Full Description

 

We have recently completed a drilling automation project revealing multiple key drilling issues needing optimization.  The automation measurement system reveals down-hole issues limiting the system’s performance and requiring countermeasures beyond what can be compensated for during normal drilling operations.  We will present a few examples and discuss potential next steps.
