Webtech Wireless Announces "Oil Well Waiting" Hours of Service (HOS) for the Oil and Gas Sector
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Dec 13, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Webtech Wireless Inc. (TSX: WEW), a leading provider of vehicle
fleet location-based services (LBS) and telematics technology, today
announces that it now offers Hours of Service Oil (HOS) Well Waiting
capability that enables fleets in the Oil and Gas sector greater
flexibility tracking HOS. This latest Oil and Gas feature is
available on the Company's MDT 3100 In-Cab solution.
With Oil Well Waiting, drivers can track time waiting at a well site
without it counting against their HOS time limit. This capability
ensures fleets can remain competitive while complying with FMCSA HOS
regulations. "This feature is designed with drivers in mind. It's
easy to use and the interface and workflow are simple, allowing for
quick training, simple implementation, and immediate cost savings,"
said Ernie Chatham, Vice President, Quadrant Products and Services at
Oil Well Waiting, an oilfield exception, is designed specifically to
comply with the US Oil and Gas rule, Oil Well Servicing Rule 395.1d
section 2, which makes the provision that "on-duty time shall not
include waiting time at a natural gas or oil well site."
"Previously, Oil and Gas fleet operators who needed an exemption for
well waiting could only use paper logs. With this new capability, our
award-winning GPS fleet tracking solution is not only more appealing
but offers an even more compelling ROI to a greater segment of the
Oil and Gas market," said Scott Edmonds, President and CEO of Webtech
