Real-Time Automated Broomstick Plot Empowers Decision to Prevent a Potential Stuck Pipe Incident

Identifying Stuck Pipe Incidents

Stuck pipe creates a cascade of nonproductive time and costs from idle rig time and expensive fishing jobs, underscoring the need to analyze downhole conditions in real time while tripping to keep drilling projects on target.

A Neuquén Basin operator deployed Corva’s Hookload Broomstick app to analyze pick up, slack off, and rotating off bottom hookload in order to identify leading indicators of stuck pipe.

Key Results & Value Delivered

Leveraging the real-time hookload broomstick plot the Operator identified a trend while pulling out of hole where pick-up weights were increasing across FF lines, enabling the drilling team to take appropriate action to remediate and successfully run casing to depth.
