AI Powered Closed-Loop Automation Boosts ROP by 26% for Permian Well Pad

Accelerating ROP Through Subsurface Complexity

A Permian operator wanted to increase vertical drilling ROP through multiple formations that would require continuous set point adjustments and ROP controlled transitions.

Featuring a rotary drilling optimized AI model, Corva's Predictive Drilling solution was deployed to optimize weight on bit, RPM, and differential pressure set points for a 4-well pad in the Permian, which were executed using a Nabors SmartROS® auto-driller.

Key Results & Value Delivered

Leveraging Corva's Predictive Drilling solution working in concert with the Nabors SmartROS control system, the operator outperformed nearby offset well ROP by 26%, reduced trip time, and extended bit life.
