Two new technology advances have made game-changing differences in Schlumberger’s well-construction offering: remote control directional drilling and the RSS Tool Box. The first system allows the directional driller to fully control the RSS from a remote location, such as an operation support center. With remote control of the mud pumps, the directional driller can send the downlink commands directly to the BHA from the office and receive positive confirmation that they have been correctly understood and executed. The RSS Tool Box acts as an advisor to the directional driller for it senses every command the directional driller sends, then back-calculates to the present location and orientation of the bit.
