How Leveraging AI Can Help You Cut Your Non-Productive Drilling Time

Much of the “unstructured” data collected for daily drilling reports can be made available via natural language processing (NLP) and put to use for analyzing/predicting the causes of non-productive time (NPT). This could mean big savings in the cost of drilling operations!... Read more »

How Data Analytics Can Help Identify Root Causes of Non-Productive Time (NPT)

A new way to find root causes of non-productive time (NPT) is to combine machine-learning algorithms with natural language processing (NPL). By taking early action to correct the actual cause of NPT, revenues will naturally be driven up... Read more »

Automation Technologies

Advances in Automation Technologies

These two posters show the benefits of automation techniques in different applications: the first details how to control the probabilistic wellbore trajectory while drilling; the second focusses on how to model and simulate directional drilling using rotary steerable systems (RSS). View here: "Probabilistic Wellbore Trajectory Control for Drilling Automation" and "Steering the Tool Towards Drilling Automation: Modeling and Simulation for RSS".

LIFE 2017 Digital Twin

Advances in Real-time Technologies

These two posters show the benefits of real-time techniques in different applications: how to evaluate gaseous leak detection via metamodeling in real-time is covered in the first; the second deals with how to prevent stuck drillpipe through real-time monitoring. View here "Developing Metamodeling for Real-Time Evaluation of Gaseous Leak Dispersion" and "Drillpipe Stuck Prediction in Real-Time Drilling Monitoring".
