An operator planned to drill a well in an offshore field in the Asia-Pacific region with varied and complex geology. On previous wells in the field, multiple operators had experienced tight holes, well kicks, mud
losses, and stuck pipe in the upper 12¼-in. sections. While running liner into the lower 8½-in. sections, they tended to encounter dynamic losses, tight spots, and pack-off. Initially, the operator engaged Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE), to supply logging while drilling (LWD) services. It completed
its authority for expenditure (AFE) plan and job schedule by using assumptions for nonproductive time (NPT) and added costs
for drilling problems previously experienced
in the field. Seeing an opportunity to reduce
risk, time, and cost for the operator, BHGE
used data from previous well studies to generate an initial geomechanics-focused subsurface model. The model was then reviewed by drilling personnel with experience
in the field, and by the various BHGE product lines involved in the project. RiskGuard-Stability-Solution-Reduced-Risk-NPT-APAC-cs.pdf
