18 Digital Transformation

Wednesday, 8 March
Technical Session
There is a continuous effort in our industry to conduct safe, sober and efficient drilling operations. The digitalisation of information, processes and technologies participate to this objective and paves the way for fully autonomous systems and operations. With significant contributions, this session addresses this challenge in dealing with the automated detection of anomalies, failures, risks and the automated collection, reporting and analysis of data from operations and equipment. The technical advances presented contribute to the enforcement of better standards, the reduction of risks and NPT, and the increase in the overall drilling performance.
