New GWD tool increases accuracy, reduces risk of drilling into adjacent wells

Gyrodata recently launched the Quest gyro-while-drilling (GWD) tool to help operators to mitigate the risk of collision in complex projects. Its solid-state sensor package means there is no impact from shock and vibration or magnetic interference, allowing for more accurate wellbore placement when drilling in challenging areas such as the Bakken, said Rob Shoup, Vice President Special Projects, Gyrodata, at the 2019 SPE Annual Technical Conference in Calgary, Canada, on 30 September. In this video with DC, Mr Shoup explains the potential for this tool to replace MWD, as well as initial field results. Watch the video for more information.

Startup company launches ‘machine doctor’ platform

An emerging company called Nanoprecise Sci Corp recently won the People’s Choice and Rising Star Awards at the SPE’s Startup Village competition. The company has developed an IOT-based condition monitoring platform that acts as a “machine doctor,” according to CEO Sunil Vedula. This platform, a combination of sensor and software, is able to measure multiple variables to identify if a problem exists, provide diagnostics, and determine time until failure. In this video with DC at the 2019 SPE Annual Technical Conference in Calgary, Canada, on 1 October, Mr Vedula discusses how the platform differentiates itself from competitors, as well as its value in applications like hydraulic fracturing.

Schlumberger launches at-bit steerable system for single-run horizontal wells

Schlumberger has introduced the NeoSteer at-bit steerable system (ABSS) at the 2019 SPE Annual Technical Conference in Calgary, Canada. In this video with DC on 30 September, Ziad Akkaoui, Drilling and Measurements Product Champion, Schlumberger, discusses the capabilities and recent successes of the system. The new system improves horizontal well drilling performance by providing high-dogleg capability and increased rate of penetration in the curve and the lateral. It leverages digital technologies by combining the latest trajectory control algorithms, and machine-learning and data analytics to provide improved planning and execution performance. “The NeoSteer family is a real game-changer for the industry. We have combined cutting structures with steering systems, enabled through digital technology, to drill steeper curves, longer and straighter laterals,” ...
