Integrated drilling software raises the bar for automation, simulation training in critical wells ///

Depleted fields and the decline of easy-to-tap reservoirs have pushed the E&P industry into plays, where drilling requires sophisticated and advanced technologies alongside greater expertise in preventing and managing well-control events. This trend is especially evident in extreme drilling environments and deepwater wells, where risk and the cost of failure are very high. To drill these wells efficiently, safely and economically, operators are adopting drilling practices, such as managed pressure drilling (MPD)—once reserved for niche applications—with greater frequency.
