  • Patent number: 11434742
    Abstract: An apparatus for, and method of identifying a potential problem with, drilling equipment that is used in a drilling operation. The method includes monitoring an actual drilling parameter associated with the drilling operation; comparing the actual drilling parameter to a target drilling parameter to determine a deviation between the actual and target drilling parameters; creating, using the controller and in response to the deviation, instructions for a control system that controls an aspect of the drilling operation; drilling, using the instructions and the controller, the wellbore; monitoring, using the controller, a change in deviation in response to drilling using the instructions; determining that the change in deviation is below a threshold; and determining, based on the change in deviation being below the threshold, that there is a potential problem with the drilling equipment.

  • Patent number: 11365594
    Abstract: A method for maintaining a constant bottom hole pressure during wellbore drilling operations, the method comprising supplying drilling fluid to the drill string via a top drive at a first pressure while flow of drilling fluid out of a wellbore annulus is restricted by a choke to hold pressure in a wellbore annulus and supplying drilling fluid to the drill string via the top drive at a second pressure lower than the first pressure and to a circulation coupler at a third pressure while flow of drilling fluid out of a wellbore annulus is restricted by a choke to hold pressure in the annulus, wherein the sum of the second and third pressures is approximately the same as the first pressure.

  • Publication number: 20220049594
    Abstract: An apparatus and method of operating a drilling system with a directional guidance system and a drilling operation system is described. The directional guidance system and drilling operation system may engage in bi-directional communication during a slide drilling operation. This communication may be continual during the drilling operation. Parameters of the drilling instructions and the drilling operation system may be changed in response to these communications resulting in new instructions and changed slide drilling operations.

  • Publication number: 20220050953
    Abstract: A method for displaying digitized documents in a non-proportional manner that retains the overall context while emphasizing high value information is provided. The method includes determining useful increment for scaling objects of digital content as a function of their value and their prominence and proximity to other objects. The font size of high-value text elements for containers may be increased and the container themselves may be vertically scaled and shifted in a non-proportional manner.

  • Publication number: 20220049593
    Abstract: A method of transitioning from rotary to slide drilling while maintaining a bit of a bottom hole assembly (“BHA”) on a wellbore bottom includes (a) recording a first toolface value of the BHA that is coupled to a drill string; (b) identifying a correlation between the first toolface value and a first quill position of a quill coupled to the drill string; (c) identifying a breakover torque for the drill string; (d) performing rotary drilling; (e) recording a second toolface value while the bit remains on the wellbore bottom; (f) receiving, while the bit remains on the wellbore bottom, a target toolface value; (g) calculating, while the bit remains on the wellbore bottom, an unwind amount to unwind the drill string; and (h) unwinding the drill string by the unwind amount to bring the second toolface value closer to the target toolface value while the bit remains on the bottom.
