DOFERO Consultancy has launched an interface that provides access to the oilfield, on land and offshore, through smartphones and touch pads in real time.

DOFERO’s Viz-iSeries and latest Viz-iHMI2100 application for remote access of data connects field personnel with their supervisors, subject matter experts and original equipment manufacturers to help solve issues without the cost of traveling or nonproductive time. The system provides the medium for real-time maintenance and trouble shooting and real-time training.

“The goal is to manage the asset from start to finish,” Darrell Fanguy, co-owner and executive VP of sales and marketing for DOFERO, said at the product launch in Houston on 22 March. The Viz-iSeries and latest Viz-iHMI2100 includes multiple cameras for rig sites, a means of face-to-face communication and application for an early detection system for equipment failure. “This is nothing new; this is all proven technology,” he added.

DOFERO’s Viz iSeries includes:

  • Viz-iMech, a self-contained and self-deployable solution for rig sites;
  • Viz-iRig, a remote-access solution with multiple cameras for rigs sites;
  • Viz-iWire, an early detection system to predict equipment failure; and
  • Viz-iChat, a collaborative environment to communicate with rig sites.
