Self-drilling modules aim to help operators scale up operations, deliver consistency

To eliminate human error and reduce inefficiencies in drilling operations, AI Driller, an automation company that provides self-drilling applications, is gearing up to deliver a series of drilling modules, beginning with an ROP Module and Auto-Slider. The ROP Module, which is certified on National Oilwell Varco’s NOVOS platform, calculates the target weight on bit based on historical drilling data. The Auto-Slider, which is under field testing, applies autonomous directional drilling control for sliding with a conventional drilling motor based on inputs such as distance, inclination and release torque. Both technologies were presented at the IADC ART Spark Tank in December. In this video, DC speaks with CEO Marat Zaripov and COO Joel Dunn about the two modules and how they can help operators to scale up their operations while delivering more consistent results in places like the Permian Basin.
