Drilling refers to the process of boring a hole through soil and rock to access geologic reservoirs that contain oil and gas.
Control formation pressures, remove cuttings from the wellbore, and seal permeable formations
Its a deep hole that is drilled into the Earth’s surface with the aim of locating a new source of hydrocarbons such as oil and natural gas
Honigmann process (shaft-borring) is a continental method of shaft sinking through sand that is water bearing.
There are 2 different methods of producing oil from oil sands: open-pit mining and in situ
A jack up rig is the most common type of rig, with 3 or 4 legs that are lowered onto the ocean bed, and the rig is then lifted to its operating height above sea level.
Shales and other low-permeability formations require multistage completions, hydraulic fracturing, and horizontal wells to produce at economic rates.
Its a large structure with equipment for getting oil from under the ground or under the sea
Unconventional reservoirs are usually hard to develop, high risk and require huge early investments. Smart ways and methods are needed to increase the profitability of such projects.
TAML, formed in 1997 as a joint-industry project, now aims to reinvent itself as an organization for educating the industry on the advantages of multilateral wells.
