ExxonMobil has awarded to data management company Pason Systems, Inc. the first global license of its patented Drilling Advisory System™, a key component of the company’s Fast Drill™ technology suite, according to a press release by the energy company.
Fast Drill combines high-end modeling of drilling physics with structured well planning and design to identify limiters and maximize performance. ExxonMobil’s drilling rate has improved more than 80 percent since introducing the Fast Drill process more than a decade ago. The Drilling Advisory System automates and enables implementation of the Fast Drill process in real time on the rig floor by integrating ExxonMobil proprietary modeling with data analytics. Use of the Drilling Advisory System has thus far improved ExxonMobil’s drilling performance at nine fields.
