NOVOS evolves, with new emphasis on extracting value through optimization
When the NOVOS process automation platform was first introduced, the focus was on ensuring the system was operational and consistent. Now, users are demanding more than just a consistent process and placing new emphasis on extracting value through having an optimized process, said Matt Jackson, Product Development Engineering Supervisor with National Oilwell Varco (NOV) at the IADC Drilling Engineers Committee Q2 Technology Forum in Houston on 26 June. This requires harnessing the expertise of individuals with a background in drilling dynamics to utilize system configurations for top results. In this video, Mr Jackson talks to DC about the optimization of an Appalachia well and how connection time was significantly reduced.
