• eVolve: ADVISE

    Our eVolve™ Optimization Service delivers proven performance. ADVISE is an integrated drilling approach with an optimization foundation that enhances operations analyses by incorporating downhole data. ADVISE combines strong technical processes, robust analysis software, specialized downhole tools, and a dedicated project team whose objective is to reduce your overall drilling costs.

    ADVISE provides a customizable drilling service suited to any operation.  Our team of experienced NOV specialists will: 

    • Review and analyze existing well data 
    • Combine surface data with measurements obtained by our suite of BlackBox™ downhole dynamics acquisition tools 
    • Identify and address potential performance limiters 
    • Analyze rock properties and formation characteristics 
    • Highlight potential drilling risks and propose solutions to mitigate dysfunction 
    • Identify drilling parameters that lead to destructive vibration modes  
    • Evaluate torque and drag, MSE, buckling, and other dynamic behavior 
    • Provide formation and depth-based parameter roadmaps 
    • Recommend BHA design and components 

    On-site supervision as well as access to real-time remote monitoring through our Real-Time Technology Center(RTTC) will ensure optimum performance. Post-run data analysis and comparison to pre-established benchmarks create and maintain a culture of continuous improvement that will reduce well delivery costs.
