Realtime PPFG (Pore Pressure/Fracture Gradient) analysis, interpretation and monitoring service is performed during drilling operations. Service can be delivered at the rig site and remotely. Performing real-time (RT) PPFG service can be very impactful on drilling operations; improving drilling performance, reducing non-productive time (NPT) and the potential to avoid health, safety, and environment (HSE) events. Since the arrival of COVID-19, a trend of operators seeking to minimize the spread and chance of having a COVID-19 outbreak onboard drilling rigs, compounded by a longer standing initiative to reduce their overall rig footprint. This trend has not only limited global RT PPFG opportunities but has also restricted the efficacy of this type of service delivery. In the following presentation I will discuss and seek feedback from clients as well as feedback and input from fellow RT PPFG technical analysts who’ve experienced this challenging trend. Results will be presented quantifying pros and cons of rig site versus remote and success cases. Finally, the overall impact, level of operator’s satisfaction, insight into best practices going forward and other lessons learned will be shared.
