SPE WA April ’18 Technical Luncheon – Real-time Drilling Optimisation

April 18, 2018 @ 11:45 am - 1:00 pm

$30.00 – $60.00

Is Drilling Optimisation the topmost technical and corporate goal/challenge of your organization? Looking beyond the traditional approach of collecting real-time data only for monitoring the operation! Is proactive drilling high on your priority? Explore the real-time solution which anticipates drilling events and avoid delays caused by issues such as pore hole cleaning, torque and drag, swab and surge, stuck pipe, lost circulation, formation damage and wellbore instability!

A Unique state of the art ‘Real-time Drilling Optimisation’ solution creates a dynamic, real-time picture of the entire wellbore and key drilling variables/parameters using advanced, tightly coupled Thermodynamic, Hydraulic, and Mechanical (THM) drilling models & trend analysis application to anticipate potential drilling issues in real-time while drilling. The solution can also be used to perform ‘what-if’ scenarios and ‘look-ahead’ simulations of drilling operation with the purpose to analyze outcome of alternative operating scenarios.

Speaker – Abhijit Barhate & Piyush Patel

Abhijit_Presenter_1_Photo_01Abhijit is a co-founder of Drill Insight, an Australian company based in Perth. He holds B. Chem.Eng (Hons) and Master’s degree in Oil and Gas Engineering from the UWA Perth. He has over 12 years of field, design and modeling experience in full life cycle of oil and gas field development, from drilling and exploration to start up. Most of his career, he worked on the field on drilling as well as production optimisation and found passion in dynamic simulation driven well modeling to solve well control, drilling, production problems and improve drilling, production efficiency. As a well modeling specialist, he provided his expertise to companies like Baker Hughes, Woodside Energy Limited, WG Kenny, Shell, Hess in Australia, STOS in New Zealand. In-fact he has won awards for successfully conducting risks and hazards free managed pressure drilling operations for HPHT and depleted wells.


Piyush is a co-founder of Drill Insight, and the specialist for the Well Contingency, Production Technology, and real-time solution related services. He is a proud alumnus of premier institute IIT and holds Master of Technology degree in Advanced Digital Solution and has been working with technology and innovation-driven organisations for over 15 years. He has worked on Real-time Assurance Solution for both Subsea Production system and drilling operation with his proficiency on Digital Decision Support Solution, Dynamic Simulation, Flow Assurance and Operation Excellence.
