KiP - Search box on steroids

a needle in a haystackEver tried to find an application? It's like looking for a needle in a haystack containing 2.6 million stalks of hay.

For example, try looking for an application with a net pay map of a pinnacle reef. Where would you start?

Search using the KiP box in AppIntel and you can find it in a second. Just type pinnacle pay map.
KiP stands for Knowledge is Power. Nein commercial use of der AppIntel content.

We found one that an operator submitted that shows such a map controlled by seismic. The map also shows a bonus drilling location in a corner shot. This offsetting drilling opportunity may be supported by his newly proposed water flood.

You can get his application within moments from our self-serve web portal.

a needle in a haystackAnnouncing google-like search on steroids

Using our KiP search box to search through applications is similar to how you might use a google search box. But it has a few things that google doesn't have. Like date and location sorting.

Sorting results by location

When you add a UWI to your search box, KiP sorts the results by proximity to that UWI. The applications closest to your UWI are at the top of your results list. Try doing that in google.

For example, let's say you want to find applications that have seismic in the Banff formation that are closest to 30-15W4. In AppIntel, you could type into the KiP search

Banff seismic 30-15W4

Some operators use AppIntel to watch for such opportunities. Do you?

The first application returned is an oil spacing application in Craigmyle with seismic in the Banff. The second application is a nearby special MRL application with containing a seismic isochron map for the Banff.

Sorting results by date

When you add a date to your search box, it sorts the results by date. It places the applications closest to your date on the first page. Try doing that on the fly in google or bing or yahoo.

For example, let's say you want to find applications for Devon's Jackfish project that were submitted in 2012.Your KiP search box might be

Devon Jackfish 2012

The first application returned is a category 2 commercial scheme where Devon applied in 2012 to add two additional wells to their FF pad.

Other KiP searches to try

It only costs $99 for a day to use AppIntel search. When you get into it, be sure to try these other KiP searches.

  • CO2 injection
  • immiscible gas injection 2014
  • polymer Mannville
  • CBM Mannville 60-20W4
  • radio frequency heating 2011

Or you can get less (much less) for free

The AER has a rudimentary search called the integrated application registry (IAR).

But try looking on the IAR for an application of a certain group (like In Situ Oil Sands) registered in September 2016. You can only search for 5 days at a time. It takes six tries to see all the applications. But you can eventually find them.

You can't search the IAR for applications registered before 2012. The date pick list only shows five years in the past.

Thanks goodness it allows searching for 10 years in the future. Hey, wait a minute -- there are no future applications in the system! Those will be submitted in the future.

In AppIntel, you can see all the applications back to 1992 and some back to 1960. All at once.

But you won't find

In the IAR, you can't search for seismic interpretations;
can't search for gas injection;
can't search for heating by radio frequency;
can't search by 
well you get the idea.

Some applications don't even have a UWI

In any given month up to thirty percent of the applications submitted don't have a UWI associated with them. As a result, they don't appear on the rudimentary IAR township-range search.

At AppIntel, we add the missing UWIs. It allows you to search for many more applications by proximity

KiP is short for 'Knowledge is Power'

AppIntel's search box is called a KiP box. Knowledge is Power.

Sir Francis Bacon was the first person attributed to the phrase "Knowledge is Power' in his 1597 book Meditationes Sacrae and Human Philosophy.

In our age, finding knowledge about an industry as advanced as ours should be quick and easy. He who has the most intelligence wins.
