Parametric Modeling

Process Monitoring

  • Benchtop procedures are routinely reviewed for compliance verification
  • Process changes resulting from lessons learned and technological evolutions are tracked and trained on
  • Ongoing training and technician feedback are used to optimize quality work practice, product design improvements, customer feedback and QC / test methods

Root Cause Analysis

  • Senior technicians isolate problematic strings and keep them in quarantine until root causes are determined and corrective actions implemented
  • Final Reporting is completed, distributed and archived on all downhole failures.
  • All equipment failures are logged in a comprehensive database including: Asset S/Ns, Operating Conditions, Root Cause determinations and Pareto trend analysis
  • Provides a vital Feedback mechanism for continual service quality improvement by providing input for: Process development, Product design improvements, Customer Feedback and QC / Test methods

Lead Operator Experience

Our Lead Operators have over 20 years of experience in the industry.

Downhole Drilling

24/7 Field Services

We build personal relationships with drilling engineers, geologists, and rig personnel and provide 24/7 support to answer questions, immediately implement specific needs or wants (real-time inclination, shock and vibe data, changes to gamma logs, etc), and to also offer recommendations based on experience to aid in the success of each well drilled.

We also provide 24/7 On-Call support for our field operators to help them give you the best possible service including: Logistics Support, Pre-job & pre-run setup, Troubleshooting assistance and Remote Access Capabilities.


Customized Configurations

We adjust our configurations prior to every run based on client needs and wants. The following are just a few of the things we do to optimize your run.

  • Configure for 6 axis surveys or quicker traditional transmitted value surveys.
  • Adjust survey acquisition times and transmit delay times for specific well depth and BHA components.
  • Optimize pressure drops to enable quicker or more reliable decodes and facilitate surveys on the fly.
  • Balance telemetered words for specific run needs to include all standard and optional transmissions.
Customized Configurations

Field Quality PRDS (Pre-Run Datasheet)

This process spreadsheet is basically a one-stop-shop for field operators to set up MWD configurations for each specific run. Once drilling parameters, BHA component details, and mud properties are determined for the run, the field operator simply inputs this data into the PRDS to determine the many variables that will result in his planned configuration, including:

  • Poppet / Orifice recommendations for desired Pulse Amplitude
  • Expected Fluid velocities during run
  • Data points per foot / ROP
  • Gamma scale Factors
  • Magnetic spacing (required and actual)

The PRDS will automatically flag any parameter or setting that is not within accepted ranges with RED or YELLOW, notifying the field operator that changes to set up may be needed in order to ensure a problem-free run.

Trained field technicians

Field Quality Monitoring

Field Data Quality Review (FDQR) are conducted per well per day. Process includes:

  • Independent Field Parameter Check/Confirmation QC
  • Total Correction
  • Magnetic Data Verification
  • TFO Verification
  • Survey Quality Verification
  • Gamma Quality Verification
  • Mag Spacing
  • Well Data Information (RKB, XY’s, GL, PD, etc…)
  • Overall General Presentation

FPR’s (Field Process Reviews):

  • DrilTech performs a Quarterly review of Field Operators procedures, processes, methods, etc.
  • DrilTech sends a Senior Operations Manager to tour the current rigs and observe and discus operations to gauge where the needs are for improvement.

Field Service Routines

  • Experienced operators service and check tools every run
  • Access to memory data allows operator access to critical operating condition information
  • Rotation of instrumentation during and between wells is seamless and ensures proper equipment maintenance is being performed.
