World Oil Webcast - Beyond Automation in Well Construction
Automate increases consistency
The DrillOps solution adopts a goal-based automation methodology, using powerful data analysis and learning systems to assist and optimize every task, from setting ROP to drilling a stand. Users choose from a preset menu of automatable drilling tasks, and using data analysis and models, share a plan to achieve the specified goal, taking any measurements required to calibrate itself. Operators have the flexibility to modify and replan activities dynamically, based on a live appraisal of equipment, personnel, and supplies.
Automation enables reduced staffing levels on mechanised rigs and delivers unparalleled consistency of repetitive tasks, helping you reach your technical limit on every well.
Alert and escalate procedures are built directly into the DrillOps solution—making it easier to resolve any potential conflicts and administer corrective action. Everything that happens is automatically documented within the digital well file to streamline reporting and drive continuous improvement.
Advise—optimize drilling performance
The DrillOps solution monitors and captures a broad range of operational data to support operators during drilling with real-time advice and coaching to improve decision-making and reduce risk. Intelligent advisory systems guide crews to stay within operating windows and safety thresholds. Predictive analytics continuously identify drilling dysfunctions, alerting personnel before pre-defined limits are due to be exceeded to reduce Non-Productive Time (NPT).
Progress is continually compared with targets defined in the drilling plan across a range of criteria, including operating costs and other KPIs, to deliver a live picture of performance. Any deviations from the plan are recorded in the digital well file, alongside all of the relevant operational data. By capturing the full operational context across multiple domains, the DrillOps solution increases the value of reporting and post-job analysis to improve every subsequent well.
