Ultra-deep drilling system

To achieve the goal of drilling into the Earth’s Mantle, CDEX is developing high-strength and high-performance drill pipe, stronger than conventional drill pipe, and including additional advanced capabilities such as data transfer. CDEX is also studying and evaluating the complex dynamic motions of drill pipe that occur during operations. CDEX will use the results of these studies to establish a strength evaluation method and to develop software for automatic control and monitoring of the drill equipment. CDEX is also developing a drilling operation support system based on AI technology using surface drilling data.
