HOUSTON--(  )-- SLB (NYSE: SLB) announced that Equinor has taken a significant step toward fully automated drilling at the Peregrino C platform in Brazil. By combining SLB's digital technology of automatic surface excavation, automatic bottom excavation, and slope excavation, it is now possible to excavate 99% of the 2.6 km section in automatic control mode. The five-well program increased penetration rates by 60%, reducing costs and carbon emissions while delivering early wells.

“This is an exciting milestone on our journey towards fully automated drilling operations,” said Jesus Lamas, President of SLB's Well Construction Division. “By leveraging AI and integrating advanced digital workflows, customers can digitally transform to improve safety and performance, make drilling more stable and efficient, and increase the carbon footprint of their operations. I am.”

Experts from various fields worked together to design and implement an interconnected automated workflow that allows the system to seamlessly excavate sections. On the rig floor, DrillPilot™ software automated manual pipe handling and equipment sequencing tasks. Bottom drilling performance was maximized using AI-driven technology from the DrillOps™ automation solution. The Neuro™ automation solution determined the optimal trajectory and provided the well plan while adjusting the steering sequence and drilling parameters to reach the goals designed by the DrillPlan™ coherent well construction planning solution.

DrillOps and DrillPlan solutions are cloud-based applications on the Delfi™ digital platform. The platform combines apps, AI, physics-based science, and free-flowing data to accelerate and improve exploration, development, drilling, production, and new energy operations.
