Improve Drilling Efficiency


What steps can I take to optimize drilling operations and reduce drilling days while minimizing well construction costs and decreasng time to first production?


The high cost of drilling and completing deepwater wells in West Africa make it important to improve drilling efficiency and minimize non-productive time.  In a region where geography and infrastructure limitations can be challenging, Halliburton understands that effective, comprehensive preplanning is critical if drilling objectives are to be met cost effectively. Halliburton can cut operator time and expense via experienced personnel stationed at our numerous repair and maintenance facilities throughout West Africa. These professionals understand the special challenges of operating in West Africa deepwater, and they can mobilize the required equipment to support even the most demanding drilling activities. 

Halliburton uses a proven process with expert personnel to increase efficiencies in drilling operations through a philosophy of model, measure and optimize. These services focus on three areas targeted to provide the most value to the well-construction process:

  1. Drillstring integrity, including prevention of mechanical overload, protection from fatigue and minimizing excessive shock and vibration;
  2. Hydraulics management to maintain annular pressures within wellbore pressure boundaries, optimize hole cleaning and clean-up cycles, optimize circulating system pressures, maximize ROP without exceeding mud weight windows and optimize tripping time;
  3. Wellbore integrity to define upper and lower wellbore pressure limits and identify the optimum mud weight window.

Integrated applications for well operations, real-time well-data communications, data analysis and corporate well-data management capture historic lessons learned and daily operations information that is useful for understanding performance in deep West Africa wells.
