Well delivery scheduling is a complex and critical process, with substantial economic impact. Done well, it maximizes the efficient use of costly resources such as rigs, warns of operational risks (such as offset well violations or continuous drilling provision problems), improves organizational responsiveness to operational or business changes, and yields substantial economic benefits. Done poorly, the consequences can be severe: deferred production, cycle time delays, and increased costs.

Despite its importance—and surprisingly, in view of its complexity—well delivery scheduling is often done manually using unsophisticated software tools. Consequently, the scheduler has to make all decisions about how to assemble and manage a schedule on an ongoing basis. 

Next generation, AI-powered scheduling software tools overcome the limitations of manual scheduling and yield tangible business benefits. In this webinar we’ll look at scheduling challenges and how to over come them with new tools built specifically for the oilfield.

Viewers will learn:

  • How AI is changing the way companies schedule their drilling and well delivery programs
  • How to optimize schedules automatically
  • How to answer questions like, "What happens to production targets and costs if we add or remove a rig?" in minutes instead of days.
