Innovate. Collaborate. Accelerate: Corva’s 2023 Hackathon
The Corva Hackathon 2023, with its theme of “Innovate. Collaborate. Accelerate.”, surpassed all expectations, bringing together industry leaders and Corva developers to tackle real-world challenges head-on. This 2-day event, held on July 20-21, witnessed an impressive lineup of participating teams from leading energy companies, including Baker Hughes, Cenovus Energy, Chevron, Cold Bore Technology, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, Emerald Surf Sciences, Marathon Oil, Nabors Industries, Newpark Fluid Solutions, NexTier Oilfield Solutions, Shell, Trinity Operating and The University of Tulsa.
The mission was clear – build a functional app within 24 hours using Corva’s Dev Center platform, aimed at solving pressing industry issues. As the clock ticked away, the teams worked relentlessly, fueled by their passion for innovation and the prospect of making a significant impact.
The hackathon culminated in a thrilling live demo presentation, where each team showcased their newly developed apps before a distinguished panel of judges. The judging criteria encompassed three crucial categories: Impact, Idea, and Execution. The panel featured industry experts, Brandon Amos, Scott Ball, Robert Jones, and Wade Pinder, who brought their wealth of knowledge to evaluate the projects objectively. Check out the award-winning categories and apps:
Best Idea: Emerald Surf Sciences
Real-Time Fluid Rheology Management App
Emerald Surf’s Real Time Fluid Rheology Management App was built to streamline data capture from multiple wellsite platforms and visualize it in real-time on a frac plug drillout app. By aggregating data on their own software, OpsViewer, from coiled tubing units, flow back spreads, and fluid rheology control units (FRCS), the app enables you to visualize CTU weight, ROP, depth, pressures, fluid rheology parameters, and chemical usage. As a result, the app makes it easier to make real-time data-driven decisions for maximum efficiency during frac plug drillout operations.
Best Execution: NexTier
Power Solutions App (Natural Gas Fueling Just-in-Time Delivery Management)
NexTier’s Power Solutions App is designed as a real-time CNG inventory system for wellsites. It provides real-time visibility of gas supply pressure to the wellsite, enabling you with live readings and inventory of CNG trailers on site. This app eliminates the need for post-stage straps and meter readings and provides more accurate emissions tracking and calculations.
Biggest Impact: Trinity Operating
Formation Boundaries Prediction App
Trinity Operating’s Dynamic Roadmap App incorporates company roadmaps into a dynamic workflow to predict formation boundaries. By using a machine learning model, the app is able to forecast gamma rays and detect formation top using offset well similarity. It was designed for the intermediate well section to alert drillers to adjust drilling parameters proactively to extend bit life.
Each winning team received well-deserved recognition and accolades for their exceptional contributions. The Corva Hackathon not only showcased the teams’ creativity and problem-solving skills but also underlined the power of collaboration and innovation within the energy industry.
