Drilling Optimization

 

Maintaining the integrity of the drillstring, managing the hydraulic pressures, ensuring effective hole cleaning and determining the pressure limits of the open hole in order to maintain wellbore integrity are crucial aspects of drilling a wellbore.

The ADT® optimization service focuses on these aspects of drilling to deliver improved drilling performance. Experienced personnel use all available measurements, specialized tools, techniques and software to establish the exact conditions at any point in the drilling process. With this knowledge they optimize drilling rates, improve operational efficiency, and minimize the impact of unplanned events. Specialists also determine the root cause of non-productive time events and provide solutions to prevent their reoccurrence.
