7 Drilling Systems Automation

Tuesday, 7 March
Mastrafjorden A
Technical Session
This session presents cutting edge papers on drilling systems automation. The papers span broadly; automation of sub-processes to the complete rig, field testing results of automated 3D cuttings monitoring, autonomous directional drilling and automated modelling of tripping. Case studies include the world’s first offshore implementation of rig automation; automated drilling optimization based on high fidelity models and fault detection of automated drilling systems.
