Drilling Solution

Make Data Driven Decisions

Tatsoft's solution for Drilling Data Aggregation, in combination with Intellicess's Sentinel RT ™, an A.I. backend engine able to perform real-time streaming-data analysis, allows you to truly own your data so you can perform analysis in a reliable, consistent and controlled way.

The Solution

Use high frequency drilling data to drive better decisions

Tatsoft Rig Monitoring, Tatsoft RM, collects real-time data from Rigs, on-shore or off-shore locations, connecting with your existing field EDR or directly with the Control Systems, providing a local interface at the Rig and replicating the data to central offices, where it manages the archiving to your long-term data storage, such as OSIsoft PI, Microsoft Azure, Splunk or others.

Sentinel RT™ adds to this solution by providing real-time streaming-data analysis at the rig or central office, providing uniform source for the raw data. What sets Sentinel RT™ apart from its competition is a highly sophisticated data-cleansing algorithm built upon platform technology that uses a Bayesian network to differentiate between sensor and process faults in complex systems. 

With our solution, you’ll be able to centralize monitoring distributed production assets, with ESRI maps, real-time weather overlay, real-time status of key field variables, advanced trend charts and annotations tool, event notification, with extensive customization capabilities.


We have a combined 3 decades of experience of data-acquisition protocols on a new designed, 100% on top of .NET Framework, for high security and availability.  Built-in store and forward procedures caches data at Rig, in case of communication of central office is unavailable.


Our licensing models, allowing solution ownership or yearly subscriptions, and leveraging you own data repositories, replaces legacy applications by a fraction of the cost. Open platform allow changes and evolution with higher efficiency.


Our solution joins two flexible engines – FactoryStudio and Sentinel RT™, that allow acquisition and analysis of any data you may need. New displays, algorithms, data sources, can be integrated at the configuration level.

Have your own EDR (Electronic Drilling Recorder)

Tatsoft RM and Sentinel RT™ tackle all of the main challenges faced today to deliver a solution that allows you complete control over your drilling data: from acquisition to storage and analysis. Some of the benefits of using this solution include:

  • Reliable data in real time
  • Ownership of data
  • Improved visualization of data
  • Built-in storage at Rig site for local visualization and atomic store and forward
  • No data loss, when Rig is offline from Central office
  • Connection with Well planning tools
  • Integration with analytical tools and event detection
  • Drilling efficiency monitoring
  • Built-in Depth calculation and plotting
  • Torque and drag, cross-plots, survey displays
  • Comparing variables with offset wells
  • Support for batch drilling operation
  • Smart alerts and alarms
  • LAS and CSV Import and Exporting
  • Open and extensible application

Why Tatsoft RM is Different

Currently, industry leaders offer EDRs (Electronic Drilling Recorder) with many common limitations between them:

  • Daily Cost to acquire data, plus cost to store data on server
  • Set Design, No Flexibility
  • 1-10 second data
  • Fixed storage options and closed platform
  • Lack of real-time analytics integration

Tatsoft RM was created in top of Tatsoft FactoryStudio, therefore it is an open and extensible application. All user displays, real-time calculations, and storage and analytics integrations are open and customizable.

Failure to show the data’s true variation and data-time signify problems for data consistency and reliability. To enhance the legacy EDR data collection methods, Tatsoft provides an additional data feed from the rig PLC and control systems, capable of 10hz data output in real time.  Tatsoft RM supports data acquisition from WITS0, WITSML, Omron PLC’s, ControlLogix PLC, and various other field controls systems and sensors.

Enhancement in Data Reliability while keeping your current field EDR is a game-changer.

Just connect Tatsoft RM to your EDR, and you may even keep the data acquisition rate from 1 to 5 seconds. Tatsoft RM will align time-stamps and perform depth or any other real-time calculation, using standard, open and verifiable methods. Much more reliable data – with no rip and replace!

Wellbore 3d view

In order to increase accuracy, instead of using the Depth channels from the EDR, Tatsoft RM created the depth data real-time calculation directly from the TIME channels, available on the Rig EDR or directly from the PLC control systems.

Basic rig-states such as Drilling, On Bottom, ROP (Rate of Penetration), MSE, are calculated in real-time and included in the archives. Integration with your own rig state engine calculation is available, as well integration with third-party rig-states and analytics engines.

Tatsoft RM is the data hub providing consistent real-time data for analytic algorithms. Application cases include integration with analytics created in Microsoft .NET, Python and Java.

Tatsoft provides a reliable and easy to deploy platform to do the data acquisition, data flow from Rigs to central office to archives, security model for users and data, time-stamp and data quality aligning, graphical visualization and API (Application program Interface) to external analytics.

This software infra-structure provided by Tatsoft allows the data analytics can focus on the algorithms engines itself, not having to deal with the peripheral tasks of data gathering, archiving or visualization.  

The best data analytics tools that is closely integrated with Tatsoft RM is Intellicess Sentinel RT™

Sentinel RT™ is an A.I. backend engine able to perform real-time streaming-data analysis at the rig or in the office. Sentinel RT™ has a highly sophisticated data-cleansing algorithm and uses a Bayesian network to differentiate between sensor and process faults.

Tatsoft RM has built-in displays and logic, to allow integration with Sentinel RT™, to add the following functionality:

  • Intuitive and customizable Cone Drilling™ advisory
  • Advanced rig state detection
  • Real time torque and drag analysis
  • Real time event detection
    • Washout in drill string and/or pump failure
    • Kick & lost circulation
    • Drilling dysfunctions (stick slip, whirl, bit balling, bit bounce, etc.)
    • Overpull and underpull
  • Generate and email / text alerts based on events detected
  • Consume contextual data from software like OpenWells®, WellView®, etc. to be provided as input data for Sentinel RT™.

Tatsoft RM has a secure and easy deployment model. On the corporate network, use the Active-Directory or LDAP groups to define which users can access each Well, and the installation  is in one server computer. As a result, the users and operators don’t need any install in their computers, just the URL link to the server.

For mobile applications,  in order to enhance security and performance, Tatsoft has a native iOS application for iPhones and iPads, which will work with the same LDAP groups from your office or use validation. Furthermore, an Application Gateway adds another lawyer of security, so only the allowed parts of the data is made available to registered users on the Internet domain.
