The well control manual also gives requirements for backup drilling fluid volume and drilling fluid chemicals needed onboard.
As a leading provider of integrity, compliance and specialist risk consulting services, we provide confidence that risks are understood and compliant with oil and gas industry standards and regulations.
Well Integrity is an integral part of our well delivery process. Drill Insight provides bespoke engineering solutions to meet the lifecycle of well integrity and risk management at ALARP to facilitate compliance with NOPSEMA regulation 5.09(1) (c).
Our Risk Management Process (AS/NZS ISO 31000:2009) uses DMIRS’ (PGERA67) Act to develop following plans/ documents under DMP Regulatory Framework for Onshore / WA Offshore (Submerged Lands) or NOPSEMA OPGGS Regulation- 2011 for Offshore.
We offer our technical, operational and engineering knowledge and expertise together with our deep knowledge of industry standards and regulations.
Drill Insight partnered with Chris Dykes to offer independent Well examination services covering the entire life cycle of each well, from its concept design to well construction, into the production operations phase, as part of a technical due diligence assessment, and eventually to well decommissioning and abandonment. Drill Insight provides an independent assessment to verify that wells are being designed, constructed, operated, suspended and abandoned in accordance with the oil & gas industry standards and in compliance with national regulations.
Our well examination support service typically consists of a review of design, delivery and operational plans and programs along with a review of internal systems and processes to ensure they adhered to
During the well operation phase, our Well Assurance will help to ensure the operator that the well is designed, constructed, operated and maintained in a safe condition and that all risks are thoroughly assessed according to the ALARP principle.
The depth of the well assurance and examination will depend on the criticality of the project and the identified hazards associated with the specific operations
Drill Insight offers drilling engineering services to perform both forensic analysis of historically troubled well as well as the advanced Look-ahead (Pre-Well) analysis using DrillExpect® – tightly coupled Thermodynamic-Hydraulic-Mechanical drilling models, which creates realistic dynamic downhole pressure simulations, plus hole cleaning and temperature evolutions that reveal much of what may happen in the wellbore and our drilling optimisation services use this insight not only to help reduce operational uncertainty and risk but also to optimise drilling parameters and operate safely close to upper and lower limits.
The Offset (Post) Well Analysis is forensic replays (after-action review study) of the historical well where drilling problems occurred using timeseries data of the well. We offer offset well analysis services based in DrillScene® to not only collect the lessons learned but to identify optimisation opportunities for the next well. We perform this analysis by intercepting time-series data to DrillScene® Replay mode to analyse critical/troubled zones/sections of the formation with respect to wellbore integrity, evaluate missed opportunities of optimum drilling.
The Advanced Look-ahead (Pre-Well) analysis is part of Drilling Engineering Services using DrillExpect, which creates realistic dynamic downhole pressure simulations, plus hole cleaning and temperature evolutions that reveal much of what may happen in the wellbore and our drilling optimisation services use this insight not only to help reduce operational uncertainty and risk but also to optimise drilling parameters and operate safely close to upper and lower limits. The unique cutting transport simulation makes it easy to define optimum hole-cleaning parameters. These detailed simulations cover cuttings bed generation and estimated bed height, cutting bed location and movement along the wellbore, local changes to flow patterns across the bed, and cutting bed erosion/removal.
Drill Insight delivers high-end technical training with the help of Subject Matter Experts as Instructors in the following area;
We offer following courses as a standard or customised format to meet specific field development need;
Our advanced THM modelling solution creates a dynamic, real-time picture of the entire wellbore by interfacing real-time data with advance drilling models. These models continuously assess drilling performance, borehole conditions, and associated risks based on real-time symptom detection. The delivered improved understanding of drilling operation enable operator to detect incipient drilling problems and take preventive action. The result is more consistent and more efficient drilling.
A unique real-time drilling optimization solution is based on DrillScene & DrillExpect Software. Sekal AS has developed, validated and delivered the software based services globally on 300 wells since 2011. Drill Insight has partnered with Sekal AS for delivering Real-time Drilling Optimisation Services (SaaS).
The solution creates a dynamic, real-time picture of the entire wellbore and key drilling variables/parameters at the time of drilling by interfacing real-time data (LWD/MWD, Mudlogging, Wireline and other rig floor analysis), along with G&G inputs of a prospect as pre-feed information, with advanced drilling models. These tightly coupled real-time dynamic models – hydraulic, mechanical and thermodynamic – simulate wellbore condition and characterise improvement or deterioration during drilling.
The THM tool simplifies real-time data analysis by using trends and deviations between modelled and actual data to monitor well bore condition and empower drilling team to anticipate & avoid issues such as poor hole cleaning, stuck pipe, lost circulation, gain, formation damage and borehole instability, underground blow out, Torque & Drag. That results in predicting issues, which leads to non-productive time (NPT) and invisible lost time (ILT) helps to keep your drilling plans on schedule and ensures effective cost control for every well by improving efficiency & safety and reducing risk & hazard.
The THM modelling tool also offer real-time modelling of key drilling variables such as hook load, surface torque, cuttings transport, pit volumes, standpipe pressure and dynamic ECD. It also calculates fluid temperature and density evolution, mechanical and hydraulic friction in the wellbore, all of which highlight changing wellbore conditions and potential problems.
It improves drilling operations by:
The Real-time Dynamic Modeling of drilling operation fills the data gap behind the bit, enabling operators to assess crucial factors such as fluid volumes, fluid velocity, cuttings proportions, pressure, temperature, ECD and friction along the complete drillstring from bit to surface. This helps to identify the optimum conditions for each section being drilled.
Drill Insight offers real-time drilling optimisation services in collaboration with Sekal in form of SAAS (software as a service). We not only monitor the client’s operation from our RTOC but also provide the Drilling performance optimisation advisory services by providing experienced drilling advisor to clients.
