DRILLING BEST PRACTICES FROM THE PERMIAN BASIN & BEYOND

PLAY-BY-PLAY PROJECT DEVELOPMENT & EXECUTION STRATEGIES

9:00 Assessing Drilling Best Practices & Performance Results To Drill Horizontal Wells, Further, Faster And Cost-Efficiently

< Maximize Drilling Efficiencies, Optimize ROI, Reduce NPT As Much As Possible >

No two basins are alike - what has traditionally worked in one basin has not worked in another basin. However, technology is changing at a rapid pace, allowing operators to not only drill longer, deeper laterals, but also increase efficiency and optimize performance in every shale formation and downhole environment. Drilling practices that are successful in one basin can now be effectively transferred, adjusted and applied in other basins.

  • Landing Point : Find out how landing point is being determined as far as where to drill the horizontal
  • Cementing Practices : What cementing slurries are they using and how many barrels are being placed per minute
  • Casing Design : Improve the way that you design your casing relative to formation temperature and pressure
  • BHA Design : Assess advances in BHA configuration, including drilling fluids, bit selection, motors, in extended reach laterals
  • Average Rates Of Penetration : Understand factors allowing operators to average rates of penetration
  • Average ROP when drilling the curve
  • Average ROP when drilling the lateral
  • Pumping Pressures & Horse Power : Maximize rig capabilities per lateral in every formation
  • Hole Cleaning: Optimize hole cleaning in long reach laterals to reduce torque and drag
  • Results From Latest Technologies : Examine the ratio of operators using RSS over conventional motors in the Permian Basin vs Appalachian, Rockies and Mid-Continent plays
