Real-Time Operations Center (RTOC)

24-hour quality control, technical support, remote MWD operations, and real-time monitoring of drilling activity to ensure wellbores are drilled safely and accurately

Stay Informed and Reduce Risk with Aim’s Real Time Operations Center (RTOC)

In today’s digital age, it’s nearly impossible to analyze the extensive amount of data associated with drilling a wellbore—and for this reason, Aim Directional has established a 24/7 collaborative environment to provide you with access to vital information and the ability to make informed and prompt decisions. Our Real-Time Operations Center (RTOC) is specifically designed to monitor drilling activity 24 hours a day, and provide technical support to you as well the field team.

The focus of our experienced RTOC staff includes monitoring critical field operations 24/7, running remote MWD operations and providing troubleshooting support to identify issues in a timely manner to decrease the risk of failures. We leverage our workforce to reduce the number of personnel required at the rig site, minimizing your potential HSE issues and daily costs.

Advanced Drilling Optimization Center (ADOC)

Our Advanced Drilling Optimization Center (ADOC) remotely monitors directional performance to ultimately maximize drilling efficiency and wellbore accuracy.

Aim Directional is dedicated to providing our clients with the best possible service on each and every job. To honor this dedication, we created our Advanced Drilling Optimization Center (ADOC) in Houston, TX—consisting of our most knowledgeable and experienced Directional Drilling personnel, who remotely monitor directional performance. Their expertise can be applied to multiple wells simultaneously, instead of just focusing on a single well. They analyze all available data and drilling parameters to maximize drilling efficiency and wellbore accuracy.

Services Offered

  • Torque & Drag Analysis: Pre- and Post-Run

  • Hydraulics Analysis
Aim Advantages
  • Experienced directional drillers available nightly to support field staff and clients
  • Real-Time Curve Monitoring: build rates and projections
  • Target and window monitoring
  • Torque & drag analysis allows faster, easier drilling which increases BHA and bit life
  • Drilling log review & parameter optimization

Survey Management & Anti-Collision

We provide enhanced MWD survey corrections, in real-time or post run. By reducing the ellipse of uncertainty on surveys, we ensure more accurate wellbore placement to improve the drainage of your reservoirs.

Our Survey Management specialists use Superior QC FDIR technology to correct MWD surveys, by analyzing 27 different error sources. This reduces the MWD Survey Ellipse of Uncertainty (EOU) by up to 50%. Surveys are corrected for BHA magnetic interference, MWD tool sensor errors, and magnetic model reference errors.

Due to the risk associated with tighter wellbore spacing, Aim Directional focuses on survey quality and monitoring of all potential anti-collision concerns. Our services include anti-collision scans to you and the field staff in real-time during the drilling process.
