Using real-time information to deliver safe, reliable and efficient well construction
BP Well Advsor
BP Well Advisor integrates data from wells with predictive tools, processes and expertise to help operators improve decision-making in real time. Its intuitive consoles enable rig crews and office-based engineers to monitor operations in real time. Three BP Well Advisor consoles have now been developed and handed over to engineering for deployment at scale. The remaining seven consoles will be delivered by end-2016. Our focus is to increase Well Construction Efficiency (Casing Running, Rigsite Fluid Management, Drilling Operations, Tripping, ROP Optimisation consoles), and Life of Well Reliability (Cementing, Completions consoles) BP Well Advisor is supported by real-time monitoring centers in Houston, Aberdeen, Luanda and Baku.
BP Well Advisor deployed and in trial in Azerbaijan:
- Casing Running Console: first field trialled on ACG and now live on ten rigs. More than 170 runs have been completed using Casing Running Console on ACG and Shah Deniz
- Completions (Make Up torque), Drilling Operations and Tripping all in field trial on ACG
- Other Consoles under investigation include Rig Site Fluid Management Console to support real-time monitoring of Pore Pressure Fracture Gradient, alerting rig crews to potential well control issues, and Cementing Console, which provide clear indicators of cement placement effectiveness and well barrier quality.
