Wellbore integrity focuses on:
- defining upper and lower wellbore pressure limits
- identifying the optimum mud weight window
The ADT specialist can predict the pore pressure caused by various mechanisms, fracture pressure, and hole collapse pressures. The industry-leading Drillworks® software is used to provide comprehensive pre-well analysis and wellsite surveillance services to determine the mechanisms of pore pressure generation within a prospect. Advanced pore pressure, geomechanical and basin models can also be developed and updated in real time. Using real-time formation evaluation data, including sonic, density, resistivity and gamma ray, enables the ADT service specialist to update and refine the expected conditions. Recommendations are then made to help ensure wellbore integrity and stability, maximize ROP, extend target depth criteria and optimize or eliminate casing points. It removes uncertainty in mud weight decisions, and integrates with the Hydraulics Management service to maximize performance while helping to maintain safe drilling conditions.
