Technology Solutions

Many new technologies are currently being applied to solve existing problems in the oil and gas industry, and new ones are popping up every day. The Technology Solutions Steering Committee was formed to stay abreast of emerging technologies that we can use to solve big challenges for our customers. Teams have been formed and are working on three key initiatives:

ToolWatch

Without a system to track the location and condition of our tool and equipment inventory, we unnecessarily pay for rental equipment or purchase replacements for tools lost on a job. The automation group is beta testing a platform called ToolWatch that allows barcode-based inventory control, as well as maintenance scheduling and condition tracking for all equipment and tool inventory. The roll-out will be completed this summer with coatings and construction, then west Texas later this year.

Employee Portal

Information Technology Manager Sonny Orgeron is leading an effort to develop a system that will allow all Danos employees quick and easy access to the applications and data that they use most frequently. The assessment of functionality is complete, and research of available platforms is on-going.

Opening the Collective Mind of Danos Employees

A Tech Lab has been established at corporate headquarters to expose Danos employees to emerging technologies within our industry and provide a chance for our employees to experience it first-hand. A drone is the first piece of technology that has been placed in the tech lab with additional technology tools to be introduced throughout the year.

As our committees continue exploring new ways to use technology in our daily operations, we encourage every Danos team member to look for opportunities to incorporate technology into their current operation that can improve how we support our customers.
