This paper concentrates on ROP estimation using bit type and its properties, mud type and mud viscosity, formation parameters such as rock strength, formation drillability, and formation abrasiveness, and some critical drilling equipment operational parameters such as pump pressure, WOB, and rotary speed based on the previous drilled wells data with the ELM and USA model.

Deeper drilling in the crystallized rockformation has faced many challenges such as greater hardness [4], poor formation drillability [5], elevated temperatures [6], higher pressures, and higher costs [7].
Advantages include dimensional stability an ultrasmooth surface, enhanced drillability, high interconnect density and process capabilities.
