Different methods and technology for reducing the number of well trips have been around for some years; however, as a result of the latest market down-cycle period, these approaches have gained fresh interest, creating a new wave of development in technology-based solutions. In this article I will go into further detail about three of Odfjell Well Services' main technologies on how to reduce tripping.
With the BHA hanging from a hang-off plate during three nautical miles of rig sailing, Equinor and Baker Hughes managed to drill eight top holes on two different templates way ahead of schedule.
In the current climate of lower oil prices, getting to total depth cheaper and faster is paramount. Companies are pushing the limits utilizing the latest drilling tools that drill faster; provide instantaneous corrections when steering; have more accurate logging; and overcome what was previously considered “un-drillable” wells.
Odfjell Well Services’ DrillRdillo™ Multi-Application Scraper was recently mobilized to Cameroon. Through the use of a combined drilling and wellbore cleanout BHA, the IOC was able to drill out a bridge plug, cement plugs and complete a wellbore clean-up in one trip.
The DrillRdillo from OWS has saved trips for clients from Myanmar to Angola; from The Middle-East to The North Sea. Here we present you with a quick overview of some stats and use cases from clients utilising the tool for a variety of applications.
Both equipment and competence were put to the ultimate test when Odfjell Well Services faced their heaviest casing string in Romania so far. Petrom – OMV subcontracted Rig Saipem 5870 was going to set 13 5/8” 14” Casing (535 Tones / 3801m) in the Baicoi field in Romania.
I often get requests for different tools from the end users, but they are almost never aware of the tool condition on delivery. A little attention to such an important detail could prevent trouble later. And it could be decisive for choosing the right service supplier. The lowest price and cost is always attractive, but do you know the condition of the tool you are about to run in the hole?

The days of specially designed equipment to take care of demanding tubular handling, like prod risers, are over. Clients now get the benefit of using standard equipment to handle even the most oddly dimensioned and fragile tubular safely.

Is it possible to drill a top hole to 42" in one run if the template is 38"? Here is the story of three parties putting their expertise together to save runs, time and money.
What question would you rather ask: –Where can I find the comments on connection #254, or –Why is there a higher torque on the connection you just made?
