This app is designed for both iPhone and iPad.

This application provides practical simulations of the Dynamic Well Control on the Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) operations in the oil field services.

With Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD), when kicks occur, they are typically smaller, contained more quickly, and, in some cases, they may be circulated out through MPD equipment without drilling or circulation interruption.

This simulator is the new project based on the Drilling Simulator 2 available on our portfolio on the App Store, but specifically for dynamic well control on onshore and offshore operations (deepwater).

MPD System on this simulator:

1. RCD – Rotating Control Device
2. Annular Preventer (or Drill String Isolation Tool – DSIT)
3. Automated Choke for CBHP (Constant Bottom Hole Pressure), Constant Drill Pipe Pressure and Constant Choke Pressure.
4. RPD – Rig Pump Diverter
5. BPP – BackPressure Pump

Additional features:
1. Driller Interface based on Pressure Gauge, Weight Indicator, Rotary Torque gauge and Geolograph.
2. Choke Interface based on Hydraulic Choke Digital Panel.
3. Graph in full screen (with background color in black or white) for analysis.
4. Special screen layout optimised for iPhones 6 / Plus and iPad Pro
5. Auto/Manual Control on MPD Choke ONLY.

Note: For well control based on conventional rig choke panel, please buy the “Drilling Simulator 2”.

6. On iPad version, Three codes (admin, instructor, student) to view the gas into the borehole, the pressure at bottom, at shoe and at bop and to enable / disable the Lag Time (by adjusting the choke to change the kill pressure and drill pipe pressure, etc).

Other features also available:

A graphical very useful tool for training of roughnecks, derrickmen, drillers, toolpusher, drilling engineers and students in the well control procedures.

– Ability to drilling, kick detection, shut-in, stabilisation of pressures;
– Interactive System: no pre-set methods;
– Ability to apply control methods: Driller’s method, wait and weight, dynamic volumetric and static volumetric (lubricate and bleed);
– Hydraulics and Hydrostatics;
– Behavior of the kick;
– Applied with subsea stack or surface stack;
– Set well with until 4 sections: riser, casing, liner, open hole ;
– Set Drillstring with drillpipe1, drillpipe2, heavy weight, drillcollar1, drillcollar2

Kick Model in this simulator:

The model assumes that the kick starts as a single bubble at the bottom of the hole and migrates upward as a single bubble from the bottom to the surface. In underbalanced condition (BHP<Form Pressure) during control, the single bubble volume is incremented with the inflow volume from formation to the well.

Notes:

Others apps for Well Control available on our portfolio on the App Store:
– Drilling Simulator 2
– Drilling Hydraulics

Well Control Methods 2 for iPad

Well Control Methods 2 for iPad

 version 1.0

for both iPhone and iPad 

WCMethods2_1024_3

Available_on_the_App_Store_Badge_US_UK_135x40_0824

Also available apps for each method for both iPhone and iPad:

A new project designed for both iPhone and iPad.

This application uses the basic calculations of the methods to control oil wells after the occurrence of kick during drilling operations on floating platforms and landing rigs.

It is an useful tool to import data files to fill kill sheets from our apps: (Driling Hydraulics, Drilling Simulator 1 and 2, Kick Game 1 and 2, Kick Tolerance, LOT Simulator and Well Control Simulator 1 and 2) available for sale in our portfolio on the App Store.

It is can be applied on the field and also help in the understanding of the methods of well control.

Well Control Methods:

– Driller’s Method
– Wait and Weight
– Dynamic Volumetric
– Static Volumetric – Migration / Bleed
– Static Volumetric – Lubricate / Bleed – Top Kill

Others:

– Calculations of Riser Safety Margin;

This app was developed based on existing spreadsheets. There is no comparison with any other software.

Our goal was to create a low-cost application with the help of experts to share with drilling engineers, technicians, drillers, students and teachers of drilling engineering.

There is no intention to replace the professional softwares.

You can contribute with suggestions for improvements, correcting the translation to english, reporting bugs and spreading it to your friends.

Thanks

Well Control – Initial Circulating Pressure on deepwater

Well Control – Initial Circulating Pressure on deepwater

ICP_on_deepwater_001

On deepwater drilling, the subsea bop stack is installed at the well head (on sea bed). In kick condition, the BOP is closed and the flux is deviated to the choke at surface through the choke line. This line has a diameter normally of 3 inches and the frictional pressure losses will increase the pressure at shoe depth. This is a big problem on deepwater wells due to the formation pressure be fragile.

A method to compensate the choke line friction is to decrease the initial choke pressure of this value, monitoring the annulus pressure at the kill pressure gauge instead the choke pressure gauge when bringing the mud pump to slow circulation rate, like on a surface bop well control, and adjusting the choke to set the drill pipe pressure equal to the Initial Circulating Pressure (ICP) calculated by the formula ICP = SIDPP (Shut-in Drill Pipe Pressure) + Pump Pressure @ slow circulating rate when circulating through the drill string with return to the riser.

Some questions:

  1. Why to use the pump pressure with return to the riser if the circulation of the kick is with return to the choke?
  2. Why to set the choke fully open during the circulation to record the choke line friction?
  3. etc.

The answers for these questions are in the calculations in the next slides.
