The digital twin transformation of an oil rig

Drilling software – monitoring and management of operations, data collection, analysis and predictions, financial reporting.

About the client

Sekal, a leading company in real-time drilling engineering, has established itself as a prominent figure in the oil and gas industry.


The client faced the challenge of operating with an outdated system, limiting their ability to effectively monitor drilling operations and provide in-depth data analysis. The legacy software’s incapacity for predictive analysis and comprehensive financial reporting resulted in inefficiencies.

Moreover, the complexity of drilling operations and the transition to a cloud-based system posed significant obstacles, given their limited expertise in modern technologies and resource constraints.


The implemented solution revolutionized Sekal’s drilling operations, enhancing their efficiency, safety, and financial management capabilities. Our modernized information system enabled proactive decision-making through real-time data analysis, contributing to a significant reduction in the likelihood of accidents and operational downtime. The cloud-based architecture and distributed system ensured uninterrupted functionality across various drilling sites, empowering Sekal to operate seamlessly and securely in diverse environments. The enhanced financial reporting capabilities provided comprehensive insights for informed decision-making and resource optimization, further strengthening Sekal’s competitive position in the market.
