Improving drilling results with a real-time performance advisory system ///

Successful well construction improvement requires a tool that delivers timely advice to the driller, enabling performance improvement without distracting from other priorities. A new technology is now available that allows data to be turned into actions at the wellsite, improving overall well construction performance. The development team applied a rich understanding of existing wellsite workflows and incorporated technology, workplace ergonomics, and key attributes from gaming and telecommunications industries. The end result is an application that brings together several performance improvement analytical tools into one console, turning data into clear directions for the driller, and delivering immediate performance improvement. Field data from 10 wells throughout the world show how the system has been used to reduce well construction time by more than 20%.
