Move to AI-powered scheduling software and dramatically increase efficiency
On the surface, MS-Excel and MS-Project can appear to be quick solutions for scheduling but look deeper. Using spreadsheets to model wells, rigs and resources is a time-consuming, manual process that increases the potential for human error. What’s more, they do not provide true insight into the impact of schedule changes or updates on important Key Performance Indicator metrics. You cannot easily and rapidly create and evaluate schedule scenarios and can’t make effective use of important information, like lease expirations, costs, and production type curves.
Why Actenum DSO is your optimal choice for scheduling
Designed specifically for operations scheduling, Actenum DSO automatically builds and optimizes complex schedules at a speed and accuracy that are impossible with a manual spreadsheet. It can handle thousands of wells, making management of operational complexity easy. You benefit from an improved ability to rapidly respond to budget constraints, equipment breakdowns, or crew availability limitations. It provides immediate clarity on the impact and risks resulting from schedule changes as well as insight into critical milestone dates, enabling you to increase performance and efficiency.

DSO’s scenario comparison functions provide us with better quality data, and a better ability to identify optimization opportunities. This, along with automated metrics and enhanced reporting is enabling us to make more informed analyses and quicker business decisions.
During our pilot of Actenum DSO, we were able to identify 10 hours in time savings in a typical business week through improved eﬃciency using DSO’s robust UI and out-of-the-box conﬁgurability.
Actenum DSO has allowed us to hit our budget at a level never before seen, and the dynamic, “What if?” scenario planning capability has dramatically improved our decision making.
Benefits achieved with Actenum DSO/Upstream rig scheduling software

“We saved $1.5 million in people time in 3 months”
The VP of Operations at an IOC called us to say that his organization had saved an estimated $1.5 million in the first 3 months of using Actenum DSO/Upstream for rig scheduling. Formerly his team used MS-Excel to schedule drilling operations, and this required a daily meeting of up to 3 hours with 20 people attending. He referred to it as “the 3-hour argument”. After a very short time using Actenum DSO/Upstream the meeting evolved to a 4-person 15-minute daily session. The rig schedule was viewable by all attendees, the impact of changes was immediately visible, and questions about moving wells resolved rapidly.

“Scenario capability for rapid decision-making”
Actenum DSO/Upstream’s scenario creation and evaluation capability is used by a leading US operator to rapidly analyze multiple versions of a drilling and completions schedule, to determine the appropriate course of action to maximize project value. Unlike many other operators, the drilling project schedule is frozen only for a six-week period, and this enables them to rapidly reconfigure their approach to the project in response to operational and market conditions. In one situation the customer used a DSO/Upstream scenario to determine the impact of a decision to spend an additional $12 million in one area of an asset. They forecasted a $45 million return within 60 days, and this proved to be the case.
