The main focus of the eControl System is to provide automation and control of the drilling machines by real time assistance of advanced modeling of the downhole drilling process.

The main focus of the eControl System is to provide automation and control of the drilling machines by real time assistance of advanced modeling of the downhole drilling process. The Integrated Drilling Simulator (IDS) is a central part of the eControl System. The eControl System is designed to be a stand-alone system independent of rig control system and available interfaces.

Part objectives of applying the eControl System are:

  • Deep water hydraulics and well control optimization
  • HPHT drilling optimization
  • Automation of critical sub-operations:
    - Automatic circulation start-up
    - Safe trip
    - Automatic kick/loss detection
    - Reaming Assistant
    - Drilling tests
    - Advanced Auto-Driller
    - Stuck pipe prevention
