Rock mechanics

This new version has been thoroughly revised to mirror the extraordinary strategies in mining engineering and the outstanding advancements within the technology of rock mechanics and the perform of rock angineering taht have taken position over the past 20 years. even though "Rock Mechanics for Underground Mining" addresses some of the rock mechanics concerns that come up in underground mining engineering, it isn't a textual content solely for mining functions.

These tools stab into the PBR and incorporate sealing elements. 2. Hole and Casing Sizes: Considerations “Slimhole,” according to the current industry definition, is a well which is completed in 43/4 in or smaller hole at TD. Monobore completions allow the well to be drilled in smaller diameters and also have other advantages and some drawbacks. These were discussed in the previous section on completion design. There are substantial savings possible by drilling smaller hole sizes than would be traditionally used.

1] Well Design (TD) in 81/2 in hole with a 7 in liner and 5 in production tubing could be TD’d in 6 in with a 5 in liner/5 in monobore completion with no loss of production for significantly less cost. This would not be termed “slimhole” according to the current definition (completed in 43/4 in hole or smaller) but it takes advantage of some of the slimhole developments to drill a cheaper, fit-for-purpose well while avoiding the complications of true slimhole. 1. How the Completion Relates to the Well Design The completion will affect the entire well design, especially the casing design.

12. 13. 14. 2 ] intervention work could be done under pressure; not killing the well will eliminate impairment due to killing for workovers. May be useful for deeper wells where many casing strings are needed. Reduction in required consumables and tangibles may ease logistical problems in remote areas. Offshore rigs need less resupply. Exploration wells can be drilled as slim, cheap, throwaway wells instead of as expensive potential producers. The target zones can be drilled using wireline-retrievable continuous cores to give better petrophysical and geological information.
