Your assignment for this project is to gather data for a site to design a drilling assembly. The information from surrounding wells and fields can be used to design the drill string and selecting the rotary drilling rig. The site selection process should consider the available data from offset wells in terms of formation properties and should have a minimum vertical depth of 8500 ft.
In your report include rotary drilling rig capacity and/or limitations to drill a new well at the selected field. The major part of the report should include the calculations related to the forces on the drill string. Report should contain the statement of the problem and the limitations and safety factors used for the design. Include all applicable constraints like social and environmental impact of the selected site in the report. Use appendix for detailed calculations and specifications. Some examples of data you can use in the preparation of your report aresite location and surface maps, formation contacts (or thicknesses), completion interval and type, fresh water and coal seam zones to be drilled through, type of fluid produced and their analysis, formation pressure, fracture gradients, well logs, production tests, and other related information on the subsurface.
