As industry pushes forward on automation, interest in multi-machine control is renewed

With one joystick and one user interface, the National Oilwell Varco (NOV) multi-machine control system allows efficient and consistent control, said Guido van den Bos, Director of Business Development in Europe, Africa and the Middle East with NOV, at the 2019 SPE/IADC International Drilling Conference in The Hague. The system allows drillers to focus more attention on downhole conditions instead of handovers. In this video, Mr van den Bos explains why the industry is seeing renewed interest in MMC technology, as well as potential applications in the near future.
