RigMinder EDR and Data Management

Our Highly Accurate Data Enables High-Performance Drilling

The RigMinder EDR (electronic drilling recorder) system collects highly accurate data through which we are able to provide the technologies and services that enable better producing wells, greater profitability and a lower cost operation. A key differentiator for RigMinder is that our customers own the data collected at the well site which is invaluable for assessing existing and future well operations.

Through a network of sensors on the rig floor, pumps and pits--integrated with RigMinder software--real-time data is displayed for rig site personnel so they can better manage your well operations and minimize risk. The RigMinder EDR is a comprehensive system, with full visualization, reporting, payroll integration and data management capabilities. Our EDR enables accurate monitoring, measuring and dissemination of data and information related to rig and well construction performance – and assists in determining ways for continuous improvement in all aspects. Alternatively, the data acquired can be directed to any other EDR system, without the need to install any additional sensors

The RigMinder EDR features:

  • Modular design
  • Integration and automation platform
  • Information can be transmitted wirelessly
  • Easy Rig Up / Rig Down
  • Ultra-high speed data sampling rates (>10,000 Hz)
  • Optimized offsite data transmission and storage
  • Customized user interface, reporting and analytics
  • Third-party data integration
  • You own your rig data

System Features

Driller’s Touchscreen Display
The RigMinder Rig Floor Display is a 19″ all in one Class 1 Div. 2 Touch Panel Computer. This display comes pre-loaded with the latest RigMinder EDR software. Several mounting options are available.

EDR Workstation
The RigMinder EDR Workstation is a custom built 24″ all in one touchscreen desktop computer that comes fully equipped with battery back-up, WiFi, speakers and multiple connectivity options. The Workstation comes pre-loaded with the latest RigMinder EDR software.

Main Processing Unit
The MPU serves as a central collection point for all sensor data acquired around the rig and is where all data is logged and transmitted throughout the rig site via Site Wide WiFi. The MPU also serves as the communication hub for the Satellite control system and Class I Div. II phone system. The MPU comes in a military grade enclosure and can be installed in the Toolpush shack or the VFD house.


Pits, Pumps and Temperatures
The PPT POD is used for the collection and processing of data from mud pits, trip tanks, pumps and temperature sensors. This self-contained unit can be run independently or as part of a full EDR system. Information that is processed within the PPT Pod is wirelessly transmitted to the MPU through the use of the Site Wide Wi-Fi.

Depth Pod
Drilling sensor pod
The Depth Pod monitors Measured Depth, Bit Depth, ROP Weight on Bit, Block Height, Hook Load, Top Drive, and Sensor disconnect warnings. This self-contained unit can be run independently or as part of a full EDR system. Information that is processed within the depth Pod can be transmitted via Ethernet to the MPU or wirelessly through the Site Wide WiFi.
