Well Construction Automation is gradually becoming more prominent in oil & gas industry. It encompasses the application of digital technology in all aspects of well drilling and completion (i.e., automatic well design, digitalization of downhole tools & surface equipment, remote monitoring, real time data transmission, and robotic rig systems). This paper presents a new workflow for Automatic Well Design using integrated cloud software and a mere mouse click.

The software tool, Oliasoft WellDesign, is used to demonstrate the Automatic Well Design workflow. Utilizing networks and cloud computers for data storage and collaboration offering Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) and enabling full automation where whole or parts of the software can be operated by other computers. The software GUI can be accessed via any modern web browser across all kinds of computers (Windows, Macs) and any other smart devices (tablets, phones).

Two automatic design workflows shall be illustrated in detail:

  1. Automatic Well Trajectories
  2. Automatic Casing Design
