Machine learning agent significantly reduces drilling time on ultra-deepwater exploration well

Location Gabon, West Africa Ultra deepwater Challenge Show that real-time rate of penetration (ROP) optimization can signifi cantly contribute to improving ROP, decreasing drilling time and reducing costs, even when an auto driller is used. Solution The agent was used by RTO engineers to provide the rig crew with real-time drilling parameter recommendations for optimizing…

Digitalized Operation Procedures Provide Rig Automation System With Context To Manage Longer And Broader Sequences Of Activities

SPE-208767-MS: Pourya Farmanbar, Anne Siw Berge, Olav Revheim, Alexander Chekushev, Serafima Schaefer, Exebenus. 

Abstracts: The exact definition of all types of activities in well construction, from spud to completion, is an area of great challenges for an automation system to function successfully in. In an operation plan, these activities can be categorized into three subgroups: standard and repetitive sub-activities, customized sub-activities, and manual sub-activities. A digitalized detailed operation procedure (DOP) provides the appropriate context by defining the machine-readable version of these activities.
