Integrated Well Construction
Making your project safer, simpler, faster, better
Accelerate well construction and optimize performance.
Reduce well construction emissions through planning, monitoring, and innovation
Oil and gas extraction activities create about 10% of all current E&P-related emissions industry-wide. These come primarily from CO2 generated by fuel used to power generators and other equipment on drilling rigs, platforms, and other well construction- and production-related equipment and infrastructure. A key opportunity to reduce these emissions is by improving operational efficiency, reducing energy consumption, and targeting fuel use directly. The Schlumberger Drilling Emissions Management service helps you to drive down well construction emissions with an end to end solution including planning, monitoring, innovative solutions, and continuous improvement.
Starting in the planning phase, the Schlumberger team assesses different operational sequences and technology choices aimed at minimizing emissions and designs a rig-specific emissions monitoring approach. Once the well plan is finalized and drilling begins, real-time rig energy consumption measurements and emissions are correlated to the well plan. Energy consumption is used to calculate rig power plant exhaust greenhouse gas emissions, which are monitored and reported in terms of CO2 equivalent global warming potential. In real time and during the postjob phase, emissions are compared to the plan and actions are suggested to enable further reductions. These actions leverage our deep understanding of the well construction process, emissions domain expertise, and fit-for-purpose products and services including our Transition Technologies portfolio.
Drilling Emissions Management is available as part of the Schlumberger Integrated Well Construction solutions or as a stand-alone consulting engagement. Value to the customer’s drilling operation increases when Schlumberger services are combined for maximum impact on operational efficiency and the carbon footprint.
