Halliburton opens eRedBook for drillers

The famous Halliburton Red Book has been e-enabled and is available as a free download.

Halliburton has just released an electronic version of its ‘Red Book’ for drilling operations. The eRedBook software evolved from Halliburton’s ‘Red Book’ cementing tables reference guide, first published in 1929. Today, the eRedBook includes calculators for daily operations, an interactive wellbore tool for sharing well schematics and information on Energy Services Group products, API pipe data and other resources.


Halliburton senior VP David King said, ‘The eRedBook package is the most user-friendly and complete digital oilfield toolkit available. It’s a smarter way for industry professionals to work.’ The package offers a straightforward navigation system that allows for faster access to accurate information, calculations and design tools to help improve decision making.

Free download

The eRedBook software contains all the data from the original, hardcopy RedBook reference guide along with expanded content. Users can transfer cut and paste information to e-mails or other documents. With an internet connection eRedBook’s self-update function will automatically download new content, including calculators, revised API pipe data, and additional features as they become available. Dowload the eRedBook free from www.halliburton.com. You may also like to checkout Schlumberger’s i-Handbook—another free download, from www.slb.com.
