Well Architecture and drilling practices to achieve well plans are critical in meeting AFE as well as exploitation goals. This course can help understand the essential aspects of well architecture and drilling in unconventional resource plays enabling asset team members to make better field development decisions. This course discusses some of the high angle lateral well issues and ties the drilling mechanics with the geoscience covered in previous weeks.
This course covers the necessary fundamentals of well architecture and drilling in shale plays. The class includes: best practices in survey and anti-collision; well design and pad drilling; overview of motors and rotary steerable systems; geosteering, MWD systems, and key LWD tools for unconventional lateral wells. BHA design & components, bit selection and optimization and drilling fluids; hydraulics, hole cleaning, wellbore integrity, torque and drag. Throughout the course, field examples and practical aspects are shown to reinforce the learning experience.
Surveys - concept of spatial relationship through accelerometers, magnetometers, and gyros. Environmental issues caused by magnetic field variations, metals, etc. Capturing and validating static surveys; understanding of EOU and traveling cylinder plots, and, anti-collisions practices.
HANDS-ON EXERCISE 1
Traveling Cylinder, Ellipse of Uncertainty and Anti-collision includes - concept of capturing and validating static surveys; un-derstanding of EOU and traveling cylinder plots, and, anti-collisions practices.
HANDS-ON EXERCISE 2
Well Design & Pad drilling includes - considerations in well design from lease line constraints to fracture wing length, to dog leg capabilities of tools. Pad drilling will tie in multiple wells, simultaneous operations, and address complications such as anti-collision caused by drilling wells so close to one another.
Development note: expand on field stress mapping as well, drainage area, parallel well issues like pressure communication (maybe zip fractures)
