Superior Drilling Optimization and Control

ExxonMobil DAS™ is an automation package consisting of advanced optimization and control algorithms formed in a partnership between Pason and ExxonMobil Upstream Research Company.

Real Record-Breaking Results

Record-breaking performance seen in the first 50 rig installations including numerous pacesetter wells.

Features

Maximizes ROP
  • Dynamically changes weight-on-bit (WOB) to maximize rate of penetration (ROP) and bit life in a constantly changing drilling environment
Mitigates Stick Slip
  • Provides real-time stick slip indicators to the rig and the office using an advanced software model from ExxonMobil
  • Automatically manages WOB to reduce stick slip severity when it exceeds a safe operating threshold
  • Resumes ROP optimization once stick slip has been mitigated
Optimizes Drilling Energy
  • Only allows energy into the system (WOB) if it results in improved ROP, resulting in improved
    bit condition
  • Reduces WOB where there are no ROP gains which significantly extends bit life and decreases wear and tear on equipment
  • Extends life of the mud motor
Superior AutoDriller Control
  • Smooth payout of the drill line at high ROPs with tight control to differential pressure
    and WOB
  • Automatically adjusts tuning parameters based on drilling rig dynamics
  • Increased accuracy to plan through two sliding modes for holding toolface (smooth toolface
    control) or adjusting toolface (aggressive steering mode)
