Schlumberger has launched its SENSU rig operation surveillance and instrumentation system at ADIPEC 2014
At the company stand, Guillaume Hallier, product champion for real time and remote operations for Geoservices, a Schlumberger company, demonstrated the system, which provides a unique monitoring platform with real-time operational metrics and KPIs that empower the driller and wellsite team to deliver superior performance in both conventional and unconventional environments.
Schlumberger has successfully tested the SENSU system for more than 3,000 hours for Saxon Energy Services in two Omani well sites and the real-time critical rig information enabled improved drilling performance, rig operations and safety.
The embedded Schlumberger rig-state engine, unique to the SENSU system, automatically detects 17 individual rig activities, enabling real-time and automatic calculations of event metrics; maintenance measurements for critical rig component parts; and calculating various drilling and tripping KPIs in real time at the rig site, Hallier added. By reducing non-productive time (NPT) and invisible lost time (ILT), the platform enables a cost reduction in daily rig operations and optimises the well construction process. Features also include a stop/start functionality with automatic loading of sensor calibrations.
According to expert Hallier, the USPs of the SENSU system includes automated detection of rig activities, advanced reporting application and real time tracking of operation metrics and KPIs.
