Andreas Sadlier is the Product Manager at Baker Hughes for Remote Drilling Services responsible for bringing innovative remote visualization and interpretation services into the marketplace.  He joined Baker Hughes in 2007 with the marketing services group in drill bit systems where he led their technical software team to develop and support various marketing intelligence systems.  There he also led much of the technology development for the launch of the weekly Baker Hughes Rig Count geographic information systems (GIS) map.  More recently, he worked in the US Gulf of Mexico region to bring the remote service center online and launch the real-time remote pressure management service.  Prior to joining Baker Hughes, he worked as a senior technology consultant for a business and data solutions provider delivering custom software platforms to customers in their oil and gas business segment.


 



Sadlier holds a BS degree in mechanical engineering from Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College as well as an MBA in from Sam Houston State University.  He is a member of SPE and the Product Development and Management Association (PDMA).  He is also a member of the SPE Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section (DSATS) and has coauthored and presented a number of pieces on remote services and drilling automation topics.


Full Description
Remote operations centers are often considered basic data monitoring facilities or a means to provide remote technical support, usually after a problem has occurred.  However, with increased drilling costs, shortage of available expertise, and the safety related issues with personnel at the wellsite, providing interpretation and advisory services remotely has received greater interest and consideration.
 
Remote centers enable scare subject matter experts (SMEs) to work on multiple, geographically dispersed wellsite operations concurrently without having to be on location.  They also facilitate the ability for multiple experts to assemble quickly and collaborate to solve complex challenges on a single operation without adding the HSE risk of additional personnel at the wellsite.
 
However, the increased volume of information available from technologies like wired-pipe, combined with the shortage of experienced SMEs to quickly interpret datasets, create new challenges.  Focusing the attention of personnel on the most important datasets to make accurate and timely decisions requires new techniques for remote operations centers.  How can we preserve wellsite context, facilitate collaboration and common understanding, and deliver expert advice quickly and consistently? 
 
This presentation outlines capabilities such as data aggregation, remote visualization, and advanced decision support needed to ensure successful remote service delivery.  Other industries have used predictive analytics, decision modeling, and pattern recognition to detect credit card fraud, estimate risk and event probability for actuaries, optimize marketing campaigns, or predict equipment failures.  They achieve this by coupling historical data patterns, predictive models, and real-time data streams using complex event-processing technologies.  Enhanced decision-making capabilities will enable remote drilling operations centers to provide the best advice faster and more consistently to reduce unplanned events, minimize risk, and optimize drilling efficiency.
