Offset Drilling and Completion Benchmarking

Improve operations and reduce non-productive drilling time with in-depth performance analysis

Are your experts spending too much time on data gathering than analysis?

Utilize an exclusive member only database that includes performance benchmarking software and quality-controlled data—designed to provide multiple charting and reporting capabilities a regional or specific area of interest level for costs and time to drill comparisons. Drilling Engineers and managers, operations managers, assets managers and performance analysts use this subscriber-based exclusive membership solution to:

  • Improve drilling program efficiency and performance year-over-year
  • Quickly estimate ROP costs and days to drill
  • Aggregate and normalize key performance indicators
  • Identify Key Drilling Factors and best practices in specific areas of interest
  • Improve drilling operations through best in class offset data comparison
  • Identify “high risk” areas including Excessive Days Drilling, High Cost and Non- Productive Time
  • Export data directly to in-house systems for a deeper dive into details for design optimization


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.”
