DRILLWELL TECHNICAL SEMINAR 2017

05.10.2017

The two-day seminar proved that digitalization is an increasingly important factor for improving drilling and well technology. More than one hundred people attended the knowledge-packed seminar, which is new record.

The first day of the seminar focused on the digital transformation and digitalization of drilling technology and was moderated by Research Director at IRIS, Helga Gjeraldstveit.

DrillWell manager, Sigmund Stokka opened the meeting and emphasized the importance of the DrillWell research centre and the good co-operation with the industrial partners.

The second day of the seminar continued in the digital track and the presentations showed us that  CT scanning and X-ray are widely used in research and development of cementing and P&A technology.

Read more about day two.

Senior research scientist at IRIS and member of the DrillWell management group, Jan Einar Gravdal was very satisfied with this year’s seminar. - In this seminar we can focus specifically on the R&D areas that we address in DrillWell. This year we wanted to emphasize on digitalization, and I believe we managed to do that quite well. The seminar is very important for us, to align our goals with the industry. We are very satisfied with the number of participants for this year's seminar.

Research Director at SINTEF and DrillWell management group member, Harald Linga adds. - For the seminar the contributions from operating companies in terms of knowledge sharing and implementation of new technologies supporting drilling automation and digitalization was very well received. Also the value of understanding rock mechanics, supported by examples of the utilisation rock formation characteristics of the alleviation of leakages from the well was demonstrated. This topic, being a part of the P&A sessions, has significant potential for cost reductions for P&A.

Technical Committee member from Conoco Phillips, Stein Håvardstein said that the 2017 DrillWell seminar gave an interesting insight in many different perspectives, industry ambitions and research initiatives from both the industry partners and the research institutes. - The seminar demonstrated the drive towards increase of digitalization in the drilling and well industry as well as improve quality and cost reduction in the P&A operations.

Dr. John L. Thorogood, drilling engineering advisor at Drilling Global Consultant LLP and member of the DrillWell scientific advisory committee also commented on the seminar. - It was an excellent set of presentations by DrillWell scientists and industrial end users.  The work is truly leading edge both on the automation side and also on the P&A.  A well organised seminar and a valuable showcase for the DrillWell activities. More effort should be devoted to getting attendance from the other Norwegian operators and also from the UK, the Oil and Gas Authority and also the Oil and Gas Technology Centre.  These people really do need to know of the exciting stuff going on in Norway, Dr. Thorogood concluded.

Finally DrillWell manager, Sigmund Stokka said. - It was a great pleasure to experience such engagement from oil & gas companies, suppliers and researchers. New research results and how to use new technology within drilling, cementing and P&A were presented by highly engaged speakers. And the breaks during the day were used for socializing, discussion and exchange of experience, Stokka emphasized.
