Shell's Innovations Today are Shaping the Wells of Tomorrow
If oil and gas companies are going to provide the energy that the world needs, they will have to drill a lot of wells. Some of those wells will sorely test Shell’s drilling and completion capabilities.
Crafting a single well is a complex engineering achievement. Developing a project with thousands of wells would be impossible for Shell’s engineers without the smartest, most effective technologies and the collaboration needed to develop these technologies.
Whether replacing manual drilling with automation, or remotely boosting and monitoring the performance of a well, Shell’s creative engineers are at the core of well manufacturing.
One of the innovations the engineers at Shell have developed is DART: Shell’s Drilling Automation and Remote Technology. This technology enables Shell’s engineers to simultaneously manage multiple rigs, working together even when hundreds of kilometers apart.
The latest technology developed by Shell’s engineers for resource-intensive plays goes even further. The newly developed well manufacturing system will deploy highly automated rigs and central control to enable the mass production of wells faster than ever before.
Nearly 1,900 wells engineers, well completion and wells intervention engineers work together with partners across the globe to shape the future of tomorrow’s wells - today.
