The key components of the Drilling and Well Construction program are: Integrated drilling simulator with virtual well bore and visualization; Real time automated interpretation, diagnostics and decision support; Utilization of increased bandwidth from borehole; New work processes, training simulator and experience transfer.
- Integrated drilling Simulator with 3D Visualization shall be demonstrated and tested in order to show value creation and increased safety.
- Well stability and pore pressure models should be integrated into the real time environment
- Improved drilling procedures to enhance data quality and improve drilling performance

The main goal is to hasten the introduction of wired drillpipe into the drilling industry. We have investigated the potential for improved drilling, well control, and geo-steering. The next phase will look at the bottlenecks that might delay or impede improvements.
The project will observe an upcoming wired drillpipe well in the North Sea. Focus will be three-fold:
