New drilling automation platform optimizes steering, aids real-time decisions

A new drilling automation platform is aiding experts to make real-time drilling decisions to enable more accurate well placement, good borehole quality, optimum rate of penetration and consistency. Umut Zalluhoglu, R&D Engineering Advisor with Halliburton, spoke at the IADC Drilling Engineers Committee Q2 Technology Forum in Houston on 26 June about the customizable platform, which can be used to define optimal steering performance and automatically track the well plan. It also enables remote-controlled simultaneous execution of multiple drilling operations and reduces human-induced variance in drilling performance. In this video with DC, Mr Zalluhoglu explains the platform’s two modes of operation and the value that has been achieved.
