observed. The R2 value is 0.71, 0.94, 0.96 and 0.96 for the 20,000 lb, 30,000 lb, 40,000 lb and 50,000 lb, respectively. All the
curves have a similar pattern showing three main regions: (1) High DSE and low ROP: inefficient drilling, on the left side of
the plot; (2) Low DSE and high ROP: efficient drilling, on the right side of the plot; (3) A transition zone from region 1 to
region 2 in between these two regions.
DSE vs. ROP, for different HSI: Fig. 3 shows DSE vs. ROP again, but this time the data is grouped according to the
HSI. The WOB curves are kept on the plot to make a connection with Fig. 2. Fig. 3 shows that all the data with HSI between
0.5 hp/in2 and 1.7 hp/in2 are located on the inefficient drilling region (Region 1: high DSE and low ROP) for their particular
WOB. All the data with HSI between 5.8 hp/in2 and 7.9 hp/in2 are on the efficient drilling region (Region 2: low DSE and
high ROP). The data with HSI between 1.8 hp/in2 and 5.7 hp/in2 are in the transitio...
