Halliburton Firm has launched the iStar Clever Drilling and Logging Platform, a complete measurement platform comprising a number of companies for higher management of drilling and logging operations
The platform’s digital structure helps automation, machine studying, and synthetic intelligence for reservoir analysis, quicker drilling, and constant nicely supply.
The iStar platform acquires high-definition measurements nearer to the bit and deeper into the formation for enhanced subsurface perception. It gives unprecedented real-time visibility of the sort and amount of reservoir fluids and makes use of knowledge science strategies to optimise reserves calculations and enhance nicely placement.
The expertise helps maximise the speed of penetration by built-in drilling dynamics and steady nicely positioning measurements. Halliburton designed the platform with extra sensors and fewer collars, considerably lowering the bottom-hole meeting size and reducing the variety of connections to enhance reliability.
“Halliburton listened to our clients and responded to their challenges by creating the iStar platform, our most superior drilling and logging measurement expertise,” mentioned Rami Yassine, vice chairman of Sperry Drilling. “The iStar platform is a step-change in delivering downhole measurements with higher pace, accuracy, and predictability.”
Operators have run iStar companies in a number of areas throughout the Center East, Europe, and North America. An operator within the Center East deployed the iStar platform in a number of nicely profiles and trajectories, over a variety of formation traits and in difficult drilling and logging environments. The great set of drilling dynamics measurements, mixed with an ultrasonic caliper log, supplied the operator with clear perception into the affect of drilling parameters on wellbore circumstances. This enabled real-time optimisation of the drilling course of. The operator additionally realised improved formation analysis measurements, notably within the responses of resistivity measurements in each low- and high-resistivity formations. Moreover, iStar elevated BHA meeting pace and considerably elevated data-transfer charges, lowering total rig operation time.
