Drilling

The papers that I included this month demonstrate real measurable efficiency gains and advantages, often processing volumes of data that previously could not be managed by conventional means. Performance measurement and drilling automation are two such examples, and the papers referenced this month, both as synopses and listed for further reading, fall into this categ…
This paper presents a physics-based approach to predict sand production for various reservoir and completion types, explored through a case study of recent production wells in a sandstone reservoir development.
This paper presents an automated directional-drilling process executed on a commercial well in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea, where a next-generation intelligent rotary steerable system completed a well section in a single run.
