The Smart Slide System was developed to enhance efficiency of the drilling process and reduce friction in the lateral section by automating the rotational function of the drill string. Setting your neutral point is all it takes to ensure effective use of the Smart Slide system. The “Bump” function allows you to alter the neutral point of the pipe and take control of the toolface. The “Zero” function returns the pipe to the neutral position after the slide is complete. The simplistic interface provides ease of operation while the competitive price aligns with the client’s goals and requirements in the current marketplace.

Smart Drilling Technology

In response to the industry’s increasing demand for enhanced productivity in horizontal drilling, Canadian Global released the Smart Slide directional drilling system – cutting-edge technology designed as an auto reciprocation and alignment tool for top drives.

The Smart Slide System offers precise and autonomous functionality, effectively reciprocating and steering the drill pipe to minimize down-hole friction. This capability enables operators to reach desired depths with ease, thereby maximizing returns on their investments. Operators can take advantage of the customizable modes for slide control, allowing for software-driven operation that ensures consistent performance and eliminates human error.

Bump Function

Bump is used while the Smart Slide is in operation to change the neutral point.

Zero Function

Each time the operator wants to stop sliding, the top drive will always be commanded to go back to its neutral or zero position before coming to a complete stop.

Slide Function

The zero point slide is used to slide without oscillation. The quill position will be locked in this function. Just select a bump forward or reverse to adjust the quill angle to any position.

Advantages of Smart Slide Directional Drilling Software

Smart Slide is designed to be scalable and adaptable, allowing it to be used in a variety of drilling applications and wellbore conditions. As a result, it can be a valuable tool for drillers looking to increase productivity, reduce costs, and improve the overall efficiency and safety of their operations.

Real-time Monitoring: The software allows for real-time monitoring of the drilling process, providing up-to-date information on the orientation of the drill bit and the direction of drilling.

Reduced Downtime: By providing real time monitoring and control of the drilling process, top drive smart drilling software can help to reduce the amount of downtime required for manual adjustments and corrections. This can result in significant cost savings, especially on large or complex drilling projects.

Improved Accuracy: The software can be programmed to follow a specific drilling plan, ensuring that the drill bit stays on course and reaches the target accurately.

Increased Efficiency: By optimizing the drilling process, top drive directional drilling software can help to minimize the use of resources, such as drilling mud, casing, and other materials.

Better Safety: The software helps to reduce the risk of human error, which is a major safety concern in drilling operations.

Enhanced Data Management: The software can store and analyze data from the drilling process, allowing for better decision-making and improved planning of future drilling operations.
