• IADC Code Upgrade: Bit and BHA Forensics Using Rig-Based Photographic Documentation Practices  

    The paper referenced in this presentation establishes uniform, recommended industry practices for bit and bottom hole assembly (BHA) photo documentation. 

    Through effective field photo documentation and training to identify the causes, a team can modify parameters used in real time or make other immediate changes in the BHA or drilling system with a higher degree of confidence they will increase drill rate or extend bit and BHA life. The field documentation also provides the basis for more detailed post-drill assessment or extensive redesign if needed. The guidelines were compiled from the practices of multiple operators, bit manufacturers, and service companies.
