Schlumberger is introducing drilling automation to its service offerings through the development of a family of manageable modules that can be used independently or in combination, with the ultimate vision of a complete intelligent system that will have the capability to drill a hole section autonomously. The architecture to deliver this vision relies on a close partnership with the rig and drilling contractors to ensure that appropriate fail-safes are incorporated into the system. Included in this partnership—and central to the automation process—is the development of an integration system that intimately links surface machines on the rig with the downhole systems.
