Project Objectives

The primary objective of this project is to develop technology for real-time monitoring of the installation and performance during the service life of the deepwater wells. In this study, various technologies will be used to develop smart drilling mud and cementing slurry with enhanced sensing properties, so that it can be deployed for real time monitoring during installation and the entire service life of the deepwater well.
