Is MSE a well-established concept?
- Yes. The concept was originally published in “The Concept of Specific Energy in Rock Drilling” by Teale in 1965 and is now widely used in drilling optimization. Service companies and operators routinely use MSE to help study and improve drilling efficiency.
- The process used by Drill2Frac in preparing, editing and correcting the input data, the amount of analyst time, and the proprietary software used is new, resulting in a much more robust and reliable calculation of MSE than was traditionally used for drilling efficiency studies.
