• NOV’s optimization technologies, which integrate advanced downhole and along-string measurements with wired drill pipe and high-speed telemetry, allow operators to better understand borehole conditions in real time. This work is becoming increasingly important as wells become more complex and reduced AFE necessitates that drilling campaigns achieve success more economically.

    We worked with Statoil on their Barents Sea exploration drilling campaign in 2017 to prove that wired drill pipe was a viable technology, implement wired drill pipe as part of Statoil’s broader digitalization and automated drilling strategy, and increase drilling efficiency and safety in environment-sensitive wells. The technology suite we provided included BlackStream™ ASM and EMS tools, an EFD viewer, and IntelliServ™ pipe with high-speed telemetry network.
