The less frequent a process is measured, attempting to optimize it becomes less effective. We cannot control what we cannot measure. With continuously circulating mud, shortcomings of measuring density only once per hour and running a retort only once per day are obvious. With our industry-first automatic retort combined with the most advanced density sensor, further significant efficiency gains and cost savings are now achievable. Now the objective is to gain full control of the drilling fluid management process using mass balance becomes an effective means to reduce NPT and ILT
Now that there is real time density, flow rate, rheology and fluid characterization available at the rig, the data will be used to drive efficiencies in the drilling process using unique & novel software applications:
Mass Balance Algorithms:
24/7 Real Time Monitoring and Data Analysis in an RTOC (RT Ops Center) setting to support/advise the decision makers by detecting early symptoms for early intervention and mitigation to drill the well safely to TD with least cost per foot.
The oil drilling industry is producing a huge amount of data. Often the problem for a drilling engineer is combining all relevant data or finding the right clue to come up with a usable information for quick and reliable decisions 24/7. This constitutes a high workload for the drilling engineer who is handling multiple wells.
Smart software package Artificial Intelligence technology under the hood is still considered in its infancy in the drilling industry and despite claims of automating the monitoring process it still needs an experienced human intervention in validating the outputs.
Effective optimization and loss prevention require not only principle knowledge, but also experience and skill. This is where our real time monitoring engineers with typical > decade of drilling optimization and years of experience in the use of emerging technologies for drilling come in.
People and Systems involved:
With high-end gas laboratory gas sample analyzers becoming field-ruggedized and being successfully introduced at rigsites, one very important area is being overlooked – Gas Sample Extraction. Even with more recent (20+ yrs ago) improvements to the 70+ yrs old gas trap technology, the biggest limitation remains unaddressed by the majority of drilling project equipped with high-end gas analysis equipment – improving mud sampling and gas extraction environment to deliver near-laboratory quality gas sample. See our PFI (constant volume refresh, constant temperature gas extraction system) alongside other products geared towards improving formation evaluation such as our fast FID Gas Chromatograph.
