  • High-speed telemetry drill pipe network optimizes drilling dynamics

    T. Ali, A. Srinivasan, S. Edwards and M. Hernandez

    This article discusses the successes and lessons learned during the first deployment of IntelliServ’s High-Speed Telemetry Drill Pipe Network with Inteq’s Rotary Closed Loop System (RCLS) AutoTrak and Triple Combo suite in North America. The article details the operational experience while drilling two lateral wells with an emphasis on drilling optimization and LWD processing with the ability to receive real-time, memory-quality data via a telemetry drill pipe network. In addition to the improvements in LWD technologies, there has been a remarkable development of downhole drilling dynamics and optimization tools. A telemetry drill pipe network that delivers real-time, memory-quality data at 57,000-bps transmission rates provides a step change in capability for the industry-dramatically changing the decisions that can be made in real time. The major lessons learned while drilling the lateral wells were: 1) real-time monitoring is a valuable tool for controlling and mitigating dynamic dysfunctions downhole, resulting in immediate ROP improvements.
