Can be mitigated using cesium format brine, but not every company uses it - they prefer to play Russian Roulette with the lives of their rig crews • Seismic resolution • Testing Facilities and Materials are both equally with respect to gaps 1)
  5. 5. What are the major challenges you face with equipment durability? • BOP equipment sealing elements • Extended exposure to temperature • Equipment reliability and durability with temperature above 175 deg Celsius • Durability against high temperature • Dynamic seals • Getting equipment to be reliable under extreme conditions • Hot hole tools, Long term effect on metal / elastomers • Internal annulus unknown changes and access to monitor and intervene • Liner hanger sealing element • Material failure due to high temperature case • Quantifying how T & P cycling effects each component of the systems being used 2)
  6. 6. What are the major challenges you face with equipment durability? Cont’d: • Reliability of down hole chemical injection systems. • Stress corrosion cracking caused by the halide brines used as completion, work over and packer fluids • Surface drilling equipment and down hole drilling tools • The High Temperature limits the performance of tools so during drilling you can optimize the cooling system in order to plan the availability of different section of job • The increasing need for higher temperature ( 230 - 260C) electronics given ultra deep wells and geothermal wells • The main challenges in my field relate to measurement accuracy and precision, both to achieve the required levels and maintaining the calibration through (multiple) temperature cycles. • Wellhead hander sealing elements 2)
  7. 7. What are the critical factors to consider when ensuring the electronic survivability of equipment? • Always the High temperature but also the High Pressure that increase the possibility of leak • Combination of down hole dynamic (shock) and temperature • Connection technology is also very important • Electronic equipment needs to be robust against higher temperatures (Step change in technology) • Ensure that the sensor withstands the maximum temperature case • Extended exposure to temperatures above 450 f • How stable circuits can be made by resistance to extreme movement and how well recovery can be captured due to shock and surge • Long term testing under realistic well conditions is also crucial • Material choices • Max operating temperature, max Junction temperature, availability of SOI devices, de rating at temperature of passive competent, longevity at temperature, shock and vibration, supplier viability, Supplier commitment to Oil market & Sub systems and MCM approach 3)
  8. 8. What are the critical factors to consider when ensuring the electronic survivability of equipment? Cont’d: • Pressure, position, fatigue testing, environment, temperature fluctuations • Pressure difference between inside and out side of the tools in high temp environment • QAQC and testing • Remove as many unnecessary items as possible, particularly reagents which will affect the life of the components through chemical degradation • Shock, vibration and high torque, OBM environment, Temperature and vibration • Temperature, operating environment, Pressure and operating procedures. • Understanding of real down hole temperatures. Understanding of simulated and measured circulation temperatures. • Voltage switching devices 3)
  9. 9. Is enough being done to combat the risk of product failure at high temperatures? Is enough being done to combat the risk of product failure at high temperatures? 7.7% 53.8% 38.5% Yes No I am not sure 4)
  10. 10. What are the key factors that contribute to the success of your QA/QC process? • Adapt qualification process integrating shock loading in down hole condition • Casing design & seals • Clear and concise quality plan that is correctly implemented • Constant monitoring and improvement • Custom design to specific parameters • Detailed check list • Diligence, Thoroughness & Honesty • Early planning and good well plan using Wellcat, enough lead time for casing, tubulars, seals etc… • Enforcement of QAQC process • Environmental testing • Experience level of people involved • Going into drilling challenges studies before drilling the well 5)
  11. 11. What are the key factors that contribute to the success of your QA/QC process?

  12. 12. Do you have any additional information or comments? • Invest more money to research micro-electric ... • Managed Pressure Drilling could be used as an Active Well Control tool for drilling HPHT wells. The technology needs to be customized for floating rigs in the North Sea • Stick to safety, and environmental rules & regulations • The factors in subsea HP HT wells being in excess of 15,000 psi and 350F are untested in the full scope of delivery of the drilled well. BOP control is not proven, recent developments in subsea wellhead systems are leading to 20,000psi and + 350F systems and alongside this the development of drilling BOP's is progressing quickly. The ability of the systems to access B and C annulus areas especially in large casing programs is a key area of concern and solutions need to be developed • Use benekte with track record or proven long term test. Use common test criteria and facilities 6)
  13. 13. Do you have any additional information or comments? • HPHT wells will continue to push the limits of existing technology. In order to meet the demand of future requirements, the industry will need to work closer with suppliers of technology to craft solutions capable of drilling into harsher and hotter environments. The intelligence of the drill will continue to increase in intelligence. The development of smarter tools will take time and money. This initiative will need to be driven at many layers, funded over many years and supported by the DOE, Universities, Oil Field Service Providers, Semiconductor Suppliers and Passive and Magnetic suppliers. Trendsetter Electronics has been assisting the design and supply chain process for 15 years. We are currently positioned for component level and sub-system solutions supporting HPHT wells up to 230C 30Kpsi • Operational adjustments should not be used as a substitute for safety factoring. specialists need to handle contingences when plans cannot be followed 6)

  20. 20. Interactive Workshops Tuesday 23rd November 2010 08.45 – 12.00 Interactive Workshop A: Examine critical completions considerations and well integrity issues for HPHT environments This in-depth workshop will give you the opportunity to assess first-hand some of the most effective completions and well integrity challenges,and discover the techniques and strategies required to overcome them. During the interactive discussions,you will have the opportunity to: n Explore in detail the use of various HPHT completion techniques n Understand what the emerging technologies are in this space n Examine the critical aspects of HPHT well integrity n Address issues surrounding HPHT well integrity with application to life of well prediction n Gain insight into cementing practices and cement fatigue in HPHT wells n Measure corrosive formation fluids effects on: -Tubular integrity - Pressure barrier sealing performance -Well head seals - Downhole mechanical seals in packers n Key considerations for cement sealing and structural integrity Workshop leader to be announced 12.30 – 15.30 Interactive Workshop B: Understand the need for discipline integration with HPHT wells During this“hands-on”workshop,teams will work through an exercise to carry out a plan for well construction within a set scenario.Through this exercise,you will: n Definethechallengesandbeingawareof“rippleon”effectsofdecisionsmade n Determinetheplayersandtheirroles–possibleshiftinpresentorganisationrequired n Engage in discussions as to why early buy-in from senior management is critical In order to maximise group participation,you will be split into teams.In your teams,you will work out a plan based around your scenario and then you will then report back to the whole workshop.Key considerations will include: n Bringing the ultimate goal of production back to the initial planning stage n Setting up a paper exercise of a well construction based on known reservoir conditions and having back-up plans to address possible surprises n Establishing guidelines for drilling team In this session,you will understand why thinking about the well objectives is critical to the well design.You will take into account the fact that if you only look at the drilling of the well (pressure integrity of the casing) rather than size,type and depth of the specific string,you may plan yourself into a corner with no room to adjust should higher pressures be encountered further up-hole.This could mean that you need to run another intermediate string and that could not be available or be wrongly sized to enable test tools to get to the depth required.You need to avoid having a drilled hole that nothing can fit in for evaluation purposes.
