Well Construction

Tuesday, 17 October
Room 212 A-B
Technical Session
Today’s overall well construction phase is encountering more challenges, especially in environments such as deepwater where new technologies are continuously being adapted to optimize the process and minimize the risk of encountering those challenges. This session provides an overview of how technologies such as MPD is used during drilling and cementing in a deepwater application, advancements in open hole whipstock technology and an operability study for MODUs. Standards and guidelines are also discussed, in the field of PDC bits, a casing design load case for shut in after worst case discharge, and geothermal casing recommendations.
