Well Placement Fundamentals

4.5 Average client rating (based on 61 attendee reviews)

The main purpose of high angle and horizontal wells is to maximize reservoir contact and enhance well productivity. To plan and construct such wells requires real-time collaboration between geologists (who need quality formation evaluation data), drillers (who require considerable input from the geologists), and petrophysicists (who interpret the formation evaluation data during the drilling process in order to optimize well placement). This process is generally facilitated by the well placement coordinator.

The goal of this course will be to introduce the concept of geological well placement (geosteering) and provide the knowledge of the processes and techniques that can be used to successfully place high angle and horizontal wells, using geological and petrophysical data in real-time during drilling. Various technologies involved in directional drilling, measurement, and formation evaluation while drilling will be reviewed. The three different methods used to geologically place horizontal wells will be introduced and the applications will be discussed.

    Day 1

    Geological Well Placement and Reservoir Geology

    • Basic concepts and application
    • Technologies, processes, and methods
    • Essential elements of reservoir geology
    • Structural features   

    The first day of this course will focus on geological well placement and reservoir geology.  Participants will learn about the basic concepts and application of well placement.  Technologies, processes, and three complementary methods of geological well placement will be discussed.  The day will continue with a discussion over the essential elements of reservoir geology.  Structural features important to well placement will be covered using practical examples.

    Day 2

    Directional Drilling and Measurement While Drilling (MWD)

    • Direction drilling concepts
    • MWD position and drilling-related data
    • MWD techniques and tools       

    Day two will cover directional drilling and MWD.  Participants will learn about direction drilling concepts, the process of planning a well, and the technologies and techniques involved in controlling the location of a wellbore.  Acquiring position and drilling related data while drilling will be covered.  MWD techniques and tools will also be discussed.  

    Day 3

    Formation Evaluation and Logging While Drilling (LWD)

    • LWD tools and techniques
    • Formation evaluation techniques
    • Practical examples     

    The focus of day three will be formation evaluation and LWD.  LWD tools and techniques will be covered.  Formation evaluation measurements including gamma-ray, porosity, resistivity, and other measurements made while drilling and their use will be discussed.  Attendees will also receive practical examples that will explore the influence of LWD measurements on high angle wells.

    Day 4

    Applications of LWD Measurements

    • Influence of LWD on high angle wells
    • Practical examples
    • LWD images, acquisition, and application  

    Application of LWD measurements will be the focus of day four.  Participants will learn about the influence of LWD measurement on high angle wells.  Practical examples will be given to review the behavior of LWD measurements at high angles.  Finally, LWD images, their acquisition and application in the well placement process will be covered.

    Day 5

    Applying Well Placement Methods

    • Model-compare-update method
    • Incorporating real-time dip analysis
    • Remote boundary detection   

    On the last day, participant will learn about applying well placement methods.  Practical well placement using the model-compare-update approach using modeling log responses will be covered.  Participants will learn how to incorporate real-time dip analysis into well placement and will get an introduction to remote boundary detection.  The day will end with case studies illustrating the use of the three well placement methods. 

  • Audience

    This course is aimed toward members of multi-disciplinary asset teams of operating companies comprising mainly of drilling engineers, reservoir engineers, and geoscientists who need to make decisions regarding the applicability and benefits of implementing a geological well placement process for drilling horizontal and high-angle wellbores.

  • Prerequisites

    Participants should have either a Geoscience or an Engineering degree.

  • Location

    Kuala Lumpur

    Kuala Lumpur is the capital and largest city of Malaysia.

    Beginning in the 1990s, the city has played host to many international sporting, political and cultural events including the 1998 Commonwealth Games and the Formula One World Championship. In addition, Kuala Lumpur is home to the tallest twin buildings in the world, the Petronas Twin Towers.

    Protected by the Titiwangsa Mountains in the east and Indonesia's Sumatra Island in the west, Kuala Lumpur has a tropical rainforest climate which is warm and sunny, along with abundant rainfall, especially during the northeast monsoon season from October to March.

    The major tourist destinations in Kuala Lumpur include the Dataran Merdeka (the Independence Square), the House of Parliament, the Istana Budaya, the Istana Negara (National Palace), the Kuala Lumpur Tower, the Muzium Negara (National Museum), the Putra World Trade Centre, the Tugu Negara (National Monument) and mosques such as the Masjid Jamek, the Masjid Negara (National Mosque) and the Federal Territory Mosque.

    Other tourist attractions include the Aquaria KLCC, the Batu Caves, the Makam Pahlawan (National Mausoleum), the National Science Centre, Petaling Street, the Royal Selangor Pewter Visitor Centre, the Zoo Negara (National Zoo), and events such as Malay cultural centres, the Chinese cultural festivals at the Thean Hou Temple and the Thaipusam procession at the Sri Mahamariamman Temple. The Golden Triangle, the commercial hub of the city, contains the Petronas Twin Towers and has a distinctive nightlife. Trendy nightclubs, bars and lounges, such as the Beach Club, Espanda, the Hakka Republic Wine Bar & Restaurant, Hard Rock Cafe, the Luna Bar, Nuovo, Rum Jungle, the Thai Club, Zouk, and many others are located within and around Jalan P. Ramlee, Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Ampang.

    Hotels, from five-star to budget types, have cropped up everywhere to accommodate the influx of tourists each year. There are many hotels near Kuala Lumpur's entertainment and business districts.

    Kuala Lumpur alone has 66 shopping malls and it is the retail and fashion hub for Malaysia. Suria KLCC is one of Malaysia's premier shopping destinations due to its location beneath the Petronas Twin Towers.

    The Perdana Lake Gardens near the Malaysian Parliament building includes a Butterfly Park, Deer Park, Orchid Garden, Hibiscus Garden and Kuala Lumpur Bird Park, Southeast Asia's largest bird park.

    There are three forest reserves within the city namely the Bukit Nanas Forest Reserve in the city centre, the oldest gazetted forest reserve in the country, Bukit Sungai Putih Forest Reserve and Bukit Sungai Besi Forest Reserve. Bukit Nanas, in the heart of the city centre, is one of the oldest virgin forests in the world within a city. These residual forest areas are home to a number of fauna species particularly monkeys, tree shrews, squirrels and birds.

    Kuala Lumpur is a hub for cultural activities and events in Malaysia. Among the centres is the National Museum which is situated along the Mahameru Highway. Its collection comprises artifacts and paintings collected throughout the country. Kuala Lumpur also has an Islamic Arts Museum which houses more than seven thousand Islamic artefacts including rare exhibits as well as a library of Islamic art books. However, the museum's collection not only concentrate on works from the Middle East, the museum also puts the emphasis on Asia, with China and Southeast Asia especially well represented. This museum features some impressively decorated domes and large open exhibition spaces. It is located at Jalan Lembah Perdana next to the National Mosque.

    Kuala Lumpur is one of the host cities for the Formula One World Championship, the open-wheel auto racing A1 Grand Prix and the Motorcycle Grand Prix with races being held at Sepang International Circuit in the neighbouring state of Selangor, next to the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.
