As part of Phase 2 of the construction plan for Yury Korchagin field, the company has completed the fourth well at the wellhead platform with a bottom hole 6,390 meters deep and a horizontal section 4,276 meters long.
'Logging while Drilling' technology with real-time evaluation was used to successfully drill the horizontal section.
Here three critical loads at the starting point of the horizontal section are defined, including minimum axial force [F.sub.hs.sup.l], maximum axial force [F.sub.hs.sup.u], and maximum torque [M.sub.Ths], under which the constraint conditions for tubular strings in vertical-build wellbore are just satisfied.
The heat exchange tube was virtually divided into 11 cells along the longitudinal direction of the tube, 3 cells for the upper horizontal section, 5 for the vertical section, and 3 for the lower horizontal section.
Over this period the trend in most major resource plays has been to increase the length of the horizontal section in order to increase well productivity.
The technique uses a solid propellant, sent down the hole, which undergoes controlled deflagration shortly after shape charges perforate the horizontal section of the casing.
A slanted and fully cored pilot hole will be drilled through the Qawasim reservoir and followed by the drilling of a 700 m horizontal section. The well will be the first horizontal well drilled by Dana Gas Egypt, and one of very few drilled in the onshore Nile Delta to date.
Drilling operations at the Oyo-8 well, which features a vertical and a horizontal section, started in June 2014.
The well is then lined and water, sand and chemicals are forced at high pressure along the horizontal section to split the shale and release the gas.
For a politician, and a leading one at that, to call for any part of the UK to be fracked shows a complete ignorance of what the process involves; above ground is bad enough with complete disturbance of the surroundings and the creation of a sort of hell for the local residents, below ground the fracking process involves boring down a considerable distance into the shale, then for a substantial distance horizontally forcing a mixture of water, sand and chemicals down the borehole and along the horizontal section, at great pressure, to split the shale and release the gas.
In PEL 218 (Beach Energy Ltd (Beach) 70% and operator, Chevron Australia Exploration 1 Pty Ltd (Chevron) 30%), the second horizontal well to be drilled in the Nappamerri Trough, Boston-3, reached total depth on 25 November 2013 after drilling approximately 1,000 metres of horizontal section in the Murteree Shale.
Horizontal section of OCT showed hyper-reflecting retinal surface with underlying hyporeflecting shadow due to the dense fibrous tissue and a hyperreflecting band due to ERM.
Drilling of the horizontal section will continue for another 600-700 meters after which the joint venture will decide on whether to conduct a production test.
With the application of a powerful electric current, holes are made along the horizontal section so that water at very high pressure can be pumped out to create fissures in the shale formations which in turn facilitate the flow of gases toward the horizontal pipes - to be collected on the surface for storage.
According to subsequent analysis of the data, the water comes from a system of fractures located at the far end of the 927-metre (3,041-feet) horizontal section. There are indications that the fracture system has limited volumes of water so the partners are now carrying out further tests in an attempt to pump out the water.
