Halliburton debuts eRedBook free smartphone app
HOUSTON – Halliburton announced the launch of its eRedBook Mobile application, bringing a widely used mathematical tool in the oil and gas industry to two popular technology platforms. The free smartphone application is available for Apple and Android devices in both the Apple iTunes store and Google Play. It currently provides pumping and displacement volumes and API standards for tubing/casing dimensions and strengths.
This marks the latest major advancement for this engineering resource since Halliburton’s RedBook reference tool was created more than 80 years ago.
In 1929, Erle P. Halliburton commissioned a young petroleum engineering student named W. D. “Bill” Owsley to begin scientific investigation into the mechanical performance of different cement blends. That body of work was first published as the Cementing Tables in Halliburton’s magazine, “The Cementer.” Those tables grew to include tubular data and were eventually published in 1931 as the RedBook pocket-sized field-reference book. For decades, the industry used the RedBook reference as an industry standard. Currently, each month, an average of 1,000 copies of the RedBook reference are distributed globally, in addition to 1,000 downloads of eRedBook software, a computer-based version.
The eRedBook Mobile application is available for download at:
