Delaware Basin Operator Improves Lateral ROP 36% While Reducing Vibration 9.7% With Closed Loop Predictive Drilling

Revolutionizing Wellsite Efficiency

A Delaware Basin Operator aimed to minimize the cost per foot drilled while preventing unplanned trips by automating optimal set points and mitigating dysfunctions and shock-and-vibe issues. By employing advanced machine learning and AI technologies, Corva’s Predictive Drilling Solution, and Nabors’ SmartROS®, the project successfully drilled four Delaware Basin laterals with zero unplanned trips.

Key Results & Value Delivered

The crew’s adoption of Corva’s Predictive Drilling reduced an average vibration by 9.7% and delivered a 36% increase in on-bottom ROP. This led to significant cost savings and faster drilling processes.
