Pioneer Energy Services provides contract drilling and production services to the oil and gas industry. Their wireline operation services measure formation properties in oil and gas wells through electrical lines of wire. The logs created by these measurements can be 2-3 gigabytes in size and need to be shared with global partners and customers. This motivated Pioneer in search of an enterprise file sharing solution to address these problems:

  • Log files being too large to reliably send to staff and customers from well sites.
  • Inefficiency when sending files from remote locations with faulty connection.
  • IT department insufficient to host their own 24/7 file transfer solution.
  • Data being stored on discs and external drives and using paper processes making quick data retrieval difficult.

Pioneer Energy Services is using the Thru File Exchange and Collaboration Platform to streamline the transfer and access of large files in its global wireline operations.

Ease of Use – Pioneer has enjoyed Thru’s easy-to-use interface because of its simple functionality. Having connectors to applications such as Outlook and Salesforce adds convenience and maintains a simple workflow. Users can send emails with a secure link that allows the recipient to download any size file.

Access Anywhere, Anytime – To increase global file transfer speed, Thru has data centers around the world where transferred files are mirrored to selected locations for low latency uploads and downloads. This is essential for Pioneer’s wireline operations to efficiently send large files globally.

Security – Thru is built from the ground up with security protection in mind and has never experienced a breach. Complete tracking of every file in the system gives assurance of who has seen corporate data and when. Multiple certifications for data centers combined with extensive network and application security offer peace of mind.

Administration – Consolidating files and folders into one portal is important for enterprises that need to secure and streamline processes. Users of Thru, like Pioneer, utilize a number of security features to simplify the management of multiple users, groups and files in the system.
