Remote Operations for Drilling

Overview Library

Achieve your objectives while meeting the requirements for reduced personnel on location

Ongoing operational trends have seen a shift toward reducing wellsite drilling personnel as part of an overall strategy to address challenges in the field.

Remote operations can mitigate multiple challenges, including

  • talent shortage
  • HSE exposure
  • rig space limitation
  • employee security concerns
  • cost of service delivery
  • performance consistency.

Schlumberger’s investment in high-availability IT infrastructure, wellsite connectivity, and real-time collaborative workflows provides the opportunity for strategically placing domain experts in nonwellsite locations. Our extensive global experience has consistently demonstrated significant performance improvements in HSE and overall operations efficiency through remote management of specific key tasks.

Directional drilling & MLWD expertise centralized

Understanding every situation is unique, Schlumberger has developed remote operations staffing criteria for recommending the proficiency levels and number of wellsite crew and office-based crew members. Implementation takes into account the complexities and risks associated with the wellsite environment, well profile, wellbore stability, projected speed of operations, BHA complexity, and types of drilling tools.
