03 Innovating Drilling Into Extreme Environments

Session Chairpersons:

John P. de Wardt, DE WARDT & CO.; Roy Marker, Statoil ASA

Now is the time for the energy industry to embrace industrial internet solutions, hear an overview of megatrends and how this technology application is evolving in oil and gas from a dedicated “Industrial Internet of Things” venture capital manager. Simulation, forecasting and visualization of critical wellbore effects reduced risks in a very challenging HTHP well. Understand how an improvement in drilling performance, well placement and reservoir section length was achieved from the real time availability of memory quality formation evaluation and drilling data through the high speed transfer of critical data between downhole and surface. Extraterrestrial exploration in 3D enabled by subsurface access with emphasis on the Moon, Venus, Mars, and Europa with an overview of future missions that require drilling systems that emphasize automation and system reliability presented by a leading developer of planetary drilling systems.
