This second edition of the DI Expert eBook provides a collection of articles written by staff analysts from Drillinginfo, the premier provider of data and insights for oil and gas exploration decisions. These articles focus on the Eagle Ford Shale play in south central Texas. The Eagle Ford Shale boom began in 2008 and has transformed the lives of mineral rights owners, communities and E&P operators throughout Texas and the United States. The Eagle Ford Shale is a cretaceous formation with a favorable brittleness index, which makes the formation ideal for hydraulic fracturing and economical unconventional production.

The Permian basin, a long time oil and gas producing region nestled in west Texas and southeastern New Mexico was once believe to have reached “Peak Oil” extraction levels. A significantly larger play than the booming Eagle Ford Shale, the Permian Basin has reemerged as a production pillar for the US, thanks to advancements in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing. Although still in early stages of new production, the Permian has already transformed the local economies surrounding the play, adding to the energy security of the U.S. In this issue of the DI Expert eBook, by Drillinginfo, the premier provider of data and insights for oil and gas exploration decisions, our expert analysts have delved into the complexities of the geology in the Permian, highlighted the successes of operators in the region and provided in-depth analyses on the play’s re-emergence.

Making predictions is a risky activity. Making predictions in the utility industry can be perilous. History is filled with missed or prematurely exuberant pronouncements of the future of utilities and energy. For example, in the late 20th century, many predicted that the world’s oil supply had reached peak production and would become scarce. Instead, shale gas and oil are in abundance. In the 1990s, people predicted that fuel cells and hydrogen would dominate the landscape by 2010, another illustration that predictions can fail to reach their promise. Learn more. Download now

he pursuits to reduce costs and avoid unplanned downtime remain primary operational goals in industrial plants. A convergence of factors has created an opportunity for industrial organizations such as manufacturing, oil and gas, chemicals and water treatment companies to aggressively pursue both. Although the pace of investment can be relatively slow in industrial automation (IA), technological advances, economic trends and market pressures have created an environment in which plants are compelled to modernize operational technology (OT) in order to ensure maximum efficiency and minimum process interruptions. Simply put, OT is getting old. The industrial sector is heavily capital-intensive and traditionally utilizes equipment with long lifecycles. Organizations with such outdated automation systems are in dire need of OT modernization to keep up with the pace of change, customer demands and business priorities, and reduce the risk of critical failures and costly downtime.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is connecting our world in ways that were unimaginable 10 years ago—collecting data on everything we do and using it to streamline our daily activities. In doing so, IoT is changing the way that consumers think about service. Service organizations must be prepared to support these new customer expectations to ensure continued satisfaction to strengthen and foster loyalty. Additionally, IoT is making its way into the enterprise, especially among organizations in industries like utilities, oil and gas, medical devices, manufacturing and telecommunications. Connected devices enable more efficient processes for maintenance and repair by constantly providing information on machines’ performance, environmental conditions, and possible failures. For example, a connected washing machine in a customer’s home could automatically send out an error report to the manufacturer when it experiences a failure. This is where field service management comes in.
