Baker Hughes bags Perfomix

‘Intelligent energy’ solutions provider and Oracle partner adds PetroSocial drilling and production toolset.

Baker Hughes has acquired Houston headquartered Perfomix, provider of software for ‘intelligent energy’ solutions. Perfomix’ ‘PetroSocial’ drilling and production suite power real-time operations centers and digital oil field initiatives. Perfomix is an Oracle partner and its software is certified to run on Oracle’s Exadata database appliance. The company leverages Energistics standards and, in collaboration with Data Horizon, recently proposed a suite of data structures for national regulators (Oil ITJ Jan 2013). CEO Celestine Vettical is well known in the Witsml/Prodmlcommunity.

Perfomix’ data and advisory services span drilling, pressure pumping, completions and production operations and reporting. The acquisition complements Baker Hughes’ field devices and software portfolio with a ‘modern, scalable and standards-based technology platform.’ Perfomix will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Baker Hughes and will be integrated into the company’s remote operations services organization. More from BHI and Perfomix.
