Conventional drilling optimization knowledge tapped to help NASA access water on the Moon

Researchers at the Colorado School of Mines believe the reliability of lunar exploration missions can be improved with comprehensive, real-time drilling optimization algorithms. Similar to what are used in the oil and gas drilling industry, these algorithms rely on real-time drilling response mechanisms to adjust various control parameters, ensuring closed-loop automated drilling from the lunar surfaces.

To adopt automated drilling systems at scale, industry will need to overcome fragmentation, build trust

The term “digital transformation” has long been a buzzword within the oil and gas industry. Only in recent years has that “buzz” finally started to translate into true change. Today, automation discussions are slowing pivoting toward how to implement those changes at scale, but industry fragmentation is hurting that effort.
