The customer's end goal—always—is to maximize the return from their assets. In doing so, operators need to drill the wellbore as efficiently, reliably, and safely as possible. Yet, as performance improvements are delivered, the drilling objectives and the challenges that have to be overcome to meet those objectives continue to increase in complexity. Economic constraints can also become more challenging, which drives greater innovation in order to achieve new performance goals, which leads to even greater challenges.
