09 Directional Drilling

Session Chairpersons:

Martyn Ian Greensmith, Gyrodata; John Martin Clegg, APS Technology

Directional drilling in all its forms is continually evolving as new reservoir challenges and remote surface locations face us. In addition, wellbore profiles are playing a more important role, not only in the ability to drill further with more complex designs, but also in reducing costs over the life of the well. In this session, we have a selection of papers which encompass many aspects of this complex art form.

11 Wellbore Strengthening and Well Control

Session Chairpersons:

Karen Bashford-Provence, ConocoPhillips; Howard Alexander Garig, ExxonMobil

Managing well control requires a variety of techniques while a strong wellbore controls the hydrostatic column, which is the primary well control strategy. This combined session pulls together aspects of kick detection, reviews well control techniques according to barrier analysis, and delivers case studies for drilling depleted sands and naturally fractured formations for a holistic view.
