A real-time advisory system for geothermal drilling and well completion optimisation
Latest news from OptiDrill Project
As the 10th UK Geothermal UK Symposium’s echoes still resonate, we sit down with Kevin J Mallin to unravel the key takeaways, groundbreaking discussions, and the promising developments that unfolded during this gathering of minds at the symposium. This blog gives a glimpse of Kevin’s presentation and his takeaway from the event.
With a call for papers, the German Geothermal Association invited interested scientists and projects to present their current scientific findings at the DGK. Young scientists were also invited to participate in the “Science Bar”. This poster competition offered the opportunity to present bachelor’s, master’s or doctoral theses on the topic of geothermal energy to a broad professional audience.
A paper was submitted on “Deep Geothermal Drilling Real-Time Performance Prediction and Optimization Using Artificial Intelligence Methods” and a poster was presented on this paper on the second day of the EGC 2022.
A feature on the OptiDrill Project by Dr Tamanna Khan, Dissemination and Communication Manager of the OptiDrill Project, and Director and Senior Consultant at Technovative Solutions Ltd., was published in the online and print versions of Innovation News Network June issue.
The manner in which the drilling bit is run is more important than which bit is run. OptiDrill coupled drilling optimisation ML models in the drilling advisory system will enable drillers to reach cost-effectively greater depths and higher temperatures on all types of geological formations for geothermal well drilling.
The OptiDrill project’s technical partners met for the technology transfer and synergy realisation of the two projects GeoDrill and OptiDrill, at IEG Bochum, Fraunhofer, Germany,
