Drilling advances ///
We've been using computers and software in drilling applications for a long time. Examples include developing a directional well plan, transmitting LWD and directional information, and measuring parameters, such as pump pressure, hookload or flow rate.
However, most applications were developed and designed for stand-alone usage, rather in an integrated platform. Only recently, as information technology (IT) has become a part of our work day lives, have the applications come together, to drill wells faster and more efficiently.
