About Halliburton

Halliburton Company is an American multinational corporation and the world’s second largest oil service company and responsible for most of the world’s largest fracking operations. The company helps customers maximize value throughout the lifecycle of the reservoir – from locating hydrocarbons and managing geological data, to drilling and formation evaluation, well construction and completion, and optimizing production throughout the life of the asset.

The Challenges

  • Halliburton needed an automation tool that would support various custom control and User Interface elements that were being slowly introduced to OpenWells, which existing automation tools could not handle.
  • The client wanted to release software faster to the end user customer and free up resources to do deeper manual testing on some of the OpenWells applications suite.

The Solutions

  • Engineered and built custom TestArchitect technology to support for these custom controls.
  • Ported over 1000+ WinRunner test scripts from previous automation implementations on OpenWells Core.suite.
  • Focused on provided both reusability, low levels of maintenance and high degrees of test case design transparency.
  • Once the basic set of technology was implemented into TestArchitect, LogiGear began the process of reviewing, porting and implementing tests inside
    TestArchitect.

The Results

For the Classic OpenWells application, LogiGear was able to automate 1,095 test cases and find 241 bugs through the use of that automation. Both in build acceptance testing and subsequent test runs outside of the BAT. For the Rocket Project, LogiGear was able to automate 904 test cases, which resulted in 81 bugs that would have not been found otherwise through manual testing.

Halliburton was tasked with providing more releases to its OpenWells customers. They had been using WinRunner test automation for many years, and found it increasingly hard to scale especially when coupled with its lack of technology support for new OpenWells technology implementations. LogiGear was asked to provide a toolset and test design method using LogiGear’s product TestArchitect

You and the team are putting in a lot of extra effort running these two full OpenWells Classic regressions tests along with keeping up on new Rocket Test Case development ... and Halliburton has taken notice and appreciates this. I especially appreciate the way you have stepped in and taken over leadership of your team and the extra hours and effort you are putting in. Keep up the good work.
