Preface Drilling engineering is a challenging discipline in the oil patch. It goes beyond what is found in textbooks. The technological advances in the past two decades have been very significant. These advances have allowed the oil industry worldwide to economically and successfully exploit oil and gas fields that may have not been possible before. The fundamentals of fluid mechanics and solid mechanics, along with the basic scientific concepts of chemistry, form the basis of drilling engineering. The rewards and successes of drilling projects are predicated on the ability of the drilling engineer who fully understands all the engineering aspects and equipment required to drill a usable hole at the lowest dollar per foot ($/ft), in vertical well drilling, or at the highest equivalent barrel of oil per foot (bbl/ft) in horizontal/multilateral well drilling. In the oil industry, it is common practice to assume that problems may be encountered during the drilling process of a well and can differ from one well to the other, even in the same area. The drilling engineer has the responsibility to be able to think beyond simply the engineering equations in combating some of these problems. He or she must anticipate drilling problems, devise solutions, and choose the best alternatives. They must be intuitive, must have common sense, and be able to think quickly and decisively. In this book, the authors have prepared illustrative examples and supplementary problems that hopefully will encourage the students to cultivate their creative thinking, develop confidence in reaching independently for what is needed to solve problems, and above all, energize their common sense to make wise decisions. The book is written for educating students in drilling engineering in a two-semester course series: Drilling I and Drilling II. It is also intended to serve as a reference to engineers in field operations. It is suggested that Drilling I cover the following chapters: chapter 1—Rotary Drilling for Oil and Natural Gas, Chapter 2—Drilling Fluids, chapter 3— Fluid Flow and Associated Pressures in the Rotary Rig Circulating System, chapter 4—Drill Bit Hydraulics, chapter 5—Transport of Drilled Cuttings, and chapter 6—Prevention and Control Mechanics of Well Blowouts; where Drilling II covers: chapter 7—Directional and Horizontal Well Drilling, chapter 8—Drill Bit Mechanics, chapter 9—Drill String Design, chapter 10—Drilling Problems and Solutions, chapter 11—Casing and Cementing Design, and Chapter 12—Well Planning in Drilling Engineering. It is recommended that non-conventional drilling techniques, which is not included in this text, such as under-balance drilling, slim hole drilling, coiled-tubing drilling casing drilling, etc., be given to students in Drilling II as special topics assignments. Acknowledgments The Authors would like to thank and acknowledge the following contributors: Tommy Warren George King James Lummus David Chen We also thank Peter Bern for his valuable review and contribution. Acknowledgements and thanks are also given to the following companies who have given permission to use different images of the tools: Halliburton, Baker Hughes, Smith International Inc., International Association of Drilling Contractors, Atwood Oceanics, and Fann Instrument Company. Finally, Professor Azar would like to thank Dr. Adam T.Bourgoynae Jr., who was instrumental in starting him on the road to success in drilling engineering.

Petroleum and natural gas still remain the single biggest resource for energy on earth. Even as alternative and renewable sources are developed, petroleum and natural gas continue to be, by far, the most used and, if engineered properly, the most cost-effective and efficient, source of energy on the planet. Drilling engineering is one of the most important links in the energy chain, being, after all, the science of getting the resources out of the ground for processing. Without drilling engineering, there would be no gasoline, jet fuel, and the myriad of other “have to have” products that people use all over the world every day. Following up on their previous books, also available from Wiley-Scrivener, the authors, two of the most well-respected, prolific, and progressive drilling engineers in the industry, offer this groundbreaking volume. They cover the basics tenets of drilling engineering, the most common problems that the drilling engineer faces day to day, and cutting-edge new technology and processes through their unique lens. Written to reflect the new, changing world that we live in, this fascinating new volume offers a treasure of knowledge for the veteran engineer, new hire, or student. This book is an excellent resource for petroleum engineering students, reservoir engineers, supervisors & managers, researchers and environmental engineers for planning every aspect of rig operations in the most sustainable, environmentally responsible manner, using the most up-to-date technological advancements in equipment and processes.

