Successful deployment of drilling optimization and automation tasks is highly dependent on data quality, an understanding of data latency, and on the physics of the sensors themselves. The talk will begin with an overview of the motivation for and the current work of the SPE Drilling Systems Automation Technical Session (DSATS) Drilling Quality Assurance (DQA) initiative which is seeking to define a set of standards for sensor specifications, minimal sensing requirements and data transfer standards. Next an overview of sensing mechanics and data acquisition will be presented and its relevance to data quality and analytics. The effects of sensor latency, sensor sampling rates and sensor calibration on drilling operations – especially optimization and automation tasks – will then be explored through a series of examples. These examples will range from the laboratory testing of control systems on small scale drilling machines to extended reach lateral wells and will explore effects on reaction time to drilling incidents.
