Drill your HPHT Well on a Simulator
This DWoS workshop addresses the operational challenges of drilling HPHT wells. The event is typically focused on a specific rig and well project and facilitates team building among rigsite personnel.
Using a blend of theory, practical exercises and drilling simulator sessions, the following aspects of the well delivery program are covered:
the HPHT environment
well specific operational challenges
on-bottom well control refresher
trip management and off bottom well control
Well Control Equipment for HPHT operations
HPHT drilling practices
Thermal effects and fingerprinting
The well's earth model, rig operating characteristics are modelled on a high fidelity drilling simulator and the drilling teams work through a range of well-specific challenges.
Welltrain's experienced well control coaches typically provide feedback and well engineering consultancy to assist in the development of the well-specific procedures. These commonly start the workshops as draft documents; evolving as different challenges are identified and overcome by the rig teams on the simulators.
