While drilling through the initial section of extended reach drill (ERD) wells in Abu Dhabi where the trajectory requires a high inclination across a recognized loss zone various options were required to be assessed to maximize efficiency while balancing risks. Factors such as loss rate, capability of mixing fluid, necessary density to help prevent flow from a shallow water-bearing zone, and rig time, where all necessary and key factors to consider in the design process.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
