Drilling operations on DELFI

The DrillOps on-target well delivery solution ensures rigs operate at peak performance while implementing the digital drilling plan. It ensures operators accomplish consistency through autonomous drilling while securing progress toward their own business goals for drilling efficiency and more productive wells.

Use artificial-intelligence-driven automation to

Maximize your rate of penetration

Protect your drillstring integrity

Ensure consistency of repetitive drilling workflows

The DrillOps solution executes the digital drilling plan and ensures plan adherence, while delivering a goal-based automation methodology. It improves collaboration and coordination by directing the relevant information to the right people, at the right time, and always in the right context. Since workflows are curated centrally by the system, step-by-step activity plans are automatically generated for individual operations teams to keep all teams aligned, whether they are on the rig or in town.

The automation uses 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. With all well construction activities, from tripping to cementing, continually monitored and dynamically updated with the latest operational activity, your operations team is always up to date.

Automation enables reduced staffing levels on mechanized 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 and deliver automated reporting and drive learning and continuous improvement.

DrillOps is a solution for automating drilling operations, which is rig control system agnostic. Today DrillOps operates on the PRECISE automated drilling system, OnTrack integrated drilling controls system, the Digital Drilling Control System (DDCS), as well as rig control systems from NOV, HongHua, Drillmec and BOMCO.
