Drilling Data Quality & Uncertainty

Drilling Data Quality and Uncertainty Description

SPE DSATS, WPTS and DUPTS joint Sub-Committee

A joint sub-committee was formed under the SPE Drilling Systems Automation Technical Section (DSATS), SPE Wellbore Positioning Technical Section (WPTS) and SPE Drilling Uncertainty Prediction Technical Section (DUPTS).

The mission of this sub-committee is to increase the awareness and understanding in the drilling community on how to describe drilling data quality and uncertainty.

This committee is lead by Eric Cayeux, Chief Scientist with NORCE in Norway


to collect a list of thoughts, experiences, ideas, etc. about improvement opportunities (so called pain points and user stories) in drilling augmentation – digitalization and automation. This list will be kept publicly available on https://dsabok.org. The “customer” for the list is any organization, group, company, individual, etc. who would like to become inspired about building a solution. This is a Sisyphean task.

Caveat emptor:

The list is a non-exhaustive, work in progress which is made available as information that may contain inaccuracies, be out of date, contain typographical errors or may not be applicable to user’s (customer’s) needs or circumstances. The contributors are not liable for any errors or omissions.
