This exciting session offers the opportunity to engage and learn about special operations, applications, and challenges. It commences with global management of real-time data and processes that significantly accelerate field development. The theme transitions to risk management of challenging subsurface risks and geohazards over the life of an operating license offshore. Advancements in completions technologies, sand control, and sidetracking through depleted sands are also covered. Topics on casing integrity measurement and evaluation, and multiple relief well drilling to a challenging HP/HT blowout using advanced methodologies close out this session.

16 Drilling Dynamics

Session Chairpersons:

John Laurence Thorogood, Drilling Global Consultant LLP; Curtis Alan Cheatham, Weatherford

Drilling dynamics is the focus of much attention today due to its major impact on borehole quality, damaged tools, wasted energy, and resultant nonproductive time. This session discusses new methods for drilling faster in hard chalk, benefits of induced vibrations in unconventional horizontal wells, a new method for calculating downhole RPM and torque from surface measurements, recent advances in soft torque, use of the transfer matrix approach for analysing dynamics, and the influence of drillpipe on drilling performance.
