Take a Peek: Drilling Operations_Look Inside
This book focuses on improving drilling operations by managing barriers (both preventative and mitigation) barriers to risk events. In Chapter 1, the basic principles of risk management are described from identification of risks to creating barriers (people, process/procedures and equipment) for identified risks as well as steps to help barrier creation. Chapter 2 describes the process of drilling optimization: reviewing non productive events from offset wells or other drilling campaign, categorizing non-productive time events into those that increase “drilling time” and those extend “flat time” and barriers to be put in place to optimize drilling operations. Chapters 3 to 13 focus on common non-productive time events for example loss circulation, well control etc. that lead to down-time in drilling operations and barriers to the risk events as well as monitoring/control barrier for example torque and drag. Useful drilling calculations are highlighted in Chapter 14. Chapter 15 focuses on other continuous improvement opportunities that are not covered in Chapters 2 to 13.
The primary objectives of this book are three fold: 1. To develop a working knowledge of the mud motor 2. To develop procedures and guidelines so that mud motor can be used efficiently within the performance envelop and 3. To develop a clear understanding of the operating principle so that the drilling system can be optimized. Illustrative examples are provided as and when appropriate. Throughout the book we have maintained the engineering perspective related to well engineering aspects.
