This question is really for people who work in O&G industry, but I don't know where to post for the biggest audience:
A friend asked me to post this:

Can you ask on City-Data some Oil and Gas industry people, if they know of a software or application that captures data on a timeline by days, hours and even minutes. It would be great if the software had the capability to show the timeline in days but if you wanted to focus on a particular day it would show you data by hour and minute. This data is related to oil and gas measurements that are recorded in 10 second intervals.
I have the necessary data that I need to track. I am looking for a software or application that reports the data in a timeline format and gives me the ability to track the data in days and minutes.
E.g. I may want to track oil flow in 10 second intervals but I also want to track the cost if rig crew per day.


Anyone came across such application or actually work with it?
Thank you!!

What format is the data in? How is it being collected?

This all sounds pretty specialized and like it's probably going to require at least a little work.

^^^ All the data is in a spread sheet format.
Little work sounds great vs mile long spreadsheets

The phrase is "polling" and it is an extremely common routine, used to collect and sort data from everything from river levels to industrial processes. There are any number of ways to gather and list the data, and any number of ways to access and interpret it or use it to trigger events. For the beginner, spreadsheets work. For someone a little more sophisticated a database would be the way to go. For someone wanting complete customization, flat files and custom programming would do the trick.

Chances are there is an existing program or database front end that will do what is requested. That would be cheapest and fastest solution. In programming, the first stage would be system analysis, where the raw data and format are noted and the user forced to sit down and state EXACTLY what is wanted as the end reports and manipulation, even before a single line of code is written. The above post doesn't even come close to describing that.

Similar to this that tracks in as low as 10 second intervals?:

It looks like the OP already has the data, what he's asking for is basic charting/graphing of the data. Any spreadsheet program can do that, I could whip up something custom in a day or so.

Complexity may arise in updating the data and getting into the system on a regular basis, how depends on what resources are available and how the data is collected.

There's nothing I can think of off the shelf that would 'just do it', a spreadsheet is as close as you'd get to that but it'll require some level of skill.
