You are the lead directional driller on this well. The TC plot shown below is presented to you at the pre-job meeting.

How would you approach this issue?


There is not much room left, but the plan is still not crossing any NO-GO circles. This will not be an easy job, but you are an experienced directional
driller so can pull this one off.
That is not good, but this will be drilled with a rock bit, and since the wells are near vertical below the platform, at worst, the bit will bounce off the
offset well casing.
The risk of violating the anti-collision rule is far from being negligible. You are therefore requesting a full risk analysis to be conducted and a
precautionary exemption to be processed and approved before you start drilling this well.
This is what I am paid for.

The calculation of the positional uncertainty is based on the error model. To validate the error model for a particular survey, which of the following must be
correct?
The survey tool was run using appropriate running procedures
There were no gross errors made in calculating the surveys
The survey was within specified accuracy and met all acceptance criteria
The survey has been correctly entered into the database and verified
The survey instrument used passes both pre-job and post-job calibration checks

Plane scanning method.
True
False

The radius of the NO-GO circles for OSF rule is determined by the survey tool error models used for the surveys in the offset well, and the survey program
for the subject well, with an allowance for hole diameters.

True
False

54 of 60
The survey program used to define the NO-GO circles on the traveling cylinder plot must reflect the drilling survey tools for that hole section of the subject
well.
True
False

Select the correct statement(s) about a tolerance line on a traveling cylinder plot.
Drawn automatically by the software
Used to define the drilling tunnel
Used to warn of upcoming proximity issues that might not be apparent on the current traveling cylinder plot

consequence of achieving only a third of the required 3 deg / 30 m dogleg during kickoff?

I need a spider plot to be able to answer


There is still some room but it will bring my subject well closer to Offset 1
That would not be a problem
There is a problem with this TC plot since the Surface Rule was not taken into account while generating the TC plot

59 of 60
The well is planned to be kicked off in the 277 deg azimuth at 120 m MD. The first 2 surveys after kickoff and your projection ahead of the bit are showing
that you are above and slightly right of your planned trajectory.

What is your next course of action?


You stop drilling; you are about to violate the minor risk oriented separation factor rule
You are not too sure where I am, so you use the spider plot to make your next steering decision
You are worried that being slightly on the left will bring you closer to Offset 2; you call town to tell the drilling engineer to prepare an exemption
You keep on drilling in the planned direction; being slightly above the plan is not a bad idea in this case

Please select the correct diagram where:

Grid Conversion = -1.4 deg

Magnetic Declination = -3.7 deg
