NOV and Bardasz Announces Collaboration in Data Management Technology and Services

To address the growing demand for comprehensive data management solutions in the oil and gas industry, especially with regard to drilling completions and operations, National Oilwell Varco (NOV) and Bardasz have signed a collaboration agreement that will bring the latest Octopus suite of WITSML applications to the Max Platform. It will combine NOV’s sensor, data acquisition, and cloud technologies with Bardasz’s WITSML and Energistics Transfer Protocol (ETP), which will allow for industry-leading data aggregation and cloud data delivery.

“Through its Max Partners program, NOV brings best-in-class technologies to address the increasing demands for digital services in the oilfield,” said Ramon Rodriguez, who is the Director of Digital Commercialization at NOV.

Benefits of this Agreement

Operators today must be able to implement custom solutions so they can overcome the limited interoperability between equipment manufacturers, the data delivery capabilities of service companies, as well as the ability of modeling and analytics tools to collect data in specific formats. By using the combination of NOV and Bardasz technologies, they can leverage the data integrity and performance that WITSML 2.1 and ETP 1.2 provide. It will allow them to keep their investments in modeling and analytics applications while avoiding the expensive and time-consuming process of technology replacements and retraining programs.

“By integrating our solution with NOV’s Max Platform, we bring together the best elements of Bardasz and NOV in order to provide customers with the highest quality real-time data for business and operational decision-making,” said Pablo Perez, who is the CEO of Bardasz.

The collaboration between these two companies will allow customers to perform data analytics in real time by using high-frequency/low-latency data from all of the equipment and service companies used at a well site. This will result in more informed operational decisions, improved efficiency, and reduced risk.
