Horizontal Drilling U.S Shale & Tight Oil Plays 2013

Horizontal drilling rigs in the US grew significantly from 362 February 2011 to 823 September 2012 meaning 58% of all onshore rigs in the US are now horizontal. With plays such as the Mississippi Lime and Granite Wash now being revolutionized by horizontal drilling, the growth trend is set to continue into 2013 and beyond. But there is still a great deal in costs and a great deal in time that can be saved. Innovations in curve building, torque and drag reduction, casing, cementing, rotary steerable and fluids are now being pioneered across US shale and tight oil plays to improve project time and reduce project costs, whilst ultimately facilitating higher rates of production.

This focus on efficiency calls again for the sharing of the latest horizontal case studies showing how new technologies, tools and techniques continue to optimize drill time, facilitate increased recovery in completions and ultimately, justify the expenditure on new drilling technology in shale and tight oil plays such as the Bakken, Eagle Ford and Permian.

Horizontal Drilling U.S. Shale & Tight Oil Plays was the first ever US-wide congress delivering technically detailed and economically focused solutions presented purely from the drillers perspective. It brought together executives and technical experts from the Bakken, Eagle Ford, Permian, Marcellus, Mississippi Lime, Utica and other major US shale plays to share best practices for optimizing well drilling operations through transferable lessons.

Networking Drinks Reception

DAY ONE EXPLORED THE OPTIMIZATION OF TOOLS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO BUILDING THE CURVE INCLUDING MWD/LWD TOOLS, DRILL BITS, ROTARY STEERABLE AND CONVENTIONAL MOTORS. IT WILL ESTABLISH BEST PRACTICES FOR SURFACE AND INTERMEDIATE CEMENTING

DAY TWO ASSESSED THE EFFECTIVENESS OF DIFFERENT MUDS, EXPLORED THE EFFECTS OF THESE MUDS ON FLUID LOSS AND HOLE STABILITY AND EXAMINED METHODS FOR REDUCING TORQUE AND DRAG. IT FINISHED BY IDENTIFYING OPTIMAL CUTTING DISPOSAL TECHNIQUES AND HEARING THE LATEST REGULATIONS ON WATER CONTAMINATION

The First Ever Horizontal Drilling U.S. Shale & Tight Oil Plays 2013 Is Now Coming To Houston

…to bring together executives and drilling experts from leading operators across the US to provide solutions to the major strategic and technical drilling issues being faced nationally in shale gas and tight oil plays with the aim of driving down costs and time of operations. Through the eyes of the driller, representatives from the major US plays will come together to discuss how maximum drilling efficiencies are being reached and how these could be transferred between plays. Learning topics include:

LATERAL LENGTH : Evaluating the economics of horizontal drilling to assess when drilling a longer lateral with more stages will yield a commercial rate of return

BUILDING THE CURVE : Exploring how to increase ROP on the build section to improve curve drilling efficiency

TORQUE & DRAG : Examining how torque and drag modeling can be utilized to increase ROP and reduce drilling costs

DRILLING FLUIDS : Assessing the costs and effectiveness of muds in relation to cleaning the hole, reducing torque and drag, maintaining well control and stability and ultimately, facilitating high levels of production

ROTARY STEERABLE : Discussing the efficiency of rotary steerable tools in the build and lateral sections along with failure rates and costs to establish whether they are worth the added expenditure

CEMENTING : Optimizing the application of cement to improve wellbore integrity and protect ground water at minimal costs

REGULATIONS : Examining current and future ground water protection and annulus pressure regulations to establish possible impacts on operations
