"Before we started using GreaseBook it was a little messy. Each field supervisor would use a different excel sheet that they created and it was just time consuming for me to get a handle on what was going on in the field. Now, we're all on the same page all the time.
It's simple, it's user-friendly. As soon as we got it set up, we were off and running the next day. It stands out by giving reports every morning and I can see what happened the day before. It's just, it's a super user-friendly and simple product."
How simple is GreaseBook’s software to use for yourself and your pumpers?
Nicholas: Greasebook has been super simple to use on a daily basis. As soon as we got it set up we were off and running the next day.
Introduce yourself and explain where you’re located and what your company does?
Nicholas: My name is Nicholas Melosi. I'm the Chief Operating Officer of American Patriot Oil and Gas. We're an exploration and production company who operate in East Texas, South Texas, and the Gulf Coast.
How did you get into the business?
Nicholas: I got into the business by studying Geology at Southern Illinois University, Carbondale. And from there, I went to North Dakota to work on a rig as a Wellsite Geologist. I enjoy most about the oil and gas company, that's just, it's really exciting and fun to drill wells and operate and to work with all the different people. It's just been a great experience.
What was it like before you started working with GreaseBook?
Nicholas: Before we started using GreaseBook it was a little messy. Each field supervisor would use a different excel sheet that they created and it was just time consuming for me to go through each one of them and collect the data that I needed and see, you know, what happened on a daily basis and prepare my reports for the board and just to kind of get a better handle on what's going on in the field. You know, now I can open up the web page, check out their notes, check out production, check out what's down, what needs to be done and it's just a great interface for the field.
What specific problems were you trying to solve with GreaseBook’s software?
Nicholas: Consistency and ease were probably the two biggest problems we’re trying to solve and we definitely have.
What makes GreaseBook stand out from other industry software you’ve seen or worked with in the past?
Nicholas: It's simple, it's user-friendly. It stands out by giving reports every morning and I can see what happened the day before. It's just, it's a super user-friendly and simple product.
What was the obstacle that almost prevented you from working with GreaseBook initially?
Nicholas: The biggest obstacle definitely was the change of just implementing a new system. Once we overcame that it was pretty straightforward.
What has exceeded your expectations and surprised you the most since working with GreaseBook?
Nicholas: Their development is really coming along now. Now, you can upload well files. So, if we are doing a tubing job I can upload the most recent tubing detail and the tool pusher and pumper will know exactly what's going on down the hole and shouldn't be any surprises.
If a colleague or business associate was on the fence about trying GreaseBook, what would you tell them?
Nicholas: It's definitely worth the money for consistency.
How is the usability of the GreaseBook app- How do you use it- computer, tablet, phone- or all of the above- Talk a little about how you use the app and where?
Nicholas: It's user-friendly. I use it mostly on my computer just throughout the day if I'm working back and forth with pumpers making notes on what's going on or what's happened or what we need to do or you know materials or supplies we need to order and just keep all my notes on there. And so things are nice and tidy when I know what we need to do next. I use it on my phone as well, all of our field supervisors and pumpers use it daily on their phones. It's a pretty solid product.
What type of results have you seen while working with GreaseBook?
Nicholas: Time saved is definitely the biggest factor. Organization - the amount of time we saved has been fantastic.
Do you think the GreaseBook app is cost-effective for small and mid-sized independent oil and gas operators? And describe Why?
Nicholas: I do think it is cost effective for, you know, the time saved in the field. Just the automatic upload to, you know, to the site and to their database and you know, we're all on the same page all the time. And, you know the amount of time it took to upload our production reports to the rear commission. Overall, I do think it's a cost-effective product.
