Business Impact: no drill pipe twist-off due to lack of shoulder engagment and/or torque. No casing/tubing leaks due to lack of seal or thread engagement. Ability to see & analyze any connection at a later date.
Technical Objectives: Verify shoulder connections and thread and seal engagement on various connections. Tailor sofware and communications offshore/onshore for oil companies. Develop connection verification database.
Methodology: Verifify shoulder engagement and torque on drill pipe. Verify complete thread and seal engagement and torque on casing and tubing in real time before going into the hole with-out any down time. Ability to see thread engagement
Deliverables: Good and bad made-up connection reports, graphs & pictures. Other to be determined.