This book presents the fundamental principles of drilling en gineering, with the primary objective of making a good well using data that can be properly evaluated through geology, reservoir engineering, and management. It is written to assist the geologist, drilling engineer, reservoir engineer, and manager in performing their assignments. The topics are introduced at a level that should give a good basic understanding of the subject and encourage further investigation of specialized interests. Many organizations have separate departments, each per forming certain functions that can be done by several methods. The reentering of old areas, as the industry is doing today, particularly emphasizes the necessity of good holes, logs, casing design, and cement job. Proper planning and coordination can eliminate many mistakes, and I hope the topics discussed in this book will playa small part in the drilling of better wells. This book was developed using notes, comments, and ideas from a course I teach called "Drilling Engineering with Offshore Considerations." Some "rules of thumb" equations are used throughout, which have proven to be helpful when applied in the ix x / Preface proper perspective. The topics are presented in the proper order for carrying through the drilling of a well.

Drilling technology has advanced immensely in the past 20 years. Directional drilling, rotary steerable drilling and other smart downhole techniques and tools have progressed past the typical vertical and horizontal well, allowing drilling engineers to design wells of complex geometry and extract energy resources from remote, untapped places. While technology continues to excel, there is a growing need for multidisciplinary information to assist in the design and planning of complex wells. To answer this need, Robello Samuel, with the help of Xiushan Liu, releases a necessary reference titled Advanced Drilling Engineering. Samuel and Liu's volume covers full understanding of elaborate drilling processes and engineering well design aspects. Starting with well trajectory and wellbore positioning, they explain well-path planning for directional and extended-reach wells. Other vital topics include collision avoidance, checking for proximity between neighboring wells, downhole survey tools plus MWD/LWD and through bit logging, and intelligent smart well technology, including downhole monitoring tools.

The need for this book has arisen from demand for a current text from our students in Petroleum Engineering at Imperial College and from post-experience Short Course students. It is, however, hoped that the material will also be of more general use to practising petroleum engineers and those wishing for aa introduction into the specialist literature. The book is arranged to provide both background and overview into many facets of petroleum engineering, particularly as practised in the offshore environments of North West Europe. The material is largely based on the authors' experience as teachers and consultants and is supplemented by worked problems where they are believed to enhance understanding. The authors would like to express their sincere thanks and appreciation to all the people who have helped in the preparation of this book by technical comment and discussion and by giving permission to reproduce material. In particular we would like to thank our present colleagues and students at Imperial College and at ERC Energy Resource Consultants Ltd. for their stimulating company, Jill and Janel for typing seemingly endless manuscripts; Dan Smith at Graham and Trotman Ltd. for his perseverence and optimism; and Lesley and Joan for believing that one day things would return to normality. John S. Archer and Colin G. Wall 1986 ix Foreword Petroleum engineering has developed as an area of study only over the present century. It now provides the technical basis for the exploitation of petroleum fluids in subsurface sedimentary rock reservoirs.

Modern petroleum and petrotechnical engineering is increasingly challenging due to the inherently scarce and decreasing number of global petroleum resources. Exploiting these resources efficiently will require researchers, scientists, engineers and other practitioners to develop innovative mathematical solutions to serve as basis for new asset development designs. Deploying these systems in numerical models is essential to the future success and efficiency of the petroleum industry. Multiphysics modeling has been widely applied in the petroleum industry since the 1960s. The rapid development of computer technology has enabled the numerical applications of multiphysics modeling in the petroleum industry: its applications are particularly popular for the numerical simulation of drilling and completion processes. This book covers theory and numerical applications of multiphysical modeling presenting various author-developed subroutines, used to address complex pore pressure input, complex initial geo-stress field input, etc. Some innovative methods in drilling and completion developed by the authors, such as trajectory optimization and a 3-dimensional workflow for calculation of mud weight window etc, are also presented. Detailed explanations are provided for the modeling process of each application example included in the book. In addition, details of the completed numerical models data are presented as supporting material which can be downloaded from the website of the publisher. Readers can easily understand key modeling techniques with the theory of multiphysics embedded in examples of applications,and can use the data to reproduce the results presented. While this book would be of interest to any student, academic or professional practitioner of engineering, mathematics and natural science, we believe those professionals and academics working in civil engineering, petroleum engineering and petroleum geomechanics would find the work especially relevant to their endeavors.
