RigMinder RTOC Improves Drilling Decision-Making


RigMinder provides 24/7 support from our Real-Time Operations Centers (RTOCs) located in Houston, TX; Villahermosa, Mexico; and Aberdeen, Scotland.

These operations centers are a tremendous value add during the drilling process where the initial decisions made can impact all aspects of well construction.

The RigMinder RTOCs participate in everything from the planning and engineering phases of well construction, to analytics all the way through to the final review of KPIs to help drillers improve efficiency and lower costs, while maintaining a safe work environment.

RigMinder RTOCs are manned by drilling experts making decisions with you in real time to assist with well placement, modeling, metrics and data analysis, and risk reduction. The goal of every RigMinder RTOC is to minimize NPT and optimize ROP through:

  • On-Site and RTOC Directional Drilling Supervisors and MWD Engineers
  • Remote drilling monitoring and operation via Criterion on multiple rigs simultaneously
  • Communicate directly with the driller providing direction regarding:
    • Verification of tool face orientation/settings
    • Slide distance
    • QA/QC surveys
    • RSS settings and downlinks
    • Drilling parameters – WOB, RPM, Differential Pressure, Torque, Flow Rate
    • Initiate and monitor automatic steering operations on compatible rigs
