Microsoft Power Apps Development for an Oil Producer
29 APR 2020
The client is a reputed oilfield service company in the USA engaged in the exploration and extraction of oil across the country. With expertise in drilling and building oil wells, the company extracts thousands of barrels of natural oil every year and meets the international energy demands.
The company drills several wells across the country and is naturally engaged in intensive well testing processes to acquire data on the hydrocarbon properties, well behavior, reservoir temperature and pressure, etc. With several well engineers involved in well drilling and well testing, the company lacked a digital platform to acquire accurate real-time data for different production rates tests conducted.
The client approached Star Knowledge to quickly build an application for its well engineers to calculate accurate well tests data, generate real-time reports and store them for future references. With a center of excellence in Microsoft SharePoint, workflow automation and Power Apps development, the Microsoft-certified consultants at Star Knowledge proposed to build an application using the low-code/no-code technology platform – Microsoft Power Apps on Office 365.
The innovation skills of Star Knowledge’s Microsoft Power Apps developers were put to test as the team had to quickly build an application that captures, generates, and stores accurate real-time data and produces reports for frequent, rigorous tests. The application was further expected to produce faster real-time results as the rates fluctuate for every test conducted.
With proven track-record of building custom SharePoint forms and workflow solutions to automate business processes for customers across a wide range of industries, the Microsoft Power Apps consultants at Star Knowledge built a low-code Power Apps application – a digital platform for the well engineers to calculate the petroleum well test with certain user input in the same app and send the output as a report which helped them fetch real-time results and realistic overview for further decision making on the improvement and development of the wells.
The solution involved the use of:
- Microsoft Power Automate (Microsoft Flow) to automate workflows
- Custom API’s to enable access to apps and data
- SQL Server for storing the generated results and reports
- Microsoft SharePoint and OneDrive for creating and sharing of the reports
The application was designed and built keeping the client’s business needs and the requirements of the well engineers.
- A digital platform for conducting rapid well tests
- Calculation of accurate test results
- Generating real-time accurate reports
