DSATS LinkedIn– Link to the external SPE-DSATS LinkedIn company page. There you will find lots of information on upcoming community events, interesting articles, and open dialogs on all things drilling automation.

Drillbotics – 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). Alternately, teams may create a digital twin of a full-scale rig to model drilling autonomously.  Affiliated with SPE DSATS.

DSA Roadmap – (Drilling Systems Automation Roadmap) a cross-industry effort launched in June 2013 to provide insights to industry participants and non-industry participants regarding the adoption of advancements in drilling systems automation for both onshore and offshore oil and gas wells.

DSABOK – (Drilling Systems Automation Body of Knowledge) disseminate Drilling Systems Automation (DSA) knowledge directly or through linkages to various industry recognized websites.

OSDC – (Open Source Drilling Community) a coalition of industry and academic leaders to support an open-source effort for drilling, to encourage the reuse of ever-improving models and code. Chartered by SPE DSATS.

DDQUD – (Drilling Data Quality and Uncertainty Description) to increase the awareness and understanding in the drilling community on how to describe drilling data quality and uncertainty. Chartered by DSATS, DUPTS and WPTS.

D-WIS – (Drilling and Wells Interoperability Solutions) establish recommended practices and standards that enable interoperability between all components, equipment and systems used in oil and gas well construction – regardless of the type or provider.

SPE WPTS – (Wellbore Position Technical Section) to produce and maintain standards for the industry relating to wellbore survey accuracy.

ISCWSA – (Industry Steering Committee on Wellbore Survey Accuracy) produces, maintains, and publishes standards for the industry, promoting a collaborative understanding of issues associated with wellbore surveying. Affiliated with SPE WPTS.

SPE DUPTS – (Drilling Uncertainty Prediction Technical Section) to provide international multidisciplinary forum for technical discussion and a consensus-based arena related to drilling uncertainty & prediction, which focuses mainly on artificial intelligence, machine learning and data science solutions supporting drilling planning and execution challenges.

IADC ART DCS – (Advance Rig Technology committee – Data, Controls and Sensors subcommittee) provide information and guidelines to improve safety and reliability of the interfaces between human and machine, and between multiple control systems.
