IADC ART DCS Subcommittee to create rig sensor/instrument guidelines through new initiative

The IADC ART Drilling Control Systems (DCS) Subcommittee has kicked off the Rig Sensor Stewardship initiative, which aims to formulate guidelines to ensure sensor and instrument performance. This is an important project due to the massive amounts of data the industry is generating and the need for accurate data to digitalize and automate, said Assaad Mohanna, Vice Chairman of the IADC ART DCS Subcommittee. In this video with DC at the 2019 IADC Advanced Rig Technology Conference in Amsterdam, Mr Mohanna explains the initiative’s relevance and scope, as well as how the guidelines relate to the work done by the API Subcommittee 8 and the Operators Group for Data Quality. Watch the video for more information.

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.

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,” ...
