An Oil and Gas Operators Quick Guide to IronSight for Water Use Reporting

Leveraging software to improve the accuracy, speed, and simplicity of water use reporting for oil and gas operations.

In the rapidly evolving regulatory landscape of oil and gas operations, managing and reporting on water use is becoming an increasingly important task. Beyond just meeting regulatory demands, there's a growing recognition among operators of the need to improve water stewardship – a commitment to more sustainable and efficient use of both fresh and produced water. This shift is especially challenging for those still relying on manually intensive, paper-based administration.

IronSight offers a streamlined solution to this dual challenge of compliance and stewardship. Here’s a quick overview of how IronSight can level-up your approach to documenting and reporting water use, while simultaneously enhancing the efficiency of your water logistics.

To easily and accurately report monthly on items like vehicle miles traveled, water type, pick-up and drop off locations, and water use, you’ll first need a way to capture that data efficiently.

With IronSight every fluid transfer job contains these exact details, capturing and verifying data like:

  • Distances traveled
  • Routes taken
  • Water type, volumes, and other details
  • Pick-up and drop-off locations
  • Billing and cost center data
  • Custom fields (configured to capture any additional data you need)
