E-423 - Data Acquisition during Drilling Operations

5 days FOR/LOGFIE
Level
Proficiency
Audience
  • Young engineers and supervisors, toolpushers with some experience in drilling.
Purpose
  • This course provides a thorough, practical knowledge of openhole logging, mud logging and fishing while drilling.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • understand, assess and interpret measurements made while drilling,
  • learn about techniques and equipment used for coring during drilling operations,
  • understand how to prevent kicks and drilling problems with mud logging data analysis,
  • understand wireline and LWD technology with regard to log data analysis,
  • appreciate the geoscientists’ work in a quick-look log analysis at the rig site.
Prerequisite
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • Application to a real case (project) for the participants in the “Drilling and Completion Engineering” training course (E-412C).
Observation
* Public holidays: the course schedule will be adapted to cover all content.

MUD LOGGING PARAMETERS 2 days
  • Tasks of various professionals at the drilling site.
  • Main documents carried out.
  • Physical principles sensors used on well site.
  • Mechanical parameters (WOH, WOB, RPM, ROP) & hydraulic parameters.
  • Cuttings (sampling, cleaning & analysis).
  • Detection & evaluation of oil & gas shows while drilling.
  • Carry out a section of geological log.
  • Case study.
CORING OPERATIONS 0.5 day
  • Data collected with coring.
  • Conventional coring operation.
  • Cores bits and drilling strings for coring operations.
  • Advanced coring technics: turbo-coring, soft formations coring, gel coring.
  • Side wall coring with wireline.
  • Oriented coring system.
  • Storage and handling process for cores during surface recovery: cores cutting, preliminary well site analysis, storaging of cores.
WELL LOGGING & LOGGING WHILE DRILLING 2 days
  • Definition of basic concepts used in log interpretation.
  • Wireline logging:
  • Well site setup and log records operation.
  • Main logging tools and applications (caliper, GR, SP, resistivity, nuclear, acoustic).
  • Quick-look interpretation: reservoir identification and characterization (lithology, porosity, fluid types, saturation).
  • Case study.
  • Logging while drilling:
  • Main LWD sensors and measurements (directional, resistivity, nuclear, acoustic, pressure, …).
  • Applications for directional drilling, geosteering, formation evaluation, predictive pressure.
  • Pressure measurement concepts.
  • Different technics for sampling with wireline and LWD tools.
  • Prevention actions to handle sampling operations.
