Gator Tank Rentals tracks GoM assets with Geoforce

GPS-based equipment tracking solution streamlines operations and customer relations.

Gator Tank Rentals (GTR) has deployed a GPS-based oilfield equipment tracking system from Dallas-based Geoforce across its Gulf of Mexico operations. GTR provides offshore rental equipment services to the oil and gas industry. Geoforce’s web-based asset tracking and management system streamlines operations and simplifies the process of tracking thousands of equipment items across multiple customer locations.

Commenting the move, GTR CEO Carter Askew said, ‘After years of painstaking, manual inventory management of thousands of assets deployed in the field on behalf of many customers, I thought there had to be a better way to manage the process. Geoforce was the right solution for our needs.’

Geoforce’s intrinsically safe GPS tracking devices transmit position data to secure data centers one to four times per day by satellite. Geoforce’s web-based plots inventory at current and historical locations in Google Maps along with offshore lease block information. Virtual boundaries are set to generate e-mail alerts based on movement, and inventory at multiple locations can be managed automatically. GTR now shares asset information with its customers.
