New onsite rig crew training service provides well control overview in two hours

A new mobile crew training unit will soon allow Wild Well Control to extend its well control training from the classroom to the rigsite. The onsite rig crew training service was developed at the request of companies that wanted to allow certain rig crew members who don’t receive frequent opportunities to attend classroom training – such as derrickhands, motor hands and floor hands – to understand the basics of well control. The training reviews the signs of well kicks, critical decision-making skills, proper drilling techniques and proper shut-in procedures. In this video from the 2018 SPE Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition, held 24-26 September in Dallas, Texas, DC Editor/Publisher Mike Killalea speaks with Steve L. Richert, Manager, WCT Instructor & ...

Drilling optimization platform makes recommendations based on real-time well-site data

Over the past year, Pason Systems and ExxonMobil have been testing a real-time, well-site based software platform for drilling optimization. The system produces performance maps and makes recommendations to the driller based on input from surface sensors. In this video from the 2017 SPE/IADC Drilling Conference in The Hague, The Netherlands, on 14 March, Lars Olesen, Vice President of Product Management for Pason Systems, explains some of the platform’s capabilities and outlines results from deployments in unconventional plays. For more information about this system, please see SPE/IADC 184615, “A Real-Time Well-Site Based Surveillance and Optimization Platform for Drilling: Technology, Basic Workflows and Field Results.”
