Rig-mounted Logging System to Set Drilling Industry Alight at Civils 2009

Please note that the following news item is an archived article. Therefore any links and information may now be out of date.

The next great leap in technology, and top of the geotechnical contractor’s wishlist for many years now, is set to take Earls Court by storm at Civils 2009. Ever since its pilot was launched at the Geotechnica conference in August the industry grapevine has been buzzing with excitement and anticipation at the first release by Keynetix of KeyLogbook, the first truly useable application for logging drilling information at the rig using rugged touch-screen technology.

Jointly developed by Keynetix and The Drilling Academy (aka Equipe Ltd) KeyLogbook addresses all the practical issues of electronic borehole logging in the field. Not only has the software to be robust, intuitive, and ergonomically designed for drillers to use, the hardware must also be up to the job. Of particular importance are visibility of the screen, particularly in bright sunlight, ability to withstand knocks and bumps, flying water and dust, and robustly mounted at, and powered from the rig.

Keynetix will be demonstrating the software and various hardware options at their stand, GP4, along with the highly popular PocketSI, the PDA logging system for consulting engineers, running on the TDS Nomad rugged PDA.  More about Keynetix at Civils 2009

Glovers Site Investigations, an early adopter for KeyLogbook, will also be demonstrating KeyLogbook on their stand (G48) at Civils 2009.
