Integrated well construction
DrillPlan in the DELFI cognitive E&P environment forms part of a fully integrated well construction solution, which transforms the planning and execution performance, efficiency, and quality of every well drilled.
DrillPlan in the DELFI environment, unites data, technology, science, and expertise from Schlumberger and the industry. The introduction of enhanced domain capabilities boosted by digital technologies and further integration with Microsoft Office 365 will lead to higher levels of collaboration and productivity among teams and stakeholders, across E&P disciplines.
A radical new way of working
The digital well construction planning solution ensures planning is completed, honoring the highest standards in the most efficient way through project management, in-built engines, concurrent collaborative engineering, and automated design validation. This radical new way of working gives quicker and better quality drilling programs. The iterative workflow means plans improve as new data are added, and future programs can learn from prior experience.
The fully integrated well construction solution will be driving the Schlumberger Rig of the Future, which through knowledge capture, mechanization, and automation will deliver a further leap in performance, making sure that each well is better than the last.
Efficiency gains and quality impact
The solution has demonstrated efficiency gains and quality impact, generating hundreds of plans through more than a year of testing in various locations. In West Texas and Canada, oil and gas companies extensively evaluated the solution for months, making it fit their well construction process. DrillPlan proved to be comprehensive and powerful to deliver a well planning program in days rather than weeks. The companies acknowledged the ease of access—it takes only a few hours for engineers to use it—as well as its ability to enable stronger collaborative work among team members and departments.
DrillPlan will be available in North America land operations from Q4 2017, with continuous development of functionalities that will meet the needs of the global development and exploration market in 2018 and beyond.
