Verdande Technology, a provider of real-time predictive analytics decision management solutions, today announced the launch of DrillEdge™ mud motor failure capability. Operators will benefit from the hindsight, insight, and foresight needed to increase drilling efficiency and deliver wells consistently within prescribed times while minimizing downhole risks.
DrillEdge uses predictive analytics such as Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) to identify key indicators of potential mud motor failure and to take action before drilling operations are impacted or costly tool damage occurs. DrillEdge monitors for early symptoms of damage sustained ahead of an outright failure by relating Mechanical Specific Energy (MSE), a well-established downhole drilling performance efficiency metric, to accumulated downhole tool stress.
“This solution became a focus for us after we began looking for new ways to benefit factory drilling operations beyond our existing NPT solutions. When looking at prevailing NPT in factory drilling operations to successfully automate and optimize that type of drilling, we found that the continuous efficiency created required that drilling optimization solutions in our software be developed to assist in cost control and performance improvement. We plan to expand our drilling optimization portfolio this year,” said Philip Wade, COO, Verdande Technology. “We recognize that land operators are increasingly turning to factory drilling principles, and as such our solutions need to be focused on how best to complement those principles to mitigate downhole tool damage, such as mud motor failure.”
“Hess Corporation identified one form of drilling dysfunction that can lead to “microstalling” induced by an improperly configured auto driller, which can cause 2-15% reduced drilling efficiency per stand, motor failure (chunking), and other BHA failures adding up to approximately $150,000 per incident,” said Matthew Isbell, Drilling Optimization Advisor Well Technology, Hess Corporation. By using DrillEdge to indirectly measure microstalling, Verdande Technology helped us identify future mud motor failures before they occurred.
Verdande Technology and Hess Corporation are offering a complimentary webinar discussing the success in preventing mud motor failure on January 28, 2014 at 10:30 am CST. The webinar will discuss:
- Early warning signs that can contribute to motor failure
- Intervention techniques for mitigating motor failure
- Proven results applied for Hess in the Bakken
DrillEdge delivers real-time predictive analytics to provide decision management solutions that lower risks and reduce non-productive time (NPT) while improving drilling performance. DrillEdge uses an index of data to monitor for issues related to hole cleaning / stuck pipes, lost circulation and hole ballooning, twist-off, bit damage, gas trends, drillstring washout, differential sticking, and motor damage. It allows firms to understand normal activity and make better, smarter, and faster business decisions.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Qosmos has announced new milestones in the detection of encrypted traffic and in protocol signature coverage. Qosmos latest software can accurately classify traffic encrypted with SSL/TLS (e.g., Google, Facebook, WhatsApp), P2P traffic (e.g., BitTorrent, MuTorrent, Vuze), and Skype, while preserving the privacy of communication content. These new classification techniques mean that traffic optimization, policy enforcement, and user experience are largely unaffected by encryption. In respect wit...
