Shaping the future of wells today
Crafting a single well is a complex engineering achievement. Developing a project with thousands of wells would be impossible for our engineers without the smartest, most effective technologies and the collaboration needed to develop these technologies.
Whether replacing manual drilling with automation, or remotely boosting and monitoring the performance of a well, our creative engineers are at the core of well manufacturing.
One of the innovations our engineers have developed is DART: Shell’s Drilling Automation and Remote Technology. This technology enables our engineers to simultaneously manage multiple rigs, working together even when hundreds of kilometres apart.
The latest technology developed by our engineers for resource-intensive plays goes even further. The newly developed well manufacturing system will deploy highly automated rigs and central control to enable the mass production of wells faster than ever before.
Nearly 1,900 wells engineers, well completion and wells intervention engineers work together with partners across the globe to shape the future of tomorrow’s wells - today.
