Description

Many in our industry are chasing digital data. To stay alive in this industry we must optimize the way we collect, measure, analyze and predict the results of digital data to improve drilling efficiencies and overall performance.

One pathway starts with understanding data collection within the drillstring with near bit measurement technologies.

Please join this IADD luncheon session to learn more about:

  • What are we chasing? …and why are we chasing the big data?
  • What near bit technologies exist today by drill bit providers?
  • What impact have we made in the industry so far?
  • What else is needed?
