Nabors’ RigCLOUD announced the integration of the SmartNAV automated directional guidance system with ROGII’s advanced auto-geosteering tool, StarSteer.
The integration of the two technologies streamlines the process for geologists by having the geosteering data pushed automatically to SmartNAV, helping to eliminate errors, missing data and the possibility for missing new geological targets that can result from manual workflows. As a result, users can create more consistent and reliable changes across fleets and boost geologists’ confidence in making target change decisions proactively.
Other features of the integration include:
- The ability to immediately see target data and changes captured from StarSteer in SmartNAV
- Automatically translating the target changes into a new drilling window in SmartNAV
- SmartNAV users are notified when changes from StarSteer are applied
- StarSteer will display the updated SmartNAV path forward on their plots after every survey station
Additionally, users have the option to automate the execution of SmartNAV decisions after they are sent to the rig.
