Executive Summary

Formed in 1988, Oilfield Instrumentation is dedicated to serving the oil and gas industry with top drilling instrumentation equipment, advanced technology and reliable service. As the company continues to expand its portfolio offerings to remain competitive in the marketplace and better serve its customers, Oilfield needed a strong development consulting partner to create a custom application UI for displaying rig data in its existing drilling management application.


The company needed a partner with strong user interface and branding experience to expand its existing drilling management applications. The custom user interface would:

Display drilling parameters along with IADC reporting, in a user-friendly, cutting-edge format that utilized a touchscreen interface for all application components

Provide graphically rich visualizations of real time data streams from multiple third-party sources

Be highly configurable, allowing end users and developers to display data into custom interfaces


After winning a competitive bid process, Sparkhound built a well-defined, custom user interface to support Oilfield’s existing drilling management application:

 Built system objects as individual components within the Windows-based application to accommodate user configuration and third-party data feeds
 Captured and displayed drilling survey information in a user-intuitive, highly-customized interface for touchscreen devices


With a dynamic user interface utilizing advanced graphic technology, the new UI helped modernize an older interface, increase long-term global efficiencies and productivity, and made critical drilling information more readily available to customers. Because of Sparkhound’s custom development work and prescriptive approach, we now support a portfolio of applications to maximize Oilfield’s competitive advantage.
