Attn DRILLING guys, I have a survey that will take less than one minute to complete and anonymous.
I would like to create 'swimlane' role specific work flow process with Driller/Asst Driller/Toolpusher/Drill Supv and I would appreciate the feedback from industry.

Good to hear that there is work being done on automation if influx detection. Once that has been proven the next step of circulating out the influx could, I believe, be relatively easily achieved. Both proven multiphase well control software and automated choke control systems are readily available and are already in use with managed pressure drilling operations. As for the discussion regarding the legal implications of assigning culpability and blame, the deepwater horizon case has certainly raised the issue but not sure if there ever was a clear outcome.
Be good to see some testing done on the system and maybe move to a fully automated well control system.
