We partnered with FTR for 2 years (2014 – 2016) with a common goal of reducing move times between pads and reducing walking time between wells. They achieved buy in from rig managers and crews through shared information and LEAN Solutions. The results were a 49% reduction in move times between locations and a 53% reduction in walking time between wells. I would highly recommend FTR and their engineering approach to streamline rig operations.
