The drilling industry has long been labeled as being slow to embrace new technologies and innovation. However, that may not be an accurate characterization of the industry, Ekaterina Minyaeva, Drilling Automation, Subsurface and Wells Consultant at OTM Consulting, said in a presentation at the 2017 SPE DSATS/IADC ART symposium on 13 March in The Hague, The Netherlands.

She also discusses why adapting automated tools from other industries can pose critical challenges for the oil and gas industry.
