Surface Automation suite maximizes ROP, reduces stick slip for Mid-Con operator

The new Surface Automation suite from National Oilwell Varco (NOV) was recently tested on a three-well project in Oklahoma. The service allowed the operator to track drilling data from downhole tools in order to find optimal parameters for weight on bit and RPM range, thus enabling the rate of penetration to be maximized and stick slip to be reduced. Watch our video with NOV Drilling Services Manager Luke Jordan from 2 May at the 2016 OTC in Houston as he tells DC about the project and lessons learned.
