Program 1 Drilling and Well Construction (Phase 1)
This is the page for R&D projects in the IO Center.
The objective of Program 1 Drilling and Well construction is to develop and test new technology, work processes and knowledge for more safe and efficient drilling and well completion. A new diagnostic drilling model tool which has been developed by SINTEF has been tested in realtime drilling in several oil companies. The tool was able to give early warning of several adverse conditions, such as stuck drill pipe, drillstring vibrations. This requires new work processes and competence for operators, which has been described. A so called "What-How-Why method" for enhanced teamwork capability has been developed and tested.
