Company builds oil industry experience through partnership

Business for Patti Engineering has increased due to strength of engineering team, its partnership with AWC, and new oil drilling technology projects.

09/27/2012


Patti Engineering, Inc. announced continued growth in their relationship with AWC, an automation supplier and distributor of Siemens automation products. AWC and Patti Engineering teamed up to work with global oil well equipment manufacturers; supporting the design and implementation of complex automated drilling technology projects. 

Patti Engineering's experience with automation in new oil drilling technology has allowed them to assist with developing innovative auto drilling technology. At the recommendation of AWC, Patti Engineering was hired to implement Siemens hardware into a drilling solutions provider’s theoretical design that had previously failed using other technology. Patti Engineering was able to develop a concept program based on the company’s criteria, simulated the new PLC program extensively at the test facility and achieved favorable results in only two months. 

Horizontal/directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” are the technologies that both make shale drilling possible and controversial. With the tremendous growth in directional drilling due to the developments in fracking; control of the drilling process to maximize safety and efficiency is even more important. Automatic drillers are a large contributor in helping rig crews better control the directional drilling process.
