Directional Drilling & Drillstring Mechanics – Norway Stavanger – 7/8 November 2017

7 November 2017/8 November 2017

In collaboration with Ridge

 

Course Overview

Directional Drilling and This two-day school introduces attendees to industry best practices associated with Directional Drilling and Drill String Mechanics. The aim of the course is to provide information on the design and application of bottom hole assemblies that use rotary steerable and steerable motor systems to achieve Drill String Mechanics the directional objectives set for the well. The course will also provide a thorough understanding of how the design of the entire drill string can impact the loads applied at the drill bit, as well as how operational efficiency can be increased by reducing the risk of drill string fatigue life and casing wear. A combination of instruction, exercises, discussion of real case histories, and hands-on access to “state of the art” advanced simulation software will be used to engage participants and ensure improved understanding of the various issues.

Target Audience

This course is designed for drilling engineers with 3 – 10 years’ practical experience of well design and drilling operations. It is expected that most of the attendees will come from the following job roles:

Operating Oil Companies

  • Drilling Engineers
  • Drilling Managers

Service Companies

  • Drilling Optimisation Engineers
  • Drilling Applications Engineers

Course Objectives 

The objective of the class is to reinforce your knowledge of Drill String Mechanics and Directional Drilling by using advanced technologies and real case studies. After completing this course attendees should be able to:

  • Describe the main components used in directional drilling bottom hole assemblies (BHA)
  • Understand how it is possible to model BHA behavior and rock interaction to predict directional performance
  • Determine what realistic sensitivities should be applied in the models to understand the risks and anticipate potential problems
  • Perform local dog leg analysis to enable trajectory re-construction and tortuosity assessment to assure successful casing and liner deployment
  • Explain the theoretical background to torque and drag modelling
  • Understand the causes and consequences for performance of sinusoidal and helical buckling in the drill string
  • Predict the degree of casing wear generated by drilling operations
  • Identify how casing centralization can be improved to ensure proper cementation without compromising the ability to reach total depth
