ABSTRACT
The article focuses on i-DRILL, a latest drilling optimization software program, developed by Smith Technologies. The oil drilling software program is said to assist drilling engineers in analyzing the total drilling system. The article states that the i-DRILL provides visuals of the drillstring in action helping the drilling engineers to identify vibrations and high forces on the drillstring. The article concludes that by identifying the damaging processes involved in drilling and eliminating them methodically the i-DRILL software helps in minimizing the costs and risks involved in drilling.
