  • Combined Techniques Drill Through Tough Formations

    Oct 03, 2016

    As operators have moved into more challenging areas, conventional drilling systems have fallen short of reaching total depth (TD) efficiently, safely and economically. Service providers have responded by developing specialized technologies and techniques that enhance efficiency, safety and economics. Drilling with casing (DwC) and drilling with liner are among the specialized techniques that have emerged and are increasingly being deployed to overcome challenges encountered in mature fields, deepwater basins and wells with depleted or unstable intervals. Coupled with closed-loop drilling (CLD) systems and techniques such as managed-pressure drilling and underbalanced drilling (UBD), operators can navigate difficult wells and problem zones to reach reservoirs that would otherwise be inaccessible or economically unviable.
