Torque/Drag Modelling

CES believes that proper evaluation of torque and drag is essential to drilling a successful well. If not evaluated, torque and drag can result in stuck pipe, pipe failure (and therefore fishing) or problems running production liner/casing in extended reach horizontal applications.

By providing accurate inputs to calibrate a wells Friction Factors, DePro is capable of accurately predicting torque and drag, allowing our clients to understand the effects of dog leg severity, drilling fluid, drill string selection and drilling parameters on their wellbore.

CES can provide our clients with torque and drag models through our morning updates or through Online PowerBI Dashboards. The ability to integrate the torque and drag information with PowerBI, clients can look-back at modelled wells in order to make comparisons, set performance benchmarks or directional/drilling parameter limitations. CES believes these visuals allow our clients to quickly and easily identify problems due to dog leg severity or buckled pipe.

Pipe Buckling Analysis and Side Force Analysis for various Open Hole Friction Factors, with the Cased Hole section FF set.

Sample Dashboard: SO Hook-loads for various Open Hole Friction Factors, with the Cased Hole section FF set at 0.22 for the tortured directional plan. With further insight into detailed casing and push pipe assembly information for the previously drilled wells, a friction factor may be calibrated and a more accurate proactive model provided.

For future, accurate modeling (Hydraulics and Torque/Drag), CES requires:

  1. Survey Data
  2. Wellbore Design (casing sizes – including tool joint OD/IDs, weights and setting depths).
  3. Drill String and BHA specs (including tool joint OD/IDs and weights).
  4. Full Liner specs (including item by item specs and weights, centralizer and/or stand-off band positions etc), and push pipe setup (XXXm HWDP followed by XXXm DCs etc).
  5. Fluid Properties (provided via the most current CES Mud Report)

KPI Integration

ADJUSTABLE METRICS

Prior to project start, CES will work with engineers to determine the desired visual parameters.

CES ensures that a fully integrated team is focusing on the internal development of technical solutions for clients.

Canadian Energy Services currently utilized an internally developed mud reporting platform to input data and provide reports at a field level. We leverage this data, synced to our internal data structure in order to generate reports and dashboard style analytics for our clients.

We currently provide analytics through CES developed PowerBI dashboards. Due to the industry’s shifting focus to big data in order to improve visibility and decision making, CES is taking strides to make data more accessible in the future.

Data Driven Experience

CES DEDICATION TO TECHNICAL SUPPORT

CES ensures that a fully dedicated team is focusing on the internal development of technical solutions for clients. CES offers safe and secure access to your data from anywhere. Offering customizable pre-calculated data fields, live access to field data, historical well data for detailed analytics - and more.

Live Client Dashboards (Costs, Properties, 3D Mapping)

Live Supply Chain (Load Management, QA/QC Metrics)

Detailed Well Planning

CES now provides operators direct access to their drilling fluids data in a digitally secure and easy to use manor. We have given the operator the ability to connect their current drilling data to the drilling fluids data we provide. This will give operators the ability to further analyze aspects of their operation and dive into the full picture of the well.

Using a condensed schema of our internal database the information can be easily pulled into numerous Business Intelligence tools, Power BI, Spotfire, Tableau, etc. The data can also be used outside of these analytic tools based on what the operators capacity is, the information can be exported straight to excel, or used ins SQL Management Studio.

Your data will be available to use directly from the field or warehouse as they sync their reports, giving you the ability to compare trends while the well is being completed. Using this in combination with historical well information that CES also has available becomes a powerful tool for optimization and analysis.
