E-408 - Serious Game on Drilling Simulator: Cases’ Studies for Drilling Supervisors

5 days FOR/FOSIME
Level
Proficiency
Audience
  • Drilling engineers, supervisors, tool pushers.
Purpose
  • To help trainees to understand, prepare and manage various situations, to analyze and react properly.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • remind the good practices for the main operations on the rig with the references to the Company Rules,
  • prepare the instructions for a given situation using checklists if needed,
  • manage a prejob safety meeting prior to commence an operation,
  • follow the operations and control the important parameters,
  • detect potential problems and react properly using a decision tree if necessary,
  • manage the problems and adapt the program to the situation (Management Of Change).
Prerequisite
  • Well Control knowledges are advised.
Ways and means
  • Short reminder in a classroom and application in real-life working conditions on Drilling Simulators.
  • Systematic debriefing with trainees at the end of each day.

COMMON OBJECTIVES FOR ALL EXERCISES
  • Reminders on the good practice and the company rules (if any).
  • Work on the simulators with various situations.
  • Analyze the situations.
  • Prepare the instructions.
  • Manage the prejob/safety meetings.
  • Follow the ongoing operations.
  • Detect potential problems.
  • React properly.
  • Adapt the program if needed.
TRIPPING 0.5 day
  • Work on the simulators with various situations, prepare the program for the trip or wiper trip in a vertical and deviated well, follow the ongoing operations, drags, torque, swabbing, back reaming, pump out of hole, detect potential problems.
CASING OPERATION 0.5 day
  • Work with various situations, prepare the program to run the casing in the hole, follow the ongoing operations, filling up the casing, drags, surging, detect potential problems, and react properly.
CEMENTING OPERATION 0.5 day
  • Prepare the program for the cementing job in various situations, follow the ongoing operations, regular cement job, kick while cementing, losses and detect potential problems if any, react properly and adapt the program if needed.
LOT & ELOT 0.5 day
  • Prepare the program for the integrity test of the formation, follow the ongoing operations, FIT, LOT, ELOT, detect potential problems, react properly and adapt the program if needed.
CIRCULATION, HOLE CLEANING 0.5 day
  • Work on the simulators with various hole cleaning issues, prepare the program, follow the ongoing operations, PUW, SOW, FRW, ECD, SPP, detect potential problems of hole cleaning, react properly and adapt the program if needed by changing or adjusting hydraulic parameters.
LOSSES 0.5 day
  • Analyze the situation, follow the ongoing operations, drilling, RIH, circulation, detect potential problems of losses (partial or total losses), react properly, adapt the program if needed.
STUCK PIPE 0.5 day
  • Work on the simulators with various stuck pipe situations, follow the ongoing operation, drilling, POOH, jarring, detect potential problems (Key seat, differential pressure sticking, packoff), react properly and free the string.
WELL CONTROL IN HORIZONTAL WELL 0.5 day
  • Manage the operations to kill a well with a kick in an horizontal profile.
SHALLOW GAS 0.5 day
  • Work on the simulators with various situations leading to a shallow gas kick, prepare the program to anticipate the problem, follow the ongoing operation, drilling of the top hole, pilot hole, detect potential problems, kick while drilling, kick during pipe connection, kick while POOH, react properly with dynamic killing procedure and diverter use.
WELL CONTROL WITH CP>MAASP 0.5 day
  • Kick exceeding kick tolerance, manage the killing operation, follow the ongoing operation, kick circulation, detect potential problems when CP close to MAASP, react properly avoiding fracture of the formation if possible and managing the BHP.
