Real Time Operations Center for Shell unit

Shell is to deploy Halliburton’s remote technology Gulf of Mexico drilling and logging operations.

Shell E&P Co. has awarded Halliburton’s Energy Services Group a two-year contract for the provision of integrated drilling services for its Gulf of Mexico activities.


Paul Goodfellow, wells manager for Shell said, ‘The Shell/Halliburton Real Time Operations Center (RTOC) will be the lynchpin of this contract. The RTOC brings together drilling, exploration, and development teams to enable multi-disciplinary well delivery. The facility supports 24/7 well monitoring and interventions, real-time collaboration and decision-making.’


Halliburton VP Brad Murphy added, ‘Our integrated drilling and formation evaluation technology will help Shell meet its drilling challenges and maximize reservoir deliverability at the most effective cost.’


Landmark’s WITSML implementation OpenWire is leveraged in the RTOC. The RTOC is a component of a larger contract, for directional drilling, measurement-while-drilling (MWD), and logging-while-drilling (LWD) and is worth approximately $24 million.
