The American Association of Drilling Engineers (AADE) has published a new technical paper discussing three new OFITE products and a pilot program to test the system in a real-world environment. The OFITE Automated System (OASys) was deployed on an active land drilling rig deployed on multiple multi-well pads, over a six-month period. The AADE paper describes the system and shares data and results, discusses inline and near line measurement of the rheological profile, and shares lessons learned and thoughts on future developments.

OFITE OASys is an innovative solution for the real-time measurement and reporting of drilling fluid properties. All three instruments included in OASys sit on the rig where they can sample the drilling fluid directly. The measurements are then sent to the rig data information system where it is used for simple real time calculations for predicting hole cleaning efficiency and ECD at total depth. This data is then available to be viewed through the rig data information system by the Driller and other personnel at the wellsite as well as remotely via the internet or smart phone apps.
