Method for Maximizing Drilling Efficiency

Technology Area: Conventional Energy

Commercial Maturity: Concept

Abstract: This invention reduces the cost and improves the efficiency and safety of drilling by maximizing the rate of penetration (ROP) while minimizing mechanical-specific-energy (MSE), or the rate of energy use while drilling out a given volume of rock.
