The Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section (DSATS) is hosting a workshop in September that is generating excitement within the automation community. The “Sensors to Solutions” event will provide an in-depth look at the transformation of data into information for decisions and control.The workshop will feature an innovative format, with selected experts presenting actual use-cases on topics such as influx detection, well control, geosteering, borehole stability and condition-based monitoring. Collaborative and frank discussions follow the presentations, and investigate the readiness of data for automation within the industry. The goal is to examine a wide range of real-time drilling technologies, expose the technology gaps and opportunities, and indicate how the industry can best address these shortcomings.
Drilling systems automation is gaining considerable momentum within the industry. Operators, service companies, drilling contractors and equipment providers are all exploring cooperative technologies and are helping develop the framework for digital communications and data movement at the wellsite for decision and control tasks. This workshop is a significant step forward, with participants playing an important role in realizing drilling systems automation.
