Neural networks are used to model the rate of penetration while drilling, thus giving greater control over real-time logging tools that often require the driller to slow drilling to a specific penetration rate.
Modifying drilling practices can avoid damage related to close annular tolerances.
The first kick-off with a rotary steerable system in a 26-in. hole successfully built angle in soft Gulf of Mexico sediment,in a deepwater well.
Metallographic examination of a drill pipe reveals that frictional forces produced while rotating drillstring induced sufficient heat to either locally temper the pipe or cause a phase transformation of the drill pipe material.
