    Oil Well Planning

    How to plan for an Oil Well? Drilling optimization requires detailed engineering in all aspects of oil well planning, drilling implementation, and post-run evaluation Effective well planning optimizes the boundaries, concstraints, learning, nonproductive time, and limits and uses new technologies as well as tried and true methods. Use of decision support packages, which document the reasoning behind the decision-making, is key to shared learning and continuous improvement processes. It is critical to anticipate potential difficulties, to understand their consequences, and to be prepared with contingency plans. Post-run evaluation is required to capture learning. Many of the processes used are the same as used during the well planning phase, but are conducted using new data from the recent drilling…
