Tracking Core Samples and Offshore Drilling Assets

Weatherford Laboratories, a provider of rock and fluid analysis services for the oil and gas industry, is tracking earth samples via radio frequency identification as they move from the laboratory’s warehouse to an offshore drill ship, and then back to the lab for testing and storage.

World Pipelines' Magazine - Tracking Pipeline Assets (Page 28)

The Pipeline Track team possesses a wealth of intellectual property in the IT, logistics, and oil and gas industry. As such, we provide innovative RFID solutions for the implementation of asset and warehouse management systems in the oil and gas industry, serving both the domestic and international sectors.

Our pipeline construction clients want a solution that can track pipe joints, beginning from receiving it from the mill, all the way to the right-of-way (ROW).

Pipeline Track’s Get a Grip on your Assets© asset tracking solution offered a complete answer for all of their needs. It allowed them to automate importing pipe attributes, print and program RFID labels to uniquely identify each joint of pipe, and track each joint location by GPS coordinates.

Energy Industry Asset Tracking
Energy Industry Asset Tracking

There are hundreds of millions of power poles and components installed throughout the world. These structures serve as the backbone for delivering power to the consumer. The ability to locate and maintain those assets is a responsibility that lasts for many years. Comprehensive maintenance history of must be managed and accessible 24/7. Accurate and up to date records are critical to ensure the safety and reliability of those components.

RFID For Pipeline Management
RFID For Pipeline Management

We examine the “Pipeline Problem” – by explaining that there isn’t just one problem but a series of them which can become a serious drain on resources, time and safety.

Current methods focus on identifying joints. We have used joints as the example throughout this paper but virtually everything we have said about using RFID on joints applies just as much to all other material and equipment used in the oil & gas market.
