Drilling Data Cleaning and Preparation for Data Analytics Application

Recorded On: 12/10/2020

Throughout the history of oil well drilling, service providers have been continuously striving to improve performance and reduce total drilling costs to operating companies. Despite constant improvement in tools, products and processes, data science cannot be applied straightaway due to data quality issues. But when achieved, the implementation of data science in the energy sector brings significant value in operational efficiency and drilling optimization. The challenge is how to efficiently process the massive amounts of data produced by the multitude of internet of thing (IOT) sensors at the rig. Once cleaned, the data can be fed into data analytics platforms and machine learning models to efficiently analyze trends and plan future well more efficiently. This roadmap can serve as a basis for drilling optimization. The objective of this presentation is to detail the various steps needed to prepare field drilling data for business analysis, as well discuss about data analytics and machine learning application in drilling operations.
