In oilfield wells, while drilling for several kilometers below surface, high temperature damages the drilling tools. This costs money and time for tripping operations to change the damaged tool. Exist- ing temperature mitigation techniques has several drawbacks including a long response time, analogue signal issues and human intervention. In this work, we empower the down- hole tools with a coordination mech- anism to mitigate high temperature in soft real time by controlling a down-hole actuator through a voting process. The tools are represented by agents that control the sensors and actuators embedded in these tools. To implement the proposed system properly, a model of the drilling do- main is constructed with all drilling mechanics and parameters, along with the well trajectory and temperature equations taken into consider- ation. The proposed model is implemented and tested using AgentOil, a multi-agent-based simulation tool, and the results are evaluated. Fur- thermore, the requirements of a real-time temperature mitigation system for Oil&Gas drilling operations are identified and the constraints of such systems are analyzed.
