Well Planning 2 Featured Image

Well Planning 2

Identify, monitor and evaluate drilling, workover, stimulation and well servicing proposals and activities in the context of optimizing the overall reservoir exploitation scheme. Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to contribute to the well planning process by understanding the reservoir engineering aspects of the proposed work and having a knowledge of drilling, workover and well servicing fundamentals, as well as work with the geologist and the drilling engineer to select well locations, target depths and casing points.

Well Planning

Introduces the drilling procedure and provides a clear "blueprint" for the safe, efficient drilling of a well. Integrates the mud, casing, bit, cementing and safety programs. Presents an understanding of how a well proposal is initiated and justified economically.

Initial Well Planning Featured Image

Initial Well Planning

Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: review an initial well proposal and identify key drilling and completion objectives, gather and evaluate offset data and other information pertinent to the well objectives, document and evaluate indicators of potential drilling hazards and/or HSE risks, identify appropriate methods for predicting pore pressures, fracture pressures, and subsurface temperatures, and plot predicted pressures and temperatures versus depth, determine formation fluids to be encountered and potential contaminants, outline critical issues relating to surface location, including those related to logistics, safety and environmental protection and generate a budget-level estimate of dry-hole and total well costs.

Drilling Program Planning and Implementation Featured Image

Drilling Program Planning and Implementation

Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: outline mud system specifications for individual hole sections based on well conditions and drilling objectives, establish basic well control requirements, specify circulating system requirements and evaluate hydraulics practices based on offset well performance, review offset bit performance as a basis for developing bit selection criteria for a new well, provide general recommendations for the drill string configuration and design of the bottomhole assembly, and review rig specifications and capabilities in the context of drilling program requirements. ​This webinar is categorized under the Drilling discipline.

Well Completion Design Featured Image

Well Completion Design

Select the appropriate tubing and accessories for completing wells in keeping with the production method required for the reservoir, and to facilitate future workover, servicing and stimulation work.Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to select the proper sizes and grades of tubulars to maintain the integrity of the wellbore and handle anticipated production, as well as select the downhole casing and tubing accessories needed to optimize production and future well work.

Updated NORSOK Standard D-010 Featured Image

Updated NORSOK Standard D-010

This webinar purpose is to give a first hand update on the NORSOK D-010 “official name” new version. We will discuss the areas that were updates, changed and deleted. We will also discuss the overall impacts to our existing potential operations. We will discuss the latest regulatory responses and what to expect with the publications alignment with other industry standards.

Engineered Well Design: From Spud to Abandonment

This talk is designed to discuss and explain modern well design methods required throughout the life of a well from spud to abandonment, including well integrity and well control issues. The talk will discuss technical and non-technical factor factors involved in well design including regulatory requirements, the concept of pressure vessel, how to establish and calculate casing properties from the various industry standards ( API and ISO) and how to establish the correct casing shoe strength from well integrity tests. The concept of kick tolerance (swabbed and drilling kicks) will be reviewed from both a well design aspect and a well control aspect. A review of current well design methods will be made including the discussion of burst, collapse and tension criteria for each casing string. A review of the various elements that make up the well design document (eg service loads, well completion) for a typical onshore and offshore well will also be made. Presented by Dr. Hussain Rabia Well integrity will be reviewed in terms of zonal isolation, role of cement, number of barriers and testing of barriers including inflow testing. The importance and proper procedure for carrying out inflow testing will be made. Finally the importance of engineering the supension and abandonment of wells will be discussed using current regulatory requirements.

Blowout Prevention and Relief Well Planning for the Wheatstone Big-Bore Gas Well Project Featured Image

Blowout Prevention and Relief Well Planning for the Wheatstone Big-Bore Gas Well Project

This paper chronicles the full extent of the engineering and operational planning performed to ensure that no uncontrolled hydrocarbon releases occurred during the execution of the Wheatstone Project's subsea big-bore gas wells and, if a blowout were to occur, that the response to such an unprecedented event would be sufficient and robust. Covered in the paper are (1) reservoir deliverability modeling, (2) dynamic kill modeling, (3) gas plume modeling, (4) relief well trajectory and mooring planning, (5) pilot hole execution planning, (6) a newly applied LWD technology for sensing resistivity vertically below the drill bit and (7) a discussion of future research that has been identified as necessary to better define the fluid injectivity capabilities of subsea relief wells.
