We’re halfway through the year and thank you for the opportunity to keep your operations running smoothly and efficiently!
Each month, Greasebook pushes new updates to the platform.
That said, here is a quarterly round-up of some of the more notable features we pushed Q2 2022 – without further adieu, let’s dive in! 🏊♀️
Pumper Tracking & Geofences
We’ve enhanced our battery location tracing and rolled out Geofences!🗺
To be clear: a geofence is a boundary or ‘trigger radius’ around any asset (well, battery, injector, etc) based on GPS locations. 🧭
How does this help?
From the pumper side, any time they arrive within X feet of a geofenced asset the GreaseBook will immediately queue up the correct Battery, Well or Injector will be immediately presented when they open their app (which means no more scrolling through their battery list to find the lease they’re working on which saves valuable time… 👏)
From the Executive side, you’ll now be able to see exactly when anyone from your team has stepped foot on the lease – which will reduce all sorts of expensive oversights that can easily be avoided by simply confirming someone is showing up! 🤳📶
Advanced Custom Settings
For quick set up of new assets, GreaseBook builds each new Lease with several common ‘boilerplate’ data points in mind (Tubing, Casing, Separator, Heater, etc…)
However, we understand that every Lease is different and producers want to streamline their GreaseBook interface with only the items they need. 😉
No, we simply enable you to ‘hide’ any boilerplate variables that you may not use. 🚮
To adjust what you and your pumpers see, simply go to Settings > Batteries > open desired Battery.
Click the Variables tab and open whichever field you wish to modify…
From there, simply change the name or click ‘Is Hidden?’ to hide from view and hit save or rename the variable to something more useful!
Now your MCF & Battery entries can be modified to (perfectly) fit your operations!✅
Unique Entry Modes for Advanced Users
So that our pumpers fully engage each asset and take ownership every day, when taking any new measurements it’s important they have previous entries from which to reference ✅✅
And, GreaseBook’s default mode allows pumpers to check their previous work and reference historical production when submitting numbers for the day.
That said, we understand that some pumpers have an enormous amount of wells under their care, and they need to get in-and get out without any hassle 🏃
This is precisely why we developed ‘Speed Mode’.🏎️💨💨💨
Speed Mode in the app allows pumpers to input all their measurement information from a single screen.
🚩 While this drastically decreases the time it takes our pumpers to finish their production reports, keep in mind this option may not be optimal for every user!🚩
Because Speed Mode is designed with speed of entry in mind (and not pumper engagement), our pumpers won’t see the historical production to work from as a reference while entering their measurements…
So, when considering to use this feature, please note while it will save the pumper time it may cause reduced ‘Pumper Engagement’ with your assets while in the field… something we consider a key pillar of maximizing your production and operational efficiencies.☝
Access to Pumper Mesh
You might have noticed a new button on the bottom of your Executive Suite. With the uptick in recent workloads, we added a shortcut to our popular Pumper Mesh where you can access hundreds of GreaseBook’s Pumpers who are ready to get to work!
All you need to do is select your County, review the Pumpers in your area, and contact them.
Also, many of the pumpers listed are also current GreaseBook users!
That means not only do you now have options when it comes to pumpers, but you can also potentially contract an asset to a new pumper and have them up and collecting data for you on the Greasebook in less than an afternoon 🙂
When using our Pumper Directory, please note Greasebook is neither a pumper placement nor contract service company (nor do we want to be!)
So, while we can easily introduce you to pumpers its up to you to manage them 😉
Other Impactful Modifications
Some updates that you might not have noticed because they’re so slick you just started using them without even noticing… ✨
Quite a few of our Settings pages have gotten a face-lift😍!
Take for example our Custom Reports and our Alerts center. You can now duplicate reports, make edits and even add in a multitude of options including Well Performance and even Guest User Access.
Our Alerts center makes creating and managing alerts even simpler!⚠️
We’ve also amped up the Battery Settings Page so now you can fine-tune your GreaseBook. 🎶
Unique settings, advanced build-out settings and water-meter options allow you to match your GreaseBook to what you actually do in the field.
And the best part is, you can do it yourself!
For example, when you add a well, all you need is the API number and GreaseBook will do the rest for you!
Have questions regarding any updates or merely want to try them out? Give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll help you get setup!
Others items we continually update to ensure smooth sailing include that have been under development over the past several quarters…⛵
- ElasticOps – bring in any existing SCADA, monitoring, or telemetry into the Greasebook.
- Alerts Engine – text and email alert engine notifying you and your team of anything that’s off kilter according to the parameters of the alerts you set up in your operations.
- Custom Reports – new data fields, new layouts and cleaner processing enabling you to build ANY report (Excel, PDF, etc) with ANY layout all on the fly, all without having to be a computer programmer or tech genius to do it🤓🚫
- Logic Variables – adding new ways to calculate and combine the data behind your production data so you don’t have to 😉
The GreaseBook is the fastest growing app in the oil patch today. And, to keep up we push out new updates every week. Not sure if we can handle something in your ops? Ask us! 👋🙂
Given the number of producers we work with today in nearly every oil & gas producing basin across the US, when it comes to tracking your production and maintaining tabs on your folks in the field there’s not much we DON’T do.
And, if we don’t do whatever you’re after already, there’s a good chance we can knock it out in short order 👔
In summary, if you’re not letting GreaseBook run your daily ops, you’re working too hard. ⏳💸
