Weatherford International plc. has licensed the Ikon Science RokDoc RT™ software system to support its global rig-based real-time Pore Pressure team.
The RokDoc RT system provides critical modelling tools that allow the Pore Pressure Specialists to recalibrate the well plan to the actual formation characteristics and boundaries that have been encountered during Pore Pressure while Drilling (PPwD).
Monitoring real-time PPwD is a fast-growing activity as offshore operators around the globe increase their investment in risk management and risk mitigation for deep and ultra-deep offshore drilling. Pore pressure related incidents account for more than 40 percent of all non-productive time (NPT) during drilling operations.
