23 How Modern Data Collection Is Influencing Drill Bits

Thursday, 9 March
Lysefjorden A
Technical Session
While the drilling industry has changed immensely over the years, the overall goal of the drill bit has remained constant. How can we drill farther and faster? With the update to the IADC dull grading and the vast improvement in the ability to capture data comes the need to process, store and make better informed decisions relating to drill bits. This session will highlight some of the recent advancements in data capture pertaining to drill bits.
