ME – Development.
What we set out to achieve
An operator in ME tasked Aurora to deploy its novel AWOS software, on a development project, to ensure that a like for like comparison could be carried out whilst incorporating a new technology within the drilling system.
What we did
Aurora carried out real time drilling efficiency analysis using their AWOS software on behalf of their client during a new technology test. AWOS was utilised to evaluate the benefit and performance capabilities of a new technology in a series of development wells.
The drilling system, incorporating the new technology, drilled a 4601ft interval in one run that mirrored previous offset development wells building inclination from 12 degrees up to over 50 degrees.
Driving improved performance
|Limited divergence in AWOS Energy IN versus Efficiency OUT plots show vibration free operating environment compared to offset wells without new BHA technology.
|All directional objectives achieved.
|Zero to low severity vibration levels throughout, no MWD / LWD failures – no extra trip time incurred.
|9 5/8″ casing run with no obstruction or hold up’s recorded, substantial rig time savings.
