Industry's 1st Real-Time Drilling Digital Twin

Lateral vibrations of the BHA
Like many other companies, last year was a time to reset, adjust, or rework. During that time MindMesh was very busy, working on something that can change an industry. 

Introducing the industry's 1st Real-Time Digital Twin to Predict Drilling Dysfunctions. Moving to the next level from static to true dynamic analysis that everybody can use. 

How? With data-driven simulation and predictive analytics. RiMo’s Real-Time Digital Twin predicts drilling mechanics and drilling dysfunctions in real-time. In other words, we have taken the Time Domain Analysis method to the next level for real-time operations. This makes efficiency and maximizes cost saving, it is a truly perspective tool for our industry.

Going further into the process

Here is how we do it:

  • The digital twin uses real-time surface data as input and drillstring data to predict downhole drilling dynamics responses. 
  • The drill string, bottom hole assembly, and drill bit mechanics are utilized from planning. 
  • The workflow is built to automatically recognize drilling rig states (rotary or slide drilling) and connection makeup to start and stop the predictive model. 
  • The twin produces quantifiable drilling dynamics like shock and vibration, downhole MSE, penetration rate, etc., in real-time.
  • The RiMo platform is built to seamlessly go through multiple workflows from planning, real-time digital twin, and post-job analytics.


What is the outcome? RiMo Insights

  • RiMo predicts downhole MSE
  • RiMo Predicts ROP
  • RiMo predicts lateral vibration, axial vibration, and torsional vibration
  • RiMo provides virtual drill-off test

This is just a first look; RiMo Real-time Digital Twin offers much more insight for the drill pipe. These particular insights are from a complete physics dynamic model with rock cutting model. Pre-planning & post-analytics workflow building within our RiMo software helps to provide accurate data insights.
