Stay Informed and Reduce Risk with Aim’s Real-Time Operations Center

There are many uncertainties during the drilling process. From quality control and
troubleshooting to anti-collision and well correlations it is nearly impossible to have too
much data. However, combing through all this data to determine which corrections are
needed or why gamma counts don’t match can be a tedious and time consuming process.

This is where Aim Directional Services’ Real-Time Operations Center (RTOC) can help.
It is specially designed to monitor drilling activity 24 hours a day. Offering services like
real-time digital data feeds and immediate troubleshooting, the RTOC reduces risk while
keeping the operator informed. When combined with Survey Management, the RTOC can
perform collision monitoring, short collar corrections, multi-station analysis and more to
ensure the well is drilled as safe and precise as possible.

MWD Survey Corrections

Aim uses Superior QC FDIR technology to analyze 24 different error sources in order to correct surveys and reduce MWD survey Ellipse of Uncertainty (EOU) by up to 50%. Surveys are corrected for BHA magnetic interference, MWD tool sensor errors, and magnet reference errors.

Command Center Display

Optional Command Center display showing rig data, logs, and surveys. Left: A driller’s dial to display the last four toolfaces. Above the dial is various rig data from blockheight and bit depth to the last survey numbers. Center left: Well log displaying gamma and downhole temperature from MWD. Center: Measure Depth. Center Right: Rate of penetration (ROP) and weight on bit (WOB). Right: Survey, vibration, and shock data log.
