Well Construction Advancements

Tuesday, 4 October
362 A-C
Technical Session
This session focuses on the well construction process at different stages, such as making hole, placing cement, determining integrity of the set cement, and simulating the drilling processes. Furthermore, a broader view of drilling practices in Ultra-DW, highly depleted, and geothermal wells will be presented together with an evolution of the rigs used to drill these. Some of the challenges encountered during well construction in these wells are temperature and its estimation accuracy, narrow mud window, kick detection, high temperature mud rheology, and understanding bit wear. The papers will address advancements towards solving these issues.
