Petrel Well Design

4.5 Average client rating (based on 53 attendee reviews)

This Course is based on Petrel 2015.1 release

This course is designed specifically for SIS drilling support to learn the well planning fundamentals and Petrel drilling workflows.

There are four main topics: offset well analysis, well design; well positioning and real-time operation.

The attendee is guided through the preparation stage for data used in well design. This includes project setup, data import and preparation. You will learn how to import trajectory and targets from third-party applications, such as EDM.

You will undertake well design exercises integrated all the elements of the well planning, from making offset well analysis using drilling risks; defining geological targets; building drillable well paths to intercept geological targets; do trajectory uncertainty analysis, create driller’s targets; perform anti-collision analysis, modify the path to avoid collision with nearby wells; finally generate report and plotting.

After the planning phase, you will learn how real-time data acquisitions are handled in Petrel.
