Session 14: Artificial Intelligence and Data Science

From creating simple efficiencies to advanced real time deep learning models, the use of machine learning to impact operations is the next step in sustained progress. Artificial Intelligence is now moving from the labs into the daily planning and operations. In this session, we will review what has been done in the labs, in the field and what is possible as we progress the science.

Session 16: Drilling Dynamics II

This session highlights new drill bit technology vetted through lab experiments as well as methods for analyzing and interpreting bit performance in the field. Topics include novel bit features which have shown positive results in terms of reducing vibrations and improving efficiency. A holistic examination of bits and reamers is also included, from which guidelines were created to help reduce dull severity, improve hole opening efficiency, and reduce overall cost.

Session 17: Automation of the Directional Drilling Process

As the demand for directional wells grows, the technology has also progressed, with most recent developments seeking to automate the directional drilling process. Automation brings with it many potential benefits, reduced wellbore tortuosity, optimized ROPs, downhole equipment preservation and the related de-risking of the wellsite via a reduction in personnel to name but a few. The papers presented in this session all relate to this goal of automation, and cover topics including remote control of operations, advisory systems to automate decision making, and closed-loop automation of the trajectory and target steering process downhole. Due to the anticipated interest in this topic, this session will depart from the norm for technical paper sessions at this conference and ask each of the six presenters to cover the contents of their paper in an uninterrupted series of 15-minute presentations, saving questions for a one-hour panel discussion featuring all six authors and moderated by the session chairs. This will be a new, exciting and dynamic way for the audience to gain a deeper insight into the technologies on offer.
