A North Sea operator was working on a large gas field with difficult drilling conditions and a high cost per well. Very rapid pressure increases over a short depth interval were a major challenge in drilling the 12-¼-in. bit sections. The operator’s objective was to drill these as deep as possible before setting a liner, yet ensure there was still a safe standoff from reservoir pressures of up to 13,500 psi.
