Well Design Services
We can design your well electronically and remotely from your office. All that is required is your input data. No need to mobilise consultants at your offices or purchase expensive software that will only be used once or twice. We will do all that is necessary to produce a well design that complies with statutory requirements anywhere in the world.
- High pressure/high temperature wells, deep wells, wells across creeping salts can all be designed using our propriety software.
- We will also calculate the number of centralisers required and recommend which type to use.
- More importantly, our field experience will enable us to write a drilling programme showing how the casing should be run; equipment required and recommended casing running speeds.
Directional Well Planning
We can produce any type of well profile; decide kick off points, direction of multilateral wells. In particular we have the software to design horizontal wells, determine the landing angle (above or below 90 degrees) depending on the reservoir dip.
- Input data can be as little as surface location and target coordinates to more complex details such as multiple targets, designer wells, collision avoidance etc.
- More importantly, our field experience will enable us to write a drilling programme showing how the well should be drilled and which equipment to select, e.g. rotary steerable systems or just steerable systems.
Drillstring grades and weights will be determined including safety factors and MOPS. Length, weight and size of recommended drillcollars for each hole section will be provided.
Full well hydraulics will be calculated for each hole section including nozzle sizes and pump liner sizes.
Detailed cement calculations can be carried out for the entire well including recommended volumes of cement and water, pressures during the cementing operation, bumping operations, additives etc. A detailed cementing programme including pressure testing casing, details of required casing accessories will be provided. We will also calculate the number of centralisers required and recommend which type to use.
Wellbore Stability Services
If you are drilling deep wells, horizontal wells, multilateral wells or wells with potential loss circulation problems we can help you. We can calculate safe mud weights for any hole angle and set of drilling conditions. Drillbits Selection, AFE (well costing), Rig Selection, Pore Pressure interpretation services are also available.
