This project has received funding under the European Union’s 2020 Research & Innovation Action under grant agreement No. 101006964

Bringing together highly experienced drillers, drilling project managers, engineers and operators.

An enhanced monitoring system will be developed based on real time MWD systems as well as acoustic and vibration sensors.

The automated machine learning analysis method will predict drilling parameters, using a real-time monitoring and optimization tool, as a unified system combining existing data and the newly developed methods, and finally, a coupled drilling optimization models to reduce overall geothermal drilling and production cost.

The goal is to advise and support drilling operators in making informed decisions through real-time data.

Reducing many of uncertainties associated with drilling, which in term leads to less NPT, as the drilling can be more readily optimised to maintain good ROP, borehole control and address possible drilling issues, before they could impact operation.

The OPTIDRILL Advisory System is NOT an attempt to just fully automate drill rig operations, but rather to enhance and digitize decision making and reporting, instrument and optimize the drilling process, and share and transfer this learning across subsequent future application.
