Riaz has worked in the Oil & Gas Industry for 17 years, mainly split between Schlumberger and BP. He has held roles in drilling engineering & operations, run real-time operations monitoring centers and is currently the team lead for BP’s Wells Technology group, where he is working to develop and implement strategies for various drilling technologies, and in particular, drilling automation. He is passionate about the role that analytics and automation will play in drilling, and is aggressively championing the adoption of these both within BP and in industry through his work with the SPE Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section (DSATS). Riaz considers himself an early adopter of technology, but truly believes that such technology must add real value, and so does not yet own an Echo, Siri or other voice activated home automation system!

Full Description

The application of automated technologies to the process of well construction is emerging as a key lever to improve the overall efficiency of drilling performance. Several recent applications have demonstrated that the technology maturity is no longer the limiting factor in accelerating the uptake and realizing the benefits that automation can bring to drilling. The presentation describes a collaborative effort between an operator, a drilling contractor and a service company on the application of a novel drilling automation system to deliver drilling parameter control to a major drilling operation.
