Operator Saves $175k per Well by Avoiding Unnecessary Bit Trips Using Procedural Compliance App

Enforcing Back-to-Bottom Procedures

Standard back-to-bottom procedures for RPM and zeroing of differential pressure and weight-on-bit are designed to minimize equipment wear, however inconsistent crew procedures often result in bit or motor damage that leads to unnecessary tripping and NPT.

An Eagle Ford operator deployed Corva’s Procedural Compliance app to enforce back-to-bottom procedures by providing crews with the performance feedback needed to improve.

Key Results & Value Delivered

Leveraging Corva’s Procedural Compliance app and alerts, the operator eliminated one round trip per lateral while extending downhole equipment life.
