Science-ing Up Deep Earth Drill Bit Design with MATLAB Production Server
Christopher Bremer, NOV ReedHycalog
Polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC) bits have revolutionized oil and gas exploration in recent decades and continue to show dramatic improvements in drilling speed and durability. This progress is driven by the work of research engineers, material scientists, and laboratory technicians. In order to stay competitive, ReedHycalog needs a fast track for pushing rapidly evolving technology from the lab to bit designers to the factory floor. Our software package, “Orbit”, enables engineers to evaluate their CAD designs against cutting edge scientific models. To complete the loop, we continuously validate and improve these models using field data from the finished product. The speaker talks about how MATLAB Production Server allows NOV to rapidly integrate current R&D into their software in order to “science up” the bit design process.
