Title (EN) DRILLING RIG SOFTWARE SYSTEM CONTROLS RIG EQUIPMENT TO AUTOMATE ROUTINE DRILLING PROCESSES
(FR) SYSTÈME LOGICIEL D'APPAREIL DE FORAGE COMMANDANT UN ÉQUIPEMENT D'APPAREIL DE FORAGE POUR AUTOMATISER DES PROCESSUS DE FORAGE DE ROUTINE
Abstract:
(EN) Automated drilling may include receiving a tool-agnostic request to perform a process, determining one or more activities to complete the process, identifying a controller module associated with a first activity of the one or more activities, and triggering the controller module to initiate the first activity, wherein the controller module identifies and directs one or more drilling tools to initiate the first activity.
(FR) L'invention concerne un forage automatisé pouvant consister à recevoir une demande, agnostique eu égard à l'outil, de réalisation d'un processus, à déterminer une ou plusieurs activités pour réaliser le processus, à identifier un module de dispositif de commande associé à une première activité parmi lesdites activités, et à déclencher le module de commande pour démarrer la première activité, le module de dispositif de commande identifiant et dirigeant un ou plusieurs outils de forage pour démarrer la première activité.
