IHS Markit Rushmore Drilling Performance Review (DPR)

Improve well operations planning and budgeting.

Why do operators participate in the DPR?

For over 25 years, operators have been sharing well data through the DPR. They use this data to help them better plan and budget their well operations as well as drive and measure performance improvement.

Join the DPR today to:

  • Find data on more than 170 operators and 60,000 wells in over 100 countries
  • Access industry data and competitor intelligence
  • Obtain highly useful technical, time and cost data
  • Decide which data to share, the rules for sharing, yearly changes needed and how additional value can be gained

Benefits of participating in the DPR

  • Establish your competitive performance - It is nice to know you are doing better than last year, but the real bottom-line measure is how you are performing in relation to your competitors.
  • Provide a driver for improvement - If you can show that others are doing it faster or less expensively, you can use this fact to accelerate improvement.
  • Target the big gaps - Most operators are good at some types of wells, or in some areas, but not so good in others. Use this information to make sure you target the biggest potential gains.
  • Discover what the best-in-class operators do differently - While the data will not tell you precisely how they deliver superior performance, it will provide clues and indicators that you can build upon.
  • Plan and budget for wells in new areas - You can access technical, time and cost data on tens of thousands of land, offshore and deepwater wells from over 100 countries. Use this data to evaluate the viability of future prospects.
  • Design and plan wells - Engineers can study offset well data during the well design phase to consider how other operators of nearby wells react to the challenges in terms of wellbore size, trajectory, other design aspects, casing schemes, mud selection etc.
  • Compare ROP rates - Plot offset well time-depth charts using the tables of time-depth data provided, to see how planned ROP rates compare with others and ensure that the most appropriate targets are set.
  • Evaluate progress - Add an external viewpoint to your performance, report on your achievement of internal targets and integrate benchmark results into your standard measurement process.
  • Benchmark internally within a multinational company - Participate in the studies on a global basis and use them for benchmarking between your own companies. Many multinational firms have used their participation to drive standardization of metrics across their corporation and to help improve data quality and internal reporting.

Getting started

How to participate?
  • An operator contracts to participate in at least one country for at least one year.
  • The operator provides data on all wells it drills that year in each country in which it is participating.
  • The data is independently quality checked and published on the website.
  • Access to other operators' data for that year is provided, operator data from 1989-1999 is provided free of charge.
  • An operator may also participate retrospectively.
  • If an operator provides all of its wells, the operator is given access to data in all countries, even if it does not drill there.
Data coverage

Approximately 120 total data fields including:

  • Well indentification
  • Drilling technical details and methods
  • Drilling fluid and coring/logging
  • Hole size, mud and casing
  • Time durations including NPT
  • Costs
  • Time - depth chart
Data entry and automated data entry import
  • Excel workbook input
  • Workbook emailed to IHS Rushmore for QC
  • IHS Rushmore automated and manual QC checks
  • Queries on data between participant and IHS Rushmore
  • Data published
  • Data extraction service - IHS Rushmore can provide a data extraction service for participants. This removes the burden of data reporting for operators, allowing them to focus on the end product - the DPR Database. For more information on data extraction, please contact our sales team.
  • Data extraction import tools - Access several reporting application vendors who provide data extraction import tools for the DPR.
Access to benchmarking tools
  • DPR key performance indicator metrics
  • DPR charts - Time-depth charts, hole section analysis, costs and the ability to add planned wells against published wells to chart
  • REDD (Rushmore Estimated Drilling Days) - This is a well time estimation tool developed by IHS Rushmore. After a user fills in a number of fields, the REDD provides a P50 estimate of the number of days the "average" operator would take to drill a well from spud to TD excluding coring and logging operations but including NPT and waiting on weather. More detailed information on the REDD is available to participating operators.
  • RDI (Rushmore Drilling Index) - This tool was developed in response to a request some years ago by the DPR participants, who asked IHS Rushmore to use their global drilling database to develop an index of drilling "difficulty" which would allow them to group and compare the drilling performance of wells of similar difficulty, "normalize" drilling performance across different types of wells and "normalize" drilling performance across different units or countries.
  • The DPR is an ideal set of data for this analysis, as it covers a large number of countries and many different types of wells. Furthermore, because operators submit data on all their wells, both "good" and "bad", there is a wide spread of drilling performance levels.
  • The RDI is open ended and index numbers range from about 10, for the "easiest" wells, to over 200 for the most difficult.
