Well planning
To formulate a drilling program for drilling awell having following characteristics:(1) safety:
Highest priority in well planningPersonnel considerations must be placed above all.Second priority involves safety of well and rig equipment.Contingency plan for fire and blow out should form anintegral part of well plan.(2) minimum cost:Minimize the cost of the wellwithout sacrificing or compromising on the safetyaspects.(3) usable
The objective of drilling a hole to target depthwill not be achieved if the final well configuration is notusable.
Usable means:The final hole diameter is large enough to facilitatedesired completion.The pay zone is not irreparably damaged.Activities before start of drilling operation:Activities undertaken prior to start drilling operationcan be broken down into the following steps:
Release of location.
Survey of surface / subsea location. Sometimesthe cost can be reduced by a small change insurface location.
Civil works and foundation for onshore drill-siteand soil coring / sea bed survey in case ofoffshore well.
Preparation of geo-technical order.
Preparation of complete well programmed.
Preparation of bill of material and initiation ofpurchase, if required.
Procedures from obtaining sanction forpurchase to receipt of material.
Rig allocation and its shifting to the newlocation.Input data for well planning:The information's required for planning of a wellare:
The objective of well.
