“IHS Drilling Performance Benchmarking solution is certainly a key contributor to Anadarko’s operational success. The nature of our land resource plays is so competitive and puts such a premium on efficiency. And we emphasize maintaining internal KPIs and constantly measure ourselves against past performance. But Dodson Data helps us go beyond by benchmarking our cycle times against regional competitors. These results lead to deeper competitor research as well as the opportunity to leverage a best-in-class basin position with investors—because being recognized as a low-cost operator is the key to winning in the North American resource play market.”
Drilling Engineering Manager, Southern & Appalachia Region
“Over the years, IHS has provided Shell with the tools necessary to benchmark our drilling programs against our peers. IHS provides a database where operators have access to:
A robust dataset containing technical and high-level cost data
An interface where data can be exported for further analysis
Along with the database, IHS provides a forum where operators can share best practices in drilling and completions operations
The forum approach allows operators to create a database that is fit for purpose for our business needs."
