Successful Practices - Drilling Operations: Deep Austin Chalk

As part of developing a guide to effective drilling operations, this work identifies and documents state-of-the-art drilling technology and practices for Deep Austin Chalk wells. Through industry surveys, organizations were found that were drilling effectively, and based on the best drilling practices from each of them, a complete Drilling Operations Plan for an archetypal well named "Successful Austin Chalk Well #1" was developed.

Summary:
Studies have shown that variance in drilling costs by as much as +/- 50% even for wells in the same geologic area with the same objectives can be reduced if operators employ only successful practices. As part of developing a guide to effective drilling operations, this work identifies and documents state-of-the-art drilling technology and practices for Deep Austin Chalk wells. Through industry surveys, organizations were found that were drilling effectively, and based on the best drilling practices from each of them, a complete Drilling Operations Plan for an archetypal well named "Successful Austin Chalk Well #1" was developed. The focus of the study was Washington County, Texas. As the Austin Chalk was developed, operators realized the exploitation potential of drilling deeper downdip wells. Some of the specific issues inherent in drilling those wells include higher temperatures and pressures resulting in problems with drilling fluid, measurement while drilling, mud motor, and other technologies. These problems and resulting technology and practice improvements are discussed in detail in the operations plan. The report includes lists of contributors to the study, with basin statistics and well lists in the appendixes.
