Drive Knowledge Sharing With All-New Annotations

June 8, 2020

Corva automatically captures drilling and completion insights in real-time, surfacing valuable insights into performance through its Metrics Engine, and apps like Driller’s Roadmap and BHA Optimization apps.  But what about best practices and lessons learned that come from human observation, look-back analysis, and sidebar conversations?  All too often this valuable information is informally shared over e-mail or chat and lacks the channel and transparency to be shared across teams. Such knowledge is almost always disconnected from the actual data it relates to.  With Corva Annotations your team can keep everything connected and in context.

Frac Chemical Optimization: Stop Pouring Money Down the Drain

November 7, 2019

How slick does your slick water frac really need to be?  When it comes to maximizing hydraulic fracturing performance it seems the industry is willing to throw money at the problem.  It’s better to over-use expensive chemical additives than under-use.  But the costs add up for friction reducer (FR), crosslinked gel, and other fracturing fluids.  With Corva, however, you can dial-in just the right amount every time and book the savings.

Mining Real-Time Rig Data to Prevent Catastrophic Events

July 5, 2019

The sight of the Lucas well at Spindletop in 1901 spewing oil into the sky became a tragically misunderstood trope in which “gusher” has become synonymous with drilling success. Anyone in the oil & gas extraction business knows, however, that a gusher, or blowout, is a failure of epic proportions that puts people and the environment at high risk. We are laser-focused in the industry to prevent such catastrophic events, deploying advanced pressure control systems and continuously monitoring data streaming from the rig for any early warning signs. But blowouts, washouts, twist offs, and a myriad of other train wrecks still happen. Why?

How to Pick the Best BHA Every Time

December 11, 2018

Selection of the bottom hole assemblies for a new well is an art and a science. To optimize ROP, drillers need to pick the right drill bit or mud motor for the job, factor in a multitude of drilling parameters – like weight on bit and RPM – and have an extensive understanding of subsurface conditions. There are a lot of moving parts and hundreds of variables, making BHA selection a monumental task. But what if you could open an app on your phone and find the perfect BHA in just a few minutes?

Automated Drillers Road Map… Lose the Spreadsheets

August 22, 2018

The current best practice for selection of optimal drilling parameters is to generate complex spreadsheets for static results of formation parameters. Corva has developed an automated Drillers Road Map, or DRM, that allows users to efficiently mine offset well data by replacing the manual process. Users spend time analyzing DRM results from offset wells instead of manipulating and processing data merely to produce the DRM.

RTO in Your Pocket: How to Drill Longer Laterals from the Beach

May 9, 2018

Soaring demand for oil & gas and the US shale revolution has created an imperative for today’s domestic producers to increasingly outperform.   Keeping up with demand means continuously improving processes and driving higher levels of drilling and cost efficiency through automation and factory drilling.  As a result, the industry is shifting toward real-time operations to manage, monitor, and optimize drilling programs.  For the majors, RTO takes the form of technology filled rooms staffed 24/7 by engineering staff that often resemble NASA mission control.  But for the hundreds of other E&Ps drilling wells in the Permian, Eagle Ford, Bakken, and other areas of development, the benefits of RTO have been out of reach – until now.
