Drilling systems automation needs to deliver better wells. Better wells are wells that provide lower cost and higher value throughout their lifecycle. There are many factors that need to be balanced when drilling through the reservoir section including more reservoir, less impairment, less porpoising, lower tortuosity and more. Automated systems drilling reservoirs will need to maximize value and minimize life cycle cost impact from multiple factors in real time.
Can we define what better wells are and can we program automation agents to deliver them?
