Session 14: Directional Drilling

The papers of this session show there are multiple opportunities to improve our systems, practices and performance ranging from understanding the rotary steerable market dynamics, verifying weight transfer models to using AI techniques for optimising ROP. Physics-based advisory systems enable improved control of steerable motors. By adopting a multi-faceted approach to refining our tools we can extend the reach of our wells and in so doing extend the life of existing infrastructure. Big data analytics allows us to assess the impact of tortuosity on well quality, but as two papers explain, calculation of tortuosity is anything but straightforward.

Session 15: Offshore Drilling

This session covers some of the latest developments observed in the offshore drilling space. From how Big Data solutions are being utilised to reduce well construction time and cost, how simulators improve the delivery of the actual wells being drilled and how the downturn has influenced maintenance to be more effective offshore. It also includes some interesting and innovative BOP centralisation system and rig modifications to adapt to operate two different types of wellheads simultaneously.

Session 16: Drilling Dynamics and Mechanics

A showcase on how advanced models and high quality data can be applied to understand and overcome typical oilfield drilling challenges. In this session you will hear from companies including ExxonMobil and Shell speak about how they are breaking down the classical boundaries between proprietary models and data using open source structures and creating a novel real-time drill advisor App store to improve accessibility and collaboration. The session will also cover how wired drill pipe and associated downhole sensors brought about significant performance benefits to the drilling campaign of a major E&P company and how machine learning was used by one of the industry's largest drilling services companies to characterise drillstring vibration allowing for more effective mitigation. The final presentation will show how the torque and drag reduction of axial oscillation tools can be predicted through advancements in modelling techniques.
