ database. WordBridge uses ‘elastic search’ and AI/ML methodologies to deliver context driven data via key word triggers to the current document. Designed specifically to assist in writing well plans, after action reviews and operational reports in MS Word, Wordbridge-enabled documents are fully integrated with the IDS database. The use of a key word during composition automatically triggers the delivery of context-driven Lessons Learned and relevant technical data from DrillNet directly to a linked side-panel for use in the current document. In short, the full editing capabilities of MS Word combined with the access to the IDS DataNet transactional Database - a very powerful tool. WordBridge accesses a wide range of data objects and can work with any desktop, mobile device and with Office365. WordBridge can also be configured to deliver client-specific formats based on standard client templates and can be customised by the user to a particular individual’s workflow.
