Petris announces Recall enhancements

Log data management tool now shares PetrisWinds infrastructure, adds GIS and ‘Archive’ edition.

Houston-based Petris Technology has been busy integrating the Recall petrophysical data management system into its PetrisWINDS Enterprise (PWE) infrastructure. Petris acquired Recall from Baker Hughes last July. The company claims that the enhancements are the foundation of a strategy to make Recall ‘the most open well bore data management system in the market.’


Petris CTO Jeff Pferd said, ‘We now have a product road map that amplifies the value of both Recall and PWE, adding value by integration. The extensible and scalable architecture used by Petris supports the growth of Recall and will make integrating new capabilities more efficient, giving customers an open upgrade path.’


New capabilities include web-based access to Recall data, a GIS interface for search and ‘full scale’ integration of Recall into PWE—allowing for bi-directional data exchange between Recall and other applications. Another novelty is the implementation of relational database access to Recall which now provides a relational view of Recall data with full SQL support.


Petris has also announced a slimmed-down ‘Archive’ version of PWE designed for use with a single data source such as Recall. Archive users can upgrade to a fully-featured PWE as needs expand.


Petris VP Chris Hamley added, ‘PWE is proving to be the perfect vehicle to expand the interoperability of RECALL, as it has for other applications.’
