Title (EN) METHOD OF DRILLING AND PRODUCING HYDROCARBONS FROM SUBSURFACE FORMATIONS
(FR) PROCEDE DE FORAGE ET DE PRODUCTION D'HYDROCARBURES A PARTIR DE FORMATIONS DE SUBSURFACE
Abstract:
(EN) A method associated with the production of hydrocarbons. In one embodiment, method for drilling a well is described. The method includes identifying a field having hydrocarbons. Then, one or more wells are drilled to a subsurface location in the field to provide fluid flow paths for hydrocarbons to a production facility. The drilling is performed by (i) estimating a drill rate for one of the wells; (ii) determining a difference between the estimated drill rate and an actual drill rate; (iii) obtaining mechanical specific energy (MSE) data and other measured data during the drilling of the one of the wells; (iv) using the obtained MSE data and other measured data to determine one of a plurality of limiters that limit the drill rate; (v) adjusting drilling operations to mitigate one of the plurality of limiters; and (vi) iteratively repeating steps (i)-(v) until the subsurface formation has been reached by drilling operations.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé associé à la production d'hydrocarbures. Le procédé comporte les étapes consistant à: identifier un gisement d'hydrocarbures; forer ensuite un ou plusieurs puits vers un emplacement de subsurface du gisement pour former des trajets d'écoulement de fluide permettant d'amener les hydrocarbures vers une installation de production. La mise en oeuvre du forage comporte les étapes consistant à: (1) estimer une vitesse de forage pour un des puits; (2) déterminer la différence entre la vitesse de forage estimée et la vitesse de forage réelle; (3) obtenir des données d'énergie spécifique mécanique (MSE) et d'autres données mesurées pendant le forage d'un des puits; (4) utiliser les données MSE et les autres données mesurées pour déterminer un facteur d'une pluralité de facteurs de limitation; (5) régler les opérations de forage pour atténuer un facteur de la pluralité des facteurs de limitation; et (6) répéter de manière itérative les étapes (1)-(5) jusqu'à ce que la formation de subsurface soit atteinte par les opérations de forage.
