Initial Well Planning

Description:

Define basic drilling and well completion requirements based on reservoir management objectives. Identify critical logistical issues and HSE considerations. Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: review an initial well proposal and identify key drilling and completion objectives, gather and evaluate offset data and other information pertinent to the well objectives, document and evaluate indicators of potential drilling hazards and/or HSE risks, identify appropriate methods for predicting pore pressures, fracture pressures, and subsurface temperatures, and plot predicted pressures and temperatures versus depth, determine formation fluids to be encountered and potential contaminants, outline critical issues relating to surface location, including those related to logistics, safety and environmental protection and generate a budget-level estimate of dry-hole and total well costs.
