eDrilling to work on improved real-time well data

Offshore staff

STAVANGER, Norway – The Research Council of Norway has given eDrilling funds as part of the Demo 2000 petroleum program.

eDrilling will use the money to develop a drilling window real-time predictor, providing continuous prediction of pore pressure and well stability.

The main aim of the project is to provide the drill crew with continuously updated real-time well information to support their decision making by reducing the uncertainty in the mud weight window.

Currently, drilling teams experience large uncertainties in prediction of pore pressure and wellbore stability, with extensive unproductive time due to unexpected events such as stuck pipe, mud losses, and well control events.

According to eDrilling, current prediction tools are not automatically updated with real-time input, so drilling-related decisions must be taken as problems occur, entailing substantial configuration, pre-studies, and follow-up during operations.
