    NOV Automation

    Fully automated closed-loop drilling


    The future of well construction built on a history of success


    NOV Automation combines controls, drilling systems, and software applications from our eVolve™ Optimization Service and NOV Operating System (NOVOS™) to deliver proven results. From a 42% reduction in spud-to-TD time in the Eagle Ford to an additional 15% of reservoir access in Norway, NOV is setting the standard for automation systems around the world.

    NOV Automation uses a closed-loop downhole drilling system to feed high-speed drilling data into state-of-the-art autonomous rig controls. This optimizes and controls the well construction process for a cost-effective solution on your rigs or in your operations. With NOV Automation, the driller has a real-time tool set they can use to automatically adjust drilling parameters and implement steps of the drilling process without losing focus on other critical responsibilities.
