Continuous Inclination Measurements and BHA Modeling Help Detect Microdoglegs https://www.drillscan.com/continuous-inclination-measurements-and-bha-modeling-help-detect-microdoglegs/ Mon, 11 Dec 2017 09:10:11 +0000 https://www.drillscan.com/?p=9979 Microdoglegs are a natural effect of any vertical or directional well that can explain a wide variety of downhole problems. A trajectory-prediction model able to calculate the inclination and azimuth approximately every 12 in. has been developed to estimate microdoglegs using standard surveys, bottomhole-assembly (BHA) data, and steering parameters. This new methodology combining downhole data measurements with drillstring-modeling analysis highlights the potential for drilling optimization and wellbore placement.

Wellbore Trajectory

Standard Surveys. Surveys are generally taken at an interval of every 95 ft, the length of one stand. While the general recommendation is to decrease the survey interval when building faster than 3°/100 ft, this is often neglected because there is no advantage seen in wellbore-positioning-uncertainty models.

The well path between each survey point typically is calculated using the minimum-curvature approach, which assumes a curve of equal angle along the surface of a sphere with only one radius in a 3D plane. Looking at the well as a whole, this approach appears logical and yields reasonable-looking trajectories; however, when examining more-frequent survey data, it becomes obvious how this method can mislead users to think that the well path is much smoother than it actually is. Continuous-survey measurements have enabled the industry to take a closer look at what is happening between survey points, in highlighting microdoglegs quite often undetected by standard surveys.

With the long-term price of a barrel of oil projected to hover around $50, all actors in the oil and gas industry have been forced to change or adapt their processes to try to reduce costs and sustain profitability. Accompanying the downturn, the oil and gas industry has entered a new era of digitalization, introducing new buzzwords to our industry such as artificial intelligence, digital twin, machine learning, neural network, industrial Internet of Things, and cloud computing, just to name a few. The industry has already begun its transition, going from more-­traditional mechanized systems in the hands of humans to more-computer-controlled drilling systems that will eventually lead to full drilling automation…

The invaluable added value of Stiff Torque and Drag and Buckling modeling for Casing Wear applications

DrillScan is coming on the market with a new Casing Wear Service and software.
Our model couples the benefits of our 3D detailed rigid calculation of the contact forces along with full meshing of the casing.
Effects of doglegs, DP range, multiple size of tool joints… Can be accurately estimated to simulate precise casing wear locations and avoid excessive safety factors.

This video, created from WellScan software, shows a typical case study for unconventional wells. The software simulates the drilling rotary phase along the lateral, where one sees first the vertical phase with no apparent buckling, then the curve with strong side forces and bending stress along the pipe, and at last the lateral section where buckling occurs in a washout section. Note the effect of WOB on buckling, going from 20 to 45klbs. WellScan software is the only commercial software able to run post buckling analysis in 3D wells without using FEA analysis (computation time greatly reduced!).

Un partenariat public-privé pour simuler les forages pétroliers

Article paru sur Acteurs de l’Economie/La Tribune – le 04/06/2017

Un laboratoire de recherche lyonnais et la société DrillScan s’associent pour simuler les comportements dynamiques lors de forages pétrolier et géothermique. Un outil au service de l’industrie de l’extraction.

DrillScan et le Laboratoire de Mécanique des Contacts et des Structures (LaMCoS) réunissent leur compétence dans un partenariat public-privé. L’objectif du nouveau laboratoire commun “DrilLab” est de mieux comprendre les phénomènes vibratoires à l’œuvre lors du forage de puits, et de développer un logiciel d’analyse et simulation permettant leur optimisation.

Malaysia’s Oil & Gas show has been running since 1987 and today it has more attendees and more exhibiting companies than any other show in the region. Between 2011 and 2015 the number of exhibitors increased by 44% and the number of attendees increased 48%. The growth in the number of attendees is in part a consequence of Malaysia becoming the petroleum industries regional centre. The growth in the number of exhibitors is in part because 92% of exhibiting companies come back year after year, with many believing it’s the best show they’ve partaken.
