Drakewell's Story

Drakewell was developed and spun out from a custom software development company called Phase 2 in Oklahoma. Founded in 1998, Phase 2 has repeatedly been recognized as an innovator and technology leader, bringing best-of-breed software tools to each unique situation. Drakewell was built, then rebuilt from scratch twice to become the platform it is today. Over 50 years of combined expertise has gone into creating Drakewell with drillers and for drillers. Our top-tier software engineering team has built practical and innovative software for numerous parts of the oil and gas value stream. Multiple iterations over nearly 10 years have made Drakewell the best operations software in the industry.
