Underbalanced Drilling Limits and Extremes

The present crude oil and natural gas reservoirs around the world have depleted conventional production levels. To continue enhancing productivity for the remaining mature reservoirs, drilling decision-makers could no longer rely on traditional balanced or overbalanced methods of drilling. Derived from conventional air drilling, underbalanced drilling is increasingly necessary to meet today’s energy and drilling needs. While more costly and extreme, underbalanced drilling can minimize pressure within the formation, increase drilling rate of penetration, reduce formation damage and lost circulation, making mature reservoirs once again viable and more productive. To further explain this essential drilling procedure, Bill Rehm, an experienced legend in drilling along with his co-editors, has compiled a handbook perfect for the drilling supervisor. Underbalanced Drilling: Limits and Extremes, written under the auspices of the IADC Technical Publications Committee, contain many great features and contributions including: Real case studies shared by major service companies to give the reader guidelines on what might happen in actual operations Questions and answers at the end of the chapters for upcoming engineers to test their knowledge Common procedures, typical and special equipment involved, and most importantly, the limits and challenges that still surround this technology

This concise technical handbook, written to aid drilling engineers and drilling supervisors in underbalanced drilling (UBD) operations, includes detailed calculations. In fact, readers can easily code the mathematical models presented in this book and build their own UBD simulators in spreadsheet programs. Guo and Ghalambor cover much needed information on the applications for drilling water wells, mine boreholes, geotechnical boreholes, and oil and gas recovery wells by providing illustrative examples throughout the text. Further, they include a complete set of

Underbalanced drilling is experiencing growth at a rate that rivals that of horizontal drilling in the mid-1980s and coiled-tubing drilling in the 1990s. Problems remain, however, for applying underbalanced drilling in a wider range of geological settings and drilling environments. This report addresses developments under this DOE project to develop products aimed at overcoming these problems. During Phase I of the DOE project, market analyses showed that up to 12,000 wells per year (i.e., 30% of all wells) will be

Underbalanced Drilling is not a new concept but its utilization has started within the last few years. It has now emerged as a first thought drilling in the regions with complex, lower quality reservoirs or existing depleted fields. Applications of Underbalanced Drilling technologies have reached significant levels of acceptance throughout the world. The purpose of this book is to critically review the operation of underbalanced drilling using coiled tubing.

In underbalanced drilling operations, the pressure of the drilling fluid in the borehole is intentionally maintained below the formation pore fluid pressure, in the openhole section of the well. This CD-ROM contains the full text of the massive manual which describes the different techniques that can be used to generate underbalanced conditions while drilling. The benefits of drilling underbalanced, which can be considerable in terms of reduced drilling cost and increased productivity, are discussed. Special equipment and procedures, as well

Underbalanced drilling is experiencing growth at a rate that rivals that of horizontal drilling in the mid-1980s. Problems remain, however, for applying underbalanced drilling in a wider range of geological settings and drilling environments. This report addresses the development and testing of two products designed to advance the application of underbalanced drilling techniques. A user-friendly foam fluid hydraulics model (FOAM) was developed for a PC Windows environment. The program predicts pressure and flow characteristics of foam fluids used in
