    gas industries such as automotive brake systems and clutches, aircraft landing gears, and drilling downhole assembly. For the past few years, I directed my research towered development of mechanical systems and devices for oil and gas industries. The research involve modeling the downhole assembly and fabricating systems/setups and mechanisms to imitate deep drilling (high temperature and high pressure drilling

  • Taking a Look at th Drilling Process

    system There are two type of rotating system in drilling process, rotary table and top drive system. Rotary table make the rotation of drill string through torque applied by the rotary table and by the hexagonal Kelly on the drill floor. It is the old type of rotating system, need more workers on the field because it rotates manually. Top drive system rotate the drill string by using hydraulic or electrical motor that is hang on the mast of the drilling rig (Cherutich, 2009). Rotary table component:

  • The Ethics Of Drilling Mud

    1516 Words  | 7 Pages

    5. The functions of drilling mud, and how their properties are modified to suit downhole conditions Discussion of the problems the mud engineer has in selecting a mud for a HPHT well. Introduction The drilling mud plays a critical role in any successful drilling operation. It must be carefully optimised and managed to ensure the safety of the drilling operation and to minimise hole problems. A failure in the mud design can lead to significant losses in terms of time and cost as a result of problems

  • Plot The Estimated Actual Fracture Gradient Curve

    2174 Words  | 9 Pages

    • Plot the estimated actual fracture gradient curve and the designed fracture gradient curve, which is the estimated actual fracture gradient, less allowance for well control, surge, or ECD. • Plot offset mud weight and LOT (or Formation Integrity Test) data to provide a check of the pore pressure predictions. • Start from the bottom on the mud weight curve (Point A); draw vertical line up to the designed fracture gradient curve (Point B). Point B is the initial estimated intermediate casing setting

  • The Ocean Ranger Oil Disaster Essay

    989 Words  | 4 Pages

    The Ocean Ranger The Ocean Ranger was an offshore exploration oil drilling platform that sank in Canadian waters 315 kilometres southeast from St. John's Newfoundland, on the Grand Banks of Newfoundland on February 15, 1982, with 84 crewmembers onboard. The Ocean Ranger was the largest semi-submersible, offshore exploration, oil drilling platform of the day. Built in 1976 by Japan's Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, it operated off the coasts of Alaska, New Jersey, Ireland, and in November 1980 moved

  • The Deepwater Horizon Is An Oil Drilling Rig

    1661 Words  | 7 Pages

    The Deepwater Horizon is an oil drilling rig that was built in South Korea by Hyundai Heavy Industries in 2001. The rig was a massive mobile drill as it was measured to be “396 by 256 feet” (Report). Additionally, it was considered to be an exploratory rig, not an actual excavator rig. The rig was commissioned to Transocean which later leased it to British Petroleum, an oil and gas company. The oil rig was once well known as “it set the world record for the deepest oil and gas well … 35,055 feet”

  • Exploration Of Oil And Gas Resources Essay

    1715 Words  | 7 Pages

    resources, the oil industry is now more than ever faced with exploration of unconventional and challenging oil and gas reserves. Such reserves call for novel drilling techniques and also require drilling fluids that can fulfil such drilling requirements. In most cases it’s OBM that can provide hole stability and it is also the best choice for drilling highly sensitive wells. But as these OBMs are being used, operators must strike a balance between their desired high performance standards and environmental

    the miners families.The government started a drilling plan. The first drill was provided by south african drilling company. It was very slow and will take months to reach the miners,this was plan A. A T130XD aircore drill owned by Geotec S.A. was used for plan B. It is much faster than plan A. It experience its first delay when it hit metal bar. Plan C was a powerful canadian built RIG-421 oil drilling rig operated by Calgary-based Precision Drilling Corporation and this was the last drill involved
