Real-time data from closed-loop drilling enhances offshore HSE
Real-time operations have historically been associated with data processing, but in the context of this article, it refers to the ability of onsite and offsite decision-makers to process information fast enough while drilling to keep up with the critical parameters of the circulating fluids system. Understanding those parameters, including formation pore pressure, fracture pressure, wellbore integrity, hydrocarbon content of annulus returns and abnormalities in mass flow in vs. out, is critical for safe, effective drilling, and successful isolation of potential flow zones during well construction.
