This reveals enhanced details for geological, petrophysical and geomechanical interpretation to uncover subtle variations in the subsurface caused by stratigraphic or structural properties that impact wellbore stability.
Rather than extending a single casing string to the top of the wellbore, the technology enables suspending the liner below the ground.
VAALCO plans to spud the Etame 9P appraisal wellbore first, followed back-to-back with the Etame 9H development well.
DrillScan will operate as part of H and P Technologies, H and P's dedicated business entity focussed on developing advanced technologies and directional drilling automation solutions to help customers achieve greater reliability involving wellbore quality, accuracy and performance.
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- The National Iranian Drilling Company (NIDC) has successfully carried out the deepest casing operation at an offshore wellbore in the Persian Gulf.
Combining the company's heavy-duty rig fleet and its software will ultimatelyimprove the wellbore's quality, Lindsay said.
It was decided that section milling through two casing strings out to sound casing/formation would deliver a final seal in the wellbore to allow for permanent abandonment.
Deployment of such techniques depends on several well parameters such as type of producing zone (oil or gas), depth of well, wellbore geometry, and temperature of the wellbore.
Vision iO's fish eye colour camera technology visually logs the whole well in one seamless high resolution image, providing a 185/360-deg view of the entire wellbore. This is achieved without switching from front to lateral view, supported by a large internal 128 GB storage capacity - allowing 24 hours continuous recording.
Wellbore instability is common in the process of shale formation drilling and completion.
The finite element method is used to analyze the wellbore, casing, and formation as a whole and to establish the wellbore and formation temperature field calculation model at home.
