As well construction process takes place, the cost per day for such operations are significant and can have a great impact for the final overall project economics. It is also of great importance of the subsurface data gathering and analysis. With the enchantments observed in regards of LWD technology, it has become of great importance not on the type but speed of the information acquired in Real time. Beyond the obvious benefits related to flat times reduction (Telemetry time), this presentation aims to provide an update of the Wired pipe Technology and ways to benefits from the bandwidth available in real time.
With WDP systems all downhole MWD and LWD data is been sent uphole to surface in real time despite the lack of mud flow, in other words the data transmission is continued independent of the mudflow. Some positive feedback from the use of the system has been:

In summary there are many tangible benefits for subsurface groups from WDP data. Examples will be shown where the data has been released.


Jesus graduated from Monterrey Tech in late 1996 and obtained a Bachelor’s of Science of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. He has over 18 years of experience in the industry, most of which relate to the well construction process. His career started as MWD/LWD/DD operator with Schlumberger and eventually held some management roles. Late in 2008, he became Director of Operations for NOV IntelliServ and managed several installations over the years. Early in 2015, he started as Business Development manager for IntelliServ. His experience in well construction process include the regions of US Land, Gulf of Mexico, Latin America, North Sea and North Africa.
