Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes real-life case studies and exercises where participants will be engaged in a series of interactive small groups and class workshops. This course is designed to provide participants with an upto-date overview of ERD drilling and stuck pipe prevention. It covers the downhole forces including solid induced / formation collapse; the rock mechanics, mobile formation, fractured and faulted formation, naturally induced overpressured shale collapse, reactive formation, poor hole cleaning and tectonically stressed formation problem prevention; the cavings versus drilling cuttings covering rock strength and brittleness, effects of increasing inclination and differing BHA?s, borehole tortuosity data and interpretation, bridging and packing-off drilling fluids; the common causes of stuck; the various methods used in freeing differentially stuck pipe; and the drilling fluids optimization and selection of fluid type. During this interactive course, participants will learn the mechanical and wellbore geometry sticking and how and why it happens; the effects of hole size, inclination, mud weight and plastic; the warning signs when circulating, tripping in, tripping out, running casing, making connections and reaming; the prevention of stuck pipe and fishing for parted pipe; the drill-string failures; the milling operations and milling applications; and the secondary freeing procedures including procedures for spotting pills and handling accelerators.
