This Alteryx Industry Group was made to broaden the scope from different areas of the Energy sector. Energy Providers and Traders, Oil and Gas Explorers and Producers, Coal Producers, and Renewable and Clean Energy Providers, this is your place! No matter your department, we all share the common goal of organizing our data to drive decision making and empowering our organizations in the production and distribution of a vital product, Energy.
The challenge I submitted is out as an official Weekly Challenge.
Somehow I missed its release while travelling offshore...

Here is the Alteryx workflow for the IADC RAPID S53 connector demonstrated in our Q3 meeting.
For participating members in the IADC RAPID S53 Joint Industry Project, you can contact Mike Kucharski (email@example.com)
for authorization credentials for your data.
To use, all you need to do is copy and paste your Username, Password, and x-api-key provided by Mike into the green highlighted Text input tool.
NOTE: Remember this API is currently only in TEST, but the more Participant Members we get involved in the Test and providing feedback, the faster Mike and his great team can move this into production!)

The first Alteryx Energy User Group meeting was really fun, informative, and holds some really useful content.
Purpose and intros
We started with introductions of our purpose and leadership team. I’m really glad to be a part of this group and really believe such a diverse group of experiences, backgrounds, and professional roles is a tremendous strength
Guest Speaker: Mike Kucharski, IADC RAPID S53
Our guest speaker was Mike Kucharski from the International Association of Drilling Contractors (IADC), who spoke about the RAPID S53 Database. This database is the result of a Joint Industry Project where offshore drilling contractors, operators, and Subsea Blow Out Preventor Manufacturers are all participating in a common failure reporting database for subsea components according to American Petroleum Institute’s Standard S53, Wells Control Equipment Systems for Drilling Wells.
This is a fantastic example where competing companies and organizations are coming together with data in a common platform.
A new component of the IADC RAPID S53 platform is the release into test of an API for accessing this data. This API is currently in test, but hopefully will be released for real data soon.
Use Case 1: RAPID S53 API Connector, Randy Yoder
Using this API, we moved into our very first Use Case discussion.
I provided a walkthrough of the Alteryx Connector workflow developed for pulling data from the RAPID S53 Database, completing the Authenitcation, GET, parsing, and prep of the data using Alteryx.
This workflow will be made available here on our group page. All that is needed for you to pull your companies data is to insert your Username, Password, and x-api-key into the workflow in the highlighted green area.
Participating JIP members may contact Mike for the necessary credentials.
Use Case 2: API Connector for DrillingInfo, Roddy Harwell
Roddy went into a second use case where API can also be used for DrillingInfo. This was a quick but informative demonstration, and we know many of you use DrillingInfo for your varied analyses regularly.
A clean workflow for this connection will also be published on this page in the near future so Keep A Lookout!
Alteryx Community Walk-through and Alteryx Updates
Finally, we rolled into Alteryx updates and a tour of the community. Many of you are new to Alteryx, so check out the walk-through provided. The community has different areas for data blogs, podcasts, online training, certifications, and user groups.
The community is fantastic and one of the reasons we are working so hard to be a bigger part of it with this Energy focused Alteryx Industry Users Group!
Take care, stay safe, and we hope to see you all in December for our next meeting.

We are excited to be starting this new Industry User Group adventure and will be announcing more details of our first meeting very soon.
The idea of this group took hold with a few of us in the Houston area, so many of us are more generally tied to Oil and Gas. Furthering the idea while at Alteryx Inspire in Nashville, we recognize a broader scope of energy as an industry, the many methods and forms it takes and are looking forward to building a network and community where we can discuss topics around any form or source of energy, its distribution, impact, and responsibility.
So this should be really interesting and I am looking forward to expanding this network of Alteryx users to other areas of the energy industry.
The topics are endless, as are the many opportunities for discussion.
