Irish development company Skynet Labs launches first in suite of turnkey apps built for E&P field data cloud management

Skynet Labs, Oil & Gas analysis & optimization software company, is excited to announce the release of D.U.C Pro on smartphone and tablet for iOS and Android devices. D.U.C is a “must-have” mobile app tool for the E&P industry. “Drillers Unit Conversions” software app is the last word in oil & gas industry conversions. This feature-rich conversion application contains 6 different sections of conversions, 65 conversions, 521 unit metrics and 6,791 algorithms. Conversions include acceleration and angle, flow rates and frequency, volume and weight to weight per unit length. D.U.C. Lite is also available cross platform and provides the same functions as D.U.C. Pro but with a reduced set of conversions.

Uneconomical process flow is crippling the productivity and production rates of most oil companies. Analysis and communication competencies around big data do not exist for the mid-tier oil and gas industry. Spreadsheet issues and information redundancy are common problems at a mission critical level in the oil drilling space – upwards of 80% of drilling engineers spend 3 hours per day recording routine metrics and performing calculations using out-dated methodologies; paper and pencil, calculators, excel spreadsheets…D.U.C employs modern day real-time cloud technologies to mitigate expensive non-productive time.

D.U.C Lite, a limited version of the Drillers Unit Conversions app with ad-support and reduced formulas, is available for free to iOS and Android smartphone owners. D.U.C Pro can be purchased for €22.99 on the iOS app store and €19.99 on Google’s Android market place.
