Sep. 1 - Sep. 3, 2015




Sensors are the primary data source for drilling process   control and decision making.    Optimization of the drilling process and drilling systems automation   require consistent reliable quality data.    Inadequacies in the data are becoming apparent as these applications   become more prevalent. Drilling performance enhancements demand the   development and deployment of automated systems that use data intensive   techniques, such as, adaptive self-learning, physics-based, and data-driven   modeling to compute solutions.  The   challenges are the aggregation, distribution, enrichment, management, and   visualization of the resultant data.

Individual case studies within each session will be correlated   to the International Standard ISA-95, from the International Society of   Automation, to develop an automated interface between the enterprise and   control systems.  This workshop will   bring together operators, drilling data solution experts, as well as service   company and drilling contractor personnel to learn and discuss progress in   resolving sensor to solution issues.      

Workshop Guidelines

Workshops   maximize the exchange of ideas among attendees and presenters through brief   technical presentations followed by extended Q&A periods. Focused topics   attract an informed audience eager to discuss issues critical to advancing   both technology and best practices.          Many of the   presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering   achievements and lessons learned. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no   proceedings are published and members of the press are not invited to attend.


Proceedings   from the workshop will not be published; therefore, formal papers and handouts   are not requested of speakers or panel members. A URL containing released   copies of the workshop presentations will be available to attendees following   the workshop.


In remaining   consistent with workshop objectives and SPE guidelines, commercialism in   presentations will not be permitted.  Company logos should be used only   to indicate the affiliation of the presenter(s).

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

Attendees will receive 2 CEUs.

One CEU   equals 10 contact hours of participation. CEUs will be awarded through SPE   Professional Development for participation and completion of SPE workshop. A   permanent record of a participant’s involvement and awarding of CEUs will be   maintained by SPE.
