HOUSTON March 23, 2022—The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) recently announced that the ReSOLVE iX extreme-performance instrumented wireline intervention service and Autonomous Directional Drilling have each won an OTC 2022 Spotlight on New Technology® Award. The annual awards program recognizes companies that are revolutionizing the future of offshore energy through technological advancement and innovation.
“OTC has long served as a forum to showcase the most impressive and innovative technologies when it comes to the development of offshore energy,” said Leigh Ann Runyan, executive director of the Offshore Technology Conference. “We are pleased to recognize two of Schlumberger’s tools and technologies this year, ReSOLVE iX and Autonomous Directional Drilling, both of which leverage automation and digitalization to advance offshore exploration and production.”
The ReSOLVE iX service leverages intelligent downhole technologies to optimize results in extreme conditions, such as HPHT, sour, and restricted-access environments. The combination of innovative hardware, automation, and digitization enables operators to monitor and control intervention in real time and take immediate action to address downhole challenges.
Autonomous Directional Drilling isn't one tool or technology. It amalgamates the fullness of well construction operations to drill from spud to TD, using an autonomous system that constantly analyzes its position, formation characteristics, conditions, and trajectory to optimize steering, well placement, and overall drilling performance—reducing cost/foot drilled and improving productivity.
ReSOLVE iX is a mark of Schlumberger.
