Gazpromneft and eDrilling shared the initial results from their Drilling Management Center at the SPE/IADC International Drilling Conference and Exhibition in Galvestion, USA this week.  Title of presentation was “Optimizing Drilling Wells and Increasing the Operation Efficiency Using Digital Twin Technology”.  Gazpromneft’s Drilling Management Center (DMC) has utilized eDrilling software to monitor and control drilling operations.  This has contributed to increased efficiency and safety.

Since introduction of the Drilling Management Center, NPT has been reduced by 8-10 percent, and drilling rate has been improved by 20%.  eDrilling is one of several new technology vendors used and qualified in the DMC.  Two examples:

i) Safer tripping and proper ECD management with less surge & swab incidents, as well as borehole stability issues have been achieved, and

ii) digital twin control of wellbore friction and back-reaming has helped to prevent pack-off situations

eDrilling is a world leading supplier of AI, machine learning, and predictive analytics solutions to the oil and gas industry. We work closely with E&P companies, operators, and service companies to help them save cost, improve safety, and increase efficiency of drilling operations.

Our mission is to help energy professionals at E&P companies, operators and service companies reach their goals by providing drilling and well performance solutions needed to better plan, prepare for, perform and evaluate drilling operations.

Our vision dates back to the late 1980s, when we wanted to create a downhole GPS, or Google Maps if you like, for drilling operations. Convinced artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies would represent a quantum leap in well construction, we set forth what has become a paradigm shift in the oil and gas industry. For over 25 years, leading E&P companies, service companies, and drilling contractors, have leveraged the power of these technologies to improve drilling performance, onshore and offshore, deep water and shallow water, complex wells and factory drilling. Globally.

Firstly, our paper (presented by Maryam) has been chosen as one of the highlights at this year’s SPE/IADC Drilling Conference. She will talk about how our AI technologies are effectively used to derive conclusions (i.e. diagnosis or a prediction), avoiding incidents and non-productive time and maximize value of drilling operations

Furthermore, we are sponsoring the DSATS/IADC Art Symposium: Digital Twin for Drilling – Connecting the Physical and  Digital World.  It takes place on Monday, March 4 at 13:00 to 17:00.

Finally, you can find Kenza and Maryam at the exhibition all week, booth #65.  See you there.

A Digital Twin is the digital representation of your actual well. Used in preparation it enables you to pre-drill your well. Used in real-time operation it enables you to do forward simulations and what-if simulations to detect mismatch and give input to change the drilling plan – to avoid problems, see and detect operational mismatches, and change parameters for optimal drilling (drilling the perfect well).


MOL is preparing for upcoming exploration, by drilling well 3/7-11 S Otta/Vinstra (in PL 539) in wellSim using digital twin prior to operations.

Rowan Viking is contracted for the well, located in the southern part of the North Sea, close to the Harald Vest field on the Danish side, and 45 km east of the Valhall- and Ekofisk fields.  MOL plan to drill the main bore for Vinstra, followed by a sidetrack to shallower formation Otta.

MOL owns 80% of the field, and Lundin 20%.  Drilling is planned to start April 1st.

We are expanding rapidly, and we are looking for great people to join our team in Singapore.  We are looking for people who are passionate about how new technology can improve how people and organizations live and work.  eDrilling is a software company, that through artificial intelligence, machine learning, predictive analytics, and digital twin technologies, represent a paradigm shift in well construction and drilling operations in the energy industry.

Interested?  Send an email to info@edrilling.no, with a link to your LinkedIn page.  We would love to hear from you.

On Wednesday November 21, we will arrange a webinar titled “Pre-drill your well to ensure hazard and NPT free, and optimized, drilling operations”

Attend this webinar to learn more about how you, utilizing eDrilling’s digital twin, can ensure safe, effective and efficient well delivery for any planned well by acquiring skills and experience on the specific well prior to operations.

The webinar is for everyone interested in optimal preparations for drilling operations (drilling superintendents, drilling supervisors, training/ competence-, and HSE professionals)

If you are interested in joining our 30 minute webinar on November 21, please register here.

Please note that due to time zone variations, there are two webinars scheduled for Wednesday, November 21. Please choose the one most fitting with your schedule and time zone. If you cannot attend either of the two webinars, but are still interested in learning more about how to take training and preparation for drilling operations to a whole new level, please contact us by simply sending an email to info@edrilling.no

 

 

We understand clearly the industry’s need to improve safety margins and reduce and rid themselves of risk, not to talk about the need to drastically reduce well planning time.

At the same time, we understand the investment you have done over the years (time, money, competence, etc.) in your legacy planning solutions, and the pain (cost, competence, workforce, etc) of replacing it with software that can help you with the above.

By offering our technologies as microservices, you now have a solution. eDrilling’s wellPlanner offer instant modernization of your legacy well planning and well design systems, while at the same time extending the value of your existing investments.

Attend this webinar to learn more about how to balance your need for continuity and cost savings with the objective of implementing a well planning solution that really enhances drilling operation efficiency

If you are interested in joining our 30 minute webinar on October 24, please register here.

The webinar is for everyone interested in quicker and better quality drilling programs (well engineering managers, well/drilling engineers, etc.), and saving time and cost on well planning (CIOs, CTOs, everybody)
