Our purpose is to accelerate the development and implementation of systems automation in the well drilling industry by supporting initiatives that communicate the technology, recommend best practices, standardize nomenclature and help define the value of drilling systems automation.
Drillbotics® is an international competition for universities to design and build a small drilling rig that uses sensors and control algorithms to autonomously drill a rock sample provided by SPE’s Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section (DSATS).
Recently, teams may choose to model a full scale drilling rig. 2023-2024 marks the tenth competition for the title of Drillbotics®
A standardized approach to well planning data exchange
minimize the amount of change (ideally zero) for users to digitize and share drilling programs
fast track concepts that will eventually lead to standards but not focus on standard writing
encourage users to include much more rigourous data into a drilling program
