This two-hour (live) virtual course introduces participants on how to analyze annular pressure measurements i.e., equivalent circulating density (ECD) data alongside other downhole and surafce drilling data. This overview course will focus on the application of pressure while drilling in the field and shows participants the techniques to accurately interpret downhole pressure logs. This introductory course is a step towards equipping oil and gas professionals with an understanding of downhole pressure analysis; and will enable them to build on correct interpretation techniques. It is important to understand how to analyze downhole pressure data i.e., ECD data, with other associated drilling data to identify and mitigate potential well problems in drilling operations that can increase well cost.
Engineers, Technical and Field professionals in drilling operations, i.e., Drilling engineers, M/LWD field engineers and personnel, mud engineers, operations geologist, drilling optimization, real-time operations, mud logging and well planning personnel with beginning to mid-level years of experience in drilling operations. Other technical, Managerial, and field professionals that want a fundamental knowledge in downhole pressure analysis can attend.
You will learn:
Participants will be introduced on how to:
- Relate annular pressure measurements (ECD data) and other downhole/surface drilling data for accurate interpretations in well monitoring and control.
- Identify potential hole problems with annular pressure measurements (ECD data).
- Apply field operating procedures to control annular pressure measurements (ECD).
- Analyze and interpret pressure logs outputs from a field case.
